I'm a little bit obsessed with birds (might have to do a gallery of pictures of the vast number I seem to have accumulated in my house... perhaps another day). So it's no surprise that I'm rather taken with these endearing stone birds from Cocoboat. They cost £132 for the whole family but only £32 for the little quail on his own (10cm high). Not bargain basement prices but not expensive, especially considering that they're stone, so should last forever, and that each bird is handmade to order in Devon made "by Tony and Doreen". Aww. I like that.
