Theme of the Month: Celebrating Britishness!

Did you have a lovely Easter? Hopefully you managed to snaffle a chocolate egg or two and indulge in a slice of Simnel Cake! This month seems to have a lot going on for the Royal family and all things British, so it seemed a good time to celebrate the slightly eccentric spirit that us Brits proudly have in our souls!

Celebrating Eccentric Britishness - handmade gifts, made in Britain at PhotoFairytales

Here's a roundup of some key dates this month:

  • Hallaton in Leicestershire celebrated it's annual Hare Pie Scramble & Bottle Kicking on Easter Monday, and Great Finborough in Suffolk is marking the day with their annual Race of the Boggmen
  • Bideford Sheep Grand National (complete with knitted 'jockeys') takes place on April 14th 
  • The Queen's (actual) birthday on April 21st
  • The Royal Baby is due this month!
  • National Tea Day is also on April 21st (maybe time to invite the vicar round...)
  • St George's Day arrives on April 23rd, and the day also marks William Shakespeare's birthday (and death, rumour has it he died on his birthday)
And of course, the Royal Wedding is happening next month too, and little Princess Charlotte will be celebrating her 3rd birthday on May 2nd!

So I thought I'd round up a few items from the PhotoFairytales website that would fit in rather well with all this British frivolity and celebration... (if you've been invited to the Royal Wedding I think No.4 in particular would make a great gift for the happy couple!)
