pretty packaging: cheeky wine bottles.

It’s been a while since I’ve featured some pretty packaging here on lark + linen. I thought I’d end the drought with this series of simple, yet cheeky wine bottles that are extremely appropriate for many events.  


pretty poster.

Take a look at Allan Peter’s incredibly sweet silk screened art. When he found out his wife was pregnant, he designed these posters. What a wonderful gift idea (for future reference, of course. My friends aren’t quite there yet. No rush ladies.) So cute!

I stumbled upon yet another new and incredible blog. This one has a bit of a twist to it though.

Gary and Elaine post pictures of spaces cut out from catalogs and magazines, and add a touch of dialogue to poke fun at each image. They’re hilarious!  Take a look at a few examples below, and click here to see the rest.

“Oh dear, our Q-Tip decanter is almost 1/5th depleted.”

“I’d invite you in, but Gary and I got in a bit of a fight after he had one too many bottled waters.  He stormed out of the room so fast he only partially pushed in his chair!  And I was right in the middle of my yellow book…”

“Gary! I was just reading a book from the under-bed basket and I looked up to see that someone forgot to put away the twine last night.”

“Hi Nancy, it’s Elaine.  I’m going to be a little late for lunch.  I can’t find my hat or my back-up hat.”

Keeping in tune with Summery things, check-out this package design for hot dogs. I would for sure purchase these for a barbeque!

better than a love letter.

This kills me. Passive aggressive notes written by children. The first one was slipped under her parents door after she was sent to her room for misbehaving.

I love the dramatic flare of crossing out the love and replacing it with from. Good work, little girl! 

The next one is explained by little Eliots mother: “My husband and I were outside one evening, deaf to the ’screams’ of my 9-year-old son, Eliot. Apparently, he was in his room and bumped his fish tank, causing a small amount of water to slosh out, and he panicked. When we came back inside, we found the above note shoved under our bedroom door. Upon examination of said fish tank, we could find zero evidence of leak-springing… but then, we were also laughing pretty hard at the indignant note — especially its closing and postscript.”

Ha! His fish is named Bob (I think that’s the part I like the best).

These remind me of when my brother was in kindergarten and he had to write an apology letter to one of his classmates. It went exactly like this:
“Dear Mamoona, I’m sorry I told you that you smell. Love, James”
