I just got slapped by Captain Obvious

Do you ever have moments where you are just like,

“Dur! Wow, I can’t believe I didn’t think of that. It just seems so obvious.”


Well, unfortunately for Mrs Oblivious over here, I have these moments all.the.time.

Que Captain Obvious here.


Three bunches of leaves stuck in a round floral foam thing.

Why oh why have I never even thought of this?

Do you realize how many times I’ve put ivy and plants above my cabinets and bent them all over the place to get them to stay in a certain position?

More times than I’d like to admit, thankyouverymuch.

I found this pre-made floral bunch at Goodwill. The second I saw it, I was like, “OMG wow, could there even be a more obvious solution?”

Five seconds later (the amount of time it took to drag a chair over and climb on the counter)…


… I have perfectly positioned bunches of leaves.

Sometimes I wonder how I even manage to function in this world walking around with my head in a bubble.

Living in my own oblivious universe is fun and all, but I sure feel like a dope sometimes.

  1. That is because your mind is so busy being creative & thinking up tons of other nifty, nobody thought of this before ideas! (at least that is what I tell myself) Bravo, it looks great above the cabinets!

  2. yep, I found some fake spider plants (some folks call them airplane plants or Mala Madres) and stuck them in some foam in a hanging basket on the back porch- in direct line of sight from the diningroom table. My mom and a visitor both asked for cuttings and I had to admit the plants were *faux*.

  3. Well slap me silly too, I didn’t see that one coming.
    I would probably have used the old stand in crumpled newspaper which tends to wilt over time allowing the spikes to wilt as well.

    THANKS for the new idea, I’m putting the newspaper out for the recycling!

  4. Wow, those look fabulous for fakes. Thanks for that tip. I sure can use it for the top of my cabinets that I’m still contemplating how to decorate up there.

  5. LOL! Now you got me scratching my head and saying “DUH!” Great idea:)

  6. I saw the plate sitting on your counter and I just have to say “Hook ’em!”

  7. I feel you pain! I too feel like I have spent far too long under some rock! Ha!

  8. All I can say about that is “HECK YEAH” lol..
