Ok, I know you're probably thinking, not ANOTHER post on Mini Cooper!!  
Please indulge me for a second - I couldn't resist showing this miniature Mini with Paul Smith's signature stripes. I can't help thinking what a kicky little accessory it would be to have around to "up" the fun factor at home - forget the fact that I don't have kids. It combines 3 things I love, Paul Smith's design, stripes and Mini Cooper. It's made by classic British toy brand Corgi and available here. What a perfect stocking stuffer!

Can a person really see too much of a well design mini cooper? I would love to own one; perhaps an adult version of Paul Smith's design!

Anne sending all my best to you for a tremendous holiday xx

All I hope is that my sons bring a girl home just like you, one with wit, style and a love of stripes.
Wishing you a mini-merry christmas.

Totally adorable - LUV it! One of my best friends received a Mini Cooper from her husband for her 50th - now that's what I call a good birthday present!

hello anne

came to your blog via the zhush and your amazing renderings and i am so glad i did!

love everything i see, this post stopped me and had to chime in.
i finally received my mini cooper, and am a freak about them too. shortly thereafter i was looking for a cardigan corgi with high requirements; male, runt of litter and a cardigan is hard to find. heard of wonderful pups, 10 hours away and had to call. when i told her my strict requirements she said "well yes, i have just that pup and his name is mini cooper!
he is the dog of my dreams and we have been happily together 4 years now. i too do not have children, so he is much spoiled.
well sorry, that was to see more of your site!
