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!


  1. I just dried some flowers myself this week and framed them this morning.

  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!

  3. i used to dry roses but i stopped recently lang.
    by the way mare, pa-follow din ha? thank u.
    how's it going?

  4. I dried some of the flowers from my daughter's wedding bouquet. I would never have thought of freezing them!

    Thanks for the visit!

  5. Wonderful shots of freeze flowers.

  6. still lovely even if it's dry. i wonder what will i receive for mother's day this year?

  7. I have a couple still...that I pressed in a book, from nearly 5 decades ago.
