Nicole Richie’s Elephant Wedding Guest Made Me Want My Own (Not Real) Elephants

So, as you might have heard by now, Lionel Richie surprised Nicole Richie with an elephant at her wedding because she’s always adored them. I’m withΒ  her. There is something so endearing about elephants. In fact, I think I need some more elephants in my life! Now, don’t get all up in arms PETA…I’m not talking about real ones. I’m referring to the kind you can adorn yourself or decorate your pad with. Methinks they would make pretty fabulous Christmas gifts too!

    I love elephants in jewelry and decor — something about them just feels so peaceful to me.

    We were just at the San Diego Zoo last month and I was quite smitten with the elephants, something about them, so sweet. I bet with her wedding elephant we are about to see an explosion of elephant items.

    Following your beautiful blog now, I tweeted and FB-ed, and would absolutely love to win a $100 gift card to Crate & Barrel. I receive their catalogs and there’s a store close by in UTC! I love everything, but especially all their beautiful plates and bowls! Shop there all the time…great decor items, not only fun for appetizers, pasta, soups and salads, but perfect for jewelry photo shoots, too!

    Love the hanging ornaments. I’d hang one by my front door–having an elephant by the entry of your home is good luck to all who enter!

    omg, this is too funny. i recently won a silver elephant pendant necklace and my hubby thought i said “i really want an elephant necklace” instead of “i just won an elephant necklace”. so he ended up buying me 4 elephant necklaces for the holidays! πŸ™‚

    I love elephants too & that is an awesome gift for Nicole on her wedding day! I’m not sure tho what the saying is that its always good to give an elephant but bad luck if you buy an elephant for yourself. I dunno. I might be wrong. =P These are all so pretty tho!!
