Things That Bring Me Joy – April 2013

Apr 1, 2013


April 2013 | April is here and it not only brings showers…it brings lots to celebrate!

I’m very excited about our spanking new Kathy Davis Gallery and its Grand Opening on April 12th and 13th!

If you are in the Philadelphia area, I hope you will be on hand to help us christen our fun new shop in Horsham, PA. Gallery hours for the Grand Opening are Friday, 5–7 pm and Saturday, 10am–4 pm.

Another favorite April celebration is Earth Day, which falls this year on Monday, April 22. In our gallery we are honoring the earth by carrying some environmentally friendly products that are certain to bring you as much joy as they bring me! I hope that you find some inspiration in our theme this month that helps inspire your own Earth Day celebration.
