Giraffes

 

Meant to make you smile

 

The folk art giraffes have been popular as decorations both indoors and out.  Most are carved from found wood; cedar, fir, maple and oak.  Some are painted with exterior latex paint and can be left outside.  Outfits have been painted on some of the giraffes.  They are painted with acrylics and would be best kept out of bad weather; most people keep them inside, or bring them indoors during the Fall.
