Fake Flowers To The Rescue!

You all know how much I enjoy gardening.  

Filling my home with fresh clipping from the garden is something that is hard to give up over the winter months.

Spring fever and the craving for fresh flowers has hit me head on the last couple days.

But I've resisted . . . mostly because those pretty petals cost a pretty penny this time of the year if you'd like anything other than stock flowers from the super market.

On a quick trip to JoAnne's the other day to pick up some thread, I just so happened to find myself drawn to the faux flower aisle like I was on autopilot or something.

It was there that I found these beautiful fake Peonies.

Seeing as Peonies are a springtime favorite of mine, I was giddy with delight at how life-like they seemed.

I picked up two bunches of white and two bunches of pink, plus a few bunches of fake boxwood branches.

I could hardly get home fast enough to arrange them in a pretty dish for the dining room table.  

I only had enough time to arrange the white Peonies before the kids arrived home from school, but soon I'll have the pink ones somewhere in my house too!

For now, 
the fake version of the originals are doing a fabulous job of keeping me content!

Thank goodness!

Bye now, 


  1. They are so pretty! I would've thought they were real if you wouldn't have told us!

  2. Lovely! You know Shelia at Notes Songs blog, she always says "I love my fauxs and my fauxs love me!" They're a great substitute when you can't get the real thing.

  3. Very pretty, Robin! I know the feeling...I have some very pretty faux daffodils out right now...

  4. Your little arrangement is very pretty, Robin! No one would know they were fake unless they were told.

  5. I thought they were real too. Looks great on your table, enjoy it!!

  6. They are so pretty in your lovely compote! A nice way to brighten up a winter day!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
