What's It Wednesday #39
I have been a collector of all sorts of things ever since I was a little girl. My childhood collections were stamps, money, and dolls from around the world. As you know, I am still fond of collections, but my absolute favorite of my many collections are my elephants. For a girl like me, there is no such thing as having enough elephants.
They range in price from a wonderful Big Lot find to "you don't even wanna know".
My collections consist of African and Indian elephants. You can tell them apart quite easily. The African elephant's ears look similar to the shape of the continent of Africa. The Indian elephant, well, does not look like the country of India.
So what does one on an elephant shelf? Well an elephant of course.
There are elephants that are hidden in plain view and some that stand out like the bronze elephant on top of the armoire. The tassel that hangs in front has an elephant adorned on it.
I love elephants in print as well so these pillows were perfect.
The elephant buffet lamps were the perfect touch on my great-grandmother's lovely buffet.
Some elephants are hiding out like this one on the top of my great-grandmother's breakfront. You can just see her trunk peering out. She is a elephant planter with beautiful tropical flowers inside.
I have been fortunate to find several different ebony elephant candle stick holders from Africa. Each one is quite unique.
There is an elephant in every room of the house including the bathroom. This ladder shelf holds my favorite silver box from India along with a super cute white elephant I found at Marshalls.
What is your favorite animal to collect?
