Making Potpourri

Happy Wednesday!

The roses from last week have all dried up, so I made potpourri. I'm really amazed at how their colours have remained so vibrant and took heaps of photos of them.

PS: I'm hosting a giveaway tomorrow (wheeee!), so be sure to visit.

They're beautiful. I've never thought about making potpourri before. Probably should learn how to spell that word without looking first.

all you did was just leave them out? see, everythign i try to do dried roses it doesn't work out...petals fall off too soon, they get moldy. what the heck is my issue :( i took one of the roses my boyfriend got me to press and make some kinda bookmark maybe out of it, i dunno yet. but i haven't checked inside the book im pressing it in, im assuming it's moldy and gross haha. well yours is lovely!!!
