I have been so obsessed with the “artichoke motif” for the past few years. It all started when I saw the artichoke accessory that my mom purchased from Stephanie Anne. Of course, I wanted the exact same one when I saw it, but having just newly entered the working world, I settled for the less expensive version from Z Gallerie.
While all of my other accessories were put up on Craig’s List because I got tired of them, my white artichoke was the one piece that stayed with me from move to move (I suppose that means I must REALLY like it since things don’t stay around too long in my house)
Then the other day I ate lunch at the Bleu Artichoke Cafe (located in the Found Antiques showroom) and I just completely fell in love with the food and ambiance. There was even a blue artichoke sitting right next to me on the window ledge. How fitting!
My love for the artichoke just keeps on growing as I see it more and more in interior design. My mom even suggested that I start collecting them! I think they make adorable accessories.
