Happy Friday, everyone!! It's supposed to be a gorgeous weekend here in Minnesota. Sunny and in the 70's. Lovely! I will continue on with sharing the May Baskets I made for my three partners. The second basket has arrived and this was especially made for the vintage queen herself, Andrea. Check out Andrea's blog too, she has a fabulous giveaway going on. So what's a girl to make for someone that seems to have the most fabulous vintage goodies already?! After I found this milk glass basket, I knew I was set. Just what to do with it....Lets start with the outside. I found this gorgeous, very vintage brooch at an estate sale and thought that Andrea would really like it. I made a paper rosette around it and attached it to the basket with pink tulle.For the "heart" of the basket I made a little nest. I added the fun vinage birdy and then started adding flowers and more flowers. I had my radar on at estate sales for vintage flowers and found many different ages and style. I like how they all come together.
Finally I added on one of my favorite old postcards. These darling children are holding lilacs, the ultimate sign of spring here in Minnesota. What a fun May Basket to put together, all with a little vintage flair for my pal, Andrea!!!
