As you may know, a few of us in the CraftyFolk team on Etsy took part in a Spring Swap. Most swaps have now been sent and received and I need to get them featured here while its still actually Spring!
The swap received by Hannah of Squintessential was this beautiful pewter cat created for her by Louise of Loutul:

Louise's Etsy shop is full of all manner of lovely items including Embroidered Wall Art, Pewter Wall Sculptures, Pewter Candle Sleeves,
Decorative Glass Bottles, Custom Embroidery and Pewter Embossing. Here's just a selection of them, click on the photo for more information:

Michelle's shop is described as 'Eclectic Vintage finds' and I can't think of a better description! Here's just a few of the vintage treasures you'll find there:
