Fall Inspiration and P.O.O.P.I.E.



I decided it would be fun to join the party over at the Nesting Place . . . and I am but first (and part of the party):

I was reading through LindaJanes site yesterday when I came accross this cute item - here.


I have one of those cloches!


And I have a bird nest thing with "faux-liage!" I can kill two birds with one stone...




So I take the faux twiggy items off the bottom . . .






I cram the birds nest, it was a little tight, and I was determined to make this happen, into the croche . . .




And waaa laaaaa! I have something new that did not cost a penny.

I now will find a clever spot to place this among some of my "faux birds" (not stuffed - glass, silver - not tacky . . . I hope . . . hmmm)



And yes I do have a few other "faux liage." It is funny, we never had any in the house growing up - it was all too fake. Some of the pieces I now have are actually from my mom. As I think about each room - I have more than I realize, but I only have these pictures right now.

So here goes:




This one I bought - there is cool pot it sits in - and yes, it is fake berries and well fake all around.

Then this one use to be in my office cubicle and now it is at my shop:





The big green plant is real . . .

Check out the list of P.O.O.P.I.E Post here -there are some oh so faux pics of ivy topped kitchen cabinets and then some really attractive arrangements and some very fallish arrangement.


Happy Day To All!!

Love it. I am all over this p/o/o/p/i/e thing. I can only keep them alive.

THe faux-liage is a very interesting way of saying that. I had not heard that before.

Thank you - I copied it from LindaJane - hehe

If I was good at decorating, yes I would like it! I know what I like, but never know how to get there, I am handicapped that way! I love the idea of being able to decorate!

I love how your bird/cloche turned out...it was so easy wasn't it!

I'm glad I could be of some inspiration to you...believe me, it doesn't happen very often. I'm just not that creative!
