Some of you may know I have a large collection of Elephants, not real ones but ornamental Elephants. A while ago a good friend gave me a glass Elephant with golden features. The first words that came out of my mouth was exquisite so I thought that this would be a good subject for the theme.
Well it is hard to get a good image of glass objects so here are a few of the better photos I hope.
I had these ready to go but other photos seem to take over. I have a certain fascination for boxes especially wooden boxes. Yes this is another thing I try to keep under control but some times….well you know how it is. They mostly have a purpose.
There were a lot of tree songs that didn’t make the cut either
Here is a small sample of the boxes from big to small, some toys and a few of my other “addiction” – Elephants, these are some made from wood.
These wooden suitcases hold my photos I try to sell and other items when I go to the markets. I am looking for a leather handle for the one on the left.
I use this recycled box I bought as a display stand. The wooden stool on the right, my grandfather made.
An old looking reproduction box
Just one of the elephants
Three small boxes. One quite old and I like the other two with inlays. The bottom one is maybe from India like the Indian Elephants on the left. There are three that fir inside each other
Some wooden toys I have found at the markets most likely some Grandpa’s shed projects.
This photo is an after thought, also not square (sorry Becky). A wonderful pull along toy on a chair me Grandfather also made.
I like this one. It is Bamboo with a felt lining. Maybe at one time held coasters, now holds match boxes near the fireplace.
This is one of the large boxes. It is filled with photo frames I have bought and they get used every now and then. It was a tool box and has a few compartments.
It has been used in the past to hold the Christmas presents with the Christmas bears and others standing guard
One of my favourite big boxes. It has a green flock lining. The hard to read engraving on the outside show the box was used by The Crown Cork Company from Southall Middlesex England but I cannot find a date
Of course there are quite a number more but that’s enough I reckon. Thanks for hanging around with me and my square trees and a bit of music. Some of the songs I haven’t heard before so it was good to enjoy some new music with you. I wonder what October Squares will bring us?
