With mother's day right around the corner I am scheming to get my kids to do right by me this year. I certainly cannot make a gift for myself! But I can ask my talented friends to share their amazing DIY gift ideas for Mother's Day with all of us.
Hopefully this will inspire some members of your family, and primarily mine, to get going and pamper mom on Mother's Day with a nice homemade gift or two. Because that's what this mom really wants!
As many of you may or may not know tomorrow is May Day. It is the traditional celebration of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. It is also the International Worker's Day in celebration of workers and the working classes, which is celebrated in September in North America.
But today we are going to talk the flowery kind of May Day. Here in Greece, Tradition dictates that we go out into the fields and pick flowers. We then make a wreath and hang it on our doors.
Last year shared my May Day wreath. That happens to be my favorite wreath ever! I knew that there was no way to try and top myself so this year I gave myself a new challenge. I wanted to incorporate something into the wreath that we all have at home. And help the earth while I was at it.
I'll be sharing with you how to make May Day Wreaths with recycled materials.
A month ago I hosted a Celebrating Spring Link Party with my blogging friends. We were all very happy to see that so many of you joined us. Today I'd like to share with you my features from the party.
For all the bloggers out there, I'd like to thank you for linking up with us. And for all the regular folks, enjoy all the inspiration that our blogger friends have shared with us.
Spring is unofficially here, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and the weather has warmed up. And to celebrate I have gotten together with my friends to host a spring blog hop.
And for spring to roll in, I'm showing you how to make a green wreath for spring. I have a whole collection of them here on the blog. Of course I was not always a wreath maker. You can see my first attempt here. It was not bad, but I think I've managed to improve a bit.
Happy almost Spring!! It is about time that things have warmed up a bit. It's my favorite time of the month again, the Int'l Bloggers Club Challenge. Each month five friends get together and share different topics from their corner of the world. In the past we have talked about Valentine's Day, and of course our special Gift Swap.
This month we're all about Spring. Or in Michelle's case since she's in the southern hemisphere, fall. It may still be raining but the flowers are blooming and that was my inspiration for this month's spring craft of repurposed cordial glasses and saucers into a pedestal.
I'm Mary and I live in beautiful Greece where I like to repurpose and upcycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece.
