May Basket Smiles

Teddy was the first to get his May Basket…just a few days early cause that is when his parents brought him by.

I hope you all had a wonderful May Day!  It is one of my favorite days of the year.  I am anxious to hear if you made a May Basket or if you got one!

  5. I got my first ever May Basket yesterday. The local school second graders went around the neighborhood and placed a basket on everyones door. I startled my "giver" when I opened the door. I then had to wave at all the kids and their teachers and shout Happy May Day as they paraded by the house. It sure made my day.

  6. I didn't get any May baskets done this year, but because of you I've done it twice now, and although I've never received one, I did enjoy making them and putting them on doorknobs. Nobody ever said anything and probably don't know who did it. :-)

  7. The children are all precious. When my children were small I would receive little may baskets filled with violets. Wonderful memories!

  10. The kids are all so cute. I bet they loved the May baskets. I haven't made or gotten a May basket for years. Maybe I'll have to start the tradition again next year.

  13. Unfortunately, no. If someone hung a May basket on my doorknob, it probably would have melted...or wilted. But I would have preferred melted. Chocolate would be a nice addition right now ;)

    Happy belated May day to you! And thanks for sending these virtual May Baskets to everyone! You brighten up a whole lot of days with your pics.

    And YAY for no snow!!!!!!!!!

  17. I did not give or receive May baskets, so I really appreciate seeing what you did and who your recipients are! What fun to bring joy to kids!

  18. How sweet! I haven't ever heard of May baskets. I do Valentines, Easter, and Halloween baskets or bags for my grands...they would probably love to have May baskets too- I will have to read more about it. I do know about May day, but not much. Looks like your baskets were a huge hit!

  19. Have never done May baskets (except when they had us make them for art class in grade school--lol!), but I always enjoy it vicariously through you now. The kids look so happy!! And Chance got worn out playing, too. Win-win. :)
