Can you believe it's April 30th already?! The eve of May Day and Beltane (and just six months to Halloween and Samhain!)
Since I think it's a bit of a drag to visit blogs that sound like encyclopedias, I won't bore you with a whole history lesson about Beltane Eve and May Day - it's easy enough to look up, and I'm not any kind of authority on the subject anyway...I'm just all up for anything celebrating flowers and spring and involving bonfires and dancing and revelry!
The mantle clock above was actually painted with Halloween in mind, but I think the revelry and merriment of the spring celebration kind of made it's way in there too. It's listed now on eBay. :)
I'll be back tomorrow with some new goodies, and in the meantime, I'm wishing all who celebrate it a Happy Beltane Eve (and if there's anything special you're doing to herald in the season, please share!)
