Pretty Labels For Housekeepers

 


  

If I could give each and everyone of you a tiny little gift, then these orgeous little books full of labels and stickers would be it because they are quite simply the putteriest, prettiest, cheapest little treat a housekeeper could have…



Coming from two of my favourite companies both the French General labels and the Cath Kidston stickers are equally as charming...

And there is just no end to the things you can do with them, from labelling home-made stores of jams and chutneys to creating the prettiest freezer around, using them as book-plates, wrapping books in vintage paper and labelling them, popping them on gifts, using them to prettify the plainest of envelopes, creating little tissue paper wrapped blocks of the plainest soap to bring a little French style chic to the bathroom, labelling home-made cleaning products and using them to add a darling little touch of home to brown-paper bags of sandwiches…



 



Truly I am obsessed with them: all my friends have received them as little gifts from me, and every time I think I have worn out their uses I will discover something else just begging to be labelled with a little bit of love...

I bought both of these last winter, and I have enjoyed them so much... I have used them in so many different ways. I may order more now that you've got me thinking about them... Hugs.

Those are gorgeous! Waterstones sometimes has the CK labels in stock if you don't want to order online.

I have had the Cath Kidston ones for a while - and I love them! I found the French General ones (yes, in Waterstones when I was sniffing books...) whilst Xmas shopping with my husband and daughter, and despite my best efforts at heavy hinting, they sadly were not found in my stocking Christmas morning.......*sniff*..... So I think I shall just have to treat myself don't you think???!!!

Thanks for reminding me about them! x

Funny--I just featured the Cath stickers in a post! I haven't bought any of these stickers yet but could definitely use some.

Puttery Post!
