Succulents

I have a confession to make. I'm sort of addicted to succulents...you know those plants so cute you want to squeeze their cheeks (except the cacti, you don't want to do that). Since moving into a new apartment in December, my roommate and I have gone a bit succulent crazy over here. And with that comes the need for stuff to pot them in. I tend to prefer simple white ceramic pots, but then I saw these works of genius. The artist, Rachel Mahlke, wanted to emphasize the fearless & glamorous woman when she decided to repurpose stripper heels, but I just see two of my favorite things living as ONE.

Fuuuuck I want this SO badly. I can just imagine a little cute cactus in my bedroom. Also, the heel on that last picture.....is it me or does it look like a gun?
