    Elephants

    Elephants mean luck when the trunk is up and I have always loved everything about them from their colour to the way they carry themselves with strength and control with a carefree attitude.

    I have always found elephants fascinating

    creatures. I adore the way the love and protect one another. That's why, for several years now, I've collected figurines of elephants. I have a rule though. I never buy them. They can only be gifted. That makes them extra extra special. They become treasures.
