The quilt of the matter is,we got this quilt at the thrift store. Not bad for $18.99! Mike and I liked the colors so much we brought it home! It is a homemade quilt for those of ya'll wonderin. Made with the old double knit fabric of the 60's. Ya'll know,It's when polyester made its appearance. That'll give ya'll a little history lesson on the textiles of the day. Ya'll know I'm a folkart lover.
Mike and I just had ta play with the camera. We started lookin around ta see what would look good in the photos. Ya'll better work! I must say it's all lookin good on the colors!
Another Teddy Bear has graced our door jam. He was pretty dirty upon his arrival. Mike gave him a good wash up! He turned out lookin like new! Hangin in the carnival good! Must have just been sittin around since the 60's! I have ta tell ya Possums,Mike can work a Teddy Bear! If it needs love,he's right there with a needle and thread and a glass of wine. No Teddy Bear task to big or small! Many need new stuffin! The stuffin of the 60's always looks like something they swepted up off the floor somewhere in an old factory. Course back then it may well have been. All I know is our dogs were very attracted to it whatever it was. If that's not enough ta scare ya'll,I don't know what will. Polyfil has taken the place of the Nasty.
This just goes ta show ya'll Monkeys are hams in front of the camera! Bubba
Howdy monday mornin Possums! I'm here in The Sock Drawer and got some more kind of craziness ta show ya'll! This here's a Dragon cake Mike made on his job. Cute thing ta start the Monday mornin blog off with.
He's ready for his close up.
This here is my logo sign drawn and painted by Mike. Got a bit of a glare to it.
There! That's better. I laminated it yesterday. It's hard ta get a picture. But anyway,ya'll get the picture.
I got my Mardi Gras mask on and ready ta party! Bring on the parade! Happy Monday Possums! Bubba

The hearts have all flown out the window now that it's all over. I must say that all of Mike's cakes were sold completely out! Love was in the air over his sweets! That is perfectly ok.
Mike and I had the most wonderful day off for Valentines. He worked on his own V-day present to himself. It was finished and we will show you what it is here in just a mintue. He had two Teddy Bears on the cuttin table that needed finishin with their refurbishin. They are now done and have joined the ranks of all the other Teddy Bears in his collection. It was a fun day for us both.
Here is Mike's V-Day present to himself.....
Now. If ya'll remember the old rubber faced monkeys from the 60's that held a banana in his hand.They usually had rubber white shoes. Yellow and black fur. Mike just happened to find the face,hands,ears and feet of a rubber nature,on ebay. He was curious about if he could make this monkey. Was interested in usin the Monkey brown work socks for his body. This one is a little different in the fact it has sleep eyes. They close when ya lay him down. We were in love with his feet! They are so funny. I was quite pleased at his cunnin artistic ability ta pull this project together. The face and feet and hands sat around here for months before he got the courage ta give it a try. Once he started the project,he was wonderin why he hadn't started it sooner.
Have a great Monday Possums! Bubba

Happy Valentines day Possums! I'm sure your sweetheart will enjoy your snuggley wuggley,snookum,kissey wissey widdle Valentines. I'm snuggled up in my Sock Monkey slippers Watchin Alice in Wonderland starin Tina Majorino. My what a talented actress she is. And what better way ta spend Valentines day! To many ladies for me ta deal with,so I hide out.
Lots of stuff ta cover on this lovey day. I certainly don't condoan any sort of Valentine wish for the apaulin A.K.! In fact I hope her friday the 13th continues on 4-ever! Please excuse me Possums for such a horrid thing,but some need puttin in their place. Now,back to our pleasentries.....
A card and a heart decorated pair of Sock Monkeys are certainly a cute way to love ya'll's sweetheart. Some might think not,but we're not studyin them today. A frown and a wrinkled nose up in the air ta such nonsense! Off with their heads!!! LOL! In the spirit of Wonderland mind ya.
There is always the Sock Monkey art portrait on hand for the art lover. Would look lovely hangin over the fireplace. Add a few candles and one would consider this very romantic! I in fact know the temp will come down ta 35 degrees this evenin. A roarin fire should hit the spot.
Be mine Possums! Well...at least until this day is over. I shall hope ya'll will be my friends always.
And please don't faint on my account. It's merely an invitation. Certainly not an order or demand for that matter. Love thy Possums. For it tis the 11th commanment!
Ms. Megan says she'd like ta stop in for a glass of wine in the up comin weeks. I shall keep a glass chilled for her.
A bushel and a peck of roses for my blog Possums on this day of red and pink love day! Aren't they beautiful? The Lord is truely an artist! At least I didn't have ta paint them red as in Wonderland. They have taken on color of their own! The roseyness fills the air!
Let me offer ya'll a pretty heart cupcake for a Valentines treat! Where are my manners for not offerin earlier on in my Kisssey day blog! How rude of me. Do forgive me Possums. A tastey treat indeed.
My human,Mike, Has one of the best jobs around. He gets ta make these holiday wonderous treats of choice! Aren't they pretty? One should be honored ta receive such a delectible and delicous morsel!
Perhaps I could interest ya'll in a strawberry mousse delight? Made with the finest Ganache in all the land! Stirred gently into the creamiest chocolate ta ever touch ones lips!
I heart you Possums! Each and every one of ya'll! I shall send my finest Valentines wish ta each and everyone of ya'll!
Hugs and Kisses Possums! Not to much chocolate now. Bubba

It is the middle of the night here in Nashville. The rain ya'll ask? We only got a sprinkle so far. They are callin for thunderstorms for Wednesday. So what does one do in the middle of the night? First off,the reason I'm even up is Mike has been on the over night shift. He is off tonight,but he has to stay up so as ta stay on this schedule. We decided ta take a walk around the neighborhood ta photo the place. Not ta mention it's a nice night for a walk. The weather is warm with a slight breeze blowin. The smell of rain in the air.
Walkin bye,I saw this cool mailbox. It was screamin out ta me! So I had Mike take my picture there. For the time bein,nobody lives at this piticular address so we weren't disturbin anybody. It was just a fun thing ta do. Post me baby!
Walkin through the nightly street enjoyin the peace and quiet. All folks are in bed sleepin. The streets are void and empty of people and cars. The street lamp light glistens on the lightly dampened streets.
Sometimes the simplest things can make the most interestin photographs. It all depends on how ya end up lookin at things.
I must caution ya Possums. It's all about the Picture for me an Mike. We are always experimentin with our digital camera. Tonight is about the things we never would normally stop and photograph. The most common things we pass in everyday life,but never really pay that much attention to. Well...unless it's a street sign ya have ta pay attention to.
Bein a ham in front of the camera is my handicap. And yes! Pun intended! I suppose it's not against the law ta merely stop and take a picture of this handicap parkin spot. I only parked my butt on it. Not the car. It might be a funny thing to issue me a ticket for butt parkin!
We did swing on over to the park.
So arrest me! I loittered! LOL! And on private property! Twas a fun thing ta do when no on is lookin.
Good night Possums! Bubba

Greetins Possums! Here we are on a Tuesday afternoon. The weather has been really warm this week. Rain in the forecast for today. It's overcast,but no sign of rain as of yet. Everywhere I go,folks are gettin ready for their romantic weekend ahead. Hearts and flowers swirlin all around. Everywhere ya'll look,red and pink colors of the Valentines day season. Seems as if we just got out of Christmas and here we are doin Valentines day. Already 2009 off and runnin. Next stop St. Patty's day. Year after year we go through the calendar of holidays.
Ellen has been sent her very own Sock Monkey. I personally thought it was wonderful. The woman who sent it to her got to visit the show. That was really special. I'll bet she was so excited. She took some of her Sock Monkeys and they were sittin with her in the audience. Pretty cool. I took the liberty of showin ya'll two more of her creations.
This must be the chef of the banana puddins! Sounds like a tasty treat a Sock Monkey chef would prepare and take great care and love in it's preparation. A banana puddin like no other. A flavor of explosion to the pallet. I fear that if he faced the Top Chef guys,their eyes would roll back in their heads and fall out of their chairs. They would truely savor the flavors!
What Sock Monkey community would be complete without it's Clergy? I have so enjoyed surfin the web for the neetest Sock Monkey goin's on. Love sharin them here with ya'll.
Stay tuned for my Valentines blog. Bubba

A pleasent Sock Monkey good Mornin! How ya'll doin this cold,cold mornin? Lots goin on in the Sock Monkey world as we know it. I'm here ta give ya'll the 411! Got ta keep my Possums posted. Gives A.K. somethin ta nosey around in. But we ain't studyin her anyway! A short stubby middle finger has the answer for her. And thats all I have ta say bout that. Now that we got the skank part out of the way,we can go on to some Sock Monkey fun!
For those of ya'll whom don't know it,there are many Sock MOnkey fabrics out on the market for ya. I see those crafters mouth waterin at this very minute. I think the proper name for them is "Sock Monkey Moda". Here are a few. I'm sure there are more.
Aren't they great? As ya'll can see,One of the fabrics,I'm wearin. And what Sock Monkey would be complete without an emsemble made out of at least one of the fabrics. These all come in many colors. I'm quite sure ya'll will find many craft projects ta do with these great fabrics.
I know I have shown ya'll this dress before,but here is how it looks on a real person. I'm willin ta bet we won't see this on the red carpet anytime soon. I can't imagine what Joan Rivers would say bout it.
This here is the Japaneese Version of the Sock MOnkey. I really think someone forgot ta tell them we are suppose to be made from socks.LOL!
Ya'll have a pleasent Wednesday! Be happy ya'll don't have skank nosey'in round in your business. Bubba
