While we were dating, I saved all of the roses that my husband sent me – I had hung them upside down to dry. Sweetheart that he is, I had quite a bunch saved and wanted to do something special with them.
So, I chopped off all of the buds and a few of the leaves and made potpourri out of them. Then I went to the local crafts stores and bought an assortment of empty Christmas ornaments to fill – gold spun, and big and little clear glass balls. It was a challenge to fit some of the potpourri into the balls, but I filled them all about half way full. Then I decorated the tops with ribbons, beads and silk flowers.
I didn’t tell him what they were until after the tree was all decorated… he thought I bought them. He was surprised and amazed that I had saved all of his roses and that they weren’t left to rot in a box in the attic. And I just love telling people that come over and see our tree that all of the roses I got while we were dating are hanging for all to see…
