How sweet is this packaging? It's so fun & festive! The motif (featuring a string of vintage-style Christmas lights) was even translated onto dessert plates for the 2009 Kate Spade holiday range in the US a few years back.

Here's a little fashion aside to tie in with the design component of this blog. I really like Australian design duo Sass & Bide's last collection of very orange & very quirky pieces. Sass & Bide's last collection is currently on sale, so now's a great time to snap up some of their offerings.

So....I'm kind of addicted to buying books. My latest acquisition is a book I've been meaning to commandeer for quite a while. It's called 'The Flavour Thesaurus' by Niki Segnit. What originally caught my eye was the colourful, cutting-edge cover design. What won me over was the subject matter of food matching. The book dissects 99 ingredients & tells you what other ingredients work well with it. Saffron & white chocolate...who knew? The clever designers behind this remarkable book are 'Grade Design Consultants' in the UK.
