Vintage Monday: Wooden Giraffe

We found this little guy at Uptown Modern, where we were doing our customary credenza search (no luck again).  I love his little ears and the graceful slope of his nose and legs.

Here he is perched at our little entryway nook that I keep reworking (if only I'd get to the rest of the house!)  The mini parsons desk finally went on sale and I was happy to snap it up to replace our $3.99 stand in table from Goodwill that we spray painted.  I think it fills out the space better, the drawer is handy for keys and such and there's more room for our little zoo to expand!

So far, the zoo consists of the giraffe, a stone elephant from Bali and love birds on a vase by Whitney Smith.  I forsee some heavy recruiting in the future for more critters!
