Mere words can’t describe how much I want this:
I’ve had a thing for elephants for most of my life.Â My first stuffed animal – the one that my parents put in the crib with me -Â was an elephant.Â Ellie (not the most original name, I know, but I couldn’t say “elephant” for a long time) still sits on my bed.Â Then, when I was eight, my dad gave me a silver bracelet made up of tiny elephant charms that linked by a curved upwards trunk and a curved downwards tail.Â It doesn’t fit anymore, but IÂ can’t get rid of it.
My obsession continued through adolescence.Â Right after high school,Â my best friend went on a trip to Europe… and broughtÂ me back aÂ small clay elephant that she’d picked up in Italy.Â It’s only about an inch and a half tall, and it sits on my desk at work, watching me work.Â Then, in college, my other best friend gave me an elephant carved out of wood.Â The six-inch ‘phant has aÂ grin on its face, and sits on a shelf in my living room.Â Â Â Â
Now I’m inÂ love love LOVE with this blue elephant bank from Jonathan Adler.Â I want to add it to my small collection – it could be the elephant in my bedroom!Â Â Anyone want to buy it for me?Â Anyone?
