I am a P.O.O.P.I.E and proud 🙂
I had to join in this, I really hate all things fake. I know it’s unreasonable and yes I know you can get flowers which look quite real etc….but I just can’t bear them! We just have bit of a thing in our family about growing our own seasonal flowers or buying them inexpensively from the local flower stall at the market.
Here are some real glorious Dahlia’s I bought for less than £2 last week
Now my MIL loves all things fake bless her, and the gaudier the better! But sadly I’ve never taken any photos of the awful fakery mainly because I thought it was best ignored. I buy her real flowers when we visit…to which she always says ‘Are these real?’, much to my husband’s amusement!
However my mother who I always thought had taste has outdone my MIL. When she was a child my great-grandmother died and left her this piece of historical P.O.O.P.I.E
Ollie and child as they are known in the family, have been in the attic for the last 20 years due to…..well not wanting to have two dead owls and a piece of fake tree in a big glass dome in the middle of the house for all to see. But recently Mum’s gotten him out and he’s being displayed proudly in the living room! I’m now worried that dried flowers and plastic roses aren’t far behind 🙂
But she has promised to consider selling him, and then I thankfully won’t inherit him – what do you do with a dead Owl? Thoughts please!
