I confess, I have a serious crush on elephants. It all started with a vintage pink cast iron elephant bank that I found over 10 years ago. As my collection grew, I began dispersing them throughout my home and workspace. You can find them mixed in with the dishes……hanging out on the coffee table, playing in the nursery and resting on my desk. I'm not sure how many is too much or if there is such a thing, but at this point I can't help but take them home when they cross my path. They bring me serious joy — but that's the point of a collection, right?
Just in case you too may be elephantine in your collection habits, make sure the trunk is "up" to bring you lots of luck! Happy collecting!
