New Project and Su-weet Find

Found this small (14" x 14") ceramic garden stool at Goodwill and couldn't resist an elephant with an upturned trunk (see Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic Interiors, page 109, for my inspiration). A friend had given me a pint of gray paint, a tester for their living room and one they didn't settle upon. I took it, thinking it would sit in the garage gathering dust, but I've used it for so many things. And this elephant was begging for a rich, warm gray coat. You can't see the true gray here, but it's lovely. I plan on adding more colors and embellishments, but am taking my time to figure out exactly what I want to do with it, where I'd like to put it.

Bought these branch pencils at TJMaxx for $4.99. Love love love 'em. 
I suppose I'll have to sharpen them with a whittlin' knife.

What a great idea to paint the elephant! I love it and I also heart the pencils. They are just too cute.
