a tiny basket bouquet...

a May basket does not have to be a
major project. it's always fun to make do with what
you have around the house. 

:: paper doilies
:: ribbon
:: stickers
:: dried bay leaf
(and...the afterthought...lavender.)

here we go...
just 3 minutes per basket...









i DOUBLED the doilies for extra strength.
after the photos i  made some little bundles
of lavender to tuck inside the doilies...


they became pomanders...in an instant!


happy May day, dearest of dears!

    The doilies remind me of the May Baskets Amber and Ben made when they were young and we were home schooling.
