Me with most of the small'pos I was taking in my suitcase to Toronto when I recently went to the annual Hippolotofus reunion. Hippolotofus (get it?) is the intenational hippo collectors club. I don't often make them this small but they had to fit in the case and within the weight restriction. My necklace, which I wore, was much commented on by airport staff and customs agents. "You're going to a what?"...
More hippos can be seen in my website gallery [link] or you could see if I have any hippos for sale [link] Hippopottermiss is on facebook: [link] and Google+ [link]
What a wonderful grouping! They are charming at any size, but to be able to hold one in the palm of your hand makes them even more so And your necklace could make even a grumpy person smile! Their playful poses and expressions and size make me think of fairies....oh! little hippos with little fairy wings
That idea has been floating round in my head for a little while now, waiting for the time to try it
My necklace even got the grumpy canadian customs agent smiling & talking. She couldn't believe there is such a thing as an international hippo collectors club. She was asking me if I'd seen real hippos in the wild (yes).
