Elephants Off to Bed

Look at this delightful vintage print (from 1914!) that I picked up for Mac's nursery on Etsy this week:

That grumpy elephant on the left is everything.

I've been struggling with art for the nursery's walls and decided to dive into a vintage print search on Etsy and was rewarded with these fellows, off to bed in their nightshirts and caps. It was love at first sight.

I'm having it matted in black and I think a black bamboo frame might be in order. It's shipping from the UK so it might be a while before I get it but I'm looking forward to its arrival!

More details about Mac's nursery are coming up...planning several posts. I think y'all are going to love it.

    I think a little boy will love these for many years.

    Book jackets and prints from the 20's through the 50's were so beautiful!

    I don't know anything about the room but maybe pick up some of the coral/red from their caps in the mat or frame?

  3. The elephants are so adorable. Wearing white dresses makes them more humorous and interesting.
