Folksy finds: birds

Birds have been a bit of a theme for me this week with the two bird coats, so I thought I would share some bird-inspired items from Folksy.

This bird pendant from Pennydog is silverplated and imbedded in a lozenge of black resin, very pretty!

Here is a striking "The Girl and the Bird" print from Blackoutwell. I love the colours she used and the simplicity of the drawing.

It was hard picking just one bird from Lupin's shop, but this bluetit felt brooch is my favourite. She's absurdly talented, I could do a whole post about just the things I like from her full shop!

I love unusual notebooks. I like to look, I occassionally buy, but I hardly ever write in them because my perfectionist nature means I don't want to 'waste' or 'ruin' them. But I love them. Here is a Travel Journal from Asking for Trouble covered with a vintage 1950's map of Africa with a vintage bird stamp. Vintage is cool, recycled vintage even cooler. I'm a big fan of her shop too, full of Kawaii and Japanese inspired goodies!

Check out this cute little guy from Feltmeup Designs, made from organically farmed merino wool needle felt.

Bbel's shop is full of bird-inspired jewellery! This hummingbird necklace is an original drawing on acrylic and then strung from a chain, so unique!

I really like these pretty gift tags from Paperleaf, which are Gocco printed onto Manila.

Babies would be rapt looking at the luscious colours in this bright, Mexican-inspired bird mobile from Pippin.

I think this tiny owlet from DaisyLily is adorable. The hanging ribbon really sets it off well and those eyes are irresistable.


  1. oooh thanks for featuring my gift tags! I adore anything with birds on it and this is a great selection :)

  2. I love the notebook. reminds me of my stamp collecting days:)

  3. Ehee - I featured Lupin's brooch in my Folksy roundup this week too:

    Love that journal with the maps on. I hae real difficulty writing in pretty notebooks as well.
