Cheesy Michael’s glittery faux florals + cedar boughs
I never return from the provinces without a pit stop at Michaels, one of the most wonderful places on earth. Case in point: Last time I was there I watched a high school employee help a grandmother pick out the perfect fake xmas tree for her retirement home porch. Michael’s brings generations together with help from permanent botanicals*!
* My favorite-ever industry term.
Plastic glittery bits? Not so bad in context!
Once, another Michaels shopper asked what I was doing with an armful of dollhouse furniture. I couldn’t explain Operation Dollhouse to her, so I stammered and told her they were for my granddaughter (!?!). My most recent visit was for wreath-making supplies, though I ended up with pretty much dozens of glitter-covered plastic leaves because they were all so hideously beautiful I couldn’t decide. Herein, some image of the glitter and greenery decking out our apartment these days.
