Happy May Day!!!

Hello and Happy May Day! It's a beautiful day here in WV on the first day of May!

May Day Around the World~~~

Some countries still celebrate May Day. In France, May Day is a flower festival. Delicate white flowers called lilies of the valley are believed to bring good luck. In Denmark, sweethearts give each other bouquets of lilies of the valley. Holland celebrates May 1 with a tulip festival. On May 1 in Greece, the schools are closed. The students trek into the woods to gather flowers. In some other countries, May is a day of parades.

I could not resist sharing this cute little pic from a new CD that I just purchased on ebay! Isn't she sweet?
Below is a pic of the first banner I've made, I used silk for the background. Do you like?

A fewcloseups.
Notice Holly Hobbie peeking around the corner?

You can't see too much of it but I just painted this garden trellis in cottage green to hang tags and banners on.
Below is a card and tag I recently made for a sweet friend of mine.
Thank you for stopping by! Tomorrow I will post some pics of my May Day Swap, be sure to stop back and look when you have time!
Blessings to you! Shirl
