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.

Swap is Closed

I will be emailing the swap partners today.  I won't clutter up the blog with the details since there are only a few of us participating.  I need an email for you Gayden, please.  Jenn - I'm sorry that I couldn't contact you before now - there isn't an email associated with your account.  Since there only a handful of us in this swap, I think we will have to keep it in the US.  I am SO sorry!!!!  I hope you can find a swap partner in your area.  Maybe next time?  Thanks for understanding!
