UK handmade site, Folksy, has revealed it's brand new look today – and it looks mighty fine indeed! I've picked today's item straight from their fantastic new homepage. This beautiful and unique chest of drawers started life as a pumpkin crate from W H Timms & Sons. Left out as rubbish on the street Relic Interiors immediately saw its potential. It's beautifully weathered and bursting with personality. The generously proportioned drawers are made using scrap timber and the knobs and pulls from flea markets. The result: the most interesting and handsome chest of drawers around!

Inspired by Carrie's necklace on Sex in The City, this necklace is clever, cute and flirty!
