Happy May day!



Or what's left of it. I have never been on the ball enough to bring may baskets to the neighbors. I have always wanted to but thought of it too late. This year I picked up some candy and made these cute baskets. These are so quick and easy! Seriously, I didn't start making these until the kids came home from school and I whipped up 10 of them in no time. In our eagerness to deliver them I forgot to take pictures of all of them. If you would like to see a tutorial for these baskets hop on over to Leslie Miller's blog. She's the creative genius who came up with this idea. I did make them a little bigger than her tutorial so we could fit enough goodies in there. Too fun!

These are darling, Kathleen! I love how you decorated them and made them a bit bigger. I've always liked the idea of May baskets. We used to make them when I was little. Hang them on doorknobs, ring the bell and run! The recipient would never know who left them. Too fun!

I do the same thing every year ... May 1 rolls around and I think of May baskets. It's always too late to put a plan into action. Your baskets are adorable, and I'm sure neighbors were pleasantly surprised!
