Folksy finds.........Autumn Leaves

It finally feels like Autumn is here, with those crisply cool, early mornings. I don't like the dark mornings and the increasingly darkening nights, but its such a great time of year for colours. I love the array of oranges, golds and yellows on the trees, and reminds me of how much I want to visit New England at this time of year.

I thought id get back on the bandwagon today with a little "Folksy finds' (I know - not done one for a long while!) inspired by the beautiful autumnal leafiness all around us at the moment.......hope you enjoy, and please check out their lovely Folksy Shops.

Stripey Nautical Corsages....

.......just thought i'd quickly show you 2 of my recent corsage makes. Last week I picked up a bundle of blue stripey and check fabric for £1, a bargain! I've used a tiny amount to make these which I love, and which I think im going to save to sell at the Christmas fair. Hopefully planning to make more this weekend if time allows......
