What is a monkeybox?

When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.

Review Time

I've done several reviews for products at CSNStores.  And now, I have been named one of their Preferred Bloggers.  As well as that honor, they have offered to let me review another item just for you.  CSNStores offers a nice selection of bar stools, cookware and other fine products in their stores.  Did you know they have over 200 on-line stores???? 

What shall I reveiw?

I like this PINK Jewelry Box.

And this PINK Pie pan.

I don't know what I will review.  Maybe you should stop by CSNStores and have a look around. 

You never know what you will find!

Thanks CSNStores!
