"...Come out from
the attic Sugar!!! "

" OKIE!...Let's leave the 'Attic' & travel to
Nairobi - East Africa for now Darlingsss..."
.
....Don’t you want to have breakfast with giraffes? Would be just fabulous! …Yes-yes-yes!!! Certainly they won't talk about the ugly war nor the depressing economy! I think they would prefer to gently inspect the homemade jam and warm toast.

Well…~Welcome to Giraffe Manor, CHARMed*...
.
~Take a trip*...shall we...

.

.
Absolutely surreal... isn't it?!
The Giraffe Manor is an elegant, personally hosted, small exclusive hotel, famous for its resident herd of CHARMING* Giraffes! Ooohhh...really hope to visit this magical place one day...
.
...Can't seem to get enough of this CHARMING creature
~so here are More...Enjoy!

...I'm loving this tall & lean novel
by J.M Ledgard

...LENORENEVERMORE was inspired to do another quirky illustration
after looking at this very tall model :
.
its neck—longerrrrr...than Gisele Bundchen's!!!
~Sometimes I wonder how the food travels from its mouth down the long throat...to the stomach & out from 'where the sun don't shine'-anus!(errr...am I alone here? Wondering about this looong dark journey??!!)
.
" Whahaha......"
~this is so WRONG yet so RIGHT!!!
"sniff-sniff... I can smell weekend* coming!
Just half way there darlingsss...am I bad or am I bad?!"

I want to live in Giraffe Manor - how awesome! And I have to say, that cutey of a dog dressed as a giraffe just made my night- soooo cute!

Diana said...

this is such a great way to start a day!

drollgirl said...

THIS IS SO BIZARRE!!! you come up with some of the wackiest posts, and i love them!!

and i even like that giraffe dress!

erinwalker said...

That would be so cool! I wonder 2 things though:
1) Do you think the giraffes ever drool on the table?
2) Would it be a complete fashion faux pas for us to go dressed head to toe in luxe giraffe print?

janettaylor said...

WOW! So lovely! :)

XoXo

Gabbi said...

Adorable... I love your illustration! :)

akka b. said...

Giraffes have the biggest hearts of all land mammals. It's true! - and after seeing this post, so easy to believe.

sarah said...

Great post, I'm smiling:) OMG! I really have to go to giraffe manor, they are the most adorable animals!!!
I agree with Diana, 'cos it's early morning now in my time zone.

Anthony said...

This is fantastic! With the giraffes in the windows, it seems like it's right out of a Pippi Longstocking adventure...
I actually think that giraffes are quite beautiful and majestic animals, but have you SEEN their tongues?! Those creep me out. And I wouldn't want to wake up with one drooling over my bed! Of course, some people (Ladies...) might use that sort of thing to their advantage. Ahem.;)

Charlie said...

Wow that is surreal, can you imagine sitting down for breakfast and a few giraffes poke their head in for some nips?! Too funny. I love the dog costume:-)

trishiekoh said...

Mujer imperfecta said...

THE PARIS HOUSE said...

I am obsessed with Giraffe Manor, I have wanted to take my kids there on Holiday, but heard it may not be safe??? It is definately on my Travel Lust list of places to go. I hadn't thought of it in months thanks for the reminder!!

Frau said...

Love all things Giraffe, could be why I married a tall guy! Art work is great, love the shoes and purse too.

muchlove said...

Awesome selection of giraffe images. I love the prints by the Invisible Circus.

Kwana said...

These photos are so funny. Don't think I'd breakfast with a giraffe but I love the fashions.

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

How cool is that? I'm booking my trip right now!!

Jan said...

Surreal is right! (but I love your illustration.)
I'm going to stick my neck out though and say I don't really like them much (their house at the zoo really stinks)!

clorivak said...

I WANT to go there sooooo bad. I will share my toast and jam!!! They have the prettiest eyes and those shoes, those shoes....gasp.
I am ferociously in love with this giraffe post Lenore. Standing Ovation,dahlink!

hahaha...I never thought of the long dark journey from the mouth and out the tushie...heehee...that would be quite the ride. Maybe you could design a roller coaster based on that venture.

Have a wonderful day sweets!

Keith said...

I used to work with someone who had a passionate hatred of giraffe print and I think of her every time I see a giraffe!

photojoy said...

Such a fancy way to spend holidays in a lovely guest house with giraffes. Your blog always brings me some surprises and excitements in my daily routines. I enjoy it.

Helen said...

THOSE BRACELETS! I *love* them.

And your drawing is adorable!

amy@flyingakite.blogspot.com said...

awwwwwwww. this is so beautiful, and inspiring. really. i love animals, and giraffes have always held an extra special place in my heart. they aren't even "typically" cute. they don't look cuddly, or soft, but to me, they are SOOO "aww" worthy, and beautiful creatures that need to be loved more often/


love your blog, such a cute and interesting ideaaaas. stay wonderful

XOXO

Dooder City said...

I love Girafffes! So much! I had a giraffe printed swim suit when I was two and I loved it.

I would love for the giraffe's to share some crackers with me while I read my book in a Jane Austin era dress:)

The Seeker said...

I have something for you on my blog.
Please go and check it.

xoxo

And I’ll be back…

garygoh said...

Elizabeth Marie said...

Giraffe Manor...YES PLEASE.

Only you could post about Giraffe's and make it fabulous.

I think I'm going to dress up my lil pup like a Giraffe. She'll hate it! :)

The Cottage Cheese said...

Giraffe Manor must be heaven. At a great safari-type nature preserve thing in Texas, a giraffe walked up to the car, bent all the way down, and ate from my hand. It's gentle little nuzzle from it's mouth to my hand is one of the best feelings ever. Giraffes have always been my favorite wild animal!

Awesome Sara said...

where can i pick up a giraffe??? maybe he can eat the fighting couple that live above me??

Sher said...

What a neat vacation!

Denise said...

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Wait - is that hotel for real? No freaking way.
