Citrus Labels


Forsythia and Lavender

I enjoy going to our local library at least once a week. It's so beautiful and comfortable inside. The children's section is fabulous. One room houses a baby grand piano while another displays local artists, photographer and quilter's work. Plus, the outdoor landscape and patio is so pretty and serene.

Citrus Label





 I never know what to expect in regards to displays at the library. One thing for sure, I try to remember to bring my camera along. In this case, I enjoyed capturing lots of Citrus Labels, although taking pictures through the glass can be challenging but here's a few to see.  They sell antique fruit labels and more at http://www.vintagedepotdirect.com/vintage-labels.html

Citrus Label Collection
 I was surprised to learn that there is a Citrus Label Society at http://www.citruslabelsociety.com/

Fruit and vegetable labels were lithographed and made for use on wooden fruit and vegetable shipping crates beginning in the 1890's.  I do recall seeing paper citrus labels on the ends of a wooden crate way back when . Do you?

Our library is about a 15 minute drive from our home. How is it where you are? For more lovely photos, visit Mellow Yellow Mondayand Blue Monday

Children of the World Memory Game

Inspired by the popular sing along title If You’re Happy and You Know It!, this memory game utilizes one of the greatest attributes of the book—the adorable children from all over the world—to encourage memory and matching skills. The object of the game is to match the boy and girl pairs according to the traditional dress, country name and color featured on each card. Illustrated By: Sophie Fatus
