Well I scored at the weekend - I scored a pair of absolutely brilliant, really old, cast bronze elephant book ends. I love them. I got them at our local antique store who always have great things - the Bronze Peacock. Marlene had purchased a whole lot of bookends from a collector and they are selling fast. What a great theme for a collection - so beautiful and useful too. She has a couple of art deco owls(look like a Rockwell Kent illustration) that are on hold for some one else(hmmmm, who would that be?) - but I am hoping I might score those too. Thanks Linda for the heads-up on those.

What a find!
I LOVE seeing other people's vintage stashes - always gets me jonesing for a thrifting trip of my own.
I have a 20" tall bronze elephant that was my grandpa's - one of my prized possessions. Great doorstop too ;)

I have tons of books and only one set of bookends - a large wooden acorn.

Elephants are my favorite and these bookends are absolutely stellar. I am going to get a line of ele's holding each other's tails on my forearm in an old newsprint style that reminds me of your work. Love your art and love your blog! Cheers!
