Is there anything better on a day off from work than drinking tea, eating cake and flower pressing?
A bit of a lost craft but flower pressing has always been a hobby of mine since childhood when my nan bought me my first flower press. This has sadly been long lost so its back to pressing the old fashioned way in a big book! At this very moment i have some of my valentines roses pressed between the pages of Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire.
Pressed flowers are delicate and enchanting and I love the way it is preserving something beautiful that would otherwise wither and decompose.
