Another elephant needs a home

Looking for love
Nuffy is learning to walk. But with that nose it can be a bit of a bumpy road. She is unafraid though.

Nuffy knew her mother briefly. She wishes she was still here, but her mother taught her well and that anytime she sees a tulip, that will be her, or when she smells cinnamon, that will be her. Nuffy also thinks that white clouds with grey spots are her mother so she really sees her often.

She would like to be adopted by a home with elephants, but if that is not possible, she just wants to be her ownself and be all elephanty and not told to be quiet or not play with her trunk.

Nuffy is needle felted with the wool of one of Apifera's grande dams, Annah Assumpta, a beautiful Leister sheep. Her body is sturdy and is made by refurbishing and needle felting over a vintage stuffed doll form a Paris flea market. The insides are excelsior shavings giving her body a firm feel. Her arm and leg joints move. She can stand, with some help. She's about 15" tall.

Visit the shop to bring Nuffy home.
