Happy May Day!

The first day of May! The tradition of secretly filling a basket full of pretty little blossoms and hanging it on a doorknob to surprise and delight an unsuspecting recipient has long passed. It was a special surprise waiting to be discovered by a neighbor or friend. This pretty little fine English bone china teacup by Aynsley, with its violets and blue ribbons circling the saucer, brings that lovely tradition to mind. So, dear friends, consider this your surprise basket of posies to celebrate May Day!
