What do you collect?
The reason for asking has to do with an exhibition I went to see last weekend at Hå Gamle Prestegård, showing a number of different collections. I saw stamps, coins, silver items, buttons, magazines, films, thimbles, spoons, old photos, postcards, cameras etc.....
This is a snapshot of a wall with drawings collected from people all over the world ....
If you or someone you know wants to participate, the drawings might end up in a book.
Read the story behind the one million giraffes, and see what started it, and how it is going.

Very nice. Our youngest daughter is a teacher and this reminds me of the walls in her classroom!

That is a lot of giraffes. I don't collect anything if you don't count portraits of people.

I like the idea of it. 1 million seems exhaustive, but I bet there's always one more . . .

What a a cute concept! :) I used to collect hippopotamus stuff (I had hippo bookmarks, hippo keychains, hipoo mugs, etc) but I stopped. I like giraffes too!
