we love the flowers hanging up in our friend mandy's flower shack. they hang from the ceiling and from the walls; they are all so beautiful! mandy uses them in arrangements for local restaurants or for weddings, in addition to her fresh flowers or instead of them. drying flowers is a great way to extend the life of cut flowers- they can last years, really. but, even if they only last a few weeks, i love the way their colors change as they dry.
