Sunday, June 5
You might be horrified with what I am about to write, or perhaps you will agree with me on this one…
What do you think of them?
(ENTER: your thoughts here)
Come on. What are the first thoughts that come pop into your head?
Well, if you are (were) like me, those exact same words that popped into your head surely popped into mine.
Let’s be honest here. Have you ever used fake flowers before?
Until recently, I had never dreamed of ever using artificial flowers. I thought that that the concept was awful.
Why the leap over the side? For me, I needed to have flowers out for an entire month that looked bright and fresh. I couldn’t be at the flower market everyday (nor could I afford them) nor constantly making sure that they looked perfect.
I was shocked by how realistic the flowers looked. Comment after comment of how beautiful the flowers were.
I have to say some people had no clue at all. People raved about them. They touched them and still thought that they were real?
Was it because they just looked THAT good?
Or was it that you wouldn’t expect that I would use fake flowers?
I have to say that I really loved it when people reached down for a smell and they would comment: “Oh, they smell so good”. It was hard to not want to laugh. Perhaps they really were some of the best fake flowers that I have ever seen? I never thought that I would be ever writing to this or admitting this secret.
Would you put fake flowers in your house? Or maybe you already do. Tell me why.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the topic.
I am not sure if this has officially converted me. I don’t think that I am ever going to give up my love of freshly cut flowers. Maybe I will use them again someday. It’s great to know that options out there exist.
It has been raining like mad here in San Francisco. So to brighten things up, I will gladly send one happy reader a bouquet of these lovely bright pink peonies.
Just leave a comment and tell me your thoughts.
One random winner will be selected on June 10th. Good luck!
