Life is just weird.  I've come to be a true believer in the idea that if you put something out to the universe, the universe will answer.  Hopefully it is the answer you are looking for.  Yesterday morning I did a post on Chinoiserie garden stools and how I was specifically obsessing over the elephant version.  Shortly after, I receive an email from a neighbor asking me if I had been to the estate sale in our neighborhood because it was full of items from the 60s/70s that I might be interested in.  She forewarned me that "digging" would be involved.  Since I had no knowledge of said estate sale (I'm off my game), I hopped in the car to check it out.  She was right.  Let's just say this person had a collecting problem and not the good kind.  After doing an initial once over and seeing nothing of interest, I decided to do a more thorough inspection of the back room that was piled high.  Out of the corner of my eye I saw a trunk sticking up out of the pile.  I hurried over and pulled back the boxes to unearth a very cool vintage elephant garden stool.  THANK YOU UNIVERSE!
Here's a quick look at my current selection.  Don't you need one of these under your tree?  Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Not fair!!! :) The right one looks like the mom version of my bookends.

  2. Such a great story. I really need to hit up an estate sale.

  3. I like the one on the left. (Heard an elephant's trunk should be raised for good luck?)

  4. I wish I could have gone to that estate sale! what fun, and great finds!

  5. So true! In my area Estate Sale means rip-off! Great score.

  6. Ask and you shall receive. I got a white one off of CL a few months ago and I have spied one in the yard of what looks like a vacant house. I want it but not sure how to proceed. What would you do?


Thank you for taking the time to comment!! I love hearing from you!
