Spring is here in full swing and it was almost 80 yesterday. Last week at the estate sale I got a box of vintage plant labels.
The box got to me thinking that I have a fun array of vintage garden/floral items that make up a fun collection. Most of it is collected due to the graphic nature of the item or its quirkiness.
The Garden Club must have been a big manufacturer of various garden related items. Pole Pins in original packaging.
Garden Club company again. Vintage crumple wire in original packaging.
This note was tucked into the slot when I bought it. It reads, "Dad made this for Powell Valley Sunday school birthday offerings about 1925. They repainted and discarded it". I am glad that it was saved and I found it.
It also contained a huge color insert in the catalog. It is poster size and the colors are vibrant.
Even more awesome is the flip side of the poster. Daffodils!
Fun stuff and how I love spring and summer and all the flowers that come with it! If you have an idea for a future collection challenge, leave me a comment and finish the sentence "Show me your collection of ____." You never know what a new season will bring.
