May Baskets

Happy May Day! When I was a kid, I delighted in our annual May Day ritual. We’d make little paper baskets, fill them with sweets and handmade “treasures”, hang them from our neighbors’ doorknob; ring the bell, and run away undetected. It was so fun to both create and give – and the fact it was done in secret – well, that just made it all the more glorious. The baskets featured in today’s post are hardly the colorful, construction paper versions, but lovely nonetheless. (As always, click to shop!)
