Hoopoe Easter and Hello Spring! Goodness me, March gave us a run for our money with water falling from the sky in all shapes and sizes in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Watching the snow flurries dance around, at speed, in the Shropshire sunshine last week reminded me of growing up in Zimbabwe where we called rain through the sunshine a monkey’s wedding. No idea what simultaneous sunshine and snow flurries might be called - a polar bear’s wedding perhaps?! I am very ready for Spring, warmth, sandals, daffodils, blue skies and fresh inspirations…(and a few Easter eggs!)

We are all Valentines because the definition of a Valentine is... a person who is loved by another. If you’re looking to declare your devotion to your beloved on this special day, then be courageous, be cheeky, be romantic, be funny, be mysterious and, above all, be fabulously sparkly! Look no further for that special silver something for your true love, suitor, lover, crush, honey bunny, better half, darling, babe, sugar lump, paramour, beau, pash, or sweetheart... Get your dazzle on and share the love! Happy Valentines Day! Sue xx
African Fence Collection Celebrating traditional craftsmanship and utilitarian beauty Travelling around Zimbabwean countryside in school holidays and to and from sports fixtures on Saturdays, I would marvel at the sturdy yet beautiful wooden fences. Constructed from carefully selected branches, they protect and secure the precious livestock held within, practical and crafted with care and skill. In the dry winter months, when the green vegetation disappears from the landscape, the African fence’s irregular patterns criss-cross the landscape, standing out against the arid ground and clear blue skies. Rhythm, texture and contrast, pure inspiration Explore my African Fence collection (https://www.suechadwick.co.uk/collections/african-fence) on my website...celebrating craftsmanship and utilitarian beauty! Love, Sue x
