folksy friday

Today is JOHNNY APPLESEED DAY..., born John Chapman, he was an American pioneer, missionary and gardener who introduces apple trees to large parts of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois...an American legend while still alive, largely because of his kind and generous ways, and his great leadership in conservation.  Apologies if you think you've just tuned into the history channel but I found it was rather interesting =D

So todays folksy friday is all about APPLES....

How cool is this! very life-like wet-felted apple


Delicious hand cut apple stickers
Illustration of an apple divination spell



An apple a day brooch



An antique brass Apple locket



Traditional cold process, luxurious,creamy and emolient handmade apple soap


Apple coin purse

Looking forward to seeing all your folksy fridays too
enjoy your weekend, Marice xx

Love all these apples. I was going to choose Woolly Duck's green apple for my picks too, but had to go for a fabulous strawberry cupcake instead! Elaine
