One thing I love about instagram is that it provides a visual feast for the eyes. One account I follow there that never fails to make me smile everytime it post update is Gawani Femi.

This account is owned by Femi Cachola, an artist and crafterpreneur, who does amazing things with pots. She paints and gives each of them a character, and calls them potheads. The result is pretty amazing especially when you match them with the right succulents or cacti plant.
Here are some samples of her artworks:

Mimi an Otaku who is passionate about all things Kawaii
