So there i was, yesterday, I'd popped into town in the morning and I'd found myself being drawn to a charity shop that I don't usually go into. I was 'killing' time before an appointment. I had a peak in and nothing really caught my eye, but my eye level is on the short side...all 5foot and a half inch of me (mustn't forget the all important half inch, keeps me on the right side of 5ft, lol)...anyway I looked up to the very top shelf and what was there screaming YOU NEED ME....BUY ME ...BUY ME...you're not gonna believe it, but there on the highest ever shelf was....
a Flower Preserving Kit...just what I needed after my recent flower dilema. Inside the items are in excellent condition, I'd say it has never been used. There is a flower press, which I'll nab the paper from for my own press, 2 picture frames, glycerine, florist wire & tape, oasis and a cute wee basket & ribbon!!! Rather a lot for my measly one pound.
Interestingly though, it shows the 3 different methods...yes, 3!! I thought there was only one - flower pressing.....but air drying and glycerine methods are used too. Now without sounding like I'm in my 80's, no offence to any older readers of that wonderfully wise age, I'm actually getting quite into this flower preservation thing. So when I have a spare moment, or two, I'll have a go and let you see what
disaster lovely outcome I end up with....ever the optimist LOL...x
