Fabulous Florals for Folksy Friday

The weather has been pretty rubbish lately - especially on a Sunday which is usually my day of pottering in the garden. So to save me from getting withdrawal symptoms, this Folksy Friday is on a floral theme. All items have been chosen from the August A-teamers (who are listing every day, just like the July Jesters and all before them).  As usual, click on the links to find out more about the individual items.

Okay, first of all: me! I've been listing these cutesy little hair slides in my The Needle Works shop. Different colours are available - and more are to come. Perfect for that sweet little girl in your life (but would actually look great on a 'big' girl too!)

This 'Rosalie Fabric Heart Cushion' by Polka Dots and Posies is vibrant but so romantic too. It would look very pretty on your bed, piled up with other shabby-chic style cushions and a cosy throw.

I love the colours of the floral beads in this 'Pretty Fairy Garden Bracelet' by Jinja Jewellery: so soft and fresh. There's so much detail in this bracelet too - can you spot the little fairy charms?

This bright and amazingly detailed 'Sunflower Print' from Passionate About Photography would certainly cheer you up on a cold, cloudy, drizzly day.

Lonely Hearts has these 'Perfectly Pretty Chrysanthemum Studs' available in pale blue or pink. Wow, I love the pink! Wish I had my ears pierced... 

Bring some of the evocative scents of the garden into your home with this cute 'Lavender Bag' by Adien Crafts.

Or how about personalising a bag or cardi with these sweet and simple 'Flower Fabric Buttons' from Cwtch?

And finally, store all your pins and brighten up your sewing table with this gorgeous 'Aster Lilac Flower Pin Pot' from Granny Ruth's Gift Emporium.

I found an amazing array of florals when I browsed Folksy looking for items for this blog; only a few of them are listed here. So if you're inspired by fabulous flowers, please take a slow wander through the handmade horticultural delights on Folksy - I'm sure you'll find something that you love!
