He’ll notice..He helped me arrange them. He said, “I don’t think you like them. You just like the thought.” I lied through my teeth because he looked hurt.
No, you (or most of us) wouldn't go out and buy these, but he did, and he thought he was doing something special (tell him to quit taking talk radio advice!) but he was clearly hoping to please you. Display them. Don't hurt his feelings by hiding them away. It's just a house. His feelings are more important than decor. And it's better than having to wear in public some ugly piece of clothing that he buys for you. I think he was sweet, roses and note, both.
OMG. I recently got THE SAME FLOWERS. I clicked this thread thinking to myself, “Ohhh, she thinks her husband can find the strangest, tackiest gifts....just wait.
I laughed so hard seeing that you got victimized by the same flower. Mine came in a giant display dome with a lid, making it an even larger gift to try to store.
Ah yes I received a few tacky gifts from my ex-MIL but the thought was genuinely there so I kept them for years and slowly managed to "lose them in a house move"...
Oh this thread is too funny, I've laughed until my stomach hurts.
Its a tie between the black gold-dipped rose and shark-puking-a-rainbow tank top.
Another thought..How am I supposed to clean them? They’re going to get dusty...They are supposed to be real flowers that were preserved. I don’t think I can wash them under water. The only thing I can think of is to use an artist brush..
