Folksy Friday ..... festive holly

This week I've introduced a new design into my shop especially for the festive season. So, here is my new lttle holly brooch....

...featuring two appliqued holly leaves edged with beads and finished with a pretty button berry and ribbon detail. So far they have been well received, having sold one brooch and receiving a custom request for a keyring version :)
So, for Folksy Friday this week I have decided to feature some other festive holly items currently available on Folksy. There are so many beautiful items available but here are a selection of my favourites :) Please click on the photo to be taken directly to the shop...

Christmas is coming....

Oh dear.... how long since my last blog?! I can't believe it's been so long, I promise to do better in the future!!
Well I'm back anyway :) I've been busy sewing and preparing for Christmas which is slowly creeping up on us. I'm going to be having a mainly handmade Christmas this year and hope to be doing lots of gift shopping at Folksy. I will soon be putting together a few gift guides, ideas for beautiful decorations and fabulous Christmas cards all featuring items available at Folksy! I have a few decorations listed in my Folksy shop, so will leave you for now with a little look at some of them :)
