Ladybird Ladybird flyaway home, your house is on fire and your children are gone Anyone remember that? My Nan used to sing that everytime we saw one. So, for this weeks Folksy Friday I am featuring the Ladybird, and there are a lot of them featured on Folksy, here is just a small selection. Simply click on the photograph to be taken to further details of the lovely item, and enable you to feast your eyes on the rest of that talented sellers shop.

First is Artisan Silver, a Folksy crafter much admired by me I have a large list of favourite items in her shop, mostly owls - but I discovered this simply adorable Ladybird

At Dapple Designs this great handbag charm (would look fab on a matching ladybird bag)

At Silent Theatre this lovely A4 print, you must look and read the description also offers on in this shop so added bonus

Now here is a talent for you, Martin at Classic Planters has created this lovely bookcase alongside his shop of planters

Milliebead has this adorable charm bracelet, displayed very well here with this great photo

Bags of Swank by SimJaTa, has a large Ladybird Tote Bag and also a smaller one to match ideal for a little wrist shopper, to take inside the larger one for extra's or for a little one to match Mum's.

  4. Thanks for theh photo of my ladybird bracelet. Your Tote bags are fantastic. I had a nice day at the craft fair today, saw some lovely people and got lots of information, contacts and bought lovely things, but did not sell a bean! It had not been advertised at all well and was in a bit of an out of the way place, but never mind, always next time, Millie

  5. So sorry the craft fair didnt go better Millie, was thinking of you. Glad you had a nice day though.
