NO.1 Jaine Rose ~ Beeswax and Broomsticks.
Art work to make you smile, that’s what I like !
Jaine has lovingly brought together a machine embroidered , acrylic and ink profusion of colour.
This dear little collage measures 15 x 16 cm , it’s painted on old book pages and then vintage scraps of bright fabrics have been applied and overstitched , Jaine has written ….. Grow !…..little garden grow…
In the shop there is more original artwork and cards too , I love the goodies for sale here , go and have a browse !
NO. 2 Mimidapi.
A wonderful brand new shop to Folksy ……I’m so glad I found it !
‘ My King and I ‘
Have a look at Charles and Ruby… a pair of love sick Kingfishers , made entirely from paper scraps , they’re absolutely adorable x
Measuring a dinky 9cm high by 3.3cm wide , they’ll come to you in a heart-shaped box. I love x love x love them !
NO.3 Barry Bulsara ~ Hand pulled Screen Prints.
Ha Ha Ha……………Make it Sew………… Star Trek fans will love these guys sitting at their sewing machines , great fun !
This print is 43 x 34 cm , printed on acid free 315 gsm cardstock , also in the shop there are sooooooooo many more fun prints to choose from, such as ~ Lord of the Rings ~ Dr Seuss ~ Captain Kirk ~ and Dr Who and Star Wars combined.

NO.5 Keith Martin ~ CK Automata ~ Cornwall.
Here we have an aluminium sculpture of Pegasus measuring 28cm tall.
Keith has hand cut then stamped the metal to form the body of the horse , it’s mounted on a wooden base with a metal handle which when turned allows the wings on Pegasus to move realistically.
NO.6 Lisa Sutlow.
Lisa makes the most fabulous Fimo charms , in this necklace she’s made tiny Union Jacks and encased them inside resin with red and white buttons.
The resin heart measures 4.5cm at the widest point and it comes on a 16″ SP chain. Have a look at Lisa’s ‘ Calorie Free Treats’ including a fantastic bag charm with Cadbury’s Creme Eggs………YUM !
NO.7 ~ Faith Bowman Abyjem ~ Cumbria.
This super shop is bursting with 154 goodies for you !
I chose this beautiful pin/brooch today as I loved the glorious handcrafted bead combined with the hand forged copper.
The bead was made by Iona Ruttle and measures approx 25mm across , the whole pin is 55 x 35 mm and has been hammered and shaped in pure copper by Faith , she’s finished it with some Swarovski crystals which match beautifully and give a bit of extra sparkle 🙂
NO.8 Lucy Teacup ~ Bradford.
Tea bags ‘ made from off white cotton have been appliqued with a cup and saucer then stitched up and filled with super strong lavender , you’ll receive 3 in this listing , you can contact Lucy to request a particular fabric from the ones shown if you’d prefer not to have a random selection.
Also in the shop are ‘ biscuity things ‘ , embroidery hoops with jammy dodgers , bourbons and custard creams.
No. 9 Rosie Ann Vintage Inspired Aprons.
Anyone who knows me will testify to the fact that I’m no Domestic goddess but boy would I feel like one wearing this little black number !
A fifties inspired cotton apron , bursting at its tiny seams with ruffles , ruffles and more ruffles.
Burgundy flowers on black with a cute black and white polka dot sash , pocket , hem and neckline , the length is 29″.
At Rosie Ann’s you’ll find LOADS more aprons and some half aprons if your goddess is feeling a bit less ambitious in the kitchen 🙂
