Haberdashery cabinet circa 1930
If it was possible to truly fall in love with inanimate objects, I would be head over heels for this haberdashery cabinet. It is just gorgeous! But the fact that it is meant for sewing notions, well, that just makes me twitterpated!

DIY Painted Cactus Garden : Craftberry Bush
Although not technically container gardening, I could not resist sharing this cactus garden made of painted rocks. Simple enough for a child, but with the potential for an adult to really get in there with detail and shading. It’s just so darling!

The tutorial is in Portugese (I believe) but the photos are pretty self explanatory.
