A Folksy Treasury

As I haven't yet got back to doing Folksy Friday posts as time keeps getting in the way or more appropriately lack of time, I decided instead to create a Folksy treasury. Essentially its the same as a Folksy Friday blog post but with much less text and more lovely pictures, which is the important bit anyway.
Here are my picks. Can you guess what the treasury theme is?

I'm sure you've guessed it although perhaps the swan put a spanner in the works, but doesn't it remind you of a beautiful ice sculpture?
Yup 'Ice' is the treasury theme in homage to the slipping and sliding into work yesterday morning on treacherous sheet black ice. I only just managed to stay upright.
Hope you enjoyed the ice inspired selection. Time to warm myself up with a hot cuppa me thinks. Have a good weekend!


  1. Love the wind chimes

  2. Hi Lucy,
    Thank you for featuring my picture of the snow queen in your folksy selection, I'm also loving the wind chimes and the artic roll.
    Thanks again
    Sarah xx

  3. Thanks guys for your comments. Yeah that arctic roll looks good enough to eat!

  4. WOWsers that swan is amazing! Love the suncatcher too :-)

  5. A perfect theme very suited to the current weather conditions! I love the arctic roll, not sure it would warm me up though!

  6. Great selection. The arctic roll brings back a few childhood memories - we used to have it for pud every Thursday whilst watching 'Happy Days'! Shaz x

  7. A beautiful icy collection - love the snow queen and the paperweights! Thank you for including my pendant. The snow is thawing here (Surrey), but it was really stunning this morning where it had settled on the branches of the trees.
    Kristin :)

  8. Wow they all look amazing. Love that swan and the wind chimes and... actually all of them.


  9. Ooo so many lovely comments, thanks. Its proved a popular theme. I've just got home and it certainly is icy out there on the streets of Newcastle, no snow yet though. Surrey sounds picturesque.
