Folksy Handmade - Folk

Folk Art Style Mirror and Baubles

I love folk style. Could be because I was a child of the 70's and it was everywhere back then. If your denim wasn't embroidered with a bit of folk, you were no one. But the stylised flowers, birds and hearts in geometric patterns have always appealed to me, as you can see, because my banners on this blog are a bit embroidered folk style too. So for this week's Folksy Friday it's a collection of folk style items. There's a bit of Nordic, and a bit of Russian, Eastern European and good old British with the Morris dancer.

  2. Aww I love these finds! Nice idea for a collection : )

  3. Thanks so much for including my Folk art bird - I was also a child of the 70's and I think that style has been ingrained into my subconscious as it does keep coming out in my work!
    I really love your matching baubles and mirror and I also NEED a pair of those red and white socks!
