Recession busting design from John Lewis

So today I braved the crowds to do a spot of Christmas shopping at the Trafford Centre. I picked up these gorgeous thank you cards and note pad from Waterstones, which are by Rosehip. Here also are some delectable samples from the oh so stylish and dependable John Lewis. It great to see a big store pushing forward with design led products in uncertain times. It's surely been a part of their secret of success. It's interesting that the designs on the cards do not suit any varnishing, flitter or tip ons, and retain a very up market feel as a result. Cost savvy or what? Definitely a case of less is more. I only have one little it me or does Santa's sack on the merry-go-round, at a quick glance, look like a horse parp...or is that just my potty mind? Well, I have had a wee spot of red wine : )
