A Few of My Favorite Things...Fruit Labels

I think I bought my first fruit label during college. It's from an orange crate and it is a sweet dog named Fido. It wasn't the typical dorm decoration, but I had a liking for American decorative arts even then. I didn't think about fruit labels for another 10 years and then I couldn't get enough. I have fruit labels in the kitchen, where I have my tartan collection and Fido. They are in the bedroom -- big city and New York labels -- and a mixed group on one wall of the bathroom. I like the bright colors and even brighter imagination displayed in them. Is anyone else a fruit label fan?

Update on Tim McGraw...Mary and I are going to see Tim McGraw on Monday night. It's a live webcast at 8:00 P.M. We'll be at the Ed Sullivan Theater, where the Letterman Show is taped. I got no instructions about what to wear and you can be assured that I will have my camera for whatever time I can take photos. I wish I could bring all of my blog friends!
Wishes for a wonderful Thursday!

I love fruit crate labels. They are amazingly strong graphically.

How neat that you collect fruit labels. For me, the older the better. I love, love, love antiques. :) No, don't have many labels, but it makes me want to start looking for some.

Um, Tim McGraw! I just got goose bumps typing his name. (lol) You will have a blast, I am sure. Oh and yes make sure you are paying attention to his singing and not his jeans! (hahaha) Okay, how can you not look when those jeans fit as nicely as they do on him. Faith is a lucky woman. :) I can hardly wait until you share, share, share!!!

Hugs and blessings,

Wow you belong to the rare group of fruit label collectors. And you have framed them very attractively.
