P.O.O.P.I.E

People Opposing Objectionable Pretend plants in the Environment! Okay folks it's been a week....which is way too long. Schooling 3 1/2 is a bit daunting at times. My other excuse.....I've been freaking out about lice for over a week. No, I didn't have it (this time around), but I've scratched myself raw over it!

On to P.O.O.P.I.E.! Over at Nestor's she's done a short series on what's a good fake and what's not (errr flowers that is). So after you take a peak at mine head over there and read hers and everyone else' poop (can I say that?), I mean blogs! Nesting Place is in my side bar if you need directions ( I wanted to put the button up, but have no clue).

These are my year round fakies.... Superman gave me the floral arrangement about 12 years ago when we couldn't afford flowers, who am I kidding....we still can't! I did change out the pedestal urn they came in.

My wonderful ivy on top of the cabinets. My chicks have always hated this look. Yes, there is dust...


On to fall fakies... I really like color! It's still 90 something degrees out, my flimsy excuse?


The chickadees really like this one. It looks pretty when its lit.



The corn is REAL!


Now on to the outside! Okay, lets remember that fall doesn't start here until December. No kidding! The humidity does go down a bit and we have evenings in the 60's in November. So we are faking it until the season makes it.

The front porch

My fake pumpkin. I repainted it this year. If this was real it would be GROSS in a couple of days. Yucko!

Yup. More Fakies.

I know REALLY tacky. I'm looking for some type of candle holder that has more of a presence.

So I would like to say that I'm a P.O.O.P.I.E. but I think I have a ways to go!

I wish I new how to do a go here type of thing. I mistreated my laundry room curtains!!

REAL corn? After all of those fakes the one thing real is the corn! That is so funny!

Bella Casa said...

Yours could pass for a northern house ready to welcome in the sweet crisp cool air of autumn. Oh how I wish we had that here, before the 2 days we get in December. Thanks for the visual imagery!

Oh I love all the fall decor! I wanted to get me some of the corn stuff...I can't find the real thing, so I guess I'll be fake! *smiles*

Oh How nice...I can empathize with the whole Fall decor having no oomph to it, since it is still warm here, too! I am gathering it, but NOT feeling it at all!

Thanks for the laugh I got when I read the caption for the FP arrangement, when you stated it looked great when lit...I must be reading too many POOPIE blogs, cuz I thought you meant when the arrangement was lit...literally! LOL! Maybe I need to "rest" awhile!
