I tried to find a picture of our living room with our BIG fake tree but I couldn’t find any evidence. This was the best I could do. Do you see it all the way in the back left corner?
When Christmas rolls around the fake tree goes out in the garage and the fake Christmas tree comes in. The old switcharoo, one fake tree for another. The decor Gods would have a heart attack. This year I really didn’t want to bring our “everyday” fake tree back in so I pulled some things out of a closet and came up with this…….
There are all things I already owned. I pulled the lamp from our bedroom which we really were not using. The chair was a hand me down from my Mom. The black and gold frame was an old GW purchase, black and white prints and frames were also a old GW purchase, plates you guessed it, an old GW purchase. We’ve had the little rug forever and I never want to put it down. It’s just to pretty to be stepped all over. The pillow was yet again an old GW purchase, the red blanket was a house warming gift from my cousin (5 years ago), and the basket use to be next to our couch.
I just love these photos. I knew when I saw them at GW that I would find a good use for them. I think they were $1.99 each.
I took a little black paint and dirtied up the frame. It was bright gold before. There is a funny story behind these plates but I’ll share that on a later date.
Remember before when I said I was sort of following the no fake plant rule? Well I still have these guys and I don’t plan on getting rid of them. Take that Décor Gods whoever you may be!
