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?
