Guess The Theme 4

Good morning!  I hope you're all happy this lovely sunny morning.  It's Friday, which means the weekend is just around the corner and, more importantly, it's time for another game of "Guess The Theme".  Sadly there's no prize again this week as I'm busy trying to get the redesign of the Cute Kids Clocks website finished so I can concentrate on Buy Handmade British.  Hopefully I'll catch up with myself eventually.

I don't think the theme's too difficult this week.  If you want to share your answer you can comment here or the Buy Handmade British facebook page.  A lot of people have problems commenting on the blog, so if you have something to say about any of the posts and blogger won't let you, head over to facebook and comment there instead.
