And here's what the package contained:
My very own Barb original sock monkey! She makes these little guys and is setting up a shop and she actually had a drawing that I WON! Could've knocked me over with a feather!
And look at this face! Absolutely darling. Right now he's sitting on a dresser in the spare bedroom that we keep Miss B's toys in. I'm not sure if this will remain "his spot" or not, but I do think I want him in this room so that when B is here she can love on him.
He sat in the entryway for a bit on my antique sewing machine cabinet, but I'm not so sure the Raggedy Annes enjoyed having him around. ;)
Regardless of where he ends up I know he'll enjoy it here. Because once Brooklyn gets to love on him and carry him around by the tail...or arm...or wherever and he starts to look a little raggedy himself, then he'll know that there is no place like home.
Barb, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
ps - see the shadows around sock monkey in the last picture? They are caused by the natural light coming in the front door! I do love me some sunshine! :)
