Vintage seed labels

Hello Lovelies,
How's your Sunday going ?
Mine has been super busy so far. .....Up before eight , washer on . Breakfast then helping boys with their homework. Next more washing and getting boys ready for Rugby. Thankfully Mr BM takes them so I went out for a run ( Up to 5 miles now ...yay ) Once I got back there was a tiny bit of bright weather so I took some more pics for this post, (see above) then peeled the veg for dinner.
Upon the males return I took youngest  to his swimming lesson and called in the shop for a few bits. Next oven on , more washing , cook dinner , eat dinner , load dishwasher ( wonderful invention  :0))
Phew,I think I deserve a little blog time now .

I've got some pretties to share today . I was lucky enough to win silverpebbles vintage seed label giveaway recently and this is what I received ....

It's a kit to make some pretty bunting with these gorgeous flower pictures, Ooooh so stunning ....

I've strung some up from the bottom of my mirror on the chimney breast, using the jute and tiny pegs Emma supplied, they make me very happy...

Emma makes gorgeous jewellery too, do that a look at her blog, it's very pretty.  And look what she included in my parcel ........

They are made using crystals from the 1930's and seed pearls . I really love these Emma ...they are so me ....Thank you !!.
No wonder we love spending time in blog land ,bloggers are so generous . Not just with giveaways but also encouragement and support which is invaluable :0)

Right, I'm off to read a few of my favourite blogs and spread the love with some encouraging comments , then it'll be back to the family stuff .... only uniforms, packed lunches, sorting and putting away 5 peoples washing !!
Wouldn't change a thing ,I really love my family ( good job :0))

  15. Dear Jacquie, lovely lovely lovely! Those vintage seed labels are just so great! I was working some years in a small very old seed shop. There was a huge wooden furniture with lots of small drawers for all the seeds and so many lovely seed-envelopes! Your bunting is unique and so beautiful!

    Have a lovely week! Teje

    I love labels you can do so much with them, I've noticed on the seed displays they are going back to the old fashioned style much nicer.

  24. I am so thrilled to see your bunting hanging up! It's made my day, and so has the image of your little earrings. I'm SO glad you like them - jewellery can be so personal and tricky to get right.

    Have a great week x

  25. Oh and your Cornishware - what a fabulous idea! It's perfect!

  26. How lovely! The seed packets remind me so much of the the ones my dad used to use back in the day! I always had a little patch of the garden where I used to sow pansies, forget me nots and night scented stock. Happy days!
