May Day Instructions {Finer Things Friday}

I know I’m a week late with this, but tell me you don’t want a May basket after listening to my three year old’s instructions.  😉

Did you give or receive a special May Day basket this year?

What Finer Things are you celebrating this week? Link up so we can share the simple joys!



  1. We didn’t do May Baskets this year! However, I have many wonderful memories as a child delivering them around the neighborhood. 🙂

  2. Crystal Paine says:

    Is that not the cutest video ever??!!

    Love it!

  3. Oh my sweetness! I adore 3-year-olds and you have a precious 3-year-old! (I used to teach 3-year-old Sunday School before we moved and miss that interaction so much!)

    I suppose I’ve been living under a rock for the past 24 years but I’ve never, ever heard of a May Basket!!! Thanks for enlightening me!

    (And I love your accent!!)

    • 1) I can’t believe you’ve never heard of a May basket! (You’ll have to deliver them with Paxton next year. He’ll have a blast!)

      2) I have an accent?! 😉

  4. Little ones are the cutest!! I have 3 girls ages 12, 8 and then my newly turned 3 yr old. Life is interesting to say the least!! 🙂

    This week I’m sharing my Grilled Steak Lettuce Wraps with Mexican Crema Sauce!! Thanks for hosting!

  5. I am leaving my how-to for homemade foaming soap.

    Saves us tons of money and is fun too :-).

  6. Oh my goodness, she is just so cute. Love it!

  7. Precious!!!

  8. Preciousness. We did NOTHING May Day related this year… well, unless you count the crowning of Mary flower celebration festivities at church. And that was pretty special and beautiful! 🙂

  9. seriously — could she be any cuter!!

  10. Margie says:

    We did! Well actually I had my junior high student council buy the flowers and then we had meals on wheels deliver them. Needles to say they were a HUGE hit and we will do this project again next year.

    I loved the video! I just showed it to my class!

  11. Happy Friday! I am sharing my recipe for Cauliflower Chopped Salad. My vision was to create a gourmet pasta-type salad but to use cauliflower instead of pasta. It has artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, salami and lots of other things in it.
    Thanks for hosting!

  12. Ever since I adopted my two children four years ago I have wanted to do May baskets with them, but usually about a week into May I remember! This year we finally did it. Amazingly most had never heard of May baskets . We had so much fun. We delivered several at church too seeing May 1 was a Sunday.

    • I’m shocked as I learn that a lot of people haven’t heard of them! Tells me we need to do a better job of sharing the joy. 😉

  13. I love it!!

  14. Oh how precious! Kids truly say the most hilarious things and we can learn a lot from them :).

  15. Thank you so much for hosting. Have a great weekend!

  16. Thanks for the linky! Happy Mother’s Day.

  17. This brought back fun memories from my childhood of my brother & I leaving May Day baskets for our neighbors. Looks like your daughter knew exactly what to do and was ready to go 🙂

  18. She’s such a cutie! And she talks just like one of my cousins…makes me miss my family! Thanks for posting it 🙂

  19. She’s SO adorable!! I would definitely want a May basket with that description! 🙂

  20. I had to watch it twice!! Love that she’d be very patient 🙂 and the birds chirping in the background. And….does someone up there on those comments think midwesterns have an accent? 🙂 so sweet.
