May Day Tradition

Hi Everyone
Happy Monday

 this Sunday is
~May Day~
These vintage pictures show old May Day celebrations
In our home we have our own  May Day tradition
We hang garden flowers on our front door
I  make small hanging jars of  garden flowers
and secretly  put them on my friends front doors

Here is our door knocker
on our front door

Here is the little hanging
jar of
garden flowers

I was told that hanging flowers on your front door on
May Day
brings happiness and good luck to a home
any excuse to put flowers on the front door
and it is so fun to surprise my  friends on May day too
linking with House in the Roses for
Show off your Cottage Monday
Keep it Simple for
Motivate me Monday

  2. AHHH... Your posts are always so dreamy.. love the door knocker...

  3. For some reason, May day is my favorite day of the year...it seems fresh and new like the start of spring.
    I love the jar idea! and it's not like I have a shortage of pretty jars around my house. :)

    Have a lovely day ~

  4. LOVE your gorgeous simple door knocker!!

  5. Oh how I remember May Day when I was a child. The May pole was so fun. Love your blog and your posting. I am going to hand flowers on my fron door, maybe it really will bring happiness. Thanks for sharing. Karie

  6. I think this is a sweet tradition. I once lived in a neighborhood where a lady placed May Day flowers on everyone's front door. The arrangements were in tin cans with bright green ribbons! :D

  7. what a sweet idea! some friends of Gabi's ( the little girl that has cancer on my blog) came by her house while she was in the hospital and decorated the trees, yard and front door and left Easter baskets for Gabi and her sisters. Your post reminded me of that:) Happy Monday.

  8. This tradition I had not heard of ... we always made little handcreated paper baskets & filled with flowers, then knocked on the doors & ran away to watch the oooh's & ahhh's when they found them.

    Love this idea ...

    Have a beautiful week ~

  9. Very cute! What a great idea for May, when we all want to see the beautiful flowers.


  10. What a thoughtful idea to do for neighbors and friends. Your roses are beautiful.

  11. Pam, I remember having May Day celebrations at school. We would go around the May pole-such fun! What a lovely thing putting fresh flowers on your door and neighbors!

  12. Hi Pam.. the roses look just lovely .. especially against your beautiful white door.. love those window panels!!

    thanks also for 'hanging' my rose on your sidebar.. hope you had a lovely easter.. and I can't believe it is almost May!! ciao ciao xxx Julie

  13. What a sweet idea!
    Your pictures are lovely!

  14. Your front door looks so cute! My wedding anniversary is on May Day, so fresh flowers is something I look forward to from my honey! Lovely pictures as always, Marcia

  15. So precious... it would be so lovely to just open up my front door and find something as lovely as this. What a nice thing to do for your friends.


  16. I love this tradition
    and would be so surprised
    to have one of these pretties
    waiting on my door! When
    my kids were little, they
    used to love sneaking a basket
    onto the neighbor's door : )
    Thanks for the reminder!

  17. May Day! I love giving flowers to the special people in my life and sometimes the not so special people.....(talk about surprises when the not so special people react to a kind deed!)
    Your photo's are so simple and beautiful. Thanks for a reminder that May is almost here! I will be leaving a few door surprises on Sunday!

    Love that I have found your blog! ox
