Wordless Wednesday: You Got the Money, Honey...

Anyone remember that song? :)

Who says money doesn't grow on trees?
Origami Money Tree
Someone donated it to Hidden Lake Gardens in Tipton, MI.
& my son thought it was really cool. ;)

  1. That is AWESOME. I remember my dad got a money tree for something when I was a kid, but it was literally a plant with dollar bills just taped on. This one is NICE!

  18. My dad's side of the family used to do something similar for weddings; they had an old wire frame that was used and used until it finally fell apart.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I wish someone would donate one to me! Seriously, that is so cool! People always amaze me with their talents!

  44. Your son IS right. That is awesomely cool, and it will be kinda sad when they take it apart to collect the cash.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think it's really cool too!!!! So much effort and time spent on it!

  46. Man, if you have that what do you do? Keep it, or break it apart and spend it?

    ReplyDelete
  47. So money does grow on trees...you just have to be lucky enough to have one. That is the most unique tree I have ever laid eyes on!

    ReplyDelete
  48. That's really well done and it looks pretty too!

    in a rich man's world!

    ReplyDelete
  51. This looks so cool! My daughter would think she could have it because we always tell her Money doesn't Grow on Trees!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wow that is amazing. I wonder how long something like that takes to make.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Your son must have loved seeing that! How cute. Too bad it isn't real money, LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  54. What an awesome money tree! Maybe someone will make one for me! Haha, who am I kidding!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh wow what a newt tree. It looks it took a long time to make.

    ReplyDelete
  56. WOW that is amazing - it's so pretty as well. I wonder how long it took to put it all together. x

    ReplyDelete
  57. This is really creative. I think it would make a great gift for those kids who are graduating this Spring.

    ReplyDelete
  58. That is so awesome! I would love to learn how to actually make one! I can't say it would look at as good as that money tree, but it would be fun to try.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I could really use a money tree, I'd probably just pick it all apart slowly as I spend it.

    ReplyDelete
  60. How do I learn to grow these, lol?? Origami is such a neat art, someone was very talented with this tree!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'd love o make one so fun, but our money is plastic coated and the smallest bill is $5 sp that would be one expensive tree :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. My boy would be smart and say see mom, Money really does grow on trees. I love this idea

    ReplyDelete
  63. It's actually too perfectly put together to actually use any of the money!! And yes, I would love one of those!

    ReplyDelete
  64. What a great and craft thing to do. It's almost regrettable to take off the money from the tree.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Those are the trees that we are dreaming to grow in our own yard!

    ReplyDelete
  66. From BabsProjects: Like someone mentioned before, I wish I would have a real version of this growing in my backyard. No harm in day dreaming right? Would be great to pluck out some bills every time my kids wanted something.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I would like to learn to fold paper like that. I fold shapes sort of with fabric, but the paper is just so precise and cool, huh.

    ReplyDelete
  68. That one is very well done! I think I have something new on my wish list. lol

    ReplyDelete
  69. It does look pretty cool.

  70. Oh Lordy, this really dates me but I sure do remember that song.
    "If you've got the money honey I've got the time We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time We'll have more fun baby on the way down the line".

    I was just a child at that time so I know it must have been Lefty Frizzell's version (as his was the original put out sometime in the early 50's) Willie Nelson's version didn't come out until 1976 and by then I was a wife and mother.
    I can still hear the melody in my head, a real country western "Honky Tonk" tune. :D

    1. Ha! Another person who knows the song! :) I'm pretty sure she had a record, and that it was Lefty Frizzell's version. :)

      Delete
  71. Wow, that's a creative way to fold money!

    ReplyDelete
  72. It is very cool... If you got the money honey, I got the time.
