Show & Tell: Collections

A little late is better than never... I made that up myself. I wasn't sure if scanning my precious, stuffed Elephant was a good idea, so instead I have these cute odds (not the ends) from my collection. 
















One is a beer coaster for Delirium Tremens, playing on the idea of the pink elephant which is quite witty for a beer company. The other is a bracelet from the Buffalo Zoo in NY that reads, I (heart icon) Elephants (elephant icon). Other things in my elephant collection:
  • Statue from Thailand
  • Statue from the Dominican Republic
  • Wooden candle holder
  • Photo of an obelisk that had an elephant at the base of it in Rome, IT
  • Photo of me with a large elephant statue outside of a famous museum in Paris, FR that I can't remember the name of
  • And a tiny little plastic statue that I think came from a gumball machine
I'm amassing quite the collection from people (most of the above were gifts), although I urge them that I'm much more interested in live elephants and not replicas, but they just don't listen.

I really liked your collection. You sure were holding on to your stuffed elephant very tightly during class. So cute!

I was hoping you were going to bring a case of wine as your collection. A collection you could share...and consume.

I agree with Danielle. Elephants are cute, especially soft and cuddly ones, but wines would have been grand. I wouldn't have minded if it were just Yellow Tail, cheap stuff from OZ.

lol i'm glad it was cute and not really pathetic. but i love my elephant (his name is elmer) so much! i almost brought wine in! but i keep it in a safe place for storage (my bf's parent's "cellar") so i just didnt have the time to run up there. plus, i thought my bringing in wine would be a bit too expected. :)
