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.

Zilch. Zero. Nadda.

I really feel like I should blog.  


I got nuthin'.

I haven't thrifted anything.

I haven't been anywhere.

I really haven't done a thing.

What about you?

Have you thrifted anything good?

Or been anywhere fun?

Or done anything at all?

'Cause.  I got Nuthin'.

*Because all posts need a photo - Photo of a bright orange formal at the thrift.  
Perfect for The Bean's future wedding.  He lurves orange.


  1. that is a gorgeous dress, tho it would clash with my hair! i haven't been buying much, new or old except some art supplies. Been making some Valentine goodies tho.

  2. It has been so long since I have thrifted I think I may have the DT's. so I craft.

  3. Oh Shara, if you've got nuthin' I'm in the minus numbers. This broken ankle is really getting old!

    One more week and I may get to WALK with the boot on. Still won't be able to drive so it's going to be a while before I can thrift.

    The most exciting thing that's happening today is someone is coming to clean my house - she was here 2 weeks ago as a Christmas gift from my girls and did a wonderful job. Now to pick up some of the clutter so she can actually clean!

    I'm hoping your thrifting sense tingles soon!

  4. Shara...thank you for voicing my thoughts out loud...I've been away so long I don't know if I can ever get back to my poor silent blog! I agree with Lynn...if you've got nuthin' we're all in trouble! Happy Wednesday anyway!! *e*

  5. January has been like this for me also. Struggling to find something to blog about. The thrifts haven't got a darn thing and I'm cutting back anyway so now what do I say?? I'm hoping my blogging mojo returns soon. I'm blaming it on January! hugs, Linda

  6. Sending you treasure that you can blog about as I thrifted/estate saled all of it. ;)
