Dried Flowers

Hello friends!  Things have been hectic around here lately, but I wanted to share a small project from a couple of weeks ago.  A dried flower arrangement...


I just couldn't part with these lovely pink roses in the perfect hue, so I decided to make a floral arrangement with them.  I was inspired by this article on dried flowers in the January issue of Jeanne D'Arc Living magazine:

The arrangement looked so pretty and will far outlast fresh roses.  I simply placed the dried roses in a small vase inside this pretty metal pot.  I added water within the pot for my fresh baby's breath.  In time I'll remove the water once they've dried, too.

Just for fun, here's a vignette of paper flowers, too.  I don't have the greenest thumb so these looks suit me fine!

Your dried flower arrangement is gorgeous Susan! I never throw my roses away anymore, I think I prefer them dried than fresh:) I love your little book bundle too, so pretty!

So beautiful! I have begun using my dried white roses that my husband has gotten me and truly love them. Once their dead they are dead and I can use them for along time. (did that just make any sense) :) I love the way they look.

Yours are wonderful with the added baby's breath.
