Warm Copper and Dried Roses

10.22.2015

Recently I brought my copper collection back out and added it to my pot rack. I love the warmth of copper in the cooler seasons. I had my enamelware colander collection hanging before, but it was time for a change. I have a few bouquets of roses I have dried by hanging tied bunches to the rack and they turn the prettiest patina and just seem to go well with the copper.



I love the colors of this bunch of roses. These are the ones that were in my bedroom in the photo below.




I have picked up the copper pieces at antique shops and the molds from shops and ebay over the last few years.

This is another bouquet I bought at the same time as the pink and green ones. As they continue to dry they will get smaller and browner.

This is another pretty bunch that have been dried for quite some time. I love the way the leaves turn a silvery green.

Another old bunch of red and white. The other bunch above will look like these before long.



I think I have a couple more spots to hang some more bouquets.
I left the one enamelware colander since I use it almost daily.

The French love to cook with copper and I love having these old pieces hanging in my kitchen.

I'm looking forward to attending the Country Living Fair tomorrow.

Happy Thursday!

  2. Copper and roses, what a lovely combination. Do you ever cook with your copper pots or are they just for a beautiful display?

  3. I've gone to the Country Living Country Fair for three years and hate that I'm missing it this weekend. I'm going to New York City instead, (will try to go to some flea markets while there) but I've enjoyed Stone Mountain so much. My 25 year old daughter and I went last year and we ran into a guy that she used to work with in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on one of the food trucks. Organic ice cream! Thank you, Michael! I always buy really quirky things that I don't see anywhere else and never leave without a piece of vintage clothing. Post a boatload of pics so that I'll feel like I went!

  4. What do you use to dry the roses and keep them from shedding petals and pollen all over? And their color?

    1. Patricia, I just keep them in the vase and let them dry a bit and then just hang them and leave them. No shedding at all.

  9. I agree fall is the perfect season to get copper out. And the dried roses look amazing with the soft colour of copper.

  12. I have never dried roses. Don't know why. I guess I'll never get to go to the Country Living Fair. Doubt it will ever come this far. Hope you have fun and find lots of goodies, Kim!

  13. Oh how I would love to hang my copper pots on a rack like that!!
    I have nowhere to display them at this house.
    Your dried roses look lovely there and they are so easy to dry.
    Wish I was a fly on your shoulder at the Country Living Fair!

  15. Kim, copper is a staple in our kitchen. My husband collected copper before we met, and as a serious cook, uses his copper daily. I'm the one who gets to keep it polished. Ha!
    Love the way your copper looks hanging on the piece of iron fencing. Great idea! I remember when you found this great piece.
