Caption This: Tacky Decor

We’ll get to the dead animals in a minute. Let’s start with the um, flowers and produce. My thinking with cabin and beach house decor, in general, is that it is bad for a reason. So you don’t steal it. Right? Because aesthetically, there simply cannot be another function… except maybe fashion. High fashion.

Here is the flower centerpiece on the coffee table. There might be a picture of the same flowers arranged in such a way that they look like a blanket covering up a certain inebriated barmaid (sort of ike she is lying in a field of fake flowers?), but we will protect the innocent. In the background, three Smartini barmaids chat with each other via Google Talk.


And then, here is the kitchen table centerpiece, a garland made of fake, miniature squash that was quickly transformed into a necklace… and then banished to the top of the cabinets, where it laid low for the rest of the weekend.




Should I have worn it out to dinner? And what do you think of my “hat.”              

2 tips left at the bar:

The innocent appreciates your kindness in refraining from posting the field of fake flowers photo. Also, the innocent appreciates another barmaid letting her delete a photo of herself wearing the gourd scarf. It was not pretty, my friends, NOT PRETTY AT ALL.

Come on, it was gourd-geous!

You know I had to go there.
