Favorite Find

Favorite Find
I recently found this beautiful picture at a flea market. I just loved it from the moment I spotted it. Looks to be old, the back has a sticker that says Catholic Supply- St.louis Missouri. So much charm.
The pictures looks to be handmade with the words ' May the Giver and Receiver meet in Heaven'. The drawing is beautiful with a angel surrounded by roses.
This is truly a unique and special find.

Drying Hydrangeas
Hydrangeas are one of my favorites. I use dried hydrangeas in vases and wreaths throughout the house. Tips on drying the flowers.
* The best type of Peegee is the standard tree from, not the bush. The Peegee is known as four seasons because of the stages of color- white to green to pink and to brown.
*They are ready to pick for drying when a burgandy tone forms on the tips and the flowers on the branch are firm to the touch.
* Look for the ones that have a define cone shape. They are appealing and hold there shape.
*Hang them upside down to dry. The green and burgandy tones stay bright for up to a year. Beyond that they turn a pretty beige color.
Dried or live hydrangeas gives a cottage home charm.
