Cure for the Mondays-May Day prep edition (4/23/2012)

On Mondays I post links and ideas I've seen in the past week that made me laugh and/or smile! I hope they make you smile too, especially if you've got a "case of the Mondays"

Next Tuesday is May 1st, "May Day" and many people still celebrate by putting baskets of treats and flowers on the doorsteps or doorknobs of their friends, relatives, and neighbors.  Here are some of my favorite ideas for May baskets:

And last but not least, colorful doilies make delicate and gorgeous May baskets in a variety of shapes...

What are your May Day traditions?

Those are so cute...I wonder how often people do this anymore...I seem to remember it being more popular when I was a little girl. Very sweet though. Nice tradition to continue.

I have no idea how popular it is now, but my husband and I both did some version of it, and I am always up for anything where I get to be crafty, bake, and encourage my son to do something nice for our friends and family. Maybe we'll bring it back in style ;)
