Y'all! I forgot to write a post for today! I had a Board of Selectmen's…
DIY Vanilla Update
You remember the homemade vanilla that I made a few weeks ago, right? The time has come to start distributing this deliciousness and I want to show you the labels that I made for it.
I got round printable labels at Michael’s and then went on the company website to download a template for them. I played around a bit with the font and color and finally settled on a design I liked. I had to actually tape the strip of labels to a sheet of 8 1/2 X 11 paper in order to get it to feed correctly through my printer but once I figured that out it went very quickly.
I am very happy with how they look and I had fun taking a few glamour shots of the bottles. Now I can’t wait to try the vanilla!

Carole, not only is this a lovely gift but I cannot believe how
lovely the label is! When I first looked at the picture I thought
you had purchased a new vanilla! I have to do this next year.
Hopefully I can find your recipe. Actually I should find it now and print it! Very nice.
They look gorgeous–what a lovely gift, Carole! (I love your festive nail color, too!) Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Carole,this photo is wonderful, what a great gift and beautiful label.
Enjoy the holidays.
The bottle is lovely! Can’t wait to hear what you think of the taste!
Beautiful presentation! Can’t wait to hear about the taste. Good vanilla makes all the difference in baking. Pardon me while I get out my cookie sheets.
Very pretty! I have vanilla ready to decant, too, but I’m not sure I’ll have such pretty labels!
They look great. I’ll try that with my Elderberry Liquor that is ready to be bottled.
Looks great, and what a wonderful photo!
Very pretty, Carole! I bet that’s delicious stuff. ; )
Wonderful gift and beautiful bokeh!
You are so wonderfully crafty!
That looks great. I’m sure that it will be a huge hit.
That looks super cute! I woke up this morning and told Lino that I was going to make vanilla for gifts — he said, “what about the bottles.” Oh, good point! Next year! Bring on the granola!!
How cute! Well done!
I’m a copy cat! This year i made your neopolitan cookies for a swap, and next year I’m making Vanilla… and I can’t count the number of pairs of socks i’ve made with your pattern! I must be a Carole wanna be!
Thank you for your inspiration and for sharing your life.
Merry Christmas my internet friend!
Mmmmm, I bet it smells divine! Love the labels & love the picture 🙂
twinkle lights make everything look glamorous, don’t they?! I’m sure the vanilla tastes as good as it looks!
I love everything about this! The idea, the effort and care, the awesome photograph, the holiday nail polish…. Classic (and Classy) Carole!
I labeled mine today too…thank you SO much for the idea! It’s been a lot of fun. 🙂
Great labels….I’ll have to search them out at Michael’s. I also made the vanilla recipe you posted. For labels, I just made some hand lettered labels and used shipping tape to affix them. Still looks good, but I like your stickable labels. Merry Christmas!
Ooo, lovely! I made peach brandy and haven’t been able to find bottles. I’m glad to have found a source!
