Okay, it’s not quite Friday when I’m posting this, but I’m sure you’ll forgive me! I really like this photo and seeing as it’s nearly Christmas I thought I’d share something fun for a Monday, I hope it makes you smile too. (I think I’m going to dress like this for my next fancy dress party, it has a nice edge to it).

 

Decorations for Christmas

Homeware

As you know I’m a sucker for homeware and when Christmas comes around it’s no different, it’s just double the decorations! Each year more and more decorations appear in the shops and online, and this year there’s been an abundance of Christmas themed homeware to buy too. For me it’s the quirky little pieces that catch my eye and I’d love to fill my home with them, so for starters here’s a few to get me going…

1. Handmade Papercut Mistletoe Christmas Wreath from Isobel Barber Illustration  2 & 3. Mooreland Ornaments from Anthropologie  4. Candle Sconce from H&M  5. Winter Robin Nibble Bowl from Sainsbury’s  6. Scandi Tree Decoration from Paperchase  7. Small Porcelain Plate from H&M  8. Paperclip Decorations from Paperchase  9. Smiling Face Bauble from Sew Heart Felt  10. Nutcracker Mini Christmas Crackers from Meri Meri  11. Mele Kalikimaka Christmas Cushion from Jade Fisher  12.

November

November flew by and with it came lots of photos with a theme of patterns and repetitions. This was of course unintentional, but it’s great when it happens and I only notice it when I put them together for these posts. I don’t normally have a favourite photo but this month I loved the bright geometric soap shot (top left). The colours are beautiful and bold and it was my most like photo on my Instagram feed in November! Great choice!

Folksy Finds: Feeling Festive

Posted On: Monday, December 7, 2015

Christmas

It’s time to spread a little festive cheer and for me, I love finding an unusual gift or decoration that you won’t find on the high street, especially when it comes to Christmas. Buying something that’s unique and handmade, whether it’s a card, decoration or gift, makes it feel a bit more special. I’ve selected a few of my favourite festive products from the wonderful designers over on Folksy which definitely fit the bill…

1. Letterpress Gold Christmas Tree Card from Print for Love of Wood  2. Felt Christmas Tree Doll Decoration from Pea Green and Blue  3. Robin Rocco Print from Deebeale  4. Wooden Laser Cut Garland Wreath from Funky Laser  5. Wooden Mountain Garland from Nellie Bruno  6. Cosy Up This Christmas Knitted Gift Wrap Set from Bread and Jam  7. Scottish Stag Dear Christmas Stocking from Nervous Stitch  8. ‘Christmas Spirits’ Card Pack of 24 from Hip Hip Hooray
