Call me the elephant lady…

Ok you all know my obsession with elephants. I’ve already mentioned that one more elephant in my house would have people start calling me the elephant lady!

 



Well this weekend I officially made it happen, by not only buying one, but two elephants during my treasure hunt.

 



Remember this layout in LONNY?

Well check out what came home with me:

They are not identical, but I think they give off the same vibe. She will be living in my new office, which is almost finished! They originally had her marked at $90, but she had been reduced to $30!

 



If you want your own you can find a version here  for $79.99 :

Or here for $89.95:

And my mystery item from this room:

Was the elephant shelf in the corner of the room!

It will be going in my half bath that is also almost finished! I’m so excited about all of the rooms in the house are 90% finished. I just need one final push and I can start sharing all the before and afters!

Hey we all collect something, don't we? Roosters, elephants, birds. At least you are unique! I love the shelf and can't wait to see it in your bathroom! By the way, I collect lamps, crowns and Eiffel Towers, I wonder what people would call me?

I JUST posted a pic of an elephant that we scored last weekend...identical to your little wicker guy. Likely produced by the same 70s company! ;) LOVE them.

These are so cute! I have a big thing for animal jewelry, and it apparently translates to furniture as well.
