Maybe - so.......... to the tune of 'Money for Nothing' Take it away ........

Now look at them flowers thats the way you do it
You play the framer from ten 'til three
That aint workin thats the way you do it
Money for nothin' 'cause it's acid free

Now that aint workin that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya us framers ain't dumb
Maybe get a papercut on your little finger
Maybe get a Boyle on your bum

You can dry 'em in microwave ovens
Between your Nielsen deliveries
You gotta try those refrigerators
You gotta think of freakin' UV!

See the little Moglet with the morso and the keencut?
Yeah buddy thats her own hair
That little framer got her own darn language
That little framer she's a breath of Áir!!

......You can dry 'em in microwave ovens

I shoulda learned to press wild flowers
I shoulda learned to kill them flumbs
Look at that frama - she's Moglet stickin' to the forum
Man we could have some fun...........

"I want my...
I want my...
I want my MTV*"

I'm gonna print that out, do some fontification, and frame that, John! 'Defolutely' brilliant :lol: :lol:

Sorry, btw, for the lack of "pressed" earlier - I erroneously assumed that readers would take "collage" to mean "fairly flat." Mea maxima, maxima culpa! :roll:

Hi there,
Flowers or other plant parts must be dried using proper procedure to avoid molds. If the dried flower or dried plant parts have water content, it will decay at a faster pace. Keeping flowers in the sun is a good way to get rid of moisture but it is a curative measure. I believe prevention is better than cure. Therefore, you should buy flowers that are dried using proper method. In case you are drying your flowers by yourself, you should dry your flowers using right process. Hope that was helpful. :)
