Dried out Flowers

These are the flowers that hubby and kids gave me for mother's day last year. Instead of throwing it, I dried them and save it as remembrance.  When we were in Korea, I used to freeze the flowers I received but I threw it away when we had to leave.  
Do you throw yours?  Have a good weekend everyone!

  2. I used to save mine and dry them. But they'd break up and then when we'd move I couldn't keep them.
    So I quit drying flowers.
    And honestly I haven't gotten roses for years now.
    Yours look beautiful dried!

  12. I don't know, never receive any flowers from anyone, hehehe. I don't give flowers either. I give gifts and chocolates instead. More practical, hehehe. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
