The reason why I never became a florist...

Today I shoved a pick from the Dollar Tree into this fake plant and I am calling it a "fall decoration" on my coffee table....
Proof positive why I would never had been successful as a florist!

Sharing this little flaw of mine with Thrifty Thursday


  1. Hey it looks great!! And you are a florist. Florist play with florals .....and that is just what you did.

  2. I love it! I think it looks great! Angie xo

  3. Not a thing wrong with this...I don't have one, single, solitary fall thing yet so you are waaay ahead of me.:)

    Thanks so much for the link to black and white checks..can't wait to go see..just wanted to thank you first.
    xo bj

  4. OMGosh, woman...I see where you do MC knockoffs. I am so so in love with MC..I only have a very few pieces and I'm pretty sure they will go to my grave with me so I can enjoy them in Heaven forever and ever..amen!! Now, if I had a clue where to get that tissue paper, I might just try making something. Since I don't have a crafting bone in my entire body, I am sure I would screw it up...but you have given me inspiration to want to try it....

    I can't find the black and whites...the link you gave me isn't working. gonna try again as I am OLDEN and tend to misread somtimes. That's my story and I'm stickin' with it.:)
    I can't wait to go back and see more of your posts. You are, indeed, a woman after my own heart and here you have black and white, even on your pretty blog.And, I am your newest follower..whew..I said all that without taking a breath....

  5. I tried again and still can't get the page to pull up.
    I also want to email you a pic of a table Mr. Sweet did for me. And, my kitchen backsplash he also did for me. I am a true lover of black and white..checks, especially.:)


    this link will show you my b&w table...
    Old Singer machine base and he used the left over tiles from the kitchen back splash..
    Just thought you might like to do something like this, too.:)
    I've got lots more b&w..wish we could visit each others house and see all our goodies...:)

  7. It looks much better than my fall mistreatment! I have a cute pumpkin pitcher that I stuck some random yard dried(dead) herbs and ivy in. It didn't look too bad until the cat ate most of it......could it have been the dried catnip????

  8. I have actually taken a class in floral design and still, I have the toughest time. I shove picks too :)
