This is a pretty 'Elephant Ear'! Where did you get it? It almost looks like you spray painted it silver! But I know you didn't! Just Kidding! I want some of those!

Thank you sassytiger, it's my favorite EE. Silver paint, lol. It does have a metallic sheen all over. I got it on ebay this spring. As a matter of fact, I think there's one listed there now.
