faux real


Can you imagine these are "faux" real?
My son came home with a bunch of friends and one boy asked if the fruit was "for real?"
My son replied, no, we eat faux fruit here, it is much tastier and never goes bad.
Gotta love teens!
Love to win these sunny silk "faux fleurs" to add to my kitchen.
They are created by these lovely ladies which this...

blogger posted so graciously posted about. Sophie Dahy is going to select a winner and you can select your favorite bunch with $300 to spend. How good is that?
Welcome to my kitchen which is a popular spot for our family as well as bunches of sunny flowers and friends. The cabinets are original, the floor is a silver laminate and the walls are bright green. A complete renovation is on the calendar for Spring 2010.
I plan to post all about it as it has been a long process to get to this point and all seems truly not "for real."

What pretty flowers I'd love to win. Your kitchen looks so pretty in the pic too. Will miss that space and sitting around you table but am looking forward to coffee at the new space too.

I love your kitchen, you made it work for you and the colors are so pretty! Can't wait to see it all new! This is so exciting!

Those flowers are beautiful, I am not a fan of faux - real, but I have to admit, they look gorgeous and I have seen some of their creations, divine!
I'll give it a try!

Teens, eh? Gotta lov 'em!

I love a kitchen renovation! Can't wait to see what you'll do. Although I must say, I love it now, just the way it is. Very cozy and inviting!

Love the faux fruit between two teens. I'm also loving the green in your kitchen too. I can't wait to see your new kitchen. Since the cabinets are original will you being doing something to salvage a door or two to bring into your new kitchen? xoxo

Your kitchen is cozy and I like that - especially the green apple wall color.
Teens say the darnest things, don't they? :)

Patricia, I was just taking a break from wreath making and found your post. You are so kind, and we greatly appreciate it. Good luck on your kitchen-I did it several years ago, and it wasn't easy. Cooking on a hotplate...
