Just a touch of color

The lovely flowers my husband purchased for me last week were dried in my large deyhydrator.
I can admire them for years to come.
They look lovely in my potporri bowls.
My dehydrator is an Excalibur that I purchased a long time ago.
Go here to see a nice selection of excaliburs

A scary story: years ago I sliced up some apples and dried them in slices to use in my crafts. 
I had heavily seasoned them with apple/cinnamon potporri fragrance and sealed them in clear bagsvelvet sky surprised look Pictures, Images and Photos
My husband complained that evening of a stomache ache ... much to our dismay we discovered that he had eaten a whole lunch baggie size of the apple potporri chips! To this day he says I tried to poisen him!

My photo
I love shabby,used,chipped,white,old,vintage, antique,junky gently loved stuff. I would love to dumpster dive but I could get a citation from the county. I adore my dogs, my grand kids and bathing in my tub outside. I am sensitive, eager to make friends although self conscious about it. I am faithful and very very generous at heart. I cry over stuff sentimental and sweet. I adore April Cornell clothing (although I can't afford her stuff)and anything sheer and vintage and loose. I'd live in my pj's and never ever wear a bra again. I love the beach and dancing in public places with my grand darlings and day time babies. I adore my kids and love my hubby although I could kill him a time or two. Yard sales and thrift stores are my died and gone to heaven activities. I love to spend money on these but usually am broke.
