Did you bring home Noah’s ark?

What are these little critters?

Mummy was in Jordan where there are a lot of Biblical references … img_0224And she decided to bring them home two by two!!!img_0223Ahhh! They’re moving in on me.img_0226You guys – you stay over there!img_0230That’s better!

May’s comment: Unconventional momentos from Jordan.  I wasn’t looking to buy anything but amongst all the hundreds of camels and more camels … I managed to find horses – “Nobody like horses” said Sandokan.img_0236I have been collecting horses for a very long time – albeit selectively. Browsing through the stalls in Garesh, I found all these horses that “no one wanted!”  Often you find these items that are manufactured and they’re everywhere. But I have never seen these before – made of metal, agate, enamel-coated, leather.

I was not collecting dogs but somehow, somewhere along the way, people started buying me little doggies that resembled Darcy. And unconsciously I was buying “cute” doggies that were not breed specific.  The ones I found in Jordan were definitely not “conventional dogs” – made of agate, camel bone and enamel and I definitely could not tell what breed they are!img_0235And while at it, bought my friend two giraffes for her collection – thankfully, she doesn’t have them.  And then two antelopes for Christmas!  So my horse and dog collection have grown significantly!
