Folksy (nearly) Friday

Folksy Friday has come a little early this week; I'm off with the boys to brave the elements and give our new(ish) tent a test run. So in dedication to this little sojourn, this weeks theme is going to be 'by the sea'. I've decided from hereonin to make an extra special effort to promote the shops of my lovely fellow folksy people who have taken the trouble to favourite my shop or like my facebook page or blog

First up I love this cute little purse from pants and paper

a very stylish beach accessory! I think this adorable little make-up bag from bee's button and bows would be perfect for taking away too

To get me in the beach mood, I love these cards from ilike

If I'm brave enough to venture into the sea, I hope I don't run into any of these

although the shark on this card from Molly Moo designs looks like quite a friendly sort.
I'm not in the market to look for wedding parapehelia (i'm sure the Frenchman might have something to say about it!) but if I were, then these invitations from Artcadia are just beautiful

and finally, this lovely picture from Fiona Carver appealed to my penchant for prints

Have a good weekend everyone.


  1. Thanks so much for featuring my cards! It's a lovely selection you've put together - I can almost smell the sea air ;)

  2. Such lovely choices - makes me a bit home sick for the Dorset coast!

    Have a great time,

  3. Great selection. I hope you don't see too many of the sharks on your trip!

  4. Great selection - I can't choose a favourite as they're all lovely! Enjoy your trip and hope the weather's kind.


  5. What a lovely selection of goodies and thank you for including my lino print. I'm jealous of your camping trip - say hello to the sea for me!
