SCARY!

Gold tree anyone????

I saw this in the spring time and remembered the Pottery Barn trees from last Halloween that were around $59. Isn't that SCARY????????? Forget ghosts and goblins, I say scary is overpriced spooky trees. :)

Coat gold $2.92 Goodwill tree with some black paint and voila...you have your own
spooky tree without the scary price.

I really would like to meet the person that would pay that much for a tree at PB, but I guess to each his own. Yikes. Maybe they don't know about spray paint.

Anyway, I love your tree. Fantastic and thoroughly scary, at an unscary price.

Hey Lady, you made a haul...I have seen them different colors for different holidays..but the black for Halloween is the "bestest" of all. I know, not proper english probably, but that means it is the top of the line. Looks just perfect for the occasion with the combo of black and white.

Enjoy your weekend!

Oh, that evil PB and their cute overpriced stuff! What a lucky find at Goodwill (I never find anything good there), and it turned out spooktacular!

What a lucky find! I'm envious! I have been wanting one but won't pay big bucks either, so this year I'm trying the paper bag trees. Do you think I can sell them for $59? (JK)

I'm jealous of your thrifty find! I love to 'outsmart' PB.
