May Day Baskets

Merry, Mary, Month of May!
“May the Mother of Jesus and our Mother, always smile on your spirit, obtaining for it, from her Most Holy Son, every heavenly blessing.”
-Saint Padre Pio-
This is how our May Basket (Cones) turned out!
We delivered a few of these to friends and family...
Shabby Chic tags from Dollar Tree
~We titled a virtue on one side and a May greeting on the other side~
Blue ribbon handle, glued to an (oval-shaped) doilie, rolled into a cone.
(We taped the cone)
Also added a miraculous medal to some.  These were special since they were blessed at the actual Miraculous Medal Chapel in Paris!
Merry "Mary" May Day!

Below, are the baskets we made for our local Senior Care Home.  This was one of the things on my list to accomplish for the Mary Month of May.... I picked up the items from the dollar tree, as I mentioned in the post about Preparing for the Mary Month of May.
This is Princess helping with the tags!
Completed baskets, ready to deliver!
"Take shelter under our Lady's mantle, and do not fear.  She will give you what you need.  She is very rich, and besides is very generous with her children.  She loves giving."~Blessed Raphaela Maria~
