Monkeys sharing the craft room with new friends


New friends

As I mentioned before I haven’t been making as many monkeys. My craft room has been filling with lots of weird and wonderful things. Funny it started off as just vintage and my own things but I am finding my self drawn towards the teddies and dolls to sell. Some have been in bad condition and I’m bringing them back to life to play another day. I wrote a blog about my love of dolls but always collected teddies for a long time but have been in the wardrobe for years . My sock monkeys have pride of place in the bedroom and craft room as they are special.

My monkeys

But my teddies have hardly been played with except my grandson taking them out to look at  them they are like new. I gave a lot away a few years ago to the charity shop and just kept my favourite ones.  I thought perhaps I can sell them not all at once perhaps one at a time. I found a very large golden teddy st Michael marks and spencer teddy bear really chunky not much space for him so thought he could go first.

My golden teddy

sold him quite quick to a lovely lady who also collects teddies and she was very happy ! She said he just fit on the shelf  with her other teddy friends. So he went to a good home and is now on display as  he should be. I am not sure I’m ready to sell the rest but rescuing them and making like new sounds more appealing.

Bringing me great joy collecting things like mr men and Care Bears and found some lovely teddy figures. So my little craft room is filling up.

Who remembers trolls well times gone on since my day ! They have been reinvented a few times but brought back memories of one I had when I was younger.

I think my craft room is filling with lots of lovely toys.and things.  So who knows what I will find  or what I will keep.

Visiting Scarborough with the monkeys handmade business

Adventures with the MONKEYS

I have always wanted to go to Scarborough so why not take the monkeys. I have been making some nortical sock monkeys and wanted to take pictures with them by the sea that was the plan. The weather has been lovely  and ideal opatunity. I haven’t give these monkeys names yet but I’m sure They will have some connection with Scarborough .

The monkeys found a new chair to sit on

The monkeys love adventures, watching the boats and posing for the camera.
