It’s mayflower season in Sweden. I noticed one of the little paper flowers on my girl Katarina’s Lolita blog today. I wish I could import this tradition to Los Angeles. Every year — for more than a hundred years — Sweden’s Mayflower Charity Foundation has sold these little flowers to raise money to fight child poverty. Their website has a lovely catalogue of all the flowers — dating back to 1907. The idea was started by Ms. Beda Hallberg from Göteborg. “Her simple but brilliant idea was that everyone could contribute by buying the small flowers from children – ‘Children helping children’,” according to the website.
Brilliant and beautiful!
I hope you all are having a lovely Wednesday. I’m going to a charity event in Beverly Hills tonight. I was thinking about leaving a little early to take some Polaroids on Rodeo Drive. If I don’t return, you can probably find me still wandering around the Prada store.
