Folksy Five: Comfort

This week's Folksy Five is late because I was off work ill, so I have picked 5 items that would have been lovely and comforting when I was poorly:

Folksy Five Mosaic: Comfort

I spent a lot of the past couple of days curled up on the sofa, so this London Underground Cushion by Mrs Gibson would be perfect to rest a weary head on.

I love this Under the Rainbow quilt by Knitz and Bitz - more happy childhood memories, and such a great use of fabric.

While alone in the house, some company would have been nice, and I think Vincent by Lilylola would fit the bill perfectly, and I think with his secret 'Heat' reading tendencies, he'd like all the Shameless I watched!

When you've had a cold it's important to wrap up warm when you venture back into the real world, and this Green chunky Ribbed scarf from urbanknit would be perfect for snuggling into when I first stepped outside this morning.

To go with the scarf, these fingerless gloves by Blackberry Crafts would be perfect for warming chilly hands when de-icing the car this morning.

What things are providing comfort and coziness for you at the moment?

Folksy Five: Fairytales

This week's Folksy Five is all fairytale themed:
Folksy Five Mosaic: Fairytales

Jack and the Beanstalk wallhanging, by 23BeechHill - this adorable wallhanging has so many gorgeous pattenred fabrics, and would look lovely hanging on the wall in my nieces' and nephew's new bedroom.

Fairytale Dancing Couple Resin Pendant, by A Resin Revival - I love the look of resin jewellery, and this whimsical dancing couple reminds me of reading Little Women books in my Uncle's cottage as a child. This would be perfect for dressing up a holiday party outfit.

Little Red Riding Hood Illustration by ArtQuirk - one of the first items I saw on Folksy, and an instant love. They depict my favourite fairytale, capturing the brooding danger of the wood so well.

Little Red Riding Hood Stud earrings by FluffsStuffs - I love FluffsStuffs stuff, and these earrings are no exception, even though I don't hve pierced ears, these are still so cute.

Frog Prince Wallhanging, by Tiddlywinks - such a sweet wallhanging, the frog prince is especially lovely with his little crown.

Folksy Five: Jewellery

I've been doing quite a bit of mental shopping - lusting over items in lots of Folksy shops, here's my 5 favourite jewellery pieces at the moment:

Folksy Five Mosaic: Jewellery

From left to right:
All In A Spin pendant by ZoeWoods - I love matroshkya dolls, and the sweet whimsical style of this pendant is so sweet.

Teakwood and Silver pendant by Anita Curtis - this is such a beautiful, simple pairing - I can see myself wearing this for work, and feeling very grown up.

Bluetit Felt Brooch by Lupin Handmade - great stitching on this sweet little bluetit - he'd look great perched on a winter jacket collar.

The Wizard of Oz Kawaii Chunky Charm bracelet by Fluffs Stuff - This brings back happy memories of going to see the 'Ozzard of Wiz' with my dad as a child, the fabric is just so charming!

Quaint Kitchen Blue Fabric Necklace by Pennydog - I have a soft spot for good resin jewellery, and the colours in this one are great, and she donates £1 to the Retired Greyhound Trust, a charity my family also support.

How about supporting artists & crafters, and buying handmade this Christmas?

I'm going to be taking part in the Sew Mama Sew! give away day on Wednesday, December 3rd, so check back here then for a chance to win some prints from my Folksy Shop
