#10 May Basket for Amy
Old Tradition with an Old Friend!
Well, my friend is not old...she's a month younger than me. But we met 47 years ago....and the hideous May Basket I made for her is a tradition that goes back further than the fifties. I remember as a child, making little baskets from cupcake liners and pipe cleaners and adding a few yard flowers or candies before dropping them on the porches of my friends.
I hadn't seen Amy in over 40 years, so I hoped she would still have a good sense of humor, when I handed over this basket....created with some stuff I found in my car. Luckily when we met up for lunch in Carlsbad, Amy had a good chuckle when I handed her the somewhat mangled treat. Happy May and Happy Birthday to Amy. She is celebrating her BYB today!

57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
