Design we love ♥♥ this week…
♥♥ Remember before email and Facebook messaging, we’d hand write cards and put them in the post? Rediscover the lost art of letter writing and send wishes of peace, love and joy this holiday season with Lady Pym‘s Leopard Collection of greeting cards. Blank or personalized, printed on 100% recycled paper with ivory envelopes, these gorgeous A6 cards are the perfect size to include a photo.
♥♥ Design rewind – In 1973, former American Football player Rosey Grier released a book about his rather unusual hobby. Called ‘Rosey Grier’s Needlepoint for Men‘, the book became something of a cult classic. And thanks to Extreme Craft, you can see some of the amazing photos from the book via Flickr.

♥♥ Having trouble find the perfect holiday gift for the person who has everything? How about someone Unicorn Tears? Washington-bases designer Oliver Munday designed some unusual packaging for some unusual products for the Museum of Unnatural History.
♥♥ Conservation cuties! Designed by nature, and delivered to you via Zooborns. Zooborns is a website that has all the latest news about baby animals being born in zoos and sanctuaries around the world. Who can say no to a baby panda?
♥♥ Arguably the cutest designers ever, Friends With You, have announced their latest exhibition, Rainbow City. Taking place in the Miami Design District, Friends With You say the forty piece environmental installation made up of air sculptures addresses the potency of interaction, ritual, and play. See it December 3-5, 2010 10am – 10pm daily, 140 NE 39th St Miami Design District.
