Im Loving It.....




Fast food chain McDonalds (Australia) along with Leo Burnett advertising have created a beautiful, whimsy'Lighter Choices' television commercial that is so delightful to watch and so effective in capturing ones attention - well it stops me and my boys in our tracks to stare at the TV.

Pretty butterflies float in the breeze, settling on stalks of wheat. Deli Choice filled rolls waft out of the wheat. Apple blossom bursts open tp release little Thumbelina-like figures as muffins float by in the background. A Fruit Smoothie plane flies past a raisin toast bicycle.

  2. hi there, in answer to your question about the printed cushion... I simply took it to our local printing place. :)

    but I do know that you can buy fabric in different weight that goes through a printer. It's the latest fad in quilting but we live in a small town and that sort of stuff is likely to arrive in five years time!!

  3. I too love the Fornasetti plates. When we lived in Wellington, I used to stroll through Kirkaldie and Stains in my lunch hour. That's "the" department store in Wellington. Anyway, I used to see these plates in there. They are fantastic.

  4. The ad is beautiful! But I never go there - even my boys will choose any other restaurant! I can't eat wheat or dairy, so eating out is very restricted anyhow!
