Here is a quick sneak peek at a few of my favourite birdy trinkets around at the moment -
|Owl Pendant from Marc by Marc Jacobs|
|Owl Clutch bag - Judith Leiber|
|Bird chain bracelet - Urban Outfitters|
This amazing little chap was handmade by the lovely Catherine Grimaldi - a Brighton based artist and illustrator. She has made this little critter and a number of others for Rosemary Harris, a performance poet who is about to start a show called 'Roo in a Suitcase' in collaboration with the Half Moon Theatre in Hackney. Made from recycled toys found in jumble sales, car boots and charity shops, she truly is a taxidermist of unloved toys. I might have to steal this one though, I'm a little bit in love with him. Having said that I don't think my local would be that impressed if I walked in with him on my head or pulled my purse out of him to order my pint. I'll have to stick to this bag instead, which is quite frankly boring in comparison. Found in a charity shop in the New Forest a few years back it does however add a lovely vintage twist to my outfit.
