While researching images of vintage seed packets for a project I'm working on, I found some pretty incredible reference.  (A first-prize-winning tomato being pulled by a cricket and piloted by a Karner Blue butterfly?!)- I love that image.  I was also surprised by the number of designs anthropomorphizing vegetables.  I'm always drawn to the idea of anthropomorphic things, but it's not every day you see peas and carrots with faces.  I notice that I number of my favourites are from Toronto, as well.  I think I've found some pretty lovely reference to go on!


  1. beautiful! good finds =] i love looking at old labels.. like canned vegetables/fruit too.

  2. I like the pair of peas. What a classy couple!
