The Cacti Craze
Prickly, pretty succulent accessories
If you haven’t noticed the boom in cacti-themed accessories for, well, just about everything, you will now. While a cactus might seem like a curious choice of thing to own, let alone have depicted on your coffee mug, it’s actually quite charming. Small caricatures of the plant can be spotted almost anywhere, from a welcome mat to your serving dishes … not to mention that, if you want a living cactus, the choices are almost overwhelming, as there are so many. Sometimes cute and whimsical, they can also bring a sense of warmth, conjuring feelings of desert air and big, blue skies. Real or not, make this design accent a treat for any room in your home.
