Faking It


Many moons ago, all fake plants were removed from our house.
Well actually, The Nester told us to remove all the old dusty
things and I did! 
Ever since then I've stuck my nose up in the air
about most faux plants.

The other day I was at a girlfriend's house and she had some really pretty faux flowers that definitely caught my eye here in the dead of winter.  
So when we went to Canton she helped me find these little pretties.


I guess they are dogwood blooms. I'm sticking with that. :)
Whatever they are, they are beautiful and just right for this spot
right now. The aqua vase has been hidden in a bathroom upstairs.
I'm happy to have it out here in the entry for awhile.



Ann, the flowers were found at The Cotton Shed in Downtown Canton. 

So here's the lesson today - copy your girlfriends. 

Have a great day!!

Hi Stacey! I love your pretty fauxs. Now me, I love these puppies and have them all over the place and change them out occasionally. Hope you're continuing to heal and feel better.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Some "faux" flowers and greenery are really beautiful. I have a few and am so glad that I cannot kill them, as I've done with some of the real things! Hope this finds you feeling well.

Your flowers look real! So pretty in that vase.

So here's one more lesson today - read creative blogs.

I am not convinced we should get rid of all faux plants. I got rid of most, cleaned ALL and, well, it's winter and we need the look don't we? Every room should have some green.

Most of our rooms have some real plants but some are too dark so occassionally I get out pretty faux ones I keep stashed for such an occasion.

I ADORE your new one, and yes, it is very nice to copy great ideas. Glad your friends "helped" you brighten up your world a little bit.

BTW- love love love that bird plate you have standing up, that's AWESOME!

Stacey - That's a bright spot in this dreary old weather. Looks great!

Personally, I like the look of something living, even if it's faux!! :) Very pretty vignette!

The Gathering Place said...

I still have a few fake vines around I confess, but I like the flowers you found. I forget to water the real ones.
Any advice on what I need to do to not show up as no reply blogger?

Charming Lucy said...

I once had a ton of artificial plants too. They just collected dust! Now I have a little greenery just for color. I love these dogwood branches. They just look like spring(: Susan

Gina said...

Sometimes you just need a little greenery. These look so pretty & complement the aqua vase so nicely.

Julie Lilacs and Longhorns said...

love those faux flowers!! so pretty, Stacey and love that vase, too!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

What pretty delicate flowers and leaves. I like silk flowers...but only a few and not the big colorful blooms. But that might change. lol If something catches my eye, I might add it to my home. I might even copy YOU! Hugs!

Ann said...

Before I spend days walking all over Canton looking for these could you give me some general idea where you found them? Building? Thanks! They are probably the most realistic I've seen in a while.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

So pretty Stacey...love that pretty lamp and seagrass shade too!

debi said...

Love those dainty little flowers, and the vase that gathers them so beautifully!


Hugs!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

You know, I've been noticing lately that they're starting to make very realistic faux flowers now days. Love yours and that vase is perfect for them!

Kathleen Grace said...

Faux flowers today aren't the same as the plastic flowers our mothers and grandmothers used! If you hadn't told me I probably wouldn't have even noticed they weren't real! They look beautiful, and it all comes down to what YOU love. You have great taste Stacey, trust it :>)

JG said...

I stopped in to get some TX sunshine on a snowy day, Stacey! :) What a pretty arrangement! Looks like Spring. I like faux plants & make silk flower arrangements for all seasons.

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Your flowers look lovely. Faux and silk flowers have come a long way and I have say, Veranda magazine also uses them...

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

Very pretty! I always use fake flowers - never stopped. Even certain ones from the dollar tree look pretty good. I think that fake flowers today are not the same as fake flowers years ago.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Stacey, lovely little blossoms and they certainly warm up our cold day. We went from 80 to freezing here in Dallas!! But the good news is back to near 80 this weekend, I hope!!
Have a wonderful day dear one~

Dee said...

I don't have much of a green thumb so I'm very familiar with faux flowers. I really love your flowers, too, and they look very pretty in that lovely vase... :)

Maria Elena said...

Your flowers are beautiful. They look real!

April said...

I could use a sprig or two of something just like that in several places in my home. Looks just perfect to me! Hope you're continuing to improve and feeling stronger every day!

Kim said...

I said goodbye to faux years ago, Stacey, just like you. I only used them on the front door and one wreath in my kitchen. However, this past year, they have crept back into my house...twice! Yours look real!

Just a little something from Judy said...

The flowers look real, and when they do, it always adds to a décor. Yours look so good in that vase, and I especially like the mirror that you have with it. It offers a warm welcome.

Deserae said...

Your new flowers are very pretty!!! I would have never known they weren't real if you hadn't pointed it out :o)
~Des

Brandi said...

Your flowers look beautiful. I was convinced they were real.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love it, Stacey! The blooms go so well with your bird plate, too. It is like a tease of Spring for us getting snow. : ) I have to have faux plants here. Ever since we moved my indoor green thumb has turned black.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

They look REAL! :)

Elizabeth said...

Very nice !

Jenniffer said...

Those are lovely! And I adore this mirrors!!

Susan Durrett said...

Faux or not - they are beautiful! A touch of Spring is just right for this time of year. Oh...and that basket shade.....LOVE!!! Susan@simplystonecreek

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Those are very pretty and real looking! Love the little song bird plate too!

Michelle said...

You are so funny! I love your comments about "sticking your nose up in the air" and "copying your girlfriends!" Your faux flowers are lovely. I have good faux mixed with a few real here and there. The faux greens/flowers have gotten so realistic the past few years that it's hard to pass them up for the winter.
