An online friend told me about these…I was SO enchanted about it I made seven…and today I scurried about delivering them to unsuspecting recipients.
I just wanted to share this idea with you all and express my gratitude to Bev…she reads my blog but has never commented ON the Blog…but she is one wonderful WOMAN that came into my life…
Tell ya what It was a GRAND day delivering seven baskets to people…better than Christmas…BECAUSE it was unexpected! Of course I put my own twist on it… But it was sooooooooo much fun…
Now take this idea make it happen…forget May the First is past…But spread the good feeling, it feels soooooooooooooooooo good… But oddly enuff…everyone KNEW it was I even though I was sneaky
~~ One of the most popularly known May Day traditions is to hang a basket full of spring flowers and/or other small gifts on a neighbor's doorknob. Gathering flowers and branches became a tradition and "bringing in the May" became a popular activity on May 1. The giving of baskets became part of the festivities later in the evolution of May Day. ~~~~~~~~~~~ Fill a small basket with freshly gathered Spring blossoms. Tuck a small vase or something that will hold water into the bottom of the basket and fill the basket with a selection of flowers. Tie a bow or ribbon streamers onto the handle and fasten it to the door handle of a friend. ~~ Handing out May Day baskets is a charming and gentle activity. It's a tradition that Louisa May Alcott wrote of in "Jack and Jill" (Chapter 18): While fresh flowers and candy treats are usually left in the baskets, you can put other things as well. I think fresh flowers; a few tea bags and some little tea cookies would be wonderful!
