Folksy Friday - Butterflies

How quick are these weeks going?  It’s Folksy Friday time again and this weeks theme is butterflies.  I thought with the sun shining and everyone being stuck indoors, it might cheer you up to see a bit of colour!

Butterfly Box

First up this week is this beautiful butterfly box made by Tortuga London.  I can’t believe these butterflies are hand cut, what skill that is!  It is a good job I crochet because I can’t cut a straight line!  Lots of artistic items in this shop – Tortuga London

 

Ceramic Butterfly

Butterfly Necklace

Silver Butterfly Necklace

Jewellery always seems to make an appearance in each theme and I couldn’t resist including this cute necklace.  I love silver jewellery and as they also have matching earrings I might just have to buy some!  Have a look at the other lovely silver jewellery in this shop – Saffron & Ana Phoenix Jewellery

 

Watercolour Butterfly Card

I think it would be really lovely to receive a card that had been bought from a designer and artist rather than a mass produced one.  There are some absolutely beautiful cards in this shop and at very good prices. – The Inky Deer

I love these fabric brooches by Sew Hooliboo.  Unfortunately her shop is closed at the moment due to the lockdown but I wanted to include her shop as she has many gorgeous items that she makes herself and hopefully we won’t be in the lockdown for long! – Sew Hooliboo

 

Butterfly Ceramic Coffee Mug

I am sure that whilst we are all in lockdown, we are all drinking a lot more tea and coffee?  I know I am, it’s all I seem to do at the moment!   To drink from this colourful mug would cheer up me a lot, there is also a matching coaster.  Get yours from –  Ornately Lanterns

 

Knitting Stitch Markers

Knitting Stitch Markers by 3 Wild Oranges

Last one for this week is something I use a lot of, stitch markers.  I love stitch markers, I have got some in all kinds of designs but I do tend to lose a lot too, so maybe I will have to buy these.  There are lots and lots of stitch markers in this shop so I have saved it for when I need some more. – 3 Wild Oranges

 

I hope you have enjoyed seeing all the colourful things in this week’s Folksy Friday on Butterflies?  I am sure you will agree with me that there are some very talented people around.
