Friends came over to hear about our trip to India. Oh boy, holiday snapshots!
Show and tell. At least you can put the photos on the computer as a slide show
with the Ken Burns effect --minus the mopey music
and chat through the whole thing.
Oddly, we didn't buy too much in India but were charmed
by the wooden elephant and tiger above.
Their heads and tails bob up and down when you circle a little wooden ball.
Four year old twins of our acquaintance here they come.
Do not let Danny-Patty (little brother) eat them as the paint is sure to be toxic.
This painting is even smaller than shown here and shows a pretty typical family
both in elephant and real worlds. Parents locked together
in affection or combat --or both. One child hanging out with Mom and Dad
the other off in search of adventure.....
Obviously, I am a complete sucker for images elephants.
These nice pink ones run round on soft light cotton.
Elephant silk scarf sent to daughter -- but the little camel is lovely too.
