A Sunday Picture Post

I've just arrived home from one of the best weekend's ever and thought that I would share some pictures with you before I start to visit the 67 wonderful people who left me comments from SITS Pot Luck Friday.  We've been to London to see Bon Jovi and decided to make a weekend of it by doing some touristy stuff too......we even got to see the Queen!!!!

At the moment there is an exhibition/conservation campaign going on through the streets of London called the Elephant Parade. The aim is to raise £2 million for the Asian Elephants as well as to help 20 British Charities. There are 250 brightly coloured and painted Elephants in completely random places all over Town, each decorated by a different artists and celebrities including Sir Terence Conran and Tommy Hilfiger. We didn't manage to see all of them but here are a few of them:

  3. I love the cool elephants around London! It would be great to own one. But, where would you put it? Plus, I bet the shipping would be a fortune.

  4. @Jen......I'd put it in the garden but think they will go for thousands so definitely can't afford one!!!!

  7. The 3rd one is my favorite. The one with the little bear on top is a bit odd. Is elephant riding a common bear activity that I'm unaware of? :p
