Folksy Friday

I have never done a Folksy Friday blog before but have been featured in a few. Folksy Friday postings are a great way to feature other sellers on Folksy and are usually themed in some way.

My theme is everything French and all the items I am featuring were found searching this term.

I hope you enjoy my selection and that you will visit all the shops featured and have a browse :)

How could I resist this little fella :) I loved knitting as a child and invariably got an adorable knitted creature of some kind from my grandmother for Christmas, so they are very dear to my heart. I especially love his quirky expression and his jaunty beret! He was lovingly created by Rosie Plumpton -

This gorgeous miniature pendant is right up my street as I make them myself :) I love the choice of stamp featured on this vintage wooden scrabble tile. This crafter obviously knows what they are doing as it is not easy to get resin to do what you want when making these :) Check out Emma Louise's other stamp pendants here:

Loved this milk churn!! What a gorgeous colour and yes, so French!! This is a vintage item and would make a great umbrella stand or side table with a round piece of glass on the top. I am sure all you creative Folksiers could come up with other great uses for it too :) Available at:

I had a really hard time deciding what to feature from this shop which is brimming over with French inspired items. In fact I found it hard to resist buying up their entire stock!! Beautifully designed and crafted paper items from tags to journals - if you love decorative papers, stamping and ephemera in general you must take the time to browse Crafty Pagan's wares :)

This beautiful collage is 'to die for'. I love interior design and anything french and am an artist at heart so I cannot say enough in praise of this piece. Such talent! This collage is so understated in line and colour yet has a great movement and vibrancy about it. I love the furniture featured, I love the decorative wallpaper and the grey/blue tones. It is ridiculously reasonable, so snap it up quick. My only suggestion would be to frame this in a huge white frame with a white mount board and float the collage in the centre. Wish I had somewhere to hang it...

Last but not least another stunning picture. What a simple but effective idea for wall art. These butterflies are diecut out of vintage French ephemera and layered over one another for a 3D effect. Beautifully framed in a white box frame. There are lots of subjects and colours to choose from in this shop so hurry over...

That it is for this week. I have enjoyed browsing through Folksy and finding new favourite items and sellers. I shall certainly do so again.

Thanks for browsing :)
