I was astounded at the increase in prices
of faux greenery and florals! ! !
|Top of Entertainment Center Christmas 2011!|
Most of my past faux greenery
was purchased when employed at a local
Antique and Home Decor Shop.
Not only did we carry the finest brands,
but I received a generous employee discount!!!

When you factor in my allergies
to all evergreens. . .
allergies + discount =
l o t s of faux greenery On Crooked Creek! ! !

I shared with "Mr. Ed" my two faux greenery purchases.
He was even more shocked at the retail price than I!
Needing a better solution for storing my long stem fauxs,
I ask "Mr. Ed" to design and make a Storage Solution!

After he received my approval of his design,
he was off to the garage to tackle the task at hand.
Ladies, I'm telling you, "The man can build a n y t h i n g"! ! !

keeps it light and bright
tying this Storage Solution into the existing decor.
Once the paint dried,
I began filling each divider with long florals!
First, those from Spring. . .
then, those from Summer. . .
add white peonies and some icy branches for Winter. . .
now I have "the perfect" Storage Solution
for my long faux floral stems!!!

Having this storage solution
to elevate and preserve my faux florals,
On Crooked Creek ~ hopefully ~
will lower the necessity to make frequent purchases.
Until next time. . .
