While I was living in my first house I had beautiful dried flowers hanging in my kitchen. The kitchen had big wood beams on the ceilings so it was perfect for hanging dried flowers. I looked gorgeous and gave my kitchen a warm welcoming look and feel. Along with the huge hearth that was in there I loved the kitchen in my first house. It was a different style house (federal row house circa 1790) that one would kind of expect to find dried flowers hanging someplace inside of it. Walking into my first house I always had the feeling of stepping back in time to the 1700's.
My present house is a Queen Ann Victorian and it really never occurred to me to hang dried flowers in it. This house has a whole different "personality". I really love pretty dried flower vignettes. I think that I will experiment a bit with some dried flower arrangements for my present house. The holidays are fast comping up and I want to do something really special in the way of decoration. Dried flowers will be a change of pace since I have not done that yet in this home.
I think that it would be fun to learn how to dry flowers yourself.
