When I was in high school, I kept a box under my bed filled with all the corsages I'd received from proms, homecomings and Sadie Hawkin's dances. Each corsage was dried out and placed in it's own ziplock bag, labeled with the day, event and name of my date.
Okay–even typing that seems weird, but trust me, they had sentimental value!
These days I don't keep many dried up flower arrangements sitting around my house. When I came across these beauties, I couldn't help but think of how I would've loved ribbons and buttons, instead of the piles of baby's breath and carnations collected throughout the years.
