...or rather monkee bags...ok, just the one...in fact, this one:
this is the prize awarded to me last weekend by the lovely monkee maker for my devotion to her awesome monkee blog! which, really, doesn't it seem like the present-giving should be the other way around?! but i would never, ever have come up with something this cool! a gorgeous handmade monkee tote, plus a little monkee notebook (for monkee notes) and some monkee candies! (ok, they are not, strictly speaking monkee candies...but they are really good!)
monkee maker kindly suggested that niece madeline might enjoy this present, and i am sure she is quite correct about that! ...but i think i might just have to hold on to it for a bit...you know, just until madeline is old enough to...ummmmm...safely handle a miniature monkee totebag...we would not want her to be involved in one of the many tragic toddler/miniature monkee totebag incidents reported each year, now would we??!
behold the bag, in its home, hanging from the bookshelves above my desk (this is the prime place of honor in the lauren universe, as we don't have a mantel!):
regard the cute monkee tag on the cute monkee bag:
it says "monkee maker" o'course! awwwwwwwwwww!
and lastly--almost my favorite part--monkee maker's monkee moo card with fab monkee photo on front and mm's info on back! (i would collect and trade these if they were commercially available!!! ...and you thought that pokemon thing was big...)
thank you, thank you, thank you, monkee maker!!!
