I DIG THESE!!!! Since I love to mix old and new, common and fancy, naturally I love these family crest illustrations from Harriott Menocal of Happy Menocal. She started in advertising and became so well known for her story board illustrations, she decided to strike out on her own. These are used for wedding invitations as well as anywhere else a unique touch is needed. I've always liked the idea of having a small and tasteful house and naming it something very regal and castle-like. People would instantly know you had a good sense of humor and of course the places you could display the name are endless...towels, high ball glasses, cocktail napkins and so on. I'm thinking a smoking jacket might be in order as well. What-a-burger in my kitchen has never seen such finery!
