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.

What A Baby

While I wait for the storms to come (and as I write this it is SUNNY out.  WTH?) I will show you the BEST Halloween mask ever in the history of Halloween Masks.

I present to you - The Big Baby.

This is how I feel today.

The Breadman - you can see the eye holes here.  

Big Baby Selfie.

 Temper, temper.

This was hiding in my bed one day.  



You too can own your very own BIG BABY HEAD from Wal-Mart for $9.96.  



  1. I am still laughing at this mask! I have never seen anything like it before! I might just have to buy it. How cool for selfies. LOL!! Have a great day Shara.
