Vintage Leather Camel

scan0037OK, here is one of Blue Camel’s buddies. He is about six inches tall and made of stuffed leather, blanket-stitched together with green thread and probably from Libya.┬áHe is quite old; I remember playing with him when I was a kid. I liked his silky fringe.

The end. Ha. Honestly, I’ve spent too much time today trying to write something interesting and it is just not happening. Time to move on. I’d rather get on with the next and last camel illustration. Just the three camels. Unless we decide to count the cool enamel camel pendant I have…ooooh–thrift store jewelry–that opens up a whole other world of wonder! And then there will be the elephants.
