ingredients

I have here a rather beautiful box of ingredients.

Can you guess what they're for?

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog - I feel that I have been absent far too long! I am not sure about those beautiful vials - is it something to do with dyeing?

It is gorgeous! Could they be ingredients possibly used in making hand made papers? x

natural dyeing?
wishing you a very Happy Birthday for tomorrow (hope i remembered right).
lots of love to you from all of us xx

I'm guessing they are for some papermaking. :) They look pretty perfect just as they are, though! :) Love that blue.

Ali said...

What a box of treasures. Are you making books?

Miriam Weaver said...

Are you making paper? I must confess I had no idea. What would I do without google?
Looking forward to seeing what you do with it all.

Ruth said...

Intriguing!! Looking forward to the answer. Love your blog :)

Papermaking is my guess too. I love the typed labels.

Cottage Garden said...

Very intriguing ... they are indeed beautiful little bottles. I'm guessing they may be used for dyeing and/or paper.

Look forward to seeing what you create Diana.

Louise said...

For something arty, and definitely not for cooking! x

Oh goodness. I have no idea. But I think they might be too beautiful as they are to un-box!

Hi, Diana,

Happy Birthday! I recently found your blog through MrsM's listings and have been reading through your posts and enjoying your pictures of that lovely area of the world (and Walter!)and your musings.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Er, not a clue.

I am thinking paper related but my goodness they are beautiful, I love those faded type face labels.

Sue said...

I have no idea what they are for, but they are so pretty!

Happy Birthday - I wish I were 47 again, this year I can add 20 years to that! But I'm only 17 inside, it's just the outside that has become older!
I adore bluebells and a walk in the bluebell wood is one of life's treats in springtime.
As for the various things - yes, paper making is my guess.

Happy Birthday Diana

Are they for dying fabric?

Griffin said...

Hmm, alchemy perhaps? A mystic Diana type of Alchemy? They look utterly fascinating.

Suse said...

I think you're dyeing.

(That e is very important).

Must be some sort of universal fabric repair kit, perhaps for repairing dresses, dolls or may be upholstery?
