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 Heart Day

We've had our Little Lady for eleven years.  

But, I just spotted this heart on her side a few weeks ago.

She has to lay just a certain way before you can see it.  

Whenever I see it, it makes me happy.

Hope you have some happy in your day today.

Happy Valentine's Day!
