Gorgeous Greys

Poor grey has a bad reputation.  It's boring, rainy, drab and miserable.  And nobody ever says their favourite colour is grey.  So today I'm going to convert you all to loving grey by showing you some of the gorgeous grey items available on Etsy.

Before we start I just want to show off my pen pot.  You may remember on Monday I said I'd been playing with 123D Make, well it took 2 evenings (and a bit of an afternoon) to make but I'm quite pleased with him.  Not bad considering he started life as a box of nappies.  Now I just have to decide if I want to leave him as he is, or give him a clay skin so I can paint him.  I've lots more ideas now he's done so it looks like my house will soon be overrun with pen pots and other cardboard creations.

3D Wooden Elephant by EnchantedWoodworking
£5 (+ £3 p&p)
This small, wooden elephant is perfect for the animal lover in your family! The elephant's body is painted gray with white tusks and black eyes.
