Vintage Seaside Cottage Ellyfont !



I have been inspired by the Old Seaside Cottages this summer, can't you tell ;)
I imagine that this Ellyfont was a carnival prize won at an old seaside boardwalk carnival during a summer family vacation back in the 1930's..... he was very well loved and played with each returning summer by his young owner ......as the years past and the young owner grew up and moved on, the old toy elephant was stored away in a trunk up in the attic of the old seaside cottage ........ only to be discovered today! LOL...how my imagination gets the best of me sometimes.....
Well he is not exactly that old elephant from long ago, but newly made by me and is now for sale on ebay. Just click on my ebay button to get there ...I have tons of pics & descriptions to share.
This guy looks and feels like an old toy elephant! If you like antique toys, then you won't be disappointed with this guy!!

Stunning. He reminds me of the beach huts that we have in the UK, those lovely shades, slightly weathered.
