Look at the lovely things I got on May Day! From Ashlyn, this folded cone she whipped up from an internet pattern, embellished with a garland of silk flowers and planted with a spider plant start (the dirt is in a plastic baggy). Clever and so sweet! From Liz, a sweet book of "friend" quotes, tied up with ribbon and a posy of fresh picked violets (wilting slightly by the time I took this photo). I don't know if she knew that I love mini books and have a collection of them.
I gave both Ashlyn and Liz one of my cones (previous post), never expecting to get anything in return, so their little gifts were SO wonderful because of that. Complete surprises!
I don't know if it's better to give than to receive. Receiving can be pretty nice too!
