I love the colour mustard. It goes with anything. It’s bright and happy in the summer, and warm and comforting in the winter. So for this #folksyfriday I’ve gone for a collection of lovely mustard-coloured handmade items from Folksy!
More about each piece:
I love Cassia Beck’s collage prints. They are bright, colourful, quirky and retro. This collage is one of my favourites and it has unicorns on it!
I have the lino cut print of this gorgeous black and white cat by Adrienne Hughes from Here Comes the Sun on the wall in my lounge. It looks a lot like our lovely old foster cat Brunhilda!
Sally from LifeCovers makes a whole range of genuine Harris Tweed handmade covers, and when I saw this mustard tweed pencil case I fell in love with it! I’m a massive stationary addict and I love tweed, so this is perfect!
This tea cosy by Natalie from More Tea, Vicar? makes me want to drink more tea! Natalie knits everything by hand and I also really love her fingerless gloves in mustard!
Amy from Red Paper House uses bold colours, geometric shapes and hand-illustrated patterns to create unique jewellery pieces. I love this little mustard butterfly. It’s like a little work of art!
This set of three wooden flying ducks by Ava and Bea are covered with beautiful original vintage wallpaper with a mustard yellow print. It’s such a great idea for brightening up a dreary wall. Each one is laser cut from plywood and covered in amazing retro wallpaper. I love Ava and Bea’s copper cloud pendant necklaces too.
Suzie Lee makes the most gorgeous knitwear using traditional Fair Isle patterns in modern colours. This mustard yellow infinity scarf looks so cosy and warm, as does her range of cushions and blankets.
About Hofficraft. I grew up in South Wales, but I now live and work part-time in Oxford, hence my shop tagline: “Handmade by a Welsh lady in Oxfordshire.” I have a graphic design background with a strong interest in illustration and I have always loved quirky and unusual designs. I’m always drawing in my sketchbook and experimenting with new and different techniques. I love creating little characters from shrink plastic and fimo and it’s great to see people smile when they visit my stall at local markets in and around Oxford. I have lovely little corner work space at home in Abingdon where I live with my husband Joe and our lovely Cat Bella.
