Description from S KatollakaSue: The gorgeous blues in the new recycled glass are the foundation of this pick. The new Tierra Cast pieces wanted in, too, so it began to feel like a beautiful day in May. I added some weather indicators as well as more flower symbols, et voila!

    Yes, very good. Add a basket (but we have none I like) and we’d have May Day. Or do all the various connotations add up to “never mind?” (Communist parades etc.? I remember making tiny May baskets for my teachers, woven out of grasses & filled with berries/violets, knocking on the door & running away, leaving basket. But I’m sure nobody does that anymore.

    Please excuse my humbugness – your pick is lovely & will make fine pieces – it’s just that everything I think of seems to flip over & show up dirty cardboard. Pay no attention to it. Sorry.

    I get it. May Day, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, all carry some baggage. And yet May can be one of the loveliest months with clear, bright flower-laden days that can rival anything June offers. We all have times when the dirty cardboard just can’t seem to stay hidden. Human thing, I guess… No worries, my friend!

    I can feel the warm breeze and smell the earth! Lovely

    May day! How I loved making may baskets. Sadly by the time I was a teen that tradition was a thing forgotten. Lovey wispy clouds in a beautiful blue sky.

    May Day baskets hand woven with construction paper, filled with popcorn and candies. We used to take them to school to pass out to class mates and take to grandparents, neighbors and family friends. Now crafty things are out of the question in school. I remember seeing pictures of Maypole dances in Poland and thinking that would be cool. Now to tell you, Sue, I love your stunning pick for May.
