After seeing Nick's Zoo Line find and then learning about Robin and Blake's collection, I knew I had to find a wooden monkey for myself...but I never expected two for the price of one. That's exactly what happened though. I was scouring the listings and saw a pair of primates priced low and described as being in very good condition, but wait...the listing also had the Best Offer feature, so I submitted an offer for $15 less, and it was accepted almost immediately. (I also placed a bid on a lot of four that started at $19.50...two large and two small...but three of the four had flaws, so when the bidding got too high, I dropped out.)
Here are the two monkeys who recently joined my household. I gave them a little teak oil pick-me-up, and now they're all settled in my laundry room/walk-in closet. (That's the only room of my house that I didn't show in the reveal of my new "modernist nest," because it wasn't quite decorated/organized to my satisfaction. It's finally done, and photos will follow tomorrow.)
Zoo Line, do you think? Any information would be appreciated.
|These two have made themselves right at home on my chest in my closet/laundry room.|
|I like to think they've been together for quite a long time.|
|I love the color and the facial expression of this little guy.|
|And I love the indefatigable spirit of this pigeon-toed fellow,|
who keeps going, in spite of losing his tail.
