Elephant Fever

There are a lot of animals I would love to have- a monkey, a mini horse, a llama and most of all, an elephant. Naturally none of these will be sleeping in my bed with me (Bax and Ollie only part of the problem) but it doesn’t stop me from obsessively loving creatures great and small. The greatest of the great being the elephant. My number one travel goal in life is to go on a safari and see one in it’s natural habitat, but until then I just can surround myself with the bevy of elephant good for the home and self- and apparently it’s quite de riguer!

I am sure all of you have read Water for Elephants, but even better, I dare say, was Modoc: The True Story of the Greatest Elephant That Ever Lived. You have to give it a try! I loved it. And next up on my reading list is Love, Life and Elephants. Have you read it? I hear it’s fabulous!

J.Crew has a great elephant pendant and I was so so excited to get this Knight&Hammer Baby Phil elephant ring not only because it’s awesome but because all pieces in the Knight&Hammer Jewelry with A Conscience donates a portion of the proceeds from each purchase to the fantastic helpingelephants.org!

Duralee just launched a great line of affordable fabrics with famed John Robshaw- and there are a few elephant prints in there!

A fantastic Robshaw throw pillow off his own site.

This vintage table is pretty amazing in an entry, no?

I have a vintage version of the Two’s Company table at left, but also love this outdoor umbrella stand table for the patio! Put in between two chaise lounge chairs it has just enough space to put down a cocktail!

Elephant themes for nurseries is one of my favorites! Serena and Lily has the cutest upholstered cube and quilt in my other favorite orange and pink!!

How about these shower invites from iomoi?

This adorable and snuggly baby blanket from Etsy seller Seasons of Love would be a great gift!

I would never have real taxidermy of a sweet elephant, but this resin version would be so great in a nursery/ child’s room

Love this grown up but whimsical stationery from iomoi (they have so much great elephant stuff!)

I love brass elephant figurines for a bookshelf or mantle- this one from eBay reminds me so much of Water for Elephants!  A more subtle choice is this pink champagne scented candle from Gumps (and use the vessel as a catch-all once the candle is done!)

A cute and subtle elephant print blouse from Modcloth and a summer weight Tory Burch scarf (on sale!)
