I need your help. Badly. Those of you who are craftypants in your spare time, this is your chance to shine.
You know in the 90’s when dried flowers were kind of *it*? No? Well they were in Utah, and I was hot and fast on the trend. Two major milestones happened for me in the 1990’s: I was married in 1998 and in 1999 Precocious was born. No need to do the math, we were married 18 months before she showed up.
Both milestones meant there were flowers to commemorate the occasion. I saved my gorgeous wedding bouquet, let it dry as is, and have always had it in a glass vase on some bookshelf or the other for the last 12 years.
I’m not sure I can just chuck them, can I? It’s too late to do much with them, they’re crumbly as it is. I pulled them down from on top of my kitchen cabinets when we painted the kitchen and the longer I look at them the more obsolete they seem.
Do I save them, throw ‘em out, re-purpose them into something even more fabulous? Am I becoming unsentimental in my old-ish age? Will I regret it later if I toss them in the garbage? Please, rescue me.
