Folksy Friday - Sleepy Time

Today its a short and hopefully sweet post featuring a selection of items themed on creatures that hibernate. This time of year makes me want to hibernate too so I'm quite envious of these little critters. Just think, they'll all be snug as a bug in a rug right now and won't wake up until Spring. That's the kind of holiday I want.

1. Hedgehog
First up is this rather brilliant mini world, featuring our spikey friend:

2. Dormouse
This adorable print of a cuddly curled up dormouse perfectly depicts their hibernating state. I love the little feet!

3. Froggies!
Representing the frogs is this beautiful badge from Inspired Naturally:

And this sweet organic cotton baby t-shirt:

4. Bats
I choose this simple but lovely, hand stitched, longeared bat card

and i couldn't resist this cheerful little chap from the fabulously named 'Gosh Darn It'.

5. Butterflies (did you know some fully fledged butterfiles hibernate?)
Wowser look at thats gone into this! A beautiful bargain me thinks:

6. Ssssnakes
This Rainbow Serpent illustration by Studio Two caught my eye, i think it will catch your's too:

and 1 more for luck - these fun little Adam and Eve door hangers. Watch out Adam!:

Actually that post turned out to be not quite as short as I intended. Probably because I found it almost impossible to select only 1 item for each creature. Still, i hope it was sweet though.
Don't forget to check your bonfire piles before you light them this weekend for sleeping hedgehogs.
Byeeeee!!!
