Time for Tea?

This weekend has defiantly been a crafty old weekend! Today I started turning my ever growing collection of vintage tea sets into cake stands....

But maybe tea parties are not a common occurrence in your life, yet you adore vintage china and the nostalgic charms that are associated with it? Well who says cake stand are only for cakes?!
Why have a beautiful stand of vintage plate and get it out only for the occasional tea party when it could be out on your dressing table for ever more looking pretty and oh so very practical! Store jewellery, trinkets and even make up on these little wonders. The tea cups on top are perfect for holding makeup brushes and pencils or whatever your heart desires!

More vintage china plate stands will be coming soon and added to folksy very shortly, alternatively you could pick up one of these beauts at the St. Benedicts Summer Lanes Fayre!

Also today I took a little trip around some of my local charity shops, and although I didn't find what I was looking for, it was well worth the trip because I found vintage buttons so delicious I cant imagine how I will ever use them to their full potential!

Oh my... these little mint green flowers are definitely the most beautiful buttons in my life!

On top of all this excitement I also found a new (to me) magazine which is relatively new to all as the current issue is only the 2nd. 'Mollie Makes' is possibly the most beautiful magazine I have seen in my life! With a beautiful mixture or crafts, thrifting, vintage and interiors it is really so worth the £4.99 (subscribers save 25%!) I promise I'm not being paid to say these things, but I am definitely going to look into subscribing because I am absolutely gutted I've missed the first issue! Check out their website to find out which stores stock the magazine near you and have a sneak peak at the pages of Mollie Makes, I promise you won't regret it!
