Dried hydrangeas...

The hydrangeas mentioned in my last post were tied with string and hung upside down in my utility room.

How did they turn out? Well, here is the entry hall mirror before, notice the old hydrangeas on the little shelf...

It's an old pub mirror I found in my travels, btw...
...and here are the newly dried hydrangeas:



I also had some old hydrangeas in a jug on the kitchen corner shelf...


...which have been replaced:



But wait, what’s that wee bit of colour in the corner? They’re the Rainbow Party pom poms, of course!


Would you take them down? No, me neither. At least not til Christmas!



Thank you all for your comments and tips on my last post, I am very grateful indeed!

  5. The hydrangeas look lovely, especially with all of your pieces of china. I would keep the pom poms up too, they certainly add some cheer on these dark days. xx

  7. The dried hydrangeas look amazing! I would love to bring them in from my garden but I did so once and discovered a lot of tiny bugs on them. So now I am afraid to do so! The old pub mirror is such a cool find!!! The pom poms look so fun on the wall. Totally colorful!

  14. Well done, they look fab. And definitely don't take those rainbow pom-poms down - in fact I'm sure you could even find a way to incorporate them in your Chrsitmas decor too! ;-)
    Have a happy week, lovely xx

  19. So many pretty ways to display your hydrangeas! I wish I had more this year, I really love them, but had to make do with two blooms. And so nice to have a peek at your house, too! x
