Show And Tell Friday...
Hosted by Kelli from Theres No Place Like Home. This Friday I am sharing this little picture of me when I was 6 years old. Holding a Monkey. Monkey's have been a long time favorite of mine. i always dreamed of owning a real one. I had always wanted a sock monkey, but out of all the stuffed monkeys I owned as a child I never had a sock monkey.
Until my 30th birthday. My sweet husband gave one to me. I love that thing. As an Artist, I had to take a picture of him and well , make an art piece out of it. My Favorite Sock Monkey.
My second Sock Monkey is a Vintage sweetie which I named Emilijha after my Latvian Great Grandmother. We made her do snow angels in the snow.
My third Sock Monkey is another great Vintage guy. Totally cute and in such wonderful shape. We call him Hodge.
And.. my fourth Sock Monkey is for sure the funniest looking character....Red. Here he is hanging around.
Okay... so I have a collection now...but still no real life monkey. Ireally don't want one anymore..I have enough monkeys in my life.
My son knows how much I adored these little creatures, that he decided to make them out of clay. He even went as far as selling them on Ebay. Aren't they sweet ???
