I need my home to be filled with flowers even in the coldest months. Perhaps even more in the depth of winter. I plant them, and I also make them. I made a paper bouquet that I thought you might enjoy. It's super easy, just in case you want to make one yourself. They grow faster than my paper whites and last forever.
-First, make a handful of recycled paper flowers* following these instructions.
-Then, head outside and gather some delicate bare branches to stick in a vase.
-Finally, stick the end of the branches into the center of the flowers.
* This batch of flowers has been around the block and back... they're the originals that were featured in magazines and have decorated my table at craft fairs. Your own fresh batch will be bouncier, but you know me... I like the story these ones hold. Not like you ever heard me say that before! wink*wink*
