It's a P.O.O.P.I.E. Party

That's right, I said a P.O.O.P.I.E. party!

What's a P.O.O.P.I.E. party you ask? It's where "People Opposing Objectionable Pretend plants in the Environment" come together and link up to show how fake plants have been used in their homes.

At a P.O.O.P.I.E. party you see the good, the bad, and the ugly of using fake greenery to decorate. Unfortunately it has come to my attention that I have way too many of the bad and the ugly in my house - a situation that caused hives to break out across my body and impacted my ability to breathe correctly - but I'm good now!

The party is being hosted over at Nesting Place so head over and check out all the P.O.O.P.I.E.s (you might find that you're one too!)

I joined the party after I dropped in (aka: "blog stalked") the Nesting Place and visited the sites of many other P.O.O.P.I.E.s, where I saw many people bravely make their fake plant decorating ideas available for public comment.

As I was zipping in and out of blogs, I decided to get up and take a tour of my own home. I began with great confidence that I had surely not committed the fake plant faux pas that has been the topic of debate.

Of course, through the lens of the camera, my sight became much more clear (that ALWAYS happens!) and my confidence level began to wax cold, no wait... my confidence level was gone. Clearly my ability to use fake plants appropriately is a bit shaky. See for yourself (scroll over each picture for my commentary)...

And now... some better choices (at least I think so):

These examples follow the rules of being simple and using things that are real. Thus the look is much better.

I definitely see some decor changes coming soon. But now I wonder... what to do with all that greenery that's coming down...

4 Cheers (not Jeers!):

This is the funniest thing I have read in a long time (since Jenny's 'boot' story). I love your commentary - hilarious!

Speaking of decor... when we gonna paint your kitchen?

I realy really love that your post actually says, "I'm a POOPIE!" This is classic, and I want to frame it and put it on your wall. :) And thus we ARE related, if ya know what I mean...

You did a slide show! Love the "why do i have this?"

RoBiN said...

Uh-huh....see??? We all have the WHY DO I HAVE THIS plant somewhere in our home! I was just overwhelmed by all my POOPIE! LOL!

I love the Screen and your comment was just wonderful...TOTALLY UNNECESSARY! Loved the "creeping" vine across the cornice and saying DEFINITELY COMING DOWN!

I loved everything!
