Femme Succulents

When you pair succulents and stilettos what do you get? A totally sexy femme arrangement. Who knew?! Check out these funky creations from Etsy shop giddyspinster: dreamy things
Here is the interesting blurb from the Shop Announcement:these shoes are used/ upcycled. The concept is about hard-working women, the increasingly artificial nature of American femininity, and the impossible images that women face in our society. It's a prickly, spiky, sticky situation...
In the description of each planter, she leaves you with these lines:
The - plant will need very bright light and just a little water from time to time. In return, it'll repay you with a stark reminder of how hard it is to...well, to be a woman.
Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels. ~Faith Whittlesey
