So Ugly It's Cute

Yes, that really is a wooden bird 

Look closely. It's even more ridiculous than you 
originally thought. So ugly it's cute?

Do you ever find yourself picking out items that are so ugly that they're (somehow) cute? I know I do. There's something intriguing, hideous, ridiculous... and adorable about really wacky/far-out items, especially accessories. 

This oversized lacquer-covered wooden bird necklace fits the bill. When I spotted this funky piece with its strand of various beads (some reminiscent of pink disco balls), I knew I had to have it. Since I was at the Raleigh flea market (cash only) with only a debit card in tow, I had to borrow $3 from my dad so I could take this home.
