Last weekend I was dropping off the trash on my way out to run errands, when I came across this...
just sitting next to the Dumpster!
At about 7 feet tall, this faux tree probably retails for about $100. (That's just a guess, but faux plants aren't cheap. I usually buy mine from Goodwill.)
What a find! Somehow, I managed to cram it into the back seat of my sedan car (with the top hanging out the window) to get it home. I did end up ripping off a branch trying to get it out of the car (where you can see a gap in the middle), but it's not a huge deal.
We gave the extra branch to the cats to play in, so everyone's happy!
