Welcome to Knick Knack Retrospective! Every Monday, I will photograph one of our many, many knick knacks. Some of them come with a story, others do not.
The first participant in my Knick Knack Retrospective is Monkey. Monkey is a ceramic monkey I have had for almost 35 years. Monkey came to me as a 10th birthday present from one of my dearest friends. Monkey was painted by said friend at one of those ceramics places way back when and was given to me because I LOVE monkeys. Monkey started out on my desk in my childhood bedroom and has traveled to each new home I have had. Monkey currently resides in our china cabinet surrounded by many other knick knacks. I love Monkey because a) I love monkeys and b) he reminds me of my friend.
