Got Glass?

Someone on Garden Junk posted this picture and said this place is in Austin, Texas.
Maybe some of you locals have had the thrill of going there. Please post and let me know what it was like(-: I think the glass is so pretty.
I have one piece of glass that my daughter gave me that was at her apartment when she moved in. She didn't want it!!! I love it! It reminds me of Kryptonite.(-:
Pam from Digging Was kind enough to share this link with us. Living Desert Cactus Nursery
Thanks Pam!!!!

I believe that a few of the Austin blogers have gotten glass from this site! It's beautiful!

It is beautiful. I would love to find a cheap source for this glass.

I've been there! It's at a 20-year-old nursery/garden shop in Bee Caves near Austin called the Living Desert, and the whole back yard is filled with piles of glass. The owners also make incredible succulent container plantings. It's a quirky, fun place that's threatened by mall development and soaring property values. Go while it's still there.

For a tour, check out this homemade video by the owner. It'll make you smile.

Beautiful glass, look at all those colors. I love the piece of glass your daughter gave you too, it looks like a huge gem. :)

Oh, I hope I can slip off to Austin and get a few chunks. Henryetta, Oklahoma has a place that sells it, too. They sell it by the pound. My mother in law had a large chunk of aqua, the color in your last photo. I went and bought cobalt blue. Somehow in our last move, the cobalt piece disappeared (maybe still in the garage, packed). So a few weeks ago, my mother in law sent me her aqua piece. It is beside my butterfly puddle (I'm showing it in my post tomorrow).

I just found your blog. I'm in Austin but not familiar with that place. I'm going to have to check it out.

Hi Nola,
I hope you get to go too. Let me know if you get any. I am curious as to how much they sell them for.

Hi Sandra,
Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope you get to go visit that place to. Let me know if you get a rock(-:
