vintage seed packets

recently, i have been admiring old seed packets on etsy... i really love the graphics and colors and typography.  a few weeks ago, i was sorting through a bunch of pictures and frames at a thrift store - and to my amazement, i found a rather homely brown frame with a real treasure inside!  there were four seed packets mounted on burlap...and it was marked either 50 cents or $1...i can't remember.  as soon as i got home, i removed the contents from the backing and have been admiring the beauty of these since!


a rather peculiar name for a flower?!? hmmm.








here's the burlap backing that the packets were taped to...


the dates on these are 1915 and 1916 - aren't they just so pretty?

Wow, those are gorgeous. I wonder where those flowers were grown and if they still come up every spring!

The graphics are lovely. There is just something about those aged packets and the illustrations that speak volumes about the beauty held inside, ready to be grown, to deliver more beauty to this world. Thank you for the lovely distraction.
