This little daffodil girl has some flowers that seem ready to share for May Day. The picture came from a wonderful blog that you can visit here. Carolyn, from Antique Images, shares her many beautiful vintage treasures and has some delightful images that are perfect for Mother's Day.
When I was a little girl, I made May baskets and delivered them to neighbors. My mother was the one who taught me about this charming tradition. Later, when I started teaching in Seattle, my first graders made beautiful May baskets using fresh flowers and empty strawberry baskets. We went on a field trip to a local nursing home so the children could give the baskets to elderly residents. It was one of my fondest memories from my student teaching experience. Read about the tradition here.
I made this 4x4 image for a garden swap at Alphastamps. Once I discovered the magic of glitter glue, I realized I just couldn't go back. The dancers seem to be celebrating May Day.
I hope everyone has a beautiful flower-filled May Day today! If you don't receive a surprise May basket on your doorstep, there's no shame in making one of your own.
