Why oh why has no one ever told me that you can dye flowers? Did you know this? I picked up these lovelies from Costco the other day to put in my new tulipiere. I know that technically you are supposed to have tulips in a tulipiere, but for the occasion that I was purchasing flowers for, I liked these better. A friend of mine came over and I was telling her that I wanted to experiment with dyeing flowers like the ones I had just bought; and she went on and on about how she had done it many times and it was very simple. I certainly could have used this knowledge while throwing many parties in years past, but if any of you have ever done it I would love to know how it went.
In other news, this is the current center piece on my kitchen table. What do you think? My cute carpenter says it's weird, actually he said "what's up with all the little bushes on the table Mr. Miyagi"? They are technically not little bushes but rather herbs and then a ground cover moss thrown in just because I thought it was pretty. I have rosemary, lemon thyme (which smells great), and then lavender. We will see how long they last.
