The Elephant in the Living Room...



Arizona winters
are usually dry. Cold up here in the North country...and very dry. Which is where a cool mist humidifier usually comes in handy. The one I had died a horrible death last year, for some odd reason. I had a funeral for it though, and didn't think about it until I closed the house up, and we all started to dry out. I found myself at Target yesterday morning before work because they have humidifiers on sale...better yet, they are in the shapes of animals. A frog, penguin, alligator and elephant. My mother actually bought the elephant at a yard sale last year, and not only is it super quiet, it works very well and it is adorable to boot. In fact, these are known at the Adorable Humidifiers...

So, now I have
an elephant in the living room. But unlike the traditional elephant in the living room...we can talk about this one with no hurt feelings or awkwardness on anyone's part. Well, unless you don't count any of the other Adorably shaped humidifiers I passed up in favor of the elephant...they may have hurt feelings.

OMG that is CUTE!!! Thankfully we don't need humidifiers here or I'd have to go buy one right now!! My parents actually have to use a dehumidifier in the summers to keep things from mildewing in the house. They don't have central heat/air in their older home.

He's adorable! I only wish I'd known you needed a humidifier. Now that we live in the Pacific Northwest, ours isn't getting any use. I would have sent it to you (which would have been perfect, considering our recent too-many-appliances discussion).

ADORABLE! Also? I want a dry winter! The humidity here in the winter is ridiculous; the summer, though, is quite nice without it.

That's pretty darned cute! I saw one recently that I think was a cat. Or maybe a bear. The elephant is a new one, though.

I'm so behind the times. I must get these for my kids! Utah winters are cold and dry. The doctor is always telling us to use cool mist humidifiers but I always buy the terrible ones with filters that get disgusting.
