THIS IS WHAT I DO WHEN SPRING HADN’T SPRUNG HERE IN MY NECK OF THE WOODS. I DIG OUT THE FAUX FLOWERS AND CREATE SOMETHING THAT FEELS LIKE SPRING!
Spring is still nowhere in sight here in Michigan but as of today most of the snow has melted. That must mean temperatures are climbing a little bit but still no signs of anything green. So a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do; head to the basement and dig out a few faux blooms from her flower bin.
Amongst my stash were forsythia blooms that are yellow and whatever these pink ones are. I opted for pink; it’s a color I never decorate with so I said what the heck I’d give it a go for a while. I recently noticed I seem to dress in the same colors I decorate with and pink is not one of my color choices. Without making a purchase I decided I’d use what I had. If you missed my kitchen lighting post you’ll have to pop over and see what I mean by my clothes match my home décor, LOL.
Anyway back to the flowers: I know for many of you faux are out of the question but they have come a long way over the years. I used to be able to spot a fake flower or plant a mile away but not now so many of them truly look real. So that’s my excuse for using them anyway.
Now with the snow gone I was able to clean up the yard after our roof issue of losing shingles during the windstorm. My first thought was to throw them all in the dumpster but I decided I’d better keep one as a color match. I’m sure the roof repair man will be happy he didn’t have to climb up there and peel one off to use for matching. I’m just hoping the same shingle color’s still made I certainly don’t want a roof with patches of different colored shingles. I’ll be raising a stink if that’s what the plan is.
I zoomed in on the number “32” I have a post coming up about decorating with numbers and thirty two is the one I use all over the cabin; it’s my firefighter son’s number. Whenever I find it in a thrift store or antique shop I snatch it up if the price is right. So tell me are you seeing signs of spring where you live yet? I love Michigan winters but I so ready to welcome Spring in!
