Grand designs

I've been looking at some of my birthday presents and am struck by the volume of good design out there. What do you think of these lovelies?... can you guess what they are?







Paper napkins! Design is everywhere these days... maybe it always was?



My sister gave me some wonderful towels from design-legend Orla Kiely...



... and the Mr did promise (and plant) me a rose garden. More of a grand design, symbolic and decorative :) I'm feeling very privileged, lucky + loved.



Hope it's a good weekend for you too.

Hey, those napkins are so you - the colours and style! I think the whole world has become so design savvy over the last decade. When I had my first child twelve years ago there was nothing of great style for babies clothing and nursery decoration. Now one could argue it's all become a little excessive in that area....just for an example...what do you think? hey thanks for your lovely blog comment - I've sent you an email re lino tute! XXX.

Beautiful garden - fresh & inviting! Happy Birthday Kylie.
My visual eye scannned your pics before reading info, and I was certain they were your designs (re: napkins) how very you.
