Inspired by | the blackbird

It’s the turn of our feathered friends in my monthly  ‘inspired by’ series and this time I’ve been inspired by the little blackbird who visits the lawn in front of our kitchen window. I watch him while washing the dishes, as he hops along the grass and flits from tree to tree. I love how the bright yellow of his beak contrasts against his black feathers,. But it got me thinking that blackbirds might be a bit overlooked when it comes to inspiration for designs and accessories compared to those with more colourful feathers, blue tits I’m looking at you, however I’m pleased to report this isn’t the case – just take a look at some of the gorgeous items below…
