French Drying Rack

I have found another use for my French drying rack......

I am using it to dry roses!

I love fresh flowers and my favorite is I have a bouquet in our home pretty often!

I had this bouquet on the Hoosier at Easter...

I had this one in the sun room just a few weeks ago.  I never throw my fresh roses away when they fade...I always dry them.
My drying rack has stored coffee cups...

it's even been a Christmas tree!
but for now....It is drying roses!

  1. I love that you think outside the box. Love that hoosier. Deb

  2. I think you are amazing,the pretty ideas you come up with. It's so nice to see all your pretties. x

  3. I have one of those drying racks. Thanks for the inspiration of new ways to use it.

  4. I love the little pink vase holder it is so unusual. What is it Penny?

    1. Hi Di, it is a vintage rubber stamp holder...I was lucky enough to find some glass "vases" that fit perfect in the stamp clamps!

  5. Penny,
    Great idea!! I have to find me one of those!!


  6. What a great use for your drying rack! Love it. Have a great week!

  7. I love your roses bouquet! Your ideas are always great, clever and very romantic.

  8. What an appealing vignette from a drying rack! I love all the elements you have included.

  9. LOVE it all , my colors pink & white . I like the shinny brite ball wreath so much

  10. Inventive uses for your drying rack. It's great isn't it we can use things for everything we can think of, not just what it was created for. Everything you've used it for is pretty smart.
    I almost had one of the drying racks from The Deal (or whatever it's called site) but I had problems with the process of paying for it part and just backed out. I could kick myself but oh well maybe some other time. I'd sure love to have one tho, it was a smaller version they said. Happy days
    Smart to dry your roses to use for whatever else you think of, think you'll think of something also. Your arrangement are so pretty.

  11. Hi Penny, Love the rack and it is perfect for drying those gorgeous roses and all the other ways you have displayed with it.Such a great piece. I would love to find one. Love your wreath in the first pic and also the glimpse of the cabinets. Did you paint them white? Gorgeous.

    Have a great week.
    hugs, CM

  12. Penny, I love roses also and that rack is amazing. So many uses with just a little imagination. I love it. Thanks for linking up at Transformed Tuesday.
