My Little Love Affair


I found out this last year that I adore giraffes. With a passion. It came out of nowhere and just swept me off my feet one day. And I was hooked.

But the thing is, my apartment is in no way decorated to fit a giraffe. Not even a giraffe calendar or a small giraffe shaped candle. Believe me, I've tried!

When I spotted these two adorable giraffes at an interior shop, I couldn't help letting out a big shout and rushing over to cuddle! They were so adorable!

But alas, it wasn't meant to be. And so after the cuddling and a couple of minutes of just gazing into each others eyes, sighing over the unfairness of it all...I reluctantly walked away.


But secretly this love affair still continues...

Maybe a photo on your wall will fit in your house

Oh my. Maybe I’ll do it. Depending on how things work out this month I would really love a couple-meter tall wooden guy like this.

I can identify with your passion. I must have had a premonition as to my future height even when I was in early elementary school. I love the patterns on their coats. Their regality. Kindness. Gentleness. Uniqueness. Just had to have a stuffed animal version. It meant a lot when I got one. They must have been rare those many decades ago when I was given one by a thoughtful and persistently searching (loving) mother.

I wish there was some way you could figure out to accommodate a giraffe’s presence in your own life. You both might do each other a lot of good.

Amazon Japan has this poster. Maybe there are other posters elsewhere. A poster is flat and can be stuck to a wall with removable harmless putty, but posters lack a certain cuddle-ability factor...

A giraffe pillow? Or here.

A personalized red giraffe blanket with your own name here. Or one without your own name here.

Giraffe cup. Or here.

I really hope you can find your own giraffe that suits you and your living situation some day. Have you though of any names?

They are cute....

Take a look at my other blog at www.gunnwhite.blogspot.com

If you click on the link about giraffes, your drawing might end up in a book..... quite an international collection. Do take a look.

It occurred to me that if you put a giraffe in your room you could label it as a member of the Honolulu Zoo. Yes, there is a bit of Africa (etc.) in Polynesia. You can see the resident giraffe names at the bottom of the page.

I have to admit they are rather cute giraffes! :D

Thank you everyone for all the comments and great suggestions! I'll let you know if I manage to fit a giraffe in my room somehow :)

Have you thought about having them as temporary visitors to your room?

Tall Gary said...

Right. You are wondering where that is above. Mark it on your “must visit” list:
