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.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! 
May it be a happy one, a safe one and a tasty one!

I have one last decoration to share. 
Which Thanksgiving item is special enough to get to be placed under the glass cloche?
Why, a milk carton Mayflower from the Bean's Kindergarten days, that's what!

Happy Turkey Day!


  1. Awwwww. :)
    Maren made a pinecone & feather turkey this year in kindergarten. I think that may end up under a cloche at my house for years to come.

    Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for YOU, my friend!

  2. Those are the best decorations...the ones from the kids!!

  3. Ahhh.....how sweet! Enjoy your day and Happy Thanksgiving!
