Antique Seed Catalog Reinvented – 1908 Child’s Frame

While researching the Antique Seed Catalogs, I have really noticed the Geranium images! Today’s 1908 Child’s frame is (again) based on Geraniums. I have sort of thought of Geranium only as cluster flowers, while indeed the single flowers are really pretty!

I t-h-i-n-k this is one of Petrine’s sisters, posing as a seated model, but I need my friend’s confirmation to say for sure.

  1. I totally agree these catalogs are really beautiful, and thanks sooo much for sharing all these goodies here with us always. I really hope, I´ll be able to sit down and make a huge frame with all these and my entire family in them, when we get back, as I know exactly who´s going into which frame, Soo beautiful these frames are, You are such a clever lady to make these things. I absolutely love these.
