Flower "Toot"

Howdy gals. Welcome to the mansion. Wanted to take a moment to "toot" my horn today.

Lots of folks are doing the same over at Silly Little Sparrow.

I LOVE flowers. All flowers. A couple of times a month I pick up a pack of blooms at Wally World to spruce up my entrance table. Just seeing the pretty stems makes me happy every time I walk in the door.

Well...I decided this year to buy only yellow roses and to dry them and keep them for a Christmas project. I wanted to make little rose bundles to place on the Christmas tree. Nothing elaborate, just five dried roses, a pretty pick (from Hobby Lobby) and tie it all together with some ribbon. I ended up having enough dried flowers to do 12 bundles and have a few for the star as well....I didn't think to take pics of the "putting together" but here are a few of the finished product....

I like the way they turned out.

Here are a few of my helpers this year...

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
This will also be posted at DIY Tuesday over at A Soft Place to Land.
