Folksy Friday

What do you think? Bit tidier around here? I finally managed to sit down and sort out my blog layout.  I created a  very basic header for now, I don't even have Photoshop you see, so I may need to get a header sorted by a professional soon, but for now I am quite happy to live with cake :)

So now I am all spruced up I thought I would try my first Folksy Friday. I love browsing through all the clever things that people make and sell, wishing that I was rich enough to buy all of it and I figured a Folksy Friday might act as a form of therapeutic window shopping.  So with the weather turning fresher, the distinct smell of autumn in the air, and with the first day of school just a few short weeks away, my mind is turning to crisp autumn days, chillier evenings, central heating, tea and melty biscuits, long hot baths and cosy knitted things. Aaaaaah…

I love Judith's shop  I bought some of her soap for hubby and it was great for his sensitive skin (bless him) and her lavender and goat's milk soap is a huge hit with the 4-year-old in this house.

Loved the colours of this tea flavoured notelet.

Seriously kitsch!  Makes me wish I owned a teapot.

This shop has the most beautiful collection of tags, I can see these autumnal ones adorning my winter birthday gifts.

Perfect for keeping my teabags safe and sound.

If only I had some spare cash!  I can see myself sweeping about the countryside and sipping wine by a fireside wrapped in this gorgeous shrug.

So there you have it - my first Folksy Friday.  That was very enjoyable.  Think I might snuggle down with a cuppa now and dream of autumn :)


  1. Some lovely choices - that soap looks good enough to eat!


  2. An Englishwoman without a teapot -- what is this world coming to??? That's like an American without a...I don't know -- handgun? OK, that's probably not an apt comparison...heh.


    I love the tea caddy, the shape is so beautiful. And the teapot with its own fancy sweater is very sweet.

  3. Love the tea cosy! Although I love Autumn,I'm hoping for an 'Indian' Summer as we're off on our hols in September.
    Have a lovely weekend!

    Bellaboo ;o)

  4. I love the sprucing and it is definitely getting chillier, but I have to say - I thought your first picture was some red leicester - until I read the write up....sorry!! I guess I'm just craving cheese (diet!!)

    Hope you made it this far today - we went for a walk into Ramsgate, got blown around and found the Bass festival - jazz and all!
