Every now and then I look back at an item I found over 20 years ago and am happy to find that I am still collecting similar items and incorporating them into my decorating.
We found these Burnham vegetable can labels when we were first married and fell in love with the simplicity and bright colors of the graphics. It was fun selecting the individual labels that had meaning to us and creating affordable art for our kitchen. At the time, we had both moved to Ohio for our first jobs out of college and had rented a small "victory garden" plot in our town. It was a dry year, so we spent every night after work shuttling jugs of water from our apartment down the road to the garden. Peas, tomatoes and beans were our first attempt at growing vegetables and paled in comparison to the prize winners on these vintage labels!
Years later, we came across these Card Seed Co. seed packets at an antique show and added them to our collection. You have probably seen similar booths full of vintage labels and seed packets at antique shows. In researching my collection, I found a nice overview of vintage seed packets here at The Label Man.
