" Spam spam spam!!"

Well, I haven't posted in a couple of weeks. I decided to change my format to a three collumn blog, not realising that nothing in life is simple. Suddenly my banner didn't sit in the correct place and then I couldn't get the background to load to the top of the page. To cap it all, I had to work out how to add moderation to my comments, so I can filter out those pesky spammers, who were driving me crazy, {gottcha!!!} So then I thought, oh dear my banner looks old and tired, so I made half a dozen new ones before I came up with this fresh breezy looking idea. Of course I then had to make another one the same for my folksy shop! My poor etsy shop looks like a half empy jumble sale, as there's no time to look after it properly, with sales from folksy soaring! I don't know what it is about etsy, but I can't seem to make a go of it, even though I love the site!
I have a feeling my Art shops will have the same outcome. Catch you all later ♥

Peony and pearls!

I absolutely love custom orders!! There is nothing quite like the joy of making a special item for a very special day, even more so when the order is for a bride!! I have been so lucky to have worked on several custom orders this year and would like to show off my latest.
This is an ivory organza peony corsage, with beading, freshwater pearls and silk thread stamens.
It ties around the waist with long satin ribbons, which hang down mixed with organza ribbons and secures with a brooch pin. Stunning!! This is now available to buy in my folksy shop. Many thanks for viewing...

Ditsy flower power

There's a lovely folk story running through the fashion pages at the moment. I love to see and wear ditsy florals and waft around in floaty maxi dresses on a summer's day. I have a few pretty ditsy's in my folksy shop at the moment and plan to add more. How about this pretty vintage lace edged shawl for a summer wedding!! Many thanks for viewing.

whole lotta wholesale!

I've sure been busy lately, well I have lost count of how many shops I've opened on-line. I have 3 very active folksy shops, one in etsy {promise to spend more time on!} and all the others around and about!!

This week, I have been working on a fab wholesale custom order, which includes these "Oh sooo pretty" leopard print hatties. See how they snuggle together for a chat!
I hope my client loves them!

Next time I'll show y'all the custom sash I'm working on for a blushing bride,
by for now, dear readers ♥

Butterfly flutterby!!

Summer is here with halcyon days and dreamy hot nights. I wish it would never end as I am a summer baby and can't bear the cold! There's nothing as pretty as a butterfly carried on the breeze as it makes its way accross my garden.
One butterfly I would like to let go of though is my purple fascinator, which is why I have her on SALE. She's reduced from £25.00 to £15.00 at the moment.
She's adorned with lovely gltter butterflies, nestling by a magenta diamante` and purple mini veil, so go snap her up, before the end of our Indian summer. Many thanks for viewing, enjoy the rest of your summer season ♥

find her in my folksy shop
