Dried Herbal Bouquet

I recently took some dried herb bundles and made a simple little bouquet. Anyone can dry herbs.......................just snip the herbs and secure with rubber bands into little bunches. Hang the bunches upside down to dry. I do this all summer long so I have a lot of dried herb bundles for crafting.

I grabbed some dried lavender.................................and marjoram.....................


...............a few dried roses.............................


Put them all together with another rubberband................


then wrapped the stems with a ribbon salvaged from my craft box. This bouquet will brighten up a shelf in the bathroom this winter.

Happy Fall Y'all

I so love this time of year................. This is the first year my bittersweet vine has bloomed. You must have a male and a female plant growing close together to get the berries on the vine. The berries are covered with these golden pods that pop open to reveal the orange-red berry inside.



I've cut a bunch for decorating and wreath making.........about 6 wreaths already.......

That's why there is no picture of the bittersweet vine itself as it is pruned and ready for next year.........................so..............
Happy Fall Y'ALL
