A May Day Giveaway

Happy May Day! When I was a little girl, on May 1st I would always love to pick a bouquet of flowers, put them in a little basket or container of some kind, take them to my mom and/or a neighbor, knock on the door and run and hide to watch them discover their little surprise. It was always so much fun. Over the years I have also been the recipient of similar May Day baskets. It is such a happy and simple tradition.

In honor of May Day, I would like to host a May Day giveaway. This is my first giveaway, and I hope it proves to be a fun little adventure. First things first, this is what is included:

*A box of Tazo Awake tea -- currently one of my favorites.

*A package of Ghirardelli chocolate candies -- again, one of my favorites

*A red and white crocheted dishcloth -- to bring a bright spot to your kitchen while you are washing your dishes.

*A machine embroidered dish towel that I made out of toweling purchased by the yard -- another bright spot for your kitchen

*And one of my funny chicken pincushions -- Besides using these as a pincushion, I like to just have a couple sitting around my kitchen.

In order to win this fun little May Day gift, please just leave a comment. On Mother's Day (May 10th), I will use a random number generator and choose a winner.

Oh, I love this little gathering of goodies. Please count me as entered in the giveaway.

Any Tazo tea is my favorite right now, too. And I have been eying those chickens since you first posted about them!

What a fun little package! I've enjoyed reading your blog for a while now, although I don't comment much because I'm usually reading while I nurse. :) Love all the fun ideas here!

I love the idea of a giveaway...and was eyeing the 'peg bag' on Amoretti. Your collection is wonderful...and so cheery and bright in red and whites. Thanks for posting about May Day...I had the same idea. I too love the tradition. Happy May Day to you too!
