Cactus Monday

Another Monday has rolled in and this week I have created a special "cool" bbq planter.(-: The cactus were already planted in the bbq but I added the "cool" part the other day. My husband brought me home a box of broken safety glass because he knew I could figure out something to do with it. I sure did. Check this out...

Doesn't it look like ice? I picked it up with my bare hands so really its not sharp and dangerous. I wouldn't walk on it but its ok for a planter(-:
Now, don't you feel cooler?(-:

Next is a Rat Tail on a chair.

And a rat tail in a old pitcher.

Enjoy your day and don't forget to swing by and check out the other Cactus Monday participants at our hostess with the mostest Teri

I absolutely love the contrast of the Ice and fire in your former cooker. It is a perfect set up. The rat tail is interesting too.
