Helloooo super peeps …………. the sun , sun , oh the SUN is shining yee haa !!
Isn’t this weather glorious 🙂
Lets get started on Folksy Love shall we ?
NO.1 Rock Princess.
First up is a funky chain maille bracelet by Rock Princess , it’s made from pink and black anodised aluminium jump rings and measures 19cm long , I think this is really cool and most ages could wear it 🙂
No.2 Teresa Hollins ~ East Yorkshire.
‘Ruby and Precious’ , A superb gouache painting on textured card , I think I could look at this every day and never tire of it , it just makes me smile 🙂
The two lovely sheep , born last Spring are part of a flock of mixed breed sheep that Teresa has in Yorkshire, they’re now most definitely staying part of the family x
The little painting measures 7 1/2 ” x 4 1/2 “.
NO.3 Sam Walker ~ Wotnot Pig Ceramics.
A bits and bobs dish , perfect for all your ‘pretty things’ , I have a couple of little dishes like this for jewellery I wear most often , it’s handier than scrambling through a jewel box !
White earthenware clay has been given a blue wash of glaze , Sam has hand stamped the dish which is 10.5cm with flowers and words … very sweet x
Also at Wotnot Pig are more lovely dishes , mugs and some very cute heart hangers , I very nearly chose one of those to feature today , they’re well priced and would make a very nice gift.
No .4 Marna Lunt ~ North Yorkshire.
OOOOOHHHH …………too many bits of gorgeousness all rolled into one…where on earth do I start ? ?
This cushion couldn’t be more up might street if it tried…… I L*O*V*E IT
Measuring 40x40cm it comes complete with a feather pad , Marna has hand stitched the ruffles of a rosette onto linen and appliqued fabric circles in a lovely subtle combination of patterns , then added a glorious mix of wonderful ribbon…..Yummeee .
Marna has eight more cushions in her shop along the same lines , all fabulous !
No.5 Molly Ginnelly ~ Fife.
This little bird brooch caught my eye this week , made by Molly from Fife , it’s made up of wood and Formica with artwork which has been laser cut.
The brooch is 3.5cm in diameter , also for sale are other similarly styled brooches featuring deer , trees and more sweet little birds .
Have a look at Molly’s ‘Flower stem Necklace’ ( page 2 in her shop) , I would have chosen this if I hadn’t already found a necklace to showcase , it’s absolutely gorgeous !
No.6 Lotti Rains ~ Holsworthy.
‘Fish Bead’ in glorious shocking pink ! !
I could eat this right up 🙂 The way Lotti makes her beads look like fish is remarkable , she has one in her shop which is silver and green , truly stunning , at first I didn’t know it was a bead !
This pink one measures 31mm x 20mm and 12mm thick , it’s been kiln annealed for strength.
No.7 Penelope Teapot ~ Liverpool.
Now I’m not normally one for cross stitch but occasionally one will pop out at you , this Kawaii cup cake is just that one , pink , girly and cute.
This is a kit to make the cross stitch , which measures 4″ x 4″ , everything you need is in the kit and it comes in lovely packaging so ideal for gift giving 🙂
NO.8 Lorna Whyte ~ Rowan bags.
An Authentic Harris Tweed in wonderful purple and turquoise , one of my favourite colour combinations for as long as I can remember.
The tweed is called Kaona and Lorna has paired it with luscious velvet and lined the bag with quilting cotton , inside there’s a mobile pocket and it fastens magnetically.
The bag is 30cm across the base , 23cm high and 6cm deep , the handle is 65cm long making it suitable for over the shoulder or simply to carry.
Lorna has 5 other bags in this style for sale in her shop Rowan Bags.
NO.9 Maggie Jones Enamels.
This is Maggie’s version of a Welsh rain cloud , I love this , there’s something so beautifully simple about a rain cloud motif.
The necklace measures 50 x 25 mm and it’s created with copper , Sterling silver , kiln fired enamels and fresh-water pearls.
Maggie has used a variety of transparent blue enamels with a touch of grey to achieve the thundery look of a cloud that’s about to burst.
Have a peek at the shop for oodles more lovely enamelled jewellery.
So there you are lovely sunny people , my 9 Folksy favourites this week.
Enjoy the sun this week-end x
Take care till next time.
