You might have already guessed, but I'm a tad bored of the bird motif that's everywhere at the moment. Sometimes it's fine, and there's some really great designs out there. But putting a bird on something does not make it an instant design classic. Not if Asda are doing it.
But then I found these really unique bird brooches at The Black Rabbit. And these made me sit up and take notice. They're £17.50 each and well, just look at them.
One for sorrow? Not when the magpie looks this pretty.
Apparently this little fella is a curlew. He's a cute little thing, isn't he?
Nice to see someone doing an original take on the motif. More of this please!
