Lucy's idea was a hit with Lily Red and although my schedule kept me otherwise occupied, the girls decided to proceed on their very own. As such, they decided to hold a May Day Giveaway! All are welcome to enter by leaving a comment in which a garden favorite is shared. Any additional tips concerning propagation, consumption, or display of your favorite will be taken into careful consideration by Lily Red when planning her own cottage garden this spring. Entries will be accepted through April 30th. Then, on the first of May, one lucky winner will be selected to receive the fabulous. . . .
"Oh dear," said Lily Red, "we've forgotten the most important part! Whatever are we going to give away?"
Not one to be deterred, little Lucy had another idea. "We'll go on a hunt," she exclaimed, "a treasure hunt in the sewing nook to see what we can find!"
Upon reaching their destination they were warmly greeted by the Lilies, Rose and Alice. A better chance meeting could not have occurred! For while perched high on their shelf, day in and day out, much had been observed. Suggestions as to where some "treasure" might be found were eagerly shared.
First, an old sewing box was opened to reveal an assortment of tiny trinkets from buttons and string to a small stash of seed packets. "Hmm, I wonder," thought Lily Red.
When a small ditty bag was located Lily Red peeked inside. "Very interesting," she whispered.
But when a basket chock full of Yo-Yo Flower Pincushions was discovered Lily Red actually danced a happy little jig!
Their pickings were selected and packed up for the journey back to Wayside Cottage.
And so, in the end, it is two very tired little dolls that invite you to participate in their May Day Giveaway in which the lucky winner will receive a fabulous trio of pincushions nestled snugly in a gingham ditty bag along with a tiny packet of morning glory seeds. The very best of luck to everyone!
