Fakin' It


I'm fakin' it.

Didn't even know it until The Nester pointed it out.

She's helpful like that!

I'm joining a slew of other people who have strong feelings regarding the artificial fruit and flower. 

Please don't feel sorry for us. We are happy in our pretend world.

I have real flowers and  fresh what-nots so seldom that everyone thinks company is coming when I break down and buy the real stuff.

Here's a taste of my fake decorative touches (and after viewing some of these items more closely, I think I need to clean my house and maybe toss a thing or two out):

I bought this little cage for $1 at a garage sale.  It's the perfect place to stick my fall festivities:


And don't look too closely at this little darling --the dust will make you sneeze.


I need a tutorial on floral arranging 101, but here's my best shot:


This is actually a Christmas decoration I bought 75% off at Hallmark.  The red berries and pears make me happy, so it gets to stay out all year long!


Garage sale:  $2  (And it has feathers!)


The only thing fake about this picture is the foliage, because our love is the real thing!


As I searched my house for all the fakes, I started to turn introspective as the apron hanging in my kitchen began to mock me.  

I won't even discuss the look my drawer full of padded undergarments gave me. 

 But when this sign hanging in my living room waved it's finger at me:

I replied, "Don't judge me, I getting there."

To see more people fakin' it, visit The Nester, who makes faux look fabulous!

At least you are 'keepin it real' in the areas of life that really matter!

The Nester said...

faking it real good!

I love the part about the simplify sign giving you the finger--or something like that right!

ceekay said...

Yep, I have one of those simplifys too....it doesn't work. My excuse? I think the "stuff" self multiples when I am away!

I have sworn off the yard sales until every thing from my last three weeks have found a place. :) Yep...simplify...haven't looked that up in the dictionary yet.

Your fakes are so nice they could almost be faux!
Loved your post! Nancy

I bought a Simplify t-shirt, but I think what I really need is a Simplify billboard.

And thanks for "keeping it real" about the dust!

Cathy said...

I'm so happy someone else feels guilt walking by their "simplify" sign! (a friend bought the same big black "simplify" rooster sign as me and finally spraypainted out the word "simplify")!

Everything looks great, I wish I could simplify my life, but I don't see that happening anytime soon ;)

Krista ~ Bits and pieces said...

Hooked on Houses said...

You are so funny. You always make me laugh. I think a lot of us could use that Simplify! sign. -Julia :-)

Valarie said...

I bought some fake fruit the other day, so I could fake it. :) Of course I have not had time to fake it and they are still in the bag faking it there. :)

Meghan said...

I think they are all great!
My fav is your red basket with the gigundo sunflower on it.
Love it!

Jen r. said...

Love your colors and the one next to the black cabinets!

Shane said...

Ohhh, I love your garage sale find!

chickadee said...

very cute stuff!

Lettie said...

Oh come on...padded bras aren't fake, they just help put things back where they're supposed to be!

Thanks for the laugh!

Tammy said...

Okay, I thought we were just gonna talk flowers and fruits, but you put a whole new spin on this party!

Queen Bean said...

Ooh that urn is awesome. Deana

Muthering Heights said...

I like all the fake stuff. At my house, real plants die young, so we fake it too!

Happy Mommy said...

I love the fake stuff! I have fake stuff everywhere!
I am feeling better and able to get out of bed today, glad to read some blogs!
If I had a laptop I might have halfway enjoyed the bed rest!

Have a nice week!
