Hydrangeas Drying Flowers

Hydrangeas work brilliantly, for drying flowers. Hang them upside down in a dry, airy, not-too-bright sunlight otherwise, you will bleach them.

Try drying your own flowers at home – hydrangeas work brilliantly. Hang them upside down in a dry, airy, not-too-bright room so they don’t get too bleached by the sunlight.

Don’t they look amazing? I can use them for as long as they last.

I had to bring in my outdoor plants for winter. They are flowering due to my central heating being on. It’s so beautiful to have so many. A great oxygen tank inside my kitchen.

Autumn Leaves

They are huge and the burnt orange colours make an awesome natural accessory, for my dining table.

I teamed them with my red  Caretti Clogs to get into the Christmas mood. It’s all about mental fashion well being and an excuse to dress up. Dress up for the occasion and wear a red hat.
