I have an issue with fake plants and flowers, I shouldn't, I should love them because I can't keep anything alive. I rather prefer real plants and flowers but I did not inherit a green thumb from my grandmother (Botanist at the University of Kentucky) or my mother who has a real lemon tree and dozens of orchids that bloom andrebloom! She's like the orchid wisperer.
Now that I have kept my herb garden alive for almost the entire summer I want to take on some of these Fiddle Leaf Fig trees I've been obsessing over. I looked everywhere for them and just happened to stubble across some at Coach in the mall... of all places. So I now have the contact for the Coach tree lady :)
I'm so close to ordering one ....or two, it will be ther perfect excuse to move the old FAKE trees out of the house to maybe the basement (or the trash)
I love these in pairs, need two for one on each side of the couch seperating the living room and the kitchen
Love these with orchids
And I love anything with with Blue and White LOVE!
The days of 100 degrees and humidity are gone (for now) and it's the first day in a long time it's started to feel like Fall is on it's way. And nothing will add a touch of fall like a big warm fall wreath to our front door. After lots of tips from Pinterest, here's my first attempt at making a wreath EVER!
Stocked up on some great fall follage and florals at Hobby Lobby!
This was a great tip from Crafty Sisters, double up on your grapevine wreaths to make it fuller. Who doesn't love a big fat wreath!
Get some wire and bind them together. Use this wire to secure the follage to the wreath too
I used the larger pieced with pumpkins and pine cones first, cut up the leafs and tucked them in to fill in the gaps and finsihed with lots up berries then fluffed and fluffed and fluffed
We went to Las Vegas to check out a potential wedding venue (no ring just talks of what might happen....) Rob is all about the idea of Vegas and I happened to find a few promising pictures on Pinterest
Well, Vegas you are perfect for a bachelorette party but for my big day I don't think so, the astro turf, giant Ceasar statues, techno music from the pool in the background..... not what I had in mind.
After the let down of the venues ( I should have seen this coming) SUPRISE! Celine Dion Tickets at Ceasars!!
I cried, I laughed, we danced.....she is amazing and worth every penny and minute! It's All Coming Back to Me Now, The Titanic Theme Song, and some River Deep and Moutian High LOVE!!

And what would a trip to Las Vegas be without a trip down Fairmont Street
