Folksy Fhursday is back, although I can’t guarantee that it will be here every Thursday as I am technically still on maternity leave and I’m far too busy changing nappies and enjoying baby smiles!

This week I have decided to have a look through Folksy for some Russian Doll inspired finds.
How about a bagful of Babushkas?! You can get this bag of 3 plushie Russian dolls from Beaky. If you are a fan of Russian Dolls then you will love Beaky’s shop as it is full of Russian Doll themed things.
This week I have decided to do a collection of guitar themed finds:
This weeks theme was picked by Joe. Zebra was the first random word to come into his head!
This weeks Folksy Fhursday is a collection of mice related finds. Inspired by the fact that today I had to rescue two chickens that had been nibbled by mice while quietly minding their own business sat on a shelf in a craft shop. All they’d wanted was to find some friendly humans to take them home. Don’t be fooled by the cuteness of the mice you are about to see!
This Little Mouse Button Badge comes from Pixie Doodle Gifts. After picking this to go in this weeks Folksy Fhursday, I suddenly realised that the shop name was familiar because Pixie Doodle sells stuff in the very same craft shop that my damaged chickens were in. I hope it wasn’t this mouse that is to blame!
Today’s theme is ‘bikes’ as this week is National Bike Week. Also, on Sunday, it is the London to Brighton bike ride, which means getting anywhere round here will be a test of creative thinking, trying to get from one side of the route to the other!
This Collage Glass Pendant or Ornament has been made from two glass microscope slides, vintage ephemera and a vintage photograph. It is one of a kind so get over to Come day go day quick if you want it!
These fantastic steam punk earrings are from Jezebel Charms. Driving anywhere on a Sunday usually involves getting stuck behind cyclists, I don’t think I’d mind though if they were on a Penny Farthing!
I can’t believe it’s Thursday again! Unfortunately, this Thursday is a little less sunny than last week so I thought I’d do a bunting theme to help us all feel a bit more summery!
I hope you enjoyed this weeks bunting finds. If you are still yearning for more then have a look at the bunting that I made for my wedding!
This week’s Folksy Fhursday is a collection of sunshine inspired finds due to the lovely weather!
First up is this gorgeous ‘Sunshine days, Lady Mya Merino tops spinning fibre’ from My Heart Exposed. This 100% merino wool has been naturally dyed using daffodils and dandelion flowers to make it a lovely, sunshiny yellow.
Hopefully the sunshine will hang around for the weekend, as tomorrow evening Joe and I will be having a stall at a garden opening and on Sunday, we will hopefully be celebrating our first wedding anniversary with a picnic!
As we have been down to Brighton twice this week, (well, Hove really but Hove isn’t the inspiration for anything good!) I have decided to look for some Brighton inspired finds.
This week is national doughnut week so here are some doughnutty Folksy finds!
This fantastic White Iced Ring Doughnut has been wet-felted by Woolly Duck. There are a few different types of doughnut in the shop and it took me a while to try to narrow it down and just pick one… I couldn’t do it though so here is another:
This amazing jam-filled doughnut looks so real!
I have been featured in a Folksy finds post myself this week so head on over to the It’s the little things blog to see a collection of farm inspired picks.
