I love hydrangeas

When I was young my mother kept an assortment of dried flowers. She had a large collection of pussy-willows that were gorgeous! I've come to find that I enjoy collecting and photographing dried flowers as well.
Say hello to the new bouquet of dried flowers now in my room! (also below). I just love this type of dried flower.. and I've come to compile quite a collection of photos of them! (all photos taken by me!) Enjoy!
Also, in one of my all time favorite movies, Harold and Maude, Maude has a bouquet of dried flowers on her living room table that I FELL in LOVE with! Everything about that movie inspires me. Hope you're having a swell Saturday! ;D Thank you all so much for the kind thoughts and comments!!
love, polly

I love dried flowers too!
We've had a small bunch on the mantlepiece for some time now, which look quite a lot like these.
Looking forward to Suitcase Sunday!

Loved this post! The mere mention of "Harold and Maude" made me smile and dried flowers! I have many of them through out my home. Sometimes you just can't part with a bouquet of pretty flowers, so why not dry them?
Love the photos as well, love the outfits and photography.

I just recently watched Harold and Maude for the first time - how I didn't catch it earlier I don't know. I am sure it wasn't the last time :D

Sweet flowers and I love the colour of your socks - especially with this bright skirt :)

Is that a bag with the face of a clock on it. So gorgeous. :)

I love dried flowers too. Making them is a tedious process but I love discovering them from in between the pages of a book years later. :)

Look forward to hearing from you
