"Cottage Rose" Pantry Labels by Mrs. Tittlemouse ~ Free Printable


"Fun Friday" this spring has officially begun! This year we are sharing the homemaking adventures of Mrs. Tittlemouse from the World of Beatrix Potter with features from her "Cottage Rose Collection". Do come in, have a cup of tea and we will explain!

"Once upon a time there was a wood-mouse,
and her name was Mrs. Tittlemouse.
She lived in a bank under a hedge..."
~ Beatrix Potter, The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse

Perhaps you are not acquainted with Mrs. Tittlemouse? She is a bit more reserved (okay, a bit more of the no-nonsense type...) than our dear Mrs. Tiggy-winkle and much less mischievous than precious Peter, however, once she gets to know you, you will find her quite hospitable. In fact, she can be very giving and wanted to share her precious pantry labels with you all today.


"Such a funny house! There were yards and yards of sandy passages, leading to storerooms and nut-cellars and seed-cellars, all amongst the roots of the hedge... There was a kitchen, a parlour, a pantry, and a larder."
~ Beatrix Potter, The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse


You see, Mrs. Tittlemouse practices the art of food storage like her mouse-mothers before her. Her home is blessed with storerooms, nut cellars, seed cellars, a pantry and a larder! To create order and  beauty, she has everything labeled very nicely with her cottage style charm. To be frank, she had chided me that although I have already shared some pantry labels (antique french style), they just wouldn't do for her country home decoration! And thus, her "cottage rose" collection was born. And truth be known, I was in for a bit of a change myself so I welcomed her bold suggestion.


Without further adieu, here are the links to Mrs. Tittlemouse's "Cottage Rose" Pantry Label Collection:

Nut and Seed Cellar Collection {Featuring Nut and Seeds Labels}
Pantry and Larder Collection {Featuring Basic Pantry Labels of Dried Goods}
Storeroom Collection {Featuring Seasonings, Spices and Such}

These even include gluten-free foods for her GF friends!



The labels can be printed out on plain paper, cut to size and affixed to your containers with glue (or decoupage) or print them out on sticker paper and cut to size. If you choose the first route, you may want to place a piece of packing tape or clear contact paper over each label to protect them.


For extra fun (this is "fun Friday" remember?), we also share a printable cover page and matching tabs in case you would like to prepare a copy of "Mrs. Tittlemouse's Manual of Household Hints and Delights". This is simply a safe place you can store all of Mrs. Tittlemouse's homemaking printables to have them handy until you are ready to use them (lots of fun goodies will be coming your way). You could also think of it as a "printable portfolio" collection to store all your favorite printables until you are ready to use them. You will find the free download here if you are interested. The cover page is designed to slide into the front of the binder as a title page insert. The tabs are best printed on card stock, affixed with glue to card stock and staggered as you attach them. ~~ Truth be known, I am having fun with this series and enjoyed creating this frivolous little "manual" even if no one ends up using it! :)

  1. Your labels are adorable, and I like the cover page, especially. By the way, my teen granddaughters are visiting this week, and one evening we watched Miss Potter together as they'd never seen it. They were duly impressed. :)
    Hope your weekend is fabulous!

  18. I love these pretty pink labels! Thanks for sharing them :-)
    I'm having a lot of fun looking around your site.
    My apartment isn't very big so I have a "still corner" and cabinet
    instead of a room. But people are enjoying my results. :-)

    PS - The Coarse sea salt says "Course" instead of "Coarse".

  22. These are so wonderful! I love Beatrix Potter. I had to laugh as I was reading the beginning of the story...I thought for a moment we'd wandered into a Hobbit Hole! LOL

  23. Jes,
    You always amaze me with you homemaking talent! Thank you for the beautiful labels!
    I wondered where you bought your jars? They seem so uniform and would like to have jars all the same size to affix these labels to ~SMile... Thank you!

    1. Thank you!! :) These are recycled coconut oil jars. I just save them up until I have a "set" and then use them for projects such as this. Hope this helps! :)
