I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas

I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas. What, you too?  Then check out my guest post over at Mod Cloth!

And while you are over there, check out some of the nifty Mod Cloth merch, including A Certain Furry Fanilow’s Christmas present (unfortunately, Lola took a pass on the hippo. Oh well, there is always next year.)

    this is magical! you wouldn’t happen to be selling it anywhere would you? or possibly make custom ones?

    ME TOO!!!! I asked my husband to get me one last week!!!! Only mine would be out of African iron wood, and so lovely and fat and shiny!!! Oh I so hope he gets me it.

    Great guest post! I would love to see what your Christmas tree looks like…I bet it’s full of fun treasures like this!

    Love! I would not tinker with perfection, the multi-colored spangles are the way to go. Hippo on a stick had me laughing a looong-ass time.

    Thanks guys!!! Glad you like this one. Hippo still needs a name, btw, if anyone should have a good idea.

    Natasha –thanks for asking! This Hippo is a gift and I would not be able to make another just like it before Xmas this year…but if you are in the market for one/some next year, send me an email!
