Folksy Friday - Flower Power

Weird weather week or what?! Well it certainly has been in my neck of the woods, Newcastle anyway. With glorious sunshine on Sunday and heavy snow on Tuesday, then sunny again on Wednesday - nuts!!

Anyway despite the oddness spring is officially here (believe it or not) and to mark that i’m having a floral themed Folksy Friday today. So even if its not sunny where you are at the moment after looking at these lovely flowery, colourful picks it will feel like the sun has got it’s little hat on.

Vibrant notelets from Hanmade & a beautiful poppy tea cosy by Elaine Briars.

Pretty bunting necklace by Catkin Boutique and ribbon flowers by Helen Smith.

Gorgeous postcard by Little Green Shed & striking illustration by Amy Blackwell.

Colourful cushion from Lucy Loo's and a cute egg cosy from Gill Pinkney

Hope you all have a happy, flowery long weekend!!
