Nearly the end of Summer....

So Autumn is just around the corner, it's goodbye to August and hello September, with it's mists and mellow fruitfulness. It is such a lovely month, the shift in the seasons bringing about a showcase of colours in the hedgerows at the end of our lane.

Talking of showcases it's time for...

 .. Fabulous Folksy Friday Finds!

The letter 'P' is our inspiration for this weeks finds, don't forget to drop by all the shops their url's are under their photo's.

  'P' is for...

Pretty Poppies that never need watering

P is for Poppies - These pretty poppies would brighten up even the dullest corner. Jessica's Folksy shop is filled with ceramic loveliness, we especially like all her ceramic flower posies. Jessica is enjoying the limelight this week as she is the featured seller on Folksy, not surprised, her shop is a little gem.

Wish you were here?!

P is for Postcard - This postcard is actually a little cushion. We love that Kim offers the option to personalise it for a special occasion What a great idea, it would make a fabulous and original wedding or anniversary present.

Pretty in Pink

P is for Pink - A soft pink bowl made from Field Maple wood. Simply beautiful. Sarah's Folksy shop is brimming over with gorgeous, organically shaped wooden delights:

Flower Power!

P is for Pendant - We've been following Tracy's blog for a while and are fascinated with her bold and beautiful jewellery. If you are looking for something new for your autumn capsule wardrobe you'd be wise to pop over to Tracy's Folksy shop:

Back here we have at last got around to launching ourselves into the world of Twitter. Not too sure what to do but other online sellers seem to have success with getting themselves noticed by tweeting. So we are preening our feathers and practicing our warbling to be able to fit in with fellow tweeters! 

Our floral garden has given me an idea for a new print, don't think it's too difficult to see what has inspired me.

First colour plate ready for the press

As the night's start getting cooler it will soon be time to search out those 'woolly jumpers'..

Our smiling Dartmoor Grey Faced Sheep Print

We are taking a couple of hours off today to 'scrump' apples in our friends orchard. They are away at present and we are on watering duties. The bartering that has been negotiated means we can take their windfall apples and pick blackberries while we are there. So it will be a fruity crumble for pud on Saturday evening, can't wait...

Enjoy your weekend.
