When it comes to saving money on a project, I have very little shame. I will sacrifice style a little if I think the monetary savings is worth it. So, when I saw a preserved boxwood topiary on a Joss & Main event that looked strikingly similar to the one Kristen and I made, I was thrilled. Although the topiary from J & M is made from real preserved boxwood and ours was made from plastic. Big deal. I think ours looks just as good and that would have saved us a whopping $20! That's half price!
