Furry pom-poms: why the obsession? Every second bag I see has one hanging off it like some kind of pastel coloured dead hamster. I mean, I appreciate Shrimps and their modern reinvention of fur, but they seem to have started a decorative pom-pom epidemic. Maybe my dislike stems from the fact they don’t actually do anything. Generally I like things to have function. I also absolutely love a good sea creature, so this lobster claw keyring from the ever brilliant & Other Stories is rocking my world. And yes, yes it IS articulated, making it doubly useful for pinching my other half’s nose with when I’m bored on the bus… ARRGGHHH, ATTACK!!!
