Pressed Flowers, Dried Flowers and Floral Re-hydration
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is Floral Re-Hydration?
Floral Re-Hydration is a process exclusive to Hannah's where we are able to take flowers that were previously dried, re-hydrate them to make them soft again, open them up and put them into our presses to be dried again and arranged into a floral work of art that will last for generations.

Hannah's Connection with Pressed Flowers
Hannah fell in love with pressed flowers as a young person living in Maryland. Her parents rented a farm house from a generational farmer who kept some of his late mother’s relics in a far corner of the farm house her family rented. Hannah loved to look through the old postcards and pictures. One day she found a small 8x10 frame of pressed flowers that set her mind a blaze with curiosity and wonder. She wondered where they came from and what made them so special that they would be arranged in this special frame?!
As Hannah aged she would watch her mother and grandmother press flowers in books. Every occasion, weddings, deaths, birthdays, season changes and special sunsets would be captured in the form of a flower and between the pages of the nearest book. Now they have both passed and Hannah still finds pressed flowers from time to time in their books and journals. And now Hannah is a compulsive flower presser too!
So there you have it, that is the story of flower pressing and how Hannah became so in love with it. Today, Hannah uses presses, and not books to preserve flowers and she uses tricks and techniques she has learned along the way to offer customers a beautiful pressed product. She also uses her incredibly sharp artists skills (she is an amazing botanical watercolorist) to tint them on occasion so they will forever be in color. Hannah’s artistic eye is schooled on composition and design so she is able to design your pressed memory in a frame that will last for ages.
