Aw so fun to see both of your lace inspired cones and I think you both did a great job! I was with Stefanie at the flea market when she found the table cloth and lace for you! I found some lovely things for you that day too. What a pity that your May basket from me hasn't arrived yet while I can already admire mine from you!
You better don't come to my blog before your parcel arrived because I posted about our swap today and don't want to spoil your surprise.
Happy May Day dear Tina!

What beautiful creations. Interesting to see the original concept of a bunch of herbal and fragrant flowers worn as a protection against germs used in a new delightful way.
