I love baking cakes - particularly as I now have a hand whisk after all those years of beating butter and sugar by hand (I also have great biceps)! I try out recipes from blogs, websites and from friends and it's my ambition to become the cupcake queen. Inspired by baking, I have browsed the handmade items on Folksy and come up with this selection of delights.Applique Cushion by The Quilted TeacupScrumptious Baby Cupcakes by Cheriese Jewellery Boutique Hand Knitted Cakes Tea Cosy by Hats and MoreCup Cake Illustration Print by Beggars BowlCup Cakes by Sarah WestwoodI Love Tea Parties Tea Pot by She DrawsParty Stars Cup Cake Wrappers by EdiPrintSFancy Little Cup Cakes Small Stud Earrings by Fluffs StuffsEmbroidered Linen Cup Cake Stand Cushion by Katie-sshedCeramic Cup Cake Candle Holders by Lauren CeramicsCup Cakes Tapestry Kit by Fun Kit

A few days ago, I was incredibly lucky to be able to hold a newborn meerkat pup in my hands. At only 11 days old, his eyes were still closed, and he was wriggly and fragile and simply adorable. I felt so privileged to witness the early strugglings and squeakings of a new life. And so today's Folksy picks are an homage to that wonderful wee creature and to all new beginnings - enjoy!'Just the Beginning' Framed Collage by 100percentdelicate'Misty Morning', A4 Fine Art Print by Genevieve Cseh Artbaby hat - 'precious flower' newborn by rocketclothingPink Florentine handbound notebook by Kate BowlesSeedling flower phone sleeve by supercutetillyPink fabric book - alphabet by Lilac ElephantLittle Nose by SelinabeenaSunny Yellow Felt Rose Bud Brooch by Granny Ruth's Gift EmporiumTaking Flight Print by Lavender GeorgeYou're freeeeeeeeeee by The Doll House

Welcome to - we have moved from Folksy Finds. We think that, by using a blog we have ownership of, we can show off the wonderful sellers on Folksy. We hope you will agree!The inspiration for this first post is this wonderful fascinator. It just blew me away and I started to explore other shell-inspired craftiness by folksy artisans.

These lovely earrings are made with hot pink shell ovals that I have suspended a pink fresh water pearl and a pale pink nugget crystal bead in the centre of.Seashells photocard by La Tienda Pequena. 1 x white folding greetings cards with envelope, presented in sealed cellophane pocket. She Sells Sea Shells by the Sea Shore Earrings by The Gilded Butterfly. These earrings feature two handmade, perfect replicas of tiny sea shells, nestled alongside a small freshwater pearl. The shells are crafted in fine silver from a mould of a real shell so every minute detail is captured. Cute Crab Tote Bag by Hanami Handbags. Cute tote bag, with little crabs, shells and starfish in circles.Sea Air - Fine Art Print by Dick and Franny. Fine Art giclee print created from my original watercolour painting 'Sea Air'. This blue and white watercolour still life is fresh and breezy and really brings the seaside air in! We hope you will enjoy our promotions and interact with our blog.
