May Day Deliveries

We began our deliveries in the afternoon with a basket for my parents and then two of my favorite cousins. 

After supper we continued our deliveries.

No one was home

The four princesses and the little prince were not at home so their baskets ended up in grocery bags tied to the plant hanger.

One of the little neighborhood gals had a big smile for us.

Then we stopped by one of the neighborhood bachelors, and then over to Steve and Jo’s where Chance got a May Basket!

Chance and his May Basket

He wasn’t very polite about it, he just wanted to rip it apart to get to the jerky treats!

Lumber Mason

Our last stop was at Lumber Masons…his adorable sister was not home so he assured me that he would save one basket for her!  He is growing like a weed and is taller than me now.

Thus ends another sucessful May Day!  I hope some of my readers days were brightened by a basket, a kindness or just a smile.

  4. You make me want to do the May baskets. Folks around here would think I had gone crazy...or crazier. I can just see them peeping at me from behind the curtain as I knocked at their door. May baskets are so sweet and I love the smiles you get from those children. Chance always makes me smile.

  7. You made a lot of people happy! I was interested in your square basket. A friend taught me to make a square box years ago. Fold a square as you did for the bottom. Then make a square 3/8" larger and fold the same way. There you have a lid. So cute made from old cards - Christmas, birthday etc.

  13. I love that you do this. Those of us who are older do remember May baskets, and several teacher friends who teach young children posted the paper baskets with paper flowers they had their students make.
