Toronto Hippopottermiss by Hippopottermiss Toronto Hippopottermiss by Hippopottermiss
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?"...

:bulletpurple: More hippos can be seen in my website gallery [link] :bulletpurple:
:bulletblue: or you could see if I have any hippos for sale [link] :bulletblue:
:bulletred: Hippopottermiss is on facebook: [link] and Google+ [link] :bulletred:

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 :giggle:

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).
