While I've been on this decorating jag the last few days, ....weeks, ....months, ....OK, really since we moved here in March - I've been traveling around the entire blog world to find decorating blogs to inspire me (and make me feel better about my own addiction.)
There are some major, gorgeous, upscale decorating blogs out there, only I could never duplicate any of their ideas ($$$$$)- so I started looking at regular ol' blogs and I found the Nesting Place (actually...I think my Blog Researcher, Jodi, found it for me. It's so great to have friends to do all those small, pesky, time consuming, details of life for you, isn't it? :) I don't deserve her, I really don't!)
So, today on the Nesting Place, readers have the unique opportunity to be a P.O.O.P.I.E. - (that would be, People Opposing Objectionable Pretend Plants In the Environment). Get your minds out of the toilet, people!
The Nester wants us to leave a link to a post that contains pictures of artificial or real flowers. She's on some kind of campaign against tacky looking artificial flowers. (See, the problem with that is the people who actually have the tacky looking flowers...they don't know it. They think plastic looks good. And real.)
So, even though I'm sorry to say I think her campaign is a lost cause, - I just happen to have 100 or so pictures of my house ready to show (off). So, I'm game.
Go to her blog to see lots more P.O.O.P.I.E. (I'm telling you, I completely and totally crack myself up on a regular basis. I feel like I'm in jr. high again. I really do!)
Can you tell which of the following plants are real - and which are not?
If you got it right, you should have found 4 real and 6 incredibly realistic looking, very tasteful, yet "simulated" (as opposed to fake, bogus, or artificial and tacky)plants and flowers.
And because I know you can't get enough of these....Here are some updated pictures of our sextuplets. (Remember, one - or two or three- of these could be yours in a few weeks!)
