Announcement    FINAL SALE of dried flowers is finished, thank you for your orders
My name is Viktoria, I live in Ukraine. Before the Russian invasion into my country, I had an interesting life and small floral business. I was happy to communicate with people from different parts of the globe, to grow flowers, to dry herbarium, to draw, to create, and to make our world beautiful...

But on February 24, a cruel war began. Аt one moment I lost everything. I had to move, taking my cat, part of my dried flowers and the most necessary things with me. Now I am in Western Ukraine, in relative safety.
Every spring I started to gather flowers from different regions of Ukraine. Now it is very dangerous to gather flowers on the meadows, to search for tiny mushrooms with tweezers in forests. Because our seas, forests, fields are mined by russian troops...
Unfortunatelly, I had to make a difficult decision and stop selling dried flowers. One thing will remain unchanged - my love for beauty, for flowers, for nature.

Now only stickers with real dried plants from the fields of my beloved Ukraine will remain in the store.
All sets are unique. When you buy them - you support me a lot, I am very grateful for your kind hearts!
Stay with Ukraine! Slava Ukraine!

About DriedFlowerStory

Sales 4,845
On Etsy since 2018

Looking for the smallest plants since 2016, and quality comes first!

My name is Viktoria. I live in Kiev, Ukraine.
I am an artist, a designer and photographer.
I love to travel and to study the local flora. I began to bring interesting plant specimens to my botanical collection.

Then I was involved in making resin jewelry with real plants. For my hobby, I started to collect different flowers, and experiment with drying methods. My plants do not lose color and shape when dried, well stored.

Especially I like the tiny flowers and herbs that can be used in very small bouquets. They preserve the natural beauty after pouring them with resin.

Since then, my collection of herbariums has grown. Every spring I go to my Grandmother's garden on the South of Ukraine to gather Forget-me-nots and early spring flowers, in summer I go to the Carpathians to find wild berries, strawberries, in autumn I search for different tiny mushrooms in various forests, in winter i find moss and lichen.

Now my little business is my big love to flowers which I'd like to share with everyone!

All plants, which I sell in my store are well dried, so take them carefully. Some flowers better to take with tweezers.

You can put a little silica gel at the bottom of the container.

Observe the humidity in the room where the plants are stored, it should not exceed 55%
