I also just love dried hydrangea. Not far from my home, I discovered a house with a HUGE hydrangea bush. Couldn't hurt to ask the owner for a few stems. The owner obliged, and told me to take all I wanted! Oh my, I was in heaven. The perfect colors for my home too, pale green, and pink! Just plop them in a vase, and no water needed. They dry beautiuflly, and will last long time. The blooms are very fragile though, so be gentle with them.
This little cherub statue, I found for $2 at a garage sale 2 yrs ago. I just love its chippy paint. I love the hydrangeas in here too.
This watering can, I found in Home Goods, and these flowers were perfect. So, look around your yard and see what you can use in your vases to decorate with. Grasses, nuts, goldenrod, all look so nice, and most of it is free. Thanks again Shari for your inspiration. Please stop by and visit her. She has a beautiful cottage home with lots of pink and white. :)
