UPDATE

Gift of The Month: We are waiting on a response from the March gift recipient of the book, "Paint It Black" by Janet Fitch. We will announce the name in the May Announcements article.

In honor of the recent article, Bathroom Renovation: Welcome To The Jungle, the April gift is a fun, useful set of notepaper by Tri-Coastal Design with a sassy leopard print motif. I got one as a gift and liked it so much that I bought one for a lucky HWA email subscriber, see the picture under GIFT OF THE MONTH in the right-hand sidebar.

REMINDERS

Moving Winter Sweaters Into Storage: As we move into the spring, it is time to wash your winter sweaters and store them away. If you are unsure about washing your cashmere items at home, check out You Can Dare To Wash Cashmere... In The Washing Machine for a step by step how-to on keeping your lovely woolens wearable for next year.

Flower Of The Month: April's flower is the Sweet Pea (Lathyrus Odoratus). Blooming in a variety of colors, its general meaning is good-bye, but its secret meaning is "thank you for a lovely time." A pretty alternative for saying Thank You!

Here are sweet-peas, on tip-toe for a flight:

With wings of gentle flush o'er delicate white,

And taper fingers catching at all things,

To bind them all about with tiny rings.

~ John Keats, Poet (1795-1821), I Stood Tip-Toe Upon A Little Hill
