Folksy Friday Tidy Up

After taking the Christmas tree down yesterday it prompted a bit of a ‘tidy up & chuck out’ – alongside the ‘tidy up & eat it’ of course! I thought ‘tidy’ would be a good word to search to start off my Folksy Fridays for 2012 – here are a few of my finds to help you keep on the right track…

Desk Tidy – Record Time

‘A very useful notepad and pencils carefully positioned on a shaped 45 single record. Handy for shopping lists, reminders and “your dinner’s in the dog” type messages!’

Toy & Book Tidy – Cherry Picked by Mimi Handmade

‘This is an item intended for a small child’s room. The pockets are big enough to hold an average sized book. The bag is fully lined and large enough to hold the average sized magazine. This is also suitable for holding soft toys, jigsaws or other child paraphernalia.’

Letter & Business Card Holder – MijMoj Contemporary Furniture Design

‘Oak business card holder and letter rack. Store all those letters and business cards tidily on your desk. Made from solid oak with red perspex inlay detailing.’

Wrapping Paper Storage Bag – Maggie B Crafts

‘Handmade wrapping paper storage bag to keep your rolls of gift wrap or brown paper tidy and clean. Two handy storage pockets on the front for scissors and tape.’

Papier Mache Pyjama Pant Pot – Imperfections

‘A ‘Pant Pot’ created around one balloon and two polystyrene cups, papermached and painted.Β  Fleece and bow slippers, a belt tie have been added and then spray varnished for extra strength. Can be used for parties, or just for everyday items, such a mobile phone, wallet and keys.’

Clutter Bucket – The Patchwork Dress

‘Clutterbuckets’ are designed as loose bucket bags to have around the house. This version is a lovely soft reclaimed charcoal wool outer, and reclaimed flannel stripe inner – with added detail of braid to handles and side tab detail.’

    I am in desperate need of a tidy up and clear out, but can’t bear to part with anything, and after Christmas, I am sure some pants like that in my size might not go amiss.

    Hi Shaz, lovely finds. I like the clutter bucket. I would be needing more than one though, maybe half a dozen! Regards Julia
