Faking It

In my 5 years of blogging, I have been asked to write a sponsored post a few times, but never for something that I felt was authentic for me or my style.

When I was contacted by a representative of  PermaLeaf®, I was definitely interested in reviewing their products.

I never thought I would be interested in faux products because I have a garden full of flowers and greenery to use year round.

But, through blogging, I have learned to appreciate the ease of using florals and greenery with no upkeep.

Faux flowers hanging on the front door don't need to be watered

and faux flowers on my old door mean I don't have to sweep up falling leaves and buds daily.

The timing was perfect because I had been thinking about buying a topiary and I found a double topiary.

The leaves fooled Steve into thinking they were real.

I chose topiaries that came in a set of two.

I like the red clay posts they came in, but I can never leave well enough alone.

I slapped on some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - Lulu is wondering why I felt the need to add words.

And I have to say, "just for fun!"

The best thing about these topiaries is that I don't have to worry about them dying while we are away

and we are traveling a lot to visit Andrew, the new love of our life.

So, if you need to "fake it" like me, I suggest looking into PermaLeaf® for the wide variety of faux greenery and silk product.

I received the topiaries in exchange for my honest review of the products.

If you are interested in reviewing a PermaLeaf® product, please comment and I will direct you to the representative.
