Mayday is just around the corner...

We don't have many flowers in the garden yet, truth be told
we have 5 daffodils. 
I am hoping that by next week we have a
few blooming branches to make a few
Mayday bouquets.

(These are from 2010... where does the time go?)

Grab some paper towel tubes and toilet paper tubes
from the recycling bin and 
make them all pretty with
spring papers, buttons, a ribbon hanger, some glitter
and well...
and make yourself and your friends
a little vase to hang on the door!

I put a test tube inside of this one, but
if you don't have a test tube to put the flowers in,
just wrap them in wet paper towel wrapped in aluminum foil.

Nothing will bring a smile to your friends faces
more than finding a little bouquet hanging from the door!
Heck, the smile it will bring to your own face
will make it worth it!

Want another reason to smile?
Lynn from Blue Skies is having a giveaway!
There will be 3 winners ~
I threw my name in the hat, because well,
I love her, her ramblings on her blog, 
her art work is beautiful and I would love to have one for my very own!
Throw your name in the hat before Sunday
 and tell Lynn I said hello!

bring on the smile factor.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
