Have you been to the Dollar Tree lately? I have and guess what I found? These cute little FAKE plants (that look real)!!!! What do you think...do they look real to you too? I'm lovin' the POP of GREEN that they have added here at my nest. If you need a POP of Green at your nest...stop in and pick up a couple of these THRIFTY goodies!!!
                                                 We are finally getting some
                                                    much needed rain...my
                                                      grass really needed
                                                        it, so I'm a happy
                                                          camper today,
                                                                 Linda
                                         Added this darling burlap bag and
                                                  she now lives here next
                                                          to my kitchen
                                                                sink.
                                                    
                                           Another burlap bag and this one
                                                      made her home here
                                                          on my mantel.
                   
                                       Now this one has a SPECIAL home here
                                                  on the NEW addition to my
                                                     NEST...I will be sharing
                                                   it next week at NTT...just
                                                   let me say...I LOVE IT!!!
                                       Small twig basket came from World Market,
                                       only $2.99...less 25%...another THRIFTY

I do love a touch of green in every room. They do look real and you have given each a special touch.

I'd never guess they were dollar store fakes. I love adding just a touch of green to every room, too. Thanks for sharing.

Those are so cute! I used to be good about stopping to see what was new at Dollar Tree but since we moved I kind of got out of the habit...maybe I need to stop by!

So cute. Normally I just like real plants...but yours look real. I have some fake ones in my laundry room that cheer me up...ha! just where I need cheering up. I just rinse them off if they look dusty.

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

I have some of these, Linda. They really do look real! I like how you used the burlap bag. I'm going to have to steal that idea!
Hugs!
Michelle

CAS said...

Those are totally cute! Guess I'd better swing by the $Store & then also pick up some more burlap to stitch up some little bags. Man, I can't believe how popular burlap has become. Love it!

Linda Chapman said...

I LOVE the $ store!
One of the little trees look like rosemary.
You sure made them look more like $$$$ trees than simply trees from the $ store!

Erin said...

Love your little plants, and the burlap is perfect...my friend is gifting me with some next week and I love this idea of yours!!!

Judy said...

I just saw those this morning at a Dollar Tree here in B'ham but (stupidly) didn't get any. I hope I can find them when I get back to Montgomery.

Let me know when you're coming to Lake Martin....do ya'll have a place there? My sister and I are doing our annual girl's weekend at her lake house there around the last weekend of April.

Courtenay@Signal Hill Interiors said...

I love these little plants. I bought one to try it out and now I'm definitely going back for more!

michelle said...

I saw those and was amazed at how real they looked! I love them and so glad that you picked some up. I love how you arranged them!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...
