Something fun in the mail today! 1920's seed pack labels!

Look what came in the mail today:

from Simply French Vintage.  Who are actually English and spend their summers in France antiquing.
Vintage 1920's seed pack labels!  Check out the fabulous carrot illustrations.
French breakfast radishes are apparently not called French in France.
Cauliflower, Chantenay Carrots, and a lovely Tomato.
Red Lettuce (oops, actually Chicory) and Basil.  I'm going to add some of these images to my listings.

A big part of why I like these so much is because much of the inspiration for Cubit's came from watching the kitchen gardens go by out the train windows in France.  I had been working on the business idea for a little while but those gardens really helped me narrow things down.  Growing food, no matter where you live,  is what it's all about.

Here's an Etsy treasury I made for Euro Week celebrating those same gardens.


  1. oh i love these!! and wouldn't that be nice - summers in france! :)

  2. Those are so much fun! Love the colors.

  3. Those are so cute. Are they going in your kitchen?

  4. I can't decide where to put them! kitchen or office.

    And yes! Summers in France! Let's make it happen.

  5. Oh man those are gorgeous! The colors, the style. Simply lovely. Thanks for letting us know about Simply French. I am heading over there now to check out their store!
