I don’t know how many of you know of my undying love for elephants. It started when I was nine years old and, despite my fickle nature, it’s still going strong. I have a few elephants around the house, but not enough to make people feel awkward when they come over. In fact, I have done such a solid job keeping the elephant love to a respectable minimum that I doubt they even notice I favor the pachyderm. [mental note: find more reasons to use the phrase “I favor the pachyderm.”] I only buy what I love (muy importante) and try to limit it to things with value, monetary or emotional.
I love it when my friends and family (and even a few perceptive readers!) send me links to elephant related items they think I will like. Here are a few little lovers I have seen online that have caught my fancy. The funny thing is, I received all but one of them for my birthday or Christmas. My friends know me well.
The Jonanathan Adler Elephant Ornament was a Christmas present from Tristan, perhaps the only person who loves elephants as much as I do. She also bought me the sweet little teapot for my birthday. My friend from high school, Tiffany, bought me the Elephant Recipe Cards and Bookplates not knowing I have been a fan of Boy Girl Party for years. The Roost Bottle Opener has been on my favorites list forever since I spotted it a few years ago at Anthropolgie. They no longer carry the openers, but Delight carries the whole bunch. You kill me, Mr. Bull, with your long, sassy horns.
Surely I am not the only one drawn to a particular theme or animal or thingamabob? Do tell. I might find something I think you will like and send you a quick email. They really are the best kind of emails to get.
