Lily Loves: Ursa the Bear . . .

Do you ever leaf through home magazines or websites and see someone with an enviable, effortlessly cool display of items on a shelf or mantelpiece? Do you wish you could create your own artful display of eye-catching items but don't know where to start? Vintage tins and personal trinkets are a great starting point, but if you're looking to invest in an item or two for your collection, allow me to introduce Ursa the Bear - a pose-able, wooden ornament. She's both intricate in detail - the hunch, the face, the limb-shapes - yet gorgeously stripped back and simple - smooth finished, unpainted wood. Very Scandinavian and very, very cool. Stick this little grizzly on your shelf and you're well on your way to having your very own 'desirable display'. A piece like this is only going to improve with age, so although the price tag may be steep (£125), perhaps think of it as investing in a future antique. This is going straight on my birthday list - too bad my birthday isn't until September! Waaah!



  1. These are so cute! I'm always trying to make my dressing table look interesting but within a week of tidying it it's covered in sweet wrappers and bits of make up and what not :p xx

  2. Haha, I'm the same - It's an ongoing battle to keep my dressing table clear and neat! :) x

  3. oh I love this little guy! plus... good find on the website, i really like sites like that, that have lots of quirky bits for the home! I particularly like Eames Elephant (http://www.aram.co.uk/gift-ideas/eames-elephant.html) !
