Valentines and Roses

 Valentine's Day reminds me of South Korea because of the  flowers that I  have frozen over time that we were there.  The house  that we live in inside the base   supplied us with a huge freezer which gave me  a lot of space to store these beauties.  Unfortunately, I had to threw them away when we had to leave.
 Now I learned my lesson, I don't freeze flowers anymore but I dried them.  They may not look as fresh as the frozen ones but at least I can keep them for long.
Thanks for leaving your  comment.

  1. Your frozen gifts of love are so pretty. I can almost smell them, they look so fresh.
    I have dried many flowers. As long as they are dried hanging upside down, they retain their loveliness longer. They hang everywhere in my home.
    BlessYourHeart and Happy Valentines Day~~~soon

  5. Nice tips! When I was in elementary, we always have this project of drying flowers by keeping it flat inside a big book. Tapos after many days ang cute kasi ifframe namin at ieexhibit. Happiness!

    Come see my happiness too!

  9. Pretty,pretty! I add all the preservative that comes with the roses, to the vase and make sure there is NOT the amount of water the manufacturer suggests. I use a much smaller amount and I have learned that by doing this and just letting the roses rest, undisturbed, they will dry in an upright position. I have several bouquets I have done this way and then lightly sprayed with matte acrylic sealer and voila, beautiful roses to add to wreaths, etc.

    What a gorgeous share. I bet those roses smelled heavenly frozen, would make the freezer smell wonderful.

    I love drying flowers though and they do last forever. Yours are so romantic. Thank you for sharing with me this evening.

    Have a beautiful weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
