Here We Go 'Round the Merry Go Round

Whether one says merry go round or carousel, it's a fun, childhood ride.

I love the different animals and always wanted to find an interesting one to ride. 

A zebra.

An elephant.

A ferocious lion.

Even better, a giraffe.

If you don't want to ride the merry go round, you can always eat it.

Or just put it on the top of the cake.

Even if I can't ride these horses, they are useful for drinking, ringing and decorating.

I had such a hard time deciding which of my giraffes to choose today that I decided to post both of them. 

Giraffe #87 is part of a collection my father gave me. He has the zebra and there are also a lion, tiger and elephant.

Giraffe #88 is an ornament. When he's not hanging on a Christmas tree, he hangs around the house.

  1. I always loved riding the horse on the merry go round because it went up and down. :)
