The dried arrangement I made for the credenza in my living room was getting rather tatty and it really didn't look right for the fall season, Nothing else works as well here as a large bouquet. So I decided to make another one that would be more reflective of autumn and this is the result.
Although they are not as fashionable as in the past, I love dried flower arrangements, partially because they last so long. I love fresh flowers but I am too lazy, too busy, and too fugal to constantly be making large arrangements and that is what is necessary for this space.
For this I used lots of eucalyptus, it is such a good filler and dries beautifully, various hydrangeas, including oak leaf, queen annes lace, twigs, grass seed-heads, dried peonies and some berries.
I will keep this through the fall and put it away for the Christmas holiday season.
The little ghosts are only here visiting until Halloween. I have several of them throughout the house and I smile every time I walk into a room and see one. It is amazing how much fun you can get out of a bit of paper!
I hope that you are enjoying the cooler weather and the lovely autumn season. Here in Southern California it is so nice to finally have a respite from the heat.
Thank you for visiting
