Why yes, it's unusual for me to post on a Sunday but I wanted to wish you a Happy May Day!
I'm going to guess that many of you remember growing up during the Cold War when May Day wasn't celebrated because it was considered a communistic holiday. Although it was celebrated as "the International Workers Day" in communistic countries, the actual holiday has been celebrated--and still is-- for centuries in most cultures as the first day of spring. I have elderly neighbors who remember dancing around the May Pole when they were young.
May Day is often featured in early 20th century textiles. I don't own a single piece that features this holiday but found some on Pinterest and online auctions to share with you:
Tablecloths include this beauty found via pinterest on another blog.
It's my favorite season and favorite month and I hope you get to enjoy a wonderful warm day to celebrate!
