Old Table and Dried Roses~~


Finally finished painting my bargain side table.  Pay no attention to this rug!  I'm changing it out for a brown and aqua rug soon in this room~~reason for painting this table and another one to match.  I hope to get better pictures next week of my "before and after"~~   


After sanding the table top portion, I used a darker stain; next week I'll put a sealer on. 


I love little dried roses~~these were left over from a bouquet last week; could not bear to throw them out just yet.  I have this little vignette on the shelf near the computer~~


Do you dry flowers?  I like tucking them into little apothecary jars~~sweet reminders of summer and garden.  The Sweet Annie is more than ready to cut and dry~~will be bundling bouquets of it for my booth this next week. 

Are you still gathering from the garden?  Leftover flowers, seeds, leaves?

  1. Your table is fabulous! I do love it! Oh yes, I keep dried flowers. I haven't been saving my seeds, just letting them fall to the ground. I suppose I should tuck a few away now that you mention it!

  5. I know this sounds creepy but I have every rose Hubby ever gave me. When they start to droop, I hang them upside down to dry and gather them into bundles. They smell wonderful, not like roses, but musky and sweet.
    I love your little vignette.
