Guess The Theme

Morning all!  I'm going to try something new today - instead of telling you what the theme is, I want you to have a look at all these lovely items and try to work out what the connection is.  Once you know what the theme is, leave your answer as a comment on the wall of the new Buy Handmade British Facebook Page.  Entries sent by email and comments on this blog, twitter or the Cute Kids Clocks facebook page will not count.  Everybody who gets it right will be put in a hat and one person, drawn at random, will win a small prize.  I'm not telling you what the prize is because it's relevent to the theme.  You have until 6am (BST) on Monday to get your entry in and you're only allowed one entry - if you have more than 1 guess I'm just going to take your first answer.  The winner will be announced in this blog and on facebook on Monday morning.  Good luck everybody!
