London 2012 fever at Folksy!

Good morning - wow, did you watch the Olympics yesterday?  What an awesome medal haul!!!  So proud of all the athletes, what an amazing achievement.

So, this morning, I finally got my act together and posted some new items in my Folksy shop

First up, a Union flag themed scented felt heart. 

 Next, a London 2012 themed heart, detailed with Buckingham Palce, St Pauls Cathedral and Tower Bridge - not forgetting the soldier figures (do any of you remember the A.A. Milne poem, "Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace"?)

And yet another London heart, but with different details

This time the soldiers are accompanied by Big Ben and the London Eye.

I have been delighted with the success of my little shop so far - I sold everything I had posted!  So fingers crossed these hearts made with love will also find loving homes!  I enjoy making them so much....Im busy thinking at the moment for designs for my Winter themed hearts - all my relatives have got used to getting scented hearts as gifts.  Each year I design a different range of hearts.  But in the meantime Im coming up with some ideas for autumn- themed hearts, so watch this space!

Enjoy the Olympic action today, we have just switched on the TV to watch Andy Murray - come on team GB, you are doing us proud!!



  1. My husband loves Federer, but he is cheering for Murray today! Yay! He has caught some of my everlasting love of Great Britain.

  2. I love you hearts Helen, Can't wait to see your holiday designs!
