Pretty, practical things to make from nature.
From the back cover:
I. From the drying shed
All the how-to's for picking, drying and storing flowers and foliage - for making exquisite bouquets, or embedding them in shining paperweights and decorative ornaments.
II. Pressed Keepsakes from the garden:
Framed as pictures; wedded to lucite in coasters, trays, boxes; as grandly floral placemats or tipped onto note paper or cards - colorful or restrained, as fancy distates.
III. Aromatic virtues
Scented petals captured in potpourri, spicy sachet for the closet, luxurious bath sachet and herbal lotion, a fragrant necklace of rose beads - even a beguiling catnip pad.
IV. Culinary delights
Candied violets and flower-flavored sugars, herb butters and mustards and bouquets garnis, old-fashioned herb and flower jellies and authentic recipes for May Wine and Dandelion Wine.
V. Gifts for all seasons
Pomanders and pressed flower Valentines, Autumn wreaths and Christmas ornaments - and a pressed flower calendar to mark your gift-giving year.
