fresh and renewed – georgian bay dairy waxed milk carton

October 9, 2013

A couple of weeks ago I introduced you to a vintage waxed containers I repurposed into a vase, I have another waxed container for you today.

A waxed milk carton from Georgian Bay Dairy from Owen Sound, Ontario. Not sure of the date on this milk carton but I can tell it is vintage from the three digit phone number of the dairy printed on the front, phone 477.

This milk carton was another Aberfoyle Antique Market find – I was drawn to the orange font, it’s perfect condition and the fact that it is from Owen Sound, Ontario dairy. I have a lot of family from Owen Sound so it is a nice keepsake.

For the design, I love combining orange, pink and red together for fall so the orange font on the carton inspired the floral arrangement.
