Two artichokes on a stick...

It's amazing what you can do with artichokes!  I glittered & impaled a couple of them, popped them into a green painted cast-iron urn and voila...
a nifty artichoke topiary.  
Artichokes are fast becoming my biggest selling ornaments at holiday time.  I glaze 'em with gold dust or a bit of lime green glitter, add a bow and a hand-forged hook and folks hang 'em on their holiday tree or a chandelier or nestle them in the greens on the mantle.
  Who knew the thorny little buggers that are 
so darned hard to eat 
(but so darned delish) would make such fine decorations? 
Nature really is perfect, 'ya know... 
I guess I'm just an artichoke addict.....

Artichokes are so underrated! Love to see them on a topiary. Very clever.
