~~ May Showers Bring Spring Flowers ~~


As children we got up early in the morn to distribute our darling little paper baskets we created w/crayola designs & glued together the night before. The excitement mounting, we filled the baskets with snippets of flowers from Mother's gorgeous spring flowers in her gardens ... running to neighbors homes, ringing the doorbell, then hiding so we could enjoy their ooooooh's & ahhhhh's as they opened the door to find the little gift we had left them.

Such glee & joy it brought to us each.

This vintage feedsack is from the 1930s -50s era. I give to you the love of friendship, the beauty of flowers & 'angel showers' to bless your day.

Have a lovely weekend.
