Twitter Wine! Kinda…

05.jpg

I was skimming through the website of Yiying Lu The person who designed the Fail Whale and noticed that she’d done the design for the label of ASDA’s own brand California wine…

I can only find the “California Fruity White Wine” on ASDA’s website but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the others in store.

Hows that for a nice bit of social networking trivia?

Update: I’ve also found the Rose, Zinfandel and Juicy Red on ASDA’s website.

Film Canister Wedding Invitation

I’m sure I know a fair few people who would love these wedding invites, they are made from re-purposed film cannisters (soon to be a rare comodity?) . These were put together by Trevor and Larissa of ambient studios.

As two passionate photographers we decided to try to turn our mutual obsession with photography into a theme.  Since both Trevor & I enjoy shooting film on the side for personal projects it seemed only natural that we integrate this somehow into our day.  (apart from actually supplying our photographers with film for their cameras of course!)
The result is a collaboration between Trevor & I and an invitation that took an assembly line of 5 to create.  We had to make about 40 after all was said and done and I was lucky enough to have the help of my ladies and a little bit of wine!  (Thanks girls!)  It was tons of fun and completely worth it…

Corkers – Pushpin Cork Creatures

You know how you are supposed to turn up to a dinner party with a bottle of wine… Well that’s a little too grown up, so why not make it a little more amusing by adding a pack of these “Corkers” to the wine. They let you turn your wine or champagne cork into a little animal. Just make sure you don’t give them a screw top bottle…

Human Heart Carafe


@Avarinne must see this! IT combines her love of wine and her cardiovascular research into one awesome whole, also the other Carafe is meant to be filled with water and no one I know drinks more water than Osmosis Girl!

This heart shaped Cuore carafe was designed by artist Liviana Osti and is composed of two carafes one to be filled with wine the other with water, it’s aupposed to be a reminder that we should drink as much wine as water to to maintain cardiovascular health or something like that…

I’m trying to find out if you can buy this, the article says they it ws designed as part of a challenge to students at the Bolzano University by Milan showroom Paolo C. No indication of whether they sell it, but it they do I assume it will cost mega bucks!
