I've got a bit of a crush on ugliness at the moment. Ugly things can be very cool, I'm sure of it. Here are a few things from my shop that are a bit on the ugly side, including my favourite, The Mona Lisa Schnauzer.

Tushtush is based in Tel Aviv, and sells these very beautiful prints across the world. I've just treated myself to one of her tiny canvas prints (The Seaman playing guitar) with a view to building up a cool little cluster of TushTush paintings on my wall before too long!

Cocktail rings are a large part of what I do, and I like to think I do them rather well. I stick them on with everything, tatty old jumpers, floaty maxi dresses, tshirt and jeans. No need to dress up, just bung one on and go. Big fabulous rings make me feel better about everything.

My second Folksy Friday sees me celebrate the humble feather, and the humble bird to whom the feather belongs. There are some pretty spectacular hats and fascinators here. I want some of my godless heathen friends to get married, so I can buy and wear some of them. Enjoy.

I have great love for verdigris jewellery at the moment, particularly in animal form. They remind me of ancient gate posts or similar, and while I am also flirting with hand-painted faux patinas in lavender lilac, buttermilk yellow, acid green and cool aqua blues, these genuine verdigris charms in beautiful tones of green, turquoise and gold do float my boat. They're all available from my website and I hope you like them too.
