I wonder if Loi pressed his leaves in a book.

Lisa at Greenbow

How interesting. I would never have thought to do this with Lily of the valley. I bet if you put this dried arrangement in the sun it would fade to the color you wish it to be. I hope to remember to try this this year. Happy Monday.


Nice idea Linda. They are interesting on their own and you may find a way to incorporated it into a vase later as well.


Those Lily of the Valley are so pretty dried, I would never have guessed you could dry them!

Linda from Each Little World

Cindy — ​Loi's leaves still have some curl on them so I don't think he pressed them. But I am going to try it again this spring so we'll see what kind of results I get.

Linda from Each Little World

Lisa — I definitely will try drying them in the sun next time.

Loree / danger garden

I think they're both beautiful, and they've got me missing my Lily of the Valley plants.


I like the green leaves Linda so if it doesn't 'fit' with the Gustavian style perhaps you could rename the style! Thanks for sharing

Like some of the others, I'm surprised that Lily of the Valley can be dried so successfully. They make a beautiful decoration. Thanks for the link too - I'm Scandinavian by heritage (Swedish and Finnish) but I know remarkably little about my ancestry, much less traditional household decoration although I'm always preferred simple design.

Loree — They're so aggressive but I've managed to keep this variety in check. I got rid of the ones with striped leaves which I kind of regret.

Linda from Each Little World

Kris — "Finland Living Design" and "Scandinavia Living Design" are two of my favorite books on design. Kitchen of Light (Norwegian) is a great cookbook: good recipes, gorgeous photos and lovely family stories. ​

Cathy — Your comment made me realize that the "green" leaves work better in my interior than the all brown version.
