Tuesday`s treasures. #Handmade #Folksy

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day here in Norfolk and in the sun it felt very springlike. I wondered what to do on this blog and decided I would have a wander through Folksy and just add things that caught my eye and I liked the look of. So whether you are just looking to see whats about or you are looking for something special for a gift, hopefully you will see something here that stirs your interest. Folksy has a very diverse range of shops with wonderful handmade as well as recycled or upcycled items. It can be fun to browse and look around and once you start the treasures can be found all over the place.

When sales haven`t happened for a while
then I lose a little bit of my smile.
I start to wonder, `are they good enough?`
Should I be making different stuff?
The ideas flow and I think they`re a great
but sitting in my shop is their fate.
They long to head off to pastures new,
I think this may be your cue.
Head off to my shop and make my day
it`ll mean alot `what do you say?`
Okay, I`m bored with feeling down
time to banish that lowering frown.
The pity party time is over
cos I know I am really in clover.
I`m lucky because I love what I do
making wonderful creations just for you.
We all feel like this from time to time
so occasionally it comes out in this rhyme.
In all of life there are many lows and highs
it changes in a minute and you stop the whys.
Little things can really lift a mood
a smile or a joke, so let`s not brood.
Little arms that give a great big hug
make me feel as warm as a cosy rug.
The ups and downs are part of life
the happy times as well as the strife.
I get back to creating, happy once more
adding lots of creations to my store!
