Belated Folksy Friday

These gorgeous red polka hearts have just been sold from my Beady Pool shop on Folksy. So, to celebrate here are some more red polka dot finds from the talented Folksy Folk.
A lovely puffball bracelet from Laura Lou, perfect to compliment the current nautical trend.
Or how about a polka dot hair clip from Once upon my dream?

I know a few girls who would just love this cupcake bunting from Nickynackynoo

And finally how cute are these? Utterly adorable baby booties from Betty P

Right I'm off back to the's wet and grey today so we are making sausage rolls, fairy cakes and saffron buns - nom nom
Edit - Saffron buns are more brown than golden as I was busy writing this! Let's hope they taste ok.

Folksy Friday - washing day

Apologies for my absence - loads going on the home front, but most importantly little man and I have been down to see mad granny and papa back home in Cornwall. We had a fab time...but now we are back it's laundry time. Despite doing some down at my mum's I am sure I am on my 5th load already. So, here are my Folksy Friday finds all laundry themed to make the chore so much easier. Now all I need is a sunny day so my whites can blow on the line - one can hope.

Gorgeous pegs to hang out your laundry from Ticketty Boo

And they need a fab pag bag to go in - this funky daisy is so much nicer than my old tatty one. You can find this and other designs in Wonky Giraffe's shop

For the days that it is too wet to hang the laundry out why not brighten up your home with a washing line mirror from Oink Design or a colourful peg print from Lapwing printworks .
With such gorgeous items there is no need for the wash day blues.
I'm off now to start load six and then urgh the ironing :(
