A Bad Case of the "I Wants"

Well, I am back from The Mart in Atlanta, and let me just say that I had an absolutely wonderful time. The only bad part about going to market is it gives you a bad case of the "I Wants". Visiting all the fabulous show rooms just makes my wish list explode.

On my ever growing wish list, one of my favorite items happens to be a set of vintage seed packet prints. Denise (my oldest sister) and I both fell in love with these prints as soon as we spotted them. I couldn't help but imagine how fabulous they would look in my kitchen. I think taking pictures of the products is rude, but I couldn't help but snap a quick picture of one of the prints. The picture (pumpkin seed packet print) is crooked and poor quality because I had to pretend I was talking on my phone while I snapped it.

We were not able to order the prints because the opening minimum for this store was way more than we were willing to spend, so I have scoured the internet trying to find similar prints.
Here's what I have found so far. (found here).

What do you think? Do you think it would make a cute kitchen print?

Look at The Graphic Fairy blog. She posted some vintage seed packets last week I think. You could print them on cardstock or even leftover resume paper and then frame them. The best part is that The Graphic Fairy is FREE. Pick up some Goodwill Frames and you've got some uber cheap decorations...the best kind!


OMG!!! You should see the pic I have in my Breakfast Nook. You would love it. I will have to post on my blog. But, it was a big sheet of paper I purchased from a scrapboook store and had it matted and framed for a pretty penny!!!!

I read your post and thought I had seen that exact pumpkin print somewhere recently. And I sure did. You can find it at The Graphics Fairy. Here's the direct link: http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/2010/07/vintage-halloween-clip-art-adorable.html
And the best part is that it's FREE! I've used several of her images for artwork in my home and in some of my collage work. Good luck.
