This is the type of treasure that when I find it, I first say (usually out loud) "Why did someone get rid of this??" followed quickly by the curious question of "How has no one BOUGHT this yet?!" followed by refusing to put it down until I am at the checkout.
Not only is there a knee hugging elf, but he is sitting at the base of a LAMP POST! I don't know if I have mentioned it before here, but I have a odd fascination with lamp posts. I think it borders more on obsession? There is just something about the idea of someone walking around London (I am very specific with my obsessions) back in the 1800's, at dusk, lighting corner street lamps! It just does it for me.
And this one also sort of makes me think of the lamp post in Narnia.
