One of my favorites is a wooden animal collection that is now more than 30 years old.
It's a fairly small, quaint, manageable one.
There are just eight animals and two guardsmen!
I love the tall necked giraffes and the graceful gazelles, the fierce-looking lion, the rhino, and the trio of elephants!
They are all so dear to me.
They traveled cross-country with us when we lived in Arizona for more than a decade and moved back with us when we returned to the east.
Below is a fellow I call "Ol' Smiley."
Sometimes the animals spend time in a box in the attic----until I "discover" them again and bring them downstairs.
Once again, they are marching on the fireplace mantel for awhile.
WHAT, IF ANY, IS ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE COLLECTIONS?
