P.O.O.P.I.E.



Say what?

Yep, you read it right. I said P.O.O.P.I.E. It's an acronym created by the awesomely talented Nester that stands for People Opposing Objectionable Pretend plants In the Environment. Whew...what a mouthful! And, since I don't know how to do a linky thing yet (Lori Anne...we're gonna have to work on that!), you can see her blog at nestingplacenc.blogspot.com. You are supposed to post pics of fake plants/flowers that you have around the house and see if people think they are worthy of sticking around or not. I'm arriving fashionably late, because this thing started yesterday. But, better late than never, right? Here are my lovelies, scattered throughout the house.

Here is the one that is in my entryway. I found it at a garage sale, vase and all, for a whopping 25 cents. Truth be told, I bought it for the vase, but I never did anything with it. I think my mom thinks it looks like it belongs to an 80 year old and not a 32 year old, but whatev. I did buy it from an 80 year old-ish woman, though. :) What do you think? Should I spray paint that vase black or leave it green to match the dining room?



Ok, here's another that is on my baker's rack in the kitchen. It's a fruit and flower topiary that I got at a home consignment shop here in town. I only paid $4.00 for it. It's one of those things that looks better from a distance than up close...so don't be gettin' too close, ya hear? :) I like it. I'm keeping it!


Welp, an angry almost 2 year old has now risen early from her nap, and M's school bus will be here any minute. Consider this post to be continued...

Love, K
