A New Find

This beautiful fusion of bud vases caught my eye at the Urban Flea. It was expensive for flea market standards, but I couldn't resist. 

I planted tiny tufts of green-leaved plants in there shortly after this. Those succulent buds pictured were from my yard, and leaked a milky-white liquid when I cut them, which turned out to be incredibly potent. I washed my hands afterwards, but the residue stayed, and after touching my face, it went numb and red and swollen. I googled it, and apparently you are supposed to wear gloves when handling these type of plants. They are also very toxic to cats. 

A good reminder to be careful when handling plant-life. Things that look pretty aren't always safe.
