Folksy Friday

I wanted to get involved with Folksy Friday for the first time but struggled to come up with ideas of what to feature. I am quite into horoscopes etc so decided to make my topic the star sign of Leo (July 23 to August 23) and all things associated with it!

Here are some of the gorgeous items I found (

Wee Lion has joined the Wild Beasties range! He stands approximately 4cm high and is entirely from polymer clay, with black onyx beads for eyes. Because Wee Lions are individually handmade, each one is a little different.
This beautiful clock is hand-painted and features a friendly little lion. The clock is made from a high quality wood and contains a Quartz mechanism. The clock requires one AA batteries. Clock measures approximately 23 cm / 9 inches.

A 5x7 inch card with an appliqued felt lion design. The lion's mane is padded for a lovely 3D effect.
Leo Traditional Birthstone - Peridot
Sparkly green Peridot Chips, White Jade Chips and smooth marbled Chrysoprase ovals in shades of yellow and pale green are threaded on memory wire. The bracelet is tipped with two faceted Opalite beads; at one end is a handmade Sterling Silver 'button' and at the other a Chrysoprase bead and White Jade Chip 'dangle'.
Hand made sterling silver earrings with 3mm peridot beads and karen hill tribe square beads.
This is just a small taster of the gorgeous handmade items that you can find created by many talented crafters! Have a great Friday!! See you again I hope!!


  1. Lovely selection of items and I love the gemstone Peridot.

  2. Gosh, we're into Leo already - where is the year going to?! Thanks for featuring Wee Lion - what a lovely leonine selection all round!

  3. When I was little I always wanted a lion as a pet - but I got a rabbit instead! Very pretty earrings - love that shade of green. I often get stumped for an FF subject - last week I used this method which turned it into a bit of fun :)

  4. Thanks for featuring my lion card! Great theme today
