bananas

monkey
remember a few fridays ago when i posted all those monkeys? well ... ta-da! the inspiration behind them is here. our monkey painting by lila graves arrived safe and sound. i love him. look at that face! tripper and i saw this painting at the trinity school art show, spotlight on art. we didn't get it there, but we couldn't stop thinking about it. we were able to contact the artist through the school and she shipped it to us. yay! he's so cute and is definitely keeping me company while i work from home. lila's other monkey paintings have names like bulah and claude, but for some reason this little guy doesn't ... any suggestions?

Love him!!! Hmmm...I think the name will probably just come to you after looking at him for a while :-) Enjoy!

Fun picture!

I've enjoyed reading your blog for several months now and wanted to finally comment! I only recently created a login/blog site and yours was one of the first blogs I wanted to comment on.

Your posts are always so refreshing and fun! Thanks Holly!

What a great piece! How wonderful to add it to your home.

With the collared shirt he needs a serious name, like Marvin or Eugene. I would love to see where you hung the painting - it's so cheerful!
