I'm not a huge fan of fake flowers because most of them look so, well, fake. I do like the color and they're more palatable if I mix them heavily with nice fake and dried foliage.
I had this rather wimpy forsythia wreath that didn't do it for me. Pretty color but I like it much better now.
I added LOTS of good looking fake statice and some other fake foliage and dried kitty willows. (I know what they're called, but those are google hits that I can do without. Let's not go there m'kay?)
So full, fluffy and fabulous! She looks so real; I could sneeze.
I have to give a little shout-out to the girls who made my ping-pong ball lemonhead wreath. Some of you told me about it. Some of you didn't and I found you anyway. I found Laurie from Gillmore West, Cassie from Ames Castle, Lindsay from Passenger Seat Kind of Gal, and Lemon Annie wrote about it. Anyone else? I'd love to see it!
My favorite, though, is the heartbreaking lemonhead wreath story from Jennifer at The Magic Brush. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. So I did both. I adore you, Jennifer, for posting about this!!!!
Did you know that Melissa from The Inspired Room is giving all of us procrastinators a deadline with her Procrastinator Party? This is just the nudge I need to get moving on a project that I've had planned for months.
I have big plans for this $15 Goodwill headboard. Now I'm committed. I have two weeks to get it done or Melissa will fly to Pennsylvania and kick my tail.
