elephant treasures

elephants love reunions. they recognize one another after years and years of separation and greet each other with wild, boisterous joy. there's bellowing and trumpeting, ear flapping and rubbing. trunks entwine.

if any of you know me, you know that i have this slight obsession with elephants. they are stunning animals and i melt every time i see anything to do with one.

sometimes, when my dad comes across an elephant treasure - whether it be yard sales, antique shops, etc - he sends it to me in the mail or waits until the next time i see him to give to me. i decided it would be cute (and completely necessary!) to put a few of the ones my daddio gave to me together and take a family photo. let's not get crazy, i'm not an elephant lady, yet, so most of them have a home on a shelf in my "art closet," but a special few have a home on my bookshelves and night stand. keep in mind, i have an array of amazing friends that also give me elephant goodies, so they need places, too! each elephant i receive, no matter who it is from, always brings a smile to my face and warms my heart. 

(they are further reminders of my grandma, aiko, and i love surrounding myself with that).

no, i have not named them.
