Monkey Giggles

Hope is one of the most sweetest bloggers you will ever meet. Hers is another blog I thought for sure I had featured........sometimes I work so fast........I forget what I'm doing. :)

Monkey Giggles.........She is a Jill of all trades. She home schools, sews, decorates, hangs Christmas trees upside down from the ceiling and collects anything vintage...........especially suitcases.

I help notice that she's going through something challenging, and thought how a few of us heading over to see her blog might cheer her up......lift her up....you all know how you love comments and visits.........it's a blog thing........we all have a little bit show dog in all of us. Please leave Hope a message to lift her spirits. It's a good thing.
She's a creative being who loves to make funky beautiful things.



Or she finds something and adds her own flair. She even shows us Before and After shots........it's like crack for bloggers.........before and after shots......don't you think?

Simple lamp........
Don't even ask me how she did this one. I gotta go back and see......


Or this chair. Needs a bit of support............I'm not sitting in that chair.......No one likes to think their butt will sink through.........not a good look.

She fixed that. Love the denim.............she loves denim too.
How about another.........I don't think this would hold me either.......the one below............

But now.....ahhhhhh.....scoot over.





She made all those cushions!



I know it's not Christmas any longer, but I thought you should see this. That..........That is creativeness. I wonder if she got the husband eye roll on that one? You know the look........well at least I do anyway.

I always adore a woman who not only leaves me comments on my blog AND has my blog listed on hers.........but a woman who decorates with vintage luggage! I only have 3, but she apparently has an obsession........I mean collection.In her spare time..........she bakes. This Strawberry shortcake has me really craving summer. Or what about these chocolate cherry cookies................UNCLE!Head on over, give her a TCB bump and make her day. You guys ROCK!

Don't forget to check out Tokoni.com......tell your own story.

On my short list of things to figure out is how to make a chandelier that has enough pizazz that it doesn't look like I made it! I can't wait to learn about that project. Thanks!

I'm a new follower to your blog and just wanted to say I love the idea behind it! How she did that lamp, yeah, I must go find out asap. I'm highly impressed (confused...) but impressed :)

You have the best blog and I have seriously been following forever. I've never left a comment, because, I'm intimidated. Anyways, I've changed my blog-stalking ways. I'm off to check off other blogs. Thanks
