What a find!!!

Check out this cool find from a local resale shop.....only a $1.00 for all four. They're very well made.....the bodies are stuffed hard and the trunks have wire in them.....I think I see a beading project here.....well at least one of them for sure......what do you think?

I challenge you.......the next time you go to a tag sale or a resale shop, find something to bead, embellish or alter that you normally would think of using!

These are so cute. Did you know if you display an elephant in your house, it must face outwards. I don't know why, but I was told that many years ago. One of these would look absolutely brilliant beaded, go for it.
I am up for your challenge, by the resale shop though, do you mean a charity shop??

Jan, yes I did hear that if an elephants trunk is up it's good luck....if you believe in!
Yes, a charity shop counts....even a yard sale....can't wait to see what you find my dear!!!
