I read a posting this week from BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH. She spoke about removing her faux/silk greenery arrangement that was placed above her armoire to hide the dreaded sound equipment. So then I realized how many silk floral arrangements and greenery that I have. I love my silk arrangements that add so much color and texture to my decor, but is it time to lose them? It’s not like they are, for lack of a better word, “cheesy”..they are for the most part, NDI quality silks. So, I will leave it to you to help me decide: LOVE IT…OR LOSE IT!!!
On my weekly trip to Trader Joe’s yesterday, something spoke to me…Ditch the fakes and buy me..the real ones!! So I bought an orchid!.
Better? I replaced a silk floral arrangement with this REAL orchid from Trader Joe’s.
After I returned home from a long afternoon of my food shopping errands, my hubby and I drove to the car dealership to drop off one of our cars for service. So, not really wanting to cook when I got home, we stopped for a quick bite at Chick-Fil-A….When we sat down, there was another message speaking to me…fresh flowers!..There were fresh yellow roses on each table at Chick-Fil-A. They always have fresh flowers on their tables..So was it another sign to ditch the fakes?
A silk orchid arrangement in the master bath. I really like it, but do you? Love it or lose it?
A planter filled with ferns..I really think they look life-like…Love it or lose it?
A large decorative vase filled with silk greenery and orchids. Have always loved this arrangement, but should I let go?
A Christmas tablescape in the guest room. A vase filled with willow branches and hints of green buds. I love the height and texture it adds to the space, but do you? Should I love it, or lose it..I oh so love it!
Depending on my mood, this arrangement seems to flip between the dining room table and then back to the table in the same room that is in the bay window area (hopefully soon to be a window seat there!). The arrangement is in a very special porcelain container with silk florals and greenery.
A small arrangement to take the focus off the fireplace switch. Mostly greenery in a porcelain cachepot. So should I leave the cachepot empty?
Silk greenery and some flowers in an antique transferware double handled vase. It is somewhat tall, so it sits on the floor next to the dining room hutch. Love it or let it go? Well, I mean just the florals!
My faux topiary. I use the pair of them in various vignettes throughout the house. I am thinking about painting the container white..I really think I am not going to lose this one!
I have several more silk arrangements, but I want so show you that I have some real ones too…These are just a few..I mix them in the the “fake”..
The above orchid was a gift from a friend for my birthday..so beautiful and happy in that place. So you have seen “both sides” of the argument..What say you? LOVE IT OR LOSE IT???
