I'm a July Jester - part one

I'm now a July Jester!

Some of the lovely sellers on Folksy have taken up the challenge to list a new item every day for a month. This has been a huge success in previous months with sellers supporting each other through the Folksy forum, personal blogs, Facebook, etc; making new friends; finding new shops that you didn't know existed - and that all important, making more sales!

So, three days into the month, I'm a fully fledged July Jester - I've managed to list every day so far!

This tangerine handbag is bright and funky and perfect for those summer outings.

And either of these flower brooches - deep pink or pale green - would look great on a summer jacket, cardi, bag or hat.

My fellow July Jesters have listed some gorgeous items too. Here's a very varied selection of my favourites from the first three days (click on the highlighted name of the shop to find out more about each piece).

I love the colours of this 'Lovebirds' wall art by Made by Lolly; it's so full of detail too.

This bookmark by Fairly Girly has a sweet little heart attached which says 'Thank you'. A great present for a kind person in your life - and again, gorgeous colours!

For fans of the Twilight books and films (me, me, me!) there's this great pocket mirror from Gifts Shack - available in 21 different Twilight-inspired designs.

This bumble bee paperweight from Kettle of Fish would fool the real thing, and be a great reminder of summer all year round.

These earrings by Mildunkley Beads are really sweet; quite simple and delicate, and of course I love the flower design!

And finally, I think the sentiment on this apron by HWR Designs was written for me, and wearing a gorgeous apron like this would definitely improve my baking skills too!

Check out the shops on Folksy for some great presents - or treats for yourself. I'll blog again in a few more days with my latest favourite items. Have a lovely Sunday!
