Wahoo! And we're playing it at my favorite place: Terrain. (I think that's the only place we ever play this?) I'm pretty mobile these days (relatively speaking), so my mom took me out so I could get an anniversary gift for Ron and to Terrain because I haven't been there in forever.
Let's get started:
|Problem: I hid the price tag to take the picture and now I don't remember how much this really is. The footed dish alone has to be $60-70. So everything combined ... hmmm ... I would say $128? I love that garden gate behind the fern.|
|We searched in vain for prices on these. My guess? $6 each. Aren't they cute? At least they all look really healthy.|
|They had a few of these big jade plants--really beautiful. Want to guess? If you guessed under $70, you're wrong.|
|Ok, this is to die for: A gorgeous fig tree. There were TWO of them. I hope I can train mine to take this shape--I like fig trees rather than fig bushes. I couldn't find a price and didn't care anyway. A girl can dream.|
|Ok, here's a fun one. Take a guess on that wide black cabinet on the bottom: $500? $750? no ...|
|The cabinet's $1,598! At that point, I started laughing and my mom got borderline annoyed: "Are you serious? This is a joke. REALLY?? COME ON!!" Ok, what about this little guy here with the succulents?|
|Or this pear-shaped guy in the middle? $20? $25? Come on now: $38. I won't lie, I really wanted one badly ...|
|I did get one ... but it's not from Terrain! I'll do a separate post and show you how I did three of these for a grand total of $21. Not kidding.|
|I saw this idea in the current copy of Sweet Paul magazine while I was there. I don't like the idea of plastic, but it's something to think about.|
In the meantime, I saw this little guy. If not for one of my favorite bloggers who has a real love for beetles, I would've been all "ewwww, gross! He's huge!!" rather than, "Oh, cool!" He was a lovely creamy beige color--about the size of a silver dollar. I hope he moved out of his spot since he was bound to get crushed by someone not watching their step.
In the parking lot, I noticed another fig actually planted in the the parking lot. Figs always remind me of California.
|They'll be ready to go in about six weeks ...|
