The Tale of the Pie and the Patty-Pan ~ Free Printable Gift Tags


'"Come in! and how do you do, my dear Duchess?" cried Ribby. "I hope I see you well?"

"Quite well, I thank you, and how do you do, my dear Ribby?" said Duchess. "I've brought you some flowers..."


It is fun to bring goodies to others! It needn't be anything excessive to show a bit of love! A few ribbons, a nice supply of cellphone bags, some sweet tags and you have yourself the makings of some adorable gift options! Duchess enjoyed giving bouquets of wildflowers. With a recycled jar and a touch of twine to fasten on one of these little cards, you have instant spring cheer!


Our free printable includes "Fresh from the Farm", "Sending Some Love", "Special Delivery" and simply "A Gift for You"


The illustration came from The Tale of the Pie and the Patty-Pan by Beatrix Potter and is one of my favorites! The pastoral background reminds me of scenes in the Victorian Era novel (and movie), Cranford. Well, moving along from my weird musings... 



Some fun but inexpensive gift ideas for adults include a few bags of your favorite tea, a small jar of honey, a little book and/or a pretty tea-cup or mug (these can be found at thrift stores and stored away for these special purposes). If you raise your own chickens, the "Fresh from the Farm" tag pairs nicely with a gifted dozen of homegrown eggs. "Special Delivery" can include a pot of your homemade jam, muffins and/or scones and would be a nice treat for someone who is under the weather.


Children can be given a little bag with the matching coloring book (free printable here), a few colored pencils and some stickers.


No matter what you decide, these little spring packages are fun to make and give! You will find our free printable gift tags HERE!

  3. Have you ever read Little Grey Rabbit stories by Allison Uttley? She is such a delightful character with exceptional homemaking skills. So wholesome.

  4. Thank you for your generosity!
    There are many blogs to choose from, but there are very few that edify, delight, provoke, train, and teach - even providing many lovely tools to accomplish learning well. Your lovely blog is one of two I look forward to with anticipation! (Don't you just love Jenny at Elefantz?)
    Of late I have unsubscribed from almost all of the blogs I thought might be good because they were a waste of precious time, (time I could be blessing my God and my family). You dear one NEVER waste my time! In fact you encourage me to diligence with joy. Thank you.

    2. Hi Jes,
      I wanted to stop by again and clarify my comment about other blogs that I have read...my original post sounded harsh and I did not want to come across that way at all. In my mind what I was trying to say is that I would get caught up in lots of different - fun blogs and I would find myself wasting precious time NOT that the blogs were a waste of time. Blogging is hard work and I do appreciate all the owners share. I just can't have an entire day of recess! lol And I have had a tendency to wander aimlessly through so many blogs. The Lord had to get my attention and correct my path. :)
      (BTW, I've been working on my Modern Herbal! I did add one more section - "Financially Speaking". I am enjoying being organized and prepared. Thank you!)

    3. I completely understand! :) And I am glad you are enjoying the Herbal. Your new section sounds excellent! Thank you so much for sharing! :)
