May Day is Tomorrow!

maydaybasketI’m over at Writer…Interrupted today! Come on over and read my post, “The Crafting of a Life.” It’s a sneak peek into the obsessive-compulsive life of a writer and how important it is to actively engage in real life every now and then. ;O)

By the way, some exciting changes are happening at Writer…Interrupted! We’re in the process of going to a monthly magazine format with something for everyone. I’ll keep you posted as it progresses.

Head’s Up! Tomorrow is May Day–and as the tradition goes, imaydaybasket1t’s a great day to put a basket together and leave it on your neighbor’s doorstep…how sneaky can you be?

Our favorite ideas for baskets:

  • dishtowels
  • bedding plants
  • garden gloves
  • seed packets
  • homemade cookies
  • mini-loaves of bread w/a jar of jam

Have a great day!

  1. I’ve never heard of doing that. Sounds like a great idea. Our town has a May Day Parade. My hubby and I particpated as kids with our classes.

  2. We love May Day…and want to get some baskets out tomorrow but this week has been hectic enough. I’ll be lucky to get three baskets put together, and that’s only if I have time to bake this afternoon. We’re helping to pull off a big ladies retreat this weekend and tomorrow is full of plans to bake tea party treats and decorate the church!

    I don’t know if there are any May Day parades in our area. Happy May Day early!

  3. Dear Maryelle,
    And Happy May Day to you too! Its hard to make and deliver May baskets in the country but it is easier to MAKE them in the country! Have a happy day, honey,. Mom

    1. It was a happy day! We got six baskets delivered…in three counties! And it worked out well that we had to drive so many different directions anyway…

      We received two May Day baskets ourselves! Fun!

      Btw, I think you are on to something with that Mary-Elle…I kind of like that!

  4. I have never heard of May Day either. But I love the idea. I will keep it until next year and make a basket for my neighbor for sure! Thanks!

    1. Lol, well, I feel very remiss in not mentioning May Day here at the blog before! We’ve enjoyed the tradition for many years. It’s a fun excuse to connect with the neighbors and friends!

      Nice to have you all drop by!
