The Nester is having a P.O.O.P.I.E. party. Victoria and I are joining in to show off our fakes. We do both have a few fake flowers/branches/grasses, but we are fine w/our choices despite what HGTV says about them. There are plenty of things that I see on HGTV that they should never do either. : )hehehe
Today, just to be ornery, I made a little fall bouquet. I used a few flowers out of a big bunch of fake flowers that came in something I bought from goodwill. It was probably one of those bushes that you buy for $4.99 and just stick in something. No--not me. I cut all the leaves off of the stems and added some sticks. The flower center looks the most fake, but I'll probably hot glue some of the extra petals from the leftover flowers over it to hide it more. It works and it's fake. So sue me. : )
Here we have the above mentioned fake flower bush straight from the vase I bought at Goodwill.
Way too many leaves adorn the stems.
Better, I think.
I have lots of the same types of berries/branches/grasses. I realized how much most of them look very similar while taking these pictures.
Here is a little fern that is hiding some of our charging cords on the kitchen counter. It does look very plastic in the picture, but doesn't in real life. I love the little unfurled fern fronds.
How about a little topiary that I recently acquired at a yard sale. I added the little "grow" letters.
Victoria has some fakes at her house too. A fall bouquet of sticks/weeds and dahlias grace a chippy painted side table. She always has such lovely little vignettes around her house.
I also love this little house plant. She moves it from here to there and it always adds just the right cottage touch.
And last but not least a delish bowl of apples.
Oh, but what's that?...teeth marks?? Yes, our sweet nephew decided to eat a delicious red apple on a visit a few years ago. I guess the first one didn't taste so good, so he tried them all. Vic, I hope you keep those forever. So cute.
