"Reclaimed" Boxwood Clippings

I'm always hearing the word "reclaimed" when it comes to interior design. Usually, it's referring to wood floors or sometimes doors. This morning, Christopher and I (*mainly Christopher) did a little reclaiming of our own.

Last night we were driving home from the gym and I noticed one of our neighbors had a huge trash can sitting out by the street with TONS of boxwood clippings. I have a thing for boxwood; obsession may be the more accurate term. I'm not certain why, but I find them classy, timeless and clean. Anyways, the yard waste doesn't get collected until Friday so this morning while Christopher was walking Luca he "reclaimed" a large group of the clippings. I used them to add some fresh greenery to the kitchen, since flowers from Whole Foods don't really fit into our "law school budget" right now.
