Apothecary Label

So I got my partner for the swap I'm involved in over at Craftster.org. Then I realized that when I need to send things in plastic bags, I wanted a label to go on top of them. Using some wonderful vintage graphics from The Graphics Fairy(check that website out!! I was drooling over all the images) and various fonts from Dafont I Photoshopped together a 3.5 inch wide label for small plastic bags.

I was definitely going for a vintage apothecary label sort of look. I plan on writing in the item on the line using my ink and quill pen so that way I can just print out a whole page of these blank labels to save paper. I suppose these would come in handy if I ever decide to open a shop... hah!

Other than that I've decided to start wearing skirts and dresses more often. Before I would wear a pair of torn up jeans and an old band t-shirt with a smart looking cardigan. I always buy clothing at the thrift store and make something frilly and girly and never end up wearing it. I've decided to start, it's a waste otherwise. For the past 3 days I've worn 2 dresses and a skirt and I don't plan on stopping. I even picked up a vintage sleeveless plaid dress at the thrift store today. It needs to be taken in, but I'm excited about it.


You are The Magician


Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.


Eleoquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing,
you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.


The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. Reflecting this is the fact that the Magician is represented by Mercury. He represents the gift of tongues, a smooth talker, a salesman. Also clever with the slight of hand and a medicine man - either a real doctor or someone trying to sell you snake oil.

Also, don't steal the label. Or I'll hex you!! :)

That is a nice label indeed. I almost like it as much as my own :p lol

We have a very similar taste in aesthetic it seems. I am glad I found your site. I think i will hang around some.

I have scoured Dafont.com for the fonts you used in your apothecary labels, but alas, I could not find it! Could you ease inquiring minds (or mine at least hehe) and let us know what fonts you used? I found a cursive that's similar but not exactly the same and came nowhere close to finding the font used for the "Apothecary" part. MANY THANKS!! -Cassi :]
