Nothing like a good fake.

Ok, I admit it, I'm a fake flower lover.
Now You know.

All around My home in every room stashed away in favorite special vases You will find fakes.Not just any fakes though,I'm an expert at it by now and very picky.
These are just a few of them.It would seem silly to show You all of them.

I drape them as I please :)

I hot glue them to most crafts.
Every time I go to craft stores, home stores or even the Dollar Tree,I always check them out for My favorite colors  and then blend those into the season.I just don't have the time, energy or the money to keep changing real flowers.For some strange reason I even get more pleasure out of the fake or if You want class (faux).

So now You know.Still be My friend ....Please. Love You even if You like real flowers  ; )

some times you (I) can not afford flowers or keeping fresh alive for a long period of time. so fake is the totally the way to go. i remember once when i was young watching Oprah & she said that fresh was the way to go. i agree when you have millions of dollars to pay with. if not fresh is a simple & very easy way to go. cute times!! happy week.

Hi Auntie Denise,

What's wrong with liking fake flowers? They don't die, they always look bee-u-tee-ful, and it makes a cold, snowy day feel like spring is just around the corner.

I like the berries draped on your curio cabinet.

Heaps of Hugs,
Prudence ♥

Me too. I love them, they help to make the home homey and in the long run cost less than what it would take to bu real ones and attempt to keep them alive. LOL

I love fresh flowers when I can get them, but I must admit to be a closet fake flower lover as well!

Stephanie said...

Blessings

They are NOT fake flowers. They are faux flowers and instead of being made by God, they are made by man..and how wonderful is that. God would be proud, I know he would!

I like them both and having mostly silk flowers in my home! They last longer and you can get such realistic flowers now. Sweet hugs!

Denise said...

Hello my very real friend, love you bunches.

Denise they make faux flowers so well these days that most of the time you can't even tell they are fake. Love how you have yours arranged in your home. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I do remember coming by your blog on the GYB blog hop but i did not join because there is not a religious bone in my body. And was not sure i would be welcome here. Hugs! deb

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
