What's It Wednesday #113
Well everyone I am happy to report that 75% of my boxes are unpacked and the move to our new home went without a hitch...as long as you don't count me getting sick, then my daughter and putting my mother in the hospital, twice. Just grateful to God that everyone is well.
Well as many of you know, yours truly has a major elephant addiction. This wooden find came from an antique dealer out of Rajastan, India which just so happened to fill three of my addictions.
This darling elephant (elephants - addiction number 1) is from early 1900's India and beautifully hand-carved.
Although I love the outside, the inside of the box (boxes - addiction number 2) is what intrigued me the most.
Once I opened the box on it's hinges I wondered how long it took to carve out all of the diamonds and holes.
Inside just got better because those holes in the top and bottom of the wooden case once held cigarettes. This satisfied another addiction (cigarette cases - addiction number 3). Yep, the non-smoker is addicted to cigarette cases.

Visit my Up in Smoke post for more on my collection of tobacciana, then you will understand my obsession.
Well I knew exactly what to do with the silver cigarette cases that I have collected over the years. However, I do not know what to do with this little guy other then add him to my elephant
Have you ever collected anything that really had no other purpose then what it was designed?
