Coolest designs of boring items!

In 5th place... the boring old USB key... reborn as a skull ring you can wear! Rather expensive but hey, how much cooler can you get!

At number 4... well USB thingys are very boring aren't they... so we'll have some pill-popping versions too!
Oozing in at number 3... the liquid bookmark... hand-made one-off's and actually pretty affordable too!

In at number 2... the penultimate coolest boring item ever... the Dead Fred pen holder - suitable for even the most homicidal of office workers!

But my personal favourite, in the number 1 spot tonight... the Voodoo knife rack - pure simple genius, what more can I say?!

Fruity Jewellery

There's no better antidote to the cake I've been wearing than a nice healthy dose of fruit to up the Vitamin C levels as we slide shivering into winter! The sparkling gem's of Anna Lou of London's cherries cheer me up no end, and hers is by far the grooviest shop in Soho these days! Luster Jewelry have come up with such incredibly cute strawberry earrings that they make my face hurt from smiling too much.

Other offerings are the beautiful Apple Pendant from, and a little bit of shameless self-promotion of Foundlings Jewellery's Fruit slice earrings - OK so maybe I am their creator, but it doesn't make me love them any less!

Invisible Furnishings

I have coveted the Philippe Starck Louis Ghost Chair for a very long time, and as soon as I get a house to put it in I will surely have to have one ( or maybe 2), but now I would also like to accessorise a whole room with invisible furniture! Should act as a welcome breathing space from the teacup and Barbie chandeliers which will be brightening up the rest of the place! Bring on the Essey Illusion Table , the Ghost Candelabra , and these very groovy Floating Shelves.

And obviously the whole room will be painted white, and out of bounds to children, food, pets, and all other messy or dangerous beings!!!

Crowning Glory?

I'm a hairdresser and a slightly alternative jewelllery designer, and I can never understand why the whole world doesn't think of hair as part of a mixed media project... These punky adornments are great, the first sums up my style perfectly! And Alice Tinker, what can I say, but a largely overlooked style icon with a mind all of her own (and in 'real life' my own clever mum actually made the Dibley wedding tiara!).

Kitschin' Chandeliers

This must be what happens when the junk drawer, a few unhinged minds and the world of interior design collide... I love all of these so much! Now I'm off to make my own ridiculous creation...

Jewellery Craziness

It's such a massive pleasure and excitement for me to find so many designers making ridiculous over-the-top jewellery, these are the heroes to which I aspire... It seems trashy kitsch doesn't even have to be cheap! I love all these items so much (if anyone fancies buying me a present sometime?) but I think my absolute favourite is the white gold Diorette ring by Victoire de Castellane, she must be at least as nutty as I am, and Dior let her loose in their collection!

Othe super faves are Tarina Tarantino's new Floriculture, Cartier's Panthere ring, these amazing Wendy Gell necklaces, and Betsy Johnson's Bohemian necklace. Oh to be able to create such stuff! One day Zelly, one day....

Incredible Inedibles

Well I have been trying to 'be good' with food for quite a long time - ie.not eating nice things.

Thankfully there are a select few very clever designers that seem to understand the need to be associated with tasty stuff, so if I can't eat it at least I can wear it, or put it in my hair, or bathe in it...

Mmm... cake, liquorice allsorts, doughnuts, and popcorn... I'm eating muesli at the moment...

Goldilocks Barrettes, Little Creations Jewellery and LoveLee Soaps are my 3 favourite fantastic creators of guilt free foodstuffs!

Art you're allowed to laugh at

Why should art always be serious? When art was a form of entertainment in the Salons of the Enlightenment I'm sure they must have had a bit of fun sometimes, but the critics will always look for hidden meanings, alterior motives, political agendas... isn't it nice sometimes to think "who cares what it means, I like looking at it?!"

Banksy has got it sussed, as has Trek Kelly who did this fantastic freaky Frida, and the incredible pavement artist, Julian Beever

Accidental Photography

What better than testing the camera and somehow coming out with the shot of the century, when you had no idea that you took it...

Nostalgic 80s toys

Lets do this chronologically. Here are my favourite things from back in the day when I was a wee nipper (to be fair I'm not much bigger now, but apparently I'm wiser). In the 80s toys really were good, and these are the things that rocked my little world...
Wuzzles, Keypers, Globugs, Sylvanian Families, the Getalong Gang, Poochie, Rainbow Brite, She-Ra, Thundercats, Dungeons and Dragons (the cartoon NOT the game!), old Sindy dolls with big heads and pink tutus, Care Bears, My Little Ponies, Snugglebums, Fraggles, Doozers, and strange little jewel-like dolls which folded up and turned into pendants or rings but I can't remember for the life of me what they were called.
