A Common Factor

Can you guess what all of these delightful rooms have in common?


















Did you figure it out?  So, what is the common factor in all of these rooms?

Elephants! I love elephants. I come by it naturally since my grandmother (Memere) collected them. I have one of hers on my mantle, and it's one of my favorite pieces of decor.

Elephants. At first I thought it was roman shades...and then I got completely confused...and then I noticed the cutest little elephants! :)

Susie @ Maddie's Nest said...

Duh totally easy. I knew in the first shot what it was going to be.

Our mutual love of ELEPHANTS!

At first my answer was that they were all gorgeous, but then, after reading everyone else's post, I guess elephants. I admit I'm slow on Mondays!
Love this post, and I am still eyeing that chocolate cake on the table. I think I lost my train of thought there.
Why had they only eaten 1 piece?
Have nice day.

Heffalumps! I've been baby sitting too much lately. Too many episodes of winnie the pooh.

At first I thought it was "light" and then my "lights" switched on and I knew that the elegant and whimsy of elephants was the common denomenator!

Took me a minute but elephants (which I love!).

Tensy said...

I was raised with a superstitious tradition of placing decorative elephants, especially with their trunks up, near entrances to a home. One of my kids asked me where the idea came from and while doing a Google search I read that: "Ornamental elephants are supposed to be good luck, very lucky really. Wooden they say are best,and they should have their trunks up to protect from bad luck... But they are good in groups of eight or nine and should be placed in a wealth area of your home." So I think the idea is originally from the Orient and possibly based on Feng Shui(although I grew up in Cuba.)

Great elephant round-up Lindsay! I just bought some stunning elephant paper at the Paper Source - I think there's one near you. It's totally frameable art for like $7.

abby jenkins said...

I was at a silent auction fundraiser with my husband and his co-workers...long story short the company 'won' a huge white ceramic elephant end table. I was thrilled! Obviously one of the guys who had to bring it back to the office thought it was a joke and threw it in the dumpster. I am still bummed out whenever I see elephants indoors and that was three years ago.
Thanks..boo hoo hoo....
