Folksy finds Springtime

March is almost upon us, and with March brings... Springtime! So this week's Folksy Finds features spring themed items.

This limited edition April Showers- London by Askey Illustration is a limited edition print of a digital illustration. Printed on beautiful linen effect paper, I love the simplicity with a splash ot bright colour.

This pretty Spring orbit necklace and ring set by Lucy Jackson Designs has silver plated wire interdispersed with multi-coloured glass beads.

This Soft Spring Green dish by Glassprimitif is a unique kiln-formed glass dish of green, lime, and yellow glass fused to create a patchwork of spring colours.

These divine Spring fingerless gloves by Blackberry Crafts have a lovely contrast between oatmeal and sage yarns. Perfect for the transition into warmer weather!

Made from one of my favourite Alexander Henry fabrics, this Library book bag in bird print by Dish Dash bags is a great multi-purpose bag. It's also lined in a beautiful pink and white blossom fabric with an inner pocket.

I adore this sophisticated Dotty cushion cover by Amanda Sainsbury. It's knitted in a bright yellow dotty pattern on the front with an ocean blue envelope back, you really must check out the listing to see how beautiful the back is too!

Nothing says spring like tulips and I love this close-up picture of one from Nifty Knits's handknitted pot of tulips . The three poseable tulips come in a brightly-coloured knitted vase.

This adorable Spring has sprung skipping girl pendant from A Resin Revival features a pigtailed blonde girl skipping with flowers in her hands. The picture has been encased in crystal clear resin and complimented with a daisy charms and a lucite yellow flower charm.

Taken in Aberfledy last spring, this Springtime set of prints by Simply B's has two lovely close- ups of spring flowers and one little lamb.

I love the simple beauty of this Natural linen tote bag with spring growth by Raspberry. The base fabric is pure natural Irish Linen, the fresh leaves in linen, and a lovely green dotted fabric from Amy Butler's Midwest Modern range.


  1. I was gently scrolling down, composing my comment as I looked at all the lovely items you've featured - and goodness me, that's my tulip! I must get on with knitting some more, a lovely lady in USA has bought the last pot. Thanks for the feature - it's been gorgeously springlike here today!

  2. It has been a lovely day hasn't it - loving the tulip and the handmade bags - lovely selection.

  3. Loveky finds! Such gentle, fresh colours, just like spring!

  4. Oooh, thanks for featuring my gloves! Lovely spring picks; I'm excited for the warmer weather.
