This textile is a succulent plant addict. during the week, I work on my textile designs, But on the weekend, you will find me cruising flea markets for unusual containers for my ever growing succulent container garden.

Not all my flea markets finds are suited to container gardening, but I have always been able to figure out  way to include them in my succulent garden.

But for now, it houses a mini cactus that got separated from his mom:) [caption id="attachment_1421" align="aligncenter" width="400"]Kinda cool eh? Kinda cool eh?[/caption] Even a discarded wine bottle cork was put to great as a container for this cactus orphan. A suction cup glued to the back made it a perfect companion for my naked sliding glass door.

I found this orange planter for only .50 cents. Although it is not particularly unusual, I am digging the color.

Can you see the little frog peaking out - he was another flea market find.

And the purple pot had a twin - but not identical.
