Elephantitis

I used to collect elephants. I still sort of do, except that the large majority of my elephants (approx 100 of them) have gone missing. Not good. They’ve just vanished off the face of the earth. I have lost two full boxes of them including ones bought by family, ex-boyfriends made of crystal, resin, glass, wood, stone. I have less than 20 left. I’m trying to avoid thinking of the cost of them all – close on $2000. I’ve also lost the Bunnykins plates and mugs we used as kids – as close to family heirlooms as we have had. Not good!!! There’s not a single place left to look for the elephants and only one possible place left to look for the Bunnykins stuff. This is really my year for losing stuff – cats, elephants, heirlooms. Ack.

On more cheerful stuff I am back on the happy pills and finally have my need to stitch back. I found this image from a book Hope thrifted and I just had to embroider the elephant. Starting my collection again, on the cheap anyway. And they came out super cute!!
