Folksy Friday

>> Thursday, 27 May 2010

I'm back and have certainly missed taking part in the last couple of Folksy Fridays.

I've decided, as a thank you to those fellow Folksters that have added Ellie's Treasures as a favourite shop, to pick a selection of gorgeous items from their shops. I'll continue to do this each week until I've run out of shops!

This week I'm chosen goodies from Pants and Paper, Stitcher Scribbler, Molly Moo, Handmade - from the heart, Helen Jane's Designs and Niche Handmade.

An oven pad for my Mum

>> Friday, 14 May 2010

A little while ago, when visiting my parents, my Mum mentioned that she'd like a new oven pad for the kitchen - her only other request being that it was mint in colour.

I went away mentally picking through my huge bag (and now under-bed drawers) of materials and could only come up with one lot of mint green in all that fabulous collection! When I got home and had a rummage I was proved right, I did only possess one pastel green piece of material and I'd used some for a Patchy Pockets. Luckily I had enough left to make the oven pad, with scraps of other pastel materials, buttons and little hearts and beads to make up a teapot on one side and a cupcake on the other.

I gave her the finished pad this week and she was thrilled with it. Here's some piccies for you:

I've had a two week break from making goodies for my shops as I was concentrating on making this for my Mum. The break has done me good actually, and I'm feeling ready to get sewing and making once again. It was lovely to find the "sales fairy" drop by my way a few times in April - gave me a really boost I must say. Watch out, new items will be listed on Folksy, Zibbet and in my Facebook Shop very, very soon!


Lovely birthday goodies ...

>> Saturday, 8 May 2010

I celebrated my birthday on Friday and I was a very, very lucky lady receiving some fabulous presents (and I have more to come over the weekend too). Some of them came from the wonderful sellers at Folksy - chosen from my ever growing "favourites" list. Take a peek:

Northfield Primitives
This gorgeous doggy handbag caught my eye recently when I was looking for dog items for my Folksy Friday picks. I promptly added it to my list of favourites and was chuffed to bits to have it as a present from my in-laws.

Hepsibah Designs
This photo really doesn't do this stunning picture justice. It's been put together beautifully with its different textures, felt hearts, silk background and darling little house. There's several to choose from and I found it very difficult to choose just one!

Never used to go for orange, not sure why (I think it reminded me of the family kitchen when I was growing up LOL!!). This chunky hat is the most gorgeous burnt orange colour and is sooooo warm. I can say this in all honesty as the weather has turned extremely cold (and very wet) and this hat has kept my head warm and dry far better than my old fleece one (and it's far more stylish too).

Firwel Crafts
Isn't this just lovely? The moongazing hare pendant - what more can I say. I saw it, again when adding items for a Folksy Friday, and fell in love with it; it has a magical feel to it and it's really "me".

Would like to thank all the lovely people who have offered me a Sunshine Blog Award, I'm really touched and have displayed the award on my Our Day blog page. Elaine x
