Thank Folksy it's Friday

Today has been a good day. When I woke up this morning, I was reminded that it's a bank holiday this weekend... a fact that somehow escaped me. And if that wasn't enough of a reason to be cheerful, I checked my folksy account and found the thing I'd least expected... a message. Not just any message ... a sale message - hip hip hooray!

I decided not to go for a theme for my Folksy Friday selection this week, but just to choose things that I really liked. Somehow I came up with a theme by accident. Evidently I have a bit of a thing for birds!

I really love this print from Bird and Bridge.. I can't really decide which colour I like it in the most, although I think the yellow might perhaps go quite nicely with the cushions in my sitting room

I've coveted something from beautiful skin for a very long time. This cuff is also a money holder, so functional as well as beautiful!
I came across Sleepingcities amazing designs when I put a post on the forum a few weeks ago asking if anyone would like to be featured on my blog. I absolutely love the detail in these amazing prints (and after picking out my selection, I noticed the birds!)

If you like this, there is plenty more amazing walnut jewellery to be found at Lost at Sea

I'm loving the 50's Heals/Marianne Westman/Jessie Tait feel to this postcard from Orange Bird Studio.

When I noticed my bird theme emerging, I realised I simply couldn't pass this opportunity to include one of these adorable little lavendar bags from the Linen Cat. Not only do I love them, but Beth's incredibly thoughtful comments to one of my posts recently encouraged me to keep going when I felt like giving up.

Have a great long weekend everyone - happy Folksy Friday!


  1. Lovely topic this week. And what a fantastic selection! My tiny birds and I thank you for featuring us. Congrats on the sale too.

  2. I love the lavender bag. So pretty!!

  3. Thanks for featuring my postcard! I can honestly say I have never heard of those 2 designers you mentioned and I now have 2 new obsessions! Have a lovely bank holiday :)

  4. Really cute bird related items! They are all great choices, I can't pick a fave! Some shopes I had not been aware of too, so thank you.

  5. Many thanks for including one of my lavender birds and amongst some great designers as well; some I knew but others are new to me.

    Glad you haven't given up and have been rewarded with a sale! That's the best news :)
