Folksy finds home decor

This week's Folksy Finds are lovely handmade items to adorn your home!

This beautiful Reclaimed Elm Wall Clock by KnottyBurr Woodcraft Handmade has been finely sanded and finished with Danish oil to bring out the grain. So sophisticated!

I love the colours and textures of this Lonely Tree art print by Sascalia. It a print of a mixed media collage painting using collage papers, ink and acrylic paint.

Folksy's resident decoupage artist extraordinaire, Ooops a Daisy, has created this beautiful Black/cream toile de jouy wooden side table from a recycled wooden side table and I think the result is stunning!

This eye-catching set of six Wooden butterfly coasters by Lino King Cards are limited edition and made from environmentally friendly and sustainable resources. The design is from a lino print which has been reproduced onto the coaster.

This beautiul White ceramic oil burner from Lauren Ceramics has a lovely round shape with holes that allow the candle to shine through while producing enough heat to burn the oil at the top of the burner. Functional and gorgeous!

I fell in love when I saw this Concentricity Mirror by Dig the Earth. In the artist's own word's, "This 10 inch square pine mirror frame has been lovingly (and very painstakingly!) decorated with beautiful hand drawn concentric circles, using waterproof permanent ink. A very graphic, bold statement piece! I absolutely love this mirror and am secretly hoping it doesn’t sell, so I can keep it!" I don't blame him!

I smile whenever I see this adorable felt Traffic jam bunting by Nickynackynoo. It has two double decker buses, two black cabs, two blue cars and two button traffic lights on a red grosgrain ribbon. Perfect for a funky little boy's room!

This sweet Polka dot cushion by Linen and Roses would be perfect for a little girl's bedroom, with it's pink and red dots, little floral hearts and buttons.

Another item to make the kids (and adults!) happy is this is a friendly chicken doorstop made from pre-loved fabric and filled with UK grown pearl barley. His name is Wilson and he's made by Jenny's Textiles.

And for the nursery, these ABCD Giant Soft Blocks by Sleep Dream Play are both understated and beautiful. Made from a digitally printed collection of fabric of her own designs, these blocks promise to be well-used and treasured!
