Junky Chicken Love!

September 10, 2010

Today I have been featured in not one, but THREE Folksy Fridays… It’s a good day!

My map envelopes have been featured in this Packaging and Post themed Folksy Friday by Cuppa Tea and Cake.

My sheet music envelopes were included in this musical Folksy Friday by Wrapped Up With String.

The third blog, by Gemmipop Designs, has featured one of my lavender houses.

Thanks guys, it’s made my day! 😀

Where I’ve Been!

August 26, 2010

For anybody that is wondering why Junky Chicken has gone a little quiet lately, this is all due to the owner of this tiny foot! My husband and I are now proud parents of a baby boy and have been busy enjoying him.

Junky Chicken will be reopening again soon but if you are desperate to spend money then you can always have a look in our felt shop which has been reopened today. We are offering a 10% discount on all orders placed between now and midnight on Friday.

Folksy Fhursday – Russian Dolls

July 15, 2010

This week I have decided to have a look through Folksy for some Russian Doll inspired finds.

The first find for this week is this Lambswool Russian Doll Egg Cosy from Sara Carr. Sara knits all kinds of beautiful things so make sure you go and have a look round her shop.

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 Childs Tote Bag is covered in Russian Dolls. You can get it from Nics Knots.

Judging by her dress, this cat is obviously a fan of Russian Dolls too! Get her from The Linen Cat.

The last find for this week is this fantastic set of Ship’s Crew Russian Dolls from Hole in my pocket. They have been hand-painted so each set is unique.

Folksy Fhursday – Zebras

July 1, 2010

This weeks theme was picked by Joe. Zebra was the first random word to come into his head!

First up is this Zebra Sock Owl from the lovely Shaz at Oddsox.

This Cute Zebra Pin Badge is from It Belongs To Turtle.

This Sock Zebra is called Stripes and you can get her from Socklings.

You can get this set of 6 Vintage Style Zebra Gift Tags from Circusville.

Maggie the Sock Monster has been made from a toe sock, you can get her from iMake. I love that she has a third eye on her back!

Junky Chicken Reopens!

June 26, 2010

At long last, I have finally had a spare moment to get round to sorting out my Folksy shop! A little while ago I asked for your opinions on whether I should open a new shop so that my url could match my actual shop name, or whether to stick with my original shop. The clear winner in my poll was to open a new shop, and that is exactly what I have done!

I will gradually be filling it up over the next few days so keep an eye on it to see what lovely things might appear. There are only a few items so far as it is best to list new items frequently so I don’t want to list everything in one go!

Folksy Fhursday – Mice

June 24, 2010

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!

These Wee Mice from Quernus Crafts are annoyingly sweet, it’s very unhelpful when I’m trying to hate mice. They are sold individually and each one comes with a tiny piece of cheese.

According to the maker of Cara mousie, she was either named after Irene from Fame or the robust potato. Either way, she is another far too innocent looking mouse. Get her from Treaclezoo.

I love these postcards from Alice Wood. The mice have baked a tiny cake for Maud the elephant, they must be apologising for eating through something belonging to Maud.

This Mousie Mouse Moleskine Notebook has been gocco printed by Ink Me Up.

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!

Folksy Fhursday – Bunting

June 10, 2010

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 love this idea of a 3D bunting card from 1000degrees Art Studio. A message can be written on the post blocks or on a flag at the top.

I love this Bird on bunting coin purse. You can get this and other lovely things from Dinky Daisy.

For something a bit different to the usual fabric bunting, how about some vintage paper bunting? Get it from English Vintage.

This purse from Pants and Paper is really summery! It would be perfect for holding your holiday spends.

The last pick for today is this bunting from Nickynackynoo. Why have triangles when you could have stars?!

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!

Folksy Fhursday – Sunshine

June 3, 2010

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.

This sunshine yellow ninja has been made by the lovely Vicki of Lilley’s. I love the tiny throwing star that he’s holding!

Use this Baby bird window decoration to ‘catch’ some of the sunshine! You can get one from Through The Round Window.

How about this Sunny Yellow Bow Headband from Lupin. Surely this would make you feel sunny even on a rainy day!

The last find for today is this Button Heart Giclée Print in shades of sunshine orange and yellow. Get one from Dig The Earth.

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!

Sooziebee

May 14, 2010

Earlier this week I was reading Sooziebee’s blog and saw that she had found some slight seconds of some of her prints and was offering them to anybody that might want one. I have been a fan of Sue’s work since first noticing her on Folksy, so of course I left a comment straight away to say YES PLEASE!

This is the print that I was lucky enough to get a copy of and I was very excited to find that it had arrived in our post box today. Thank you so much to Sooziebee for the print, I can’t wait to get it framed and get it up on the wall.

For all the people that are now insanely jealous of me, head over to her shop and be tempted by all the lovely things there 🙂

Folksy Fhursday – Doughnuts

May 13, 2010

This week is national doughnut week so here are some doughnutty Folksy finds!

You can get these Doughnut earrings from Cherryloco. They are hand painted and come in a gift box.

You can knit yourself some of these doughnuts using this pattern from Lynne’s Pattern Parlour. They look like they’d be a great project for using up left over bits of yarn.

This Doughnut Pincushion has been made by Pipinopolis. If you are after a different flavour then they can be made in any colour that you request.

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.
