I have to thank my sister, Karen for this idea. She sent me a picture of her drying hydrangeas in one of her fall displays. You know what they say about copying someone--it is one of the sincerest compliments. Here goes.
I bought this plant receptacle at an estate sale years ago for a dollar. I never came up with an idea until now.
I went outside and cut a few of the drying magenta hydrangeas.
I placed them in the planter and proceeded to the bedroom where I placed it on a few vintage books.
These flowers should keep throughout the winter.
What a nice, serene place to curl up and read a good book.
