Faux, Faux, Faux

It's been snowing for hours here in Maine, gray, cold, pretty icky out!  I won't go out today, that's for sure, I'll play inside!


I'm bringing Spring to my dining room on this wintry day.  I love doing this, running around the house, gathering things that might look nice together and just seeing what happens.


WARNING:  I am using fake or would you rather I say faux flowers?  I know many people hate, hate, hate them and they can be tacky, really tacky, you know what I'm talking about.


Well, my little Spider Orchids were fifty cents a piece and I just couldn't resist them.  So, I transformed my sideboard with a bunch of plastic and silk.















Is it because it is so gray and gloomy out that I think these look okay?  Please tell me if I've wasted my $2.50!


Remember my old sideboard?




It's so cheery now.




I had to change the centerpiece, the white urn went to the sideboard.








Oh dear is that a faux dog?


The mantle got springified.












Could those white things be faux vegetables?  This place is a faux pourri!!


So I had some fun and turned this..




Into  this.




What do you think about faux flowers, would you ever use them your lovely home?  Let's be honest, now.

Brenda, I' m so new at this blogging thing, thanks for your encouraging words. Wanted to blog for years and really am surprised at myself for actually doing it. Just love it. are you a blogger?

Melinda: I love your blog as well, keep it up! And to answer your question, yes, I do use faux plants in my house...The key is to use them sparingly, like you have..too many people go overboard with them, then it gets real tacky, real fast! stop down to my office sometime!

Okay. Here's my dirty little secret. I am a florist and I have some fake flowers at my house. But, I have amazing fake flowers though. Think Pottery Barn.In the winter my co-op apartment is too hot most of the time. In the summer it's too hot during the day when I'm not home to put on the air conditioner. Yes, I do have fresh flowers from time to time. It is important to use them sparingly and keep them dusted. LOL Melinda, think yours look great. Love the faux dog too! P.S. Love your joyful blog banner.

Melinda said...

Mimi, So glad to hear that as a florist, you approve! Love to find "the look for less" and plan on making it a regular in my blog. Can't take any credit for the banner, my 25 year old daughter designed it for me! Thanks for checking in!
