My New Discovery

Have you figured out what this is? I'll tell you: It's my new way of drying corn silk, corn husks, wool and anything else I can put on it. It is made out of layers of bread trays. I think they will be perfect for the job, they stack nicely with spaces in between, have excellent ventilation and since they do stack I don't have to spread corn husks all over the floor to dry. If you want to see where I got theses bread racks you can read about it here on our family blog. I didn't like tearing down the old fort where they came from but I will admit that they do make capital drying racks. Please, if you have any spare corn silk, please may I have it? It may look like I have enough all ready but I want as much as I can get. I use it in my pressed-flower pictures, corn husk dolls and as the hay for my Nativities. So I go trough a lot of corn silk.


  1. I love your corn husk dolls! I think the bread trays are a great idea. Where did they come from in the first place?

  2. Thank you for your comment! A friend gave them to me. I think she got them as a result of some sort of an event in the park. She said that places selling wholesale food are probably where you'd find them.

    Have a nice day!
