It seems that so many traditions have fallen by the wayside. I used to love making these little paper May Baskets as a child. I’m doing my best to keep some of these happy memories alive. This one is for a 94 year old friend. Hope she doesn’t suspect it was me!
May you all enjoy a bit of spring today.
What kindness...happy May day Wendy !ReplyDelete
Happy May Day!ReplyDelete
a very nice tradition indeed...ReplyDelete
What a lovely tradition! It's wonderful that there are people such as yourself keeping these traditions alive. Happy May Day to you! I live in Australia and the 1st of May is the start of winter for us.ReplyDelete
Happy May Day to you, too...hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
Happy May Day, Wendy! Love your little basket :)ReplyDelete
Happy May Day to you too🌷ReplyDelete
I did not even think of it as being May 1st. How very kind of you to make the paper basket and place it for your friend. I don't remember making May baskets when I was young. Maybe we did in grade school and it just doesn't stand out. I always wanted to do the May Pole thing but never had an opportunity.ReplyDelete
Very sweet of you--it is so pretty. A neighboring community still has a May Day festival, complete with the Maypole and a May Day queen. DH loves to keep up with that tradition.ReplyDelete
I remember making a woven paper cone basket when I was in school. I have a friend who keeps the tradition alive, too. Thanks for the reminderReplyDelete
such a sweet tradition! My son used to take one down the block to my friend Mary many years ago.ReplyDelete
A Happy May Day to you also - your neighbor must have been delighted to discover this. Reading your post brought back long ago school memories.ReplyDelete
