Folksy Friday - September Stars featuring Butterflies

This week's Folksy Friday is showcasing the hardworking September Stars. This time, featuring BUTTERFLIES (and a dragonfly) - a final blast of summer heat and colour before the cold, wet and windy days of autumn take hold...

As always, click on the shop links to find out more about the individual items.

I love the little details and mix of gorgeous fabrics in this pretty, red Purse by Pants and Paper.

This Twilight Dragonfly Necklace by Whimsical Wren looks so classy in sophisticated black and silver.

Sweet and girly Pink Butterfly Fused Glass Pendant by Blue Daisy Glass.

For an unusual gift why not buy a Ceramic Butterfly Brooch by Tait Gallery? It can be personalised with the name and design of your choice.

This Beautiful Black Butterfly Jotter by Jessicas Jotters is stylish, and really useful too!

Another black and silver combo, this Butterfly Keyring by Sprinkles is simple, but stunning.

Beautiful colours and detail in this delicate Vintaj Woodland Necklace by Facets.

The bird/butterfly image on this Green Bird Pocket Diary by Lilly's Night Garden looks really striking against the gorgeous, handpainted background. I love it! I bought it!

I started my Christmas shopping on Folksy a little while ago. I tend to buy little 'bits and pieces' for my family and friends rather than one big gift, and I get a real kick out of buying them something handmade, something unusual, an item that they won't have seen in the highstreet shops. And of course the shops on Folksy never close for the day; you can browse and buy to your heart's content at 3am in the morning if you like! So if you haven't already, why not click on the links in this post and discover some fab designers/makers. Support handmade! Buy British! Christmas is coming...

Have a great weekend. x
