Folksy Friday 1st June


How goes it with you all ?

At our house , children are, at last ! getting to sleep before 10pm………… I’m thankful for the cooler temperature ……..I don’t know how many more nights I could stand of  scratching midge bites…..’cool’ water bottles……… that were too noisy and all the other excuses for getting out of bed and running round the bedroom  !!

Ok then , lets shimmy on over to Folksy and have a peek at some lovely things.

  NO.1   Caroline Mouran    ~   East Sussex.

This is an eye-catching , tropical looking little hanger , sure to cheer up a dull corner.

It’s made with a combination of kiln fired crushed glass, silver dichroic fish and measures   18   x  8 cm .

Caroline can make you a hanger that’s a little bit larger with 3 fish for a small extra charge.

NO.2   Sarah Morgan Bridal.

‘Grace’…………it’s not often I’m stopped in my tracks when it comes to bridal wear but this gorgeous creation just took my breath away   x

Grace is made of pure silk chiffon adorned with crystals and pearls, the bodice is hand ruched and Sarah will happily make it with or without a train.    Made to measure, the gown would be with you from between 6-8 weeks plus delivery.

NO.3    noodlebubble.

I’m gushing at the cuteness of this …… ‘Bunch of Flowers’ is 5cm in diameter , made from black felt and decorated with hand embroidery.

In the shop there are more lovely brooches with a mainly black theme.

NO.4     Pierre Cochon.

Want your website , YouTube channel or Facebook page to get more clicks ?

Have your own personal QR code printed on a T-shirt , all someone needs to do is scan the code with a smart phone…great huh  !

Loads of sizes , loads of colours… on good quality cotton,  have a look for yourself , the shop has loads of other cool shirts for sale.

NO. 5    Windswept and Interesting    ~    Cornwall.

Two   ‘Pieces of  Eight’   handmade and cast in lead free pewter , all the way from the sunny Cornish coast where many a shipwreck can be found down in the murky depths.

They’re 2cm across and are ideal for drilling so perfect for charm bracelets , ear-rings or whatever you fancy making with them  🙂

The shop is full of lovely pewter charms and jewellery , it was the stripes cat I noticed first of all , great fun !        go and have a peek , he’s lovely x

NO.6      Jackie Power    ~    London.

What a lovely bag………..candy stripes with a sugar pink centre !

This is beautifully made from cotton canvas, inside are 3 pockets ,one zipped.

The strap adjusts from  29 1/4 ”  to  54″ and the bag itself measures 13 1/4″ high and varies between 14 and 17″ in width.

Jackie has lots of very stylish bags in her shop…go and have a browse , you won’t be disappointed   🙂

  NO.7       Laura ~ Seaglass Sparkles    ~ Ayrshire.  

‘All who wander are not lost’……….. a  true statement  indeed.

This is a  very pretty necklace, Jackie has hand stamped the phrase on a silver tag along with some waves , she’s combined it with a freshwater pearl and a nugget of her lovely sea glass , it hangs on an 18″ Sterling silver chain.

There are 120 products for sale at Seaglass Sparkles , necklaces, bracelets , personalised discs……Jackie can combine all her techniques to make you a very special custom piece if you wish , go and have look at all her beach finds , you may be inspired to make some jewellery of your own !

   NO8.    Janine Basil    ~    London.

What a shop  !!!    120 amazing hairbands and  fascinators ,  this one is positively tame compared to Janine’s other wild creations , you   Really  have to go and look for yourself , they’re incredible  !

This hairband  ‘Glamstars’ is super sparkly blue on black and attached to an elastic so one size fits all   🙂

NO.9    Sall Clapham    ~    Ruby Blue cards.

Isn’t this sweet  … so simple……modern and uncomplicated.

15cm square approx , made with heavy textured card , Sall can personalise any of her cards for a small charge.

You’ll see a variety of card styles in the shop from cutesy or structured and more in the style of this beautiful Wedding card , just wonderfully elegant.

Well now,  I’m off to recover from this morning’s bike ride , haven’t been on a bike properly for about 25 years    ….. shame on me ….

sore bum tomorrow  !

Take care Folksy fans   ~  till next time.
