MAY DAY a.k.a. MAY 1ST

Spring is here and as always Chicago is wet! Since my job depends on dry weather conditions, I have had some wonderful days off! These days have consisted of some spring cleaning, running, and reading some old books. While reading I stumbled on an older spring tradition from the book, The Best of Martha Stewart: Good Things, from 1997. I found it really interesting and thought I could show you a current example which could be easily recreated and/or substituted using paper or recycled basket.

So the old May Day tradition is to SURPRISE a loved one with a floral basket hung from his or her doorknob. The only thing you would have to do with this birch bark cone is punch holes on the sides and add ribbon!
