Antique Seed Catalog Reinvented – 1894 Henderson’s Farm Frame

I had seen many Seed Catalogs online, but until I started researching systematically, I had no idea what an abundance of vivid, bright imagery is available! Today I picked a yummy Strawberry page from a 1894 Henderson’s catalog:

And who better to model the frame, than a set of lovely farm girls? Again a picture from the Petrine Wiik Collection. Unfortunately this one is a bit blurry, but I loved it so much I simply had to include it in my album:

  1. Once again such a beautiful set here today. And this is really the best picture to give you a summer feel, cause what is more summer like than strawberries? I absolutely LOVE strawberries and to me that is the ultimate picture of summer, and just by seing this, I can almost taste that sweet taste of them and just the smell makes one feel sooo good ha ha ha. So this is just sooo perfect in my world and sooo beautifukl. Thanks sooo mch for sharing all these sweet friend.

    1. Thank you Hunny! I too LOVE strawberries, I try to buy a basket every day during the short weeks while the local strawberries are for sale 🙂 Let’s plan for lots of strawberries this summer! xoxoxo

      1. That definitely sounds like a great idea to me ha ha ha, and I know Tascha will totally agree to that too ha ha ha. We could both easily eat strawberries in any possible way all summer, if we could just get them ha ha ha

      2. It’s starting to sound a lot like a plan 😀 I’m so excited, and the girls are practicing their “Danish”…hahaha! They both agree that they’ll just speak English if nothing else helps… sooo resourceful hehe! So Legoland: check! Strawberries: check! Pool: check! I think there is nothing missing, we just have to wait it out now!!! 😀
