Pretty Seed Packets

Hudson Valley Seed Library, Amy Ross, Molly RauschMy pen pal Danielle sent me these fantastic seed packets for Christmas. They are from the Hudson Valley Seed Library as part of their special Art Packs series. Various artists’ works are used on the seed packet, making them perfect for gifts! (Danielle, you know me so well!) She sent Isis Candy Shop tomatoes, packet art done by Amy Ross.Hudson Valley Seed Library, Molly Rausch, Japanese stamp The other one, Tender Green Komatsuna, features a painting by Molly Rausch, famous for her postage stamp paintings. If you look closely, you can see that the base of the painting is a vintage Japanese postage stamp, and Molly, with her imagination and a teeny, tiny paintbrush, added the surroundings. You can see the entire painting here…isn’t it fantastic?

This gift blends all of my favorite things: mail, postage stamps and gardening! And, especially when windchills are hitting the -30°F mark, I’m really dreaming of gardening today.

    I can’t agree more. Molly Raunch’s painting is amazing!!!!

  2. I love those! I wouldn’t mind having one or two of those packs framed up in my house. I think that it would make for a suitable piece of artwork. 🙂 Plus, I can use the seeds.
