Anyway, I'll try and showcase some of the other stores in "My Favourites" today - but may slip in the odd jewellery one!!!
The first store is a new one on Folksy, although the seller is well known through her own website and Etsy, where she usually sells her wonderful handmade glass beads!
http://www.folksy.com/shops/Rowanberrydesigns In this store she is selling some of her artwork and also, hopefully, some jewellery made with her own handmade beads!
http://www.folksy.com/shops/moodycowdesigns This is where you will find the lovely Trish and her handmade bags, purses and accessories!
http://www.folksy.com/shops/susiej This is a lovely store full of lots of lovely hand knitted items!
http://www.folksy.com/shops/DiomoGlass This shop makes me take a sharp intake of breath every time I go have a look as I love the items she makes with the glass!
http://www.folksy.com/shops/ImaginAsianClothing I bought some bags from here earlier in the year and they are real show stoppers!! Very well made!
http://www.folksy.com/shops/ElderberryArts and finally - well, I told you I can't resist pretty jewellery and the lovely Claire makes some really nice pieces. I bought a lovely pendant from her last week and asked her to make me a matching pair of earrings aswell! They arrived within 2 days and I was over the moon!
So there you go, a few of my favourite Folksy stores and I hope that you will add them to your favourites!

I was totally overwhelmed by the level of support from people. I had parcels arriving in the post from people sending me beads and findings for me to make into jewellery, it was lovely.
Since then, I have made two £100 donations to
Macmillan; one to my local fundraising group here
on the island and the other the our local Macmillan
nurse who has a pallative care fund for those cancer
patients who have chosen to die at home.
So today, I just wanted to showcase some of the
wonderful people who have helped me, and are
still helping me, by selling items for Macmillan.
These lovely earings are by Blue Forest Jewellery
A lovely lady called Sue, who is a whizz with the knitting needles,
originally made me a lovely hat to wear when my hair fell out due to the chemotherapy. She then made some of these cute little flowers that you can pin onto your coat, a hat, a scarf, anywhere!
With Christmas around the corner, its time to start buying cards and the lovely Amy, who is a very talented artist, has made these cute cards that she is offering to Macmillan.
Another lovely maker of cards is Dottie Cards!
This card can be used for any occasion as she will alter the wording to suit.
Another lovely lady called Tracy made this stunning crystal suncatcher and donated the proceeds to Macmillan. http://www.folksy.com/items/522989-MacMillan-Fundraising-Suncatcher-Aqua-Teal-Crystal-Window-Hanging-?shop=yes
There have been lots of other people from Folksy that have helped me with this fundraising effort and I want to give as many of them as posible a quick mention!

If I have forgotten anybody then I am very sorry! Give me a quick message on Folksy and I will gladly add your name to the roll call of wonderful Folksy folk!!!
Please support all these lovely people in the run up to Christmas!
Once again I thank you all.

So I thought this week for Folksy Friday, I'd see what lovely golden leaves I could find for sale!
Well, I hope you like my little selection of autumnal goodies!
Until next time, xx
