~ Happy May Day ~

Happy May Day Everyone, Can you believe it's May already? My goodness this year is flying right along. Do you have any plans for today? Are you going to surprise your neighbors with May Day baskets? I miss the days when the grandchildren were small and we would be surprised with the doorbell ringing, no one there to find a beautiful basket they had put together. {sigh}
My original plan was to have the tea party on the front porch. With all the rain we've had it's a bit cool out there. So please come in and stay a while.
The tea set is on my favorites, purchased many years ago at Cracker Barrel.

Please help yourself to a cup of tea.
The Aladdin style sugar bowl always make me smile. The curved handles almost appear as though they were an after thought when it was made.

Whimsical and airy as if they're outside blowing in the wind.
Thinking outside the box instead of a basket I went with the vintage metal bucket for the flowers. The mix of vintage, porcelain and lace adds a variety of textures to a flat table.
Love the handle.

Please help yourself to a cookie,  Mr. P still has plenty inside. He said I got a good "do" on this batch. Sometimes he says the funniest things.

The statues came from Walmart last fall on sale, I recall giving $4.99 for each of them. The little guy reminds me of my grandson and his love for his dog Miss Isabelle.
You know I had to get the little girl because of the bunny.
Nothing like a good book while enjoying cookies with a cup of hot tea.

Thank you for stopping in to say hello. Your sweet comments always touch our hearts. It is because of you I do what I do. Until next time....
