Not sure about the ivy part, but I'm wondering if you might be Deltas. My good friend is a Delta and she collects elephants.

Hi Ladies!
Congratulations on 2 months. The elephant represents the strong hearts of the Delta Sigma Theta sisters and the ivy stands for the strong, long lasting friendships of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sisters. Is it ok that I did a little research? Love your blog name and what it represents!

I truly have no idea about the name unless it has something to do with the super cute planter at the beginning of the post. :)

Jenelle said...

Love your blog! I know that there was a lot of symbolism in Victorian times--perhaps Ivy and Elephants is taken from there? Even if its not, I love the name (HUGE elephant fan!)

Thank you very much for the invitation. The winner be a lucky and a very happy person. I am new follower. I am inclined to agree with Lynn on your title. I do not do Facebook or Twitter. My "smarts" does not understand the linking process. I will be back to see what other great posts you share.

Jeanne said...

OK, one of you loves Ivy and gardening and the other collects elephants.

It is a pleasure to meet you Patti and Paula. Thank you for the chance to win your sweet giveaway.
Best wishes on your new Blog. It looks like you already have a jump start. You go girls.
Hugs, Jeanne

SavannahGranny said...

It may be for Delta Sigma Theta and Alpha Kappa Alpha. However I believe that you are strong, family oriented women with a keen sense of family like the beloved Elephant. Ivy speaks of endurance, determination and beauty.
Thanks for the giveaway. Hugs, Ginger

I'm a follower of your lovely blog.

Shell said...

Maybe the name comes from the fact that Ivy is a hardy and beautiful plant that grows in a lot of places. And Elephants because it's a symbol of prosperity and good luck.

Hey lovely ladies! What a fantastic giveaway! That bottle is just gorgeous and you know we are happy followers/friends of your incredible blog. :-)

Hi Girls,
Took your button and is already on my blog.

Suzy said...

Congrats on 2 months! Having read the comments I feel as thought I'd be cheating to say symbols of your sororities. How about I just guess that they are things you love :-) The ivy in the elephant at the beginning of your post is just precious and so is the pretty bottle. Thank you for your generosity!

romance-of-roses said...

For some reason I seem to believe that the name of Ivy and Elephants has something to do with both of your mothers. Perhaps one is named Ivy and the other one likes or liked elephants and collected them. If you are sisters, still think mother's name is Ivy and she collected elephants.

I am a follower, however I would be just making a wild guess as to your fabulous blog name!

SJ @ Homemaker On A Dime said...

My speculation is you are both fond of ivy and you love India with all their friendly elephants.

So wonderful! Beautiful post as always!:)
Friend, I would love to see you on my blog:)

she dreams big! said...

New follower here! I think I'm going to like visiting you both very, very much!

she dreams big! said...

Only 2 months blogging? You are so fantastic already! I predict great success!

Okay, here is my guess -- one of you lives in an ivy covered cottage and the other collects elephants (I noticed quite a few when I read past posts). Or, you met at a circus and you both have ivy tattoos. Whatever the reason, the name of your blog is intriguing!

she dreams big! said...

Just put your button on my sidebar. Welcome to the world of blog!

Riet said...

HI to both of you. I just became your follower because I like your style and your blog. About why you chose your blogs name. Maybe ones first name is Ivy and the others surname is Elephant. Why not. I would love to enter in your give away. I hve a give-away too.
By the way. My name is Riet, and I live in Holland.

Jo Ann said...

I first thought maybe that's what captured your hearts, but then I saw the comment regarding your sororities! Love your blog!

Grammy Goodwill said...

So~only one of you must be a Delta and the other one belongs to AKA. It's amazing you can actually be friends. hehehe

Janet said...

Jane @ Jane's Junk and Treasures said...

And I have no idea about your name. But now I'm very curious! I think it's a great name.......what's the story??

Lydia said...

1. I liked y'all on Facebook.

2. We both attended HBCUs soooooo.....I think you chose "Ivy and Elephants" because you are a Delta and your partner is an AKA (skee-wee)!

Where my prize at? LoL!

Hello Lovely Ladies~
What a pretty bottle. Love seeing such creative ways to use old thing.
Have a wonderful weekend~

Diane Y said...

Now after seeing these fabulous old photos and reading your blog I am a follower.

Angel said...

My guess is that you name stems from more than the elephant plant holder with the ivy plant in it. My guess is that as two creative mothers you love helping things grow and making memories. An elephant never forgets, right? lol

Feather said...

Congratulations, this is one very stylish and ultra classy place to visit! Peace, Love and Rock on, Sistas! Julia<3
