Etsian Giddy Spinster's motto is Cheeky Modern Home Decor. Well, that seems right about on target. She takes heels and turns them into planters for succulents. That sure is a sassy way to make a statement!

According to the artist:

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...

You get the shoe and the plant when you place an order. She recommends bright light and a little bit of water. In line with sustainable agriculture, she uses only natural and organic fertilizers and soils, and she sources all of her plants from 100% certified organic growers, mainly out of Berkeley, which for this artist is very local.

The shoes pictured above in order from left to right:

1. LA Woman Stiletto Succulent Planter $42
2. Black Prince Stiletto Succulent $70
3. Pinup's Revenge Stiletto Succulent $55
4. Space Egg White Stiletto Planter $50
5. Moonshine Stiletto Planter $60

What do you think of this look? Would you ever have it in your home?
