This month we love...

The 1st of April...one of the most light hearted days of the year. In South Africa we only play pranks on one another until midday - thereafter if one were to play a prank that person would be the April Fool!

This month we love the changing seasons.
Here in the Southern Hemisphere this means leaves yellowing on the trees, the days shortening and nights snuggled up in front of the fireplace. Although looking out of my window onto the dark green garden with its magnificent colours not yet fading and the sun beating down, listening to the lazy drone of the bees and watching the butterflies flit past, all that still seems rather far away.


For all those readers in the Northern Hemisphere, April brings a lengthening of daylight and melting snow, dripping icicles, blossoms, blooms peeking up through the thawing earth and hope springing eternal from winter's slumber.

This month we love Easter...and share our new teeny bunny buttons with the world.


We also love the Royal Wedding! Bells ringing, the streets lined with eager well wishers, love and romance in the air...and our new little heart buttons, Love's eternal symbol.


Happy April and here's hoping you don't get fooled.
