artificially yours {bloomin’ lovely}…

as the offspring of gardening aficionados, never did i think the day would dawn when faux flowers would darken my doorstep flourish in my very own home… they always seemed a little too, errr, “fake” for my liking…

i’ve always much preferred mother nature’s own best-in-show to keep me on track with the seasons…  be it a sprig of blossom, or a sweetly-scented hyacinth, a posy of peonies or a heady hydrangea bloom… {and believe me, i’m extraordinarily well acquainted with them all in equal measure… i’m a little like the imelda marcos of the flower world!}

but just lately, i must confess, i’m being more than a little won over…

behold… my latest botanical obsession, gorgeous “blousy” blooms from the atelier of none other than “the chanel of faux flowers” herself, ms abigail ahern… lush or what!  {they sure don’t make these artificial offerings like they use to… praise be!}

and, as it happens, they’re exactly what i didn’t even know this little corner of my home needed… {until all at once it was obvious what had been missing all along}

even up close these little head turners don’t disappoint… {& the drool-worthy berry tones are making me wanna click my heels 3 times & banish spring’s pastel palettes to oblivion}

have no fear, my local florist won’t be going out of business any time soon, but… i’ll be darned if i don’t invite a few more of these buxom blossoms to party at my pad real soonish…

faux or fresh, i think you’re all bloomin’ lovely!
