OK, Rion, in your equally awesomenousness......Happy May Day to you!!!.
Does anyone but me remember actually making paper cones and filling them with little flowers and hanging them on the neighbor's door knobs...knocking and then running away? Back when we wandered small towns on our own pretty young.

I remember! We hung May Day paper cones on door knobs as kids. I sometimes long for little childish rituals or crafts like that.

This was from early April, but here's a virtual (albeit late) May Day bouquet for both you and Rion.

Jocelyn. thank you...how very sweet! (and very awesome!).
My mother was the instigater of that sort of thing...I grew up not very aware of how little money they raised us on until years later...we just made everything. And the process of making and giving was the important part...yes, special rituals...special memories.

I knew a family that had a simple rule for giving each other birthday/Christmas gifts:

It had to be either found, or made by the person giving it.
(And they weren't poor.)

Their home had many pieces of driftwood, sea shells, and hand made pottery.
Each piece had a special meaning to them.

 
Anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly first. Just look at this tiny ad:
