      Wonderful giraffes Jenni! I love them both:)

      His pose is great- It looks like he's really galloping across the Savannah- giraffes look funny when they run, sort of like deck chairs lolloping about (if deck chairs could run....)

      Judy I'm so happy you liked both of these, I always wanted a nice giraffe brooch but it was hard to find, and I'm glad to find a "friend" for the faithful giraffe box! Thanks for the sweet comment

      Ken it is a nice trinket box right, I semi-collected them back in the 80s-90s when all the companies were trying to copy Limoges boxes, and they made them better IMO back then. Thanks for the nice compliment

      Eileen Carnegie did a good job capturing a running giraffe right, only thing it's in kind of a twisty shape where you can't tell it has two rhinestone eyes, I tried to photograph both & it just wouldn't work. Glad you also enjoyed the trinket box, maybe I can find the CW collector in their search box, as I love them too. Appreciate the kind compliments

      Lauren, the giraffes DO run funny lol, it has to be that tall disproportionate body on those skinny legs, but they sure take off fast on the African plains, esp when being chased! Thanks for your great comment & cute imagery on the deck chairs

      Aw Phil that's so kind, you say the nicest compliments and I'm totally thrilled you enjoyed these giraffes

      Thanx Roycroft, I think giraffes are pretty cool too and really appreciate your great comment

      Many thanks all for the kind love

      Giraffes are always awesome, and these are wonderful Jenni!
      I love the action of the brooch, and the peace of the box :)

      These are awesome Jenni!! They go well together.

      Thanks Karen, I agree with you that there is quite a contrast with the calm giraffe box & the realistic running brooch (giraffes seem to always take off in a run in their natural habitat, they seem easily frightened). Always really appreciate your kind compliments!

      Scott, I wasn't sure these two would match well as I tried the brooch in different positions - straight across, the poor thing looked dead! - but finally got them to look harmonious, and very glad you liked them both, thanx for the great comment

      Many thanks for the love

      Many thanks Patricia for the kind love for this giraffe duo, one of my earlier combo posts which seemed to work well, I enjoyed enhancing a brooch with a figurine or glass animal of the same type - very glad you liked it!
