Arsenic and Old Lace: October Country Living

Stepping over to the dark side- a very scary assignment from Country Living- designing toxic antique apothecary labels for you to download, print, and adhere to vintage-style bottles of your favorite libations and other creepy potions in your Halloween decor. The directions are on page 88, and on the Country Living website HERE, along with the free label downloads. Once designed, I crafted the antique-style labels utilizing full sheet label stock from (Also available in 10-sheet sets.)Check out all of the other DIY Halloween decorations in the October issue of Country Living!

    Oh so cool! When my brother was young, he was always suspicious of any new dish and would ask “What’s in it?” Eventually, my mum grew tired of this and said “arsenic” so it’s become a family saying. This will make a great present for him! 🙂

    Rather fun, especially since I’m currently reading “The Poisoner’s Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York” and just finished a section on cyanide and am in to the second section on arsenic 🙂
