I'm a faker, a cheater. I'm embracing the faux.
I have succumbed.
Every March I wonder what to put on the front door and in the urns on the porch. The left over Christmas is just wrong and it is too early for flowers. I thought about maybe putting some glass gazing balls in these pots but I couldn't find the right color. Red or green looked like left over holiday, silver doesn't show up against the white house, and everything else had a garish edge. Then I saw these faux boxwoods. I know. I know. Fake is bad. Fake is tacky. So color me tacky. I am tired of spending all the money for real flowers in the early Spring to only have them look leggy and sickly by the 4th of July. Most years I am anxiously looking forward to Fall so I can buy some inexpensive Mums and look like I've got my Martha on. I'm over it. Yes, I'm a big pretender. I am embracing these faux boxwoods that I purchased on Amazon.
Say what you will, they are heavy and will not blow away. I don't have to water them and I don't have to be concerned about freeze warnings.
My solution to the March Decor Madness.
