I was in my favorite thrift store, The Gleaners House, looking for some items my students could use as costumes for their Mythology project.
I did find three items that may work for some of the students. However, the most exciting item was this:
It is a vest decorated with elephants! The thread work is all hand crafted with colored strings shot through with a metallic gold thread. The elephants have dull gold sequins stitched on.
I have no idea what I am going to do with this, (it is a bit too tight across my shoulders to wear comfortably), but I had to own it!
