When my sister was visiting she said I should write a post about my dried hydrangea. So I am, with a bit of furniture and finds added in.
Donna of Funky Junk Interiors decorates with dried hydrangea and that is when I tried out various ways of drying. (in Donna's blog search for 'hydrangea' -lots of great posts on that topic).
I tried the 'hang upside down', then put in water and let them dry out very slowly, the put them in the container you want them to stay in and let them dry. My favorite way is the dry in the container method. Worked best for me. (see wreath, cloche)
The tin candle mould is one of my long time favorite pieces. It joined this grouping after a bit too much 'play around' from little visitors.
Here is a bit of history about the pie safe part 1 and part 2.
The pie safe is about the only space in my home (lives in the kitchen) where I can take a 'tall' picture of something.
Here is a 'long view' of the pie safe in its present location. With the exception of the sink counter, stove and fridge all my walls are 'bare' of built-ins.
Today that tall something is ....
a dress form. DH found it on Saturday and I did do the happy dance.
Thank you for visiting.
I will be back Monday at 7:00 a.m.
