A barrel of monkeys

Voila, les monkeys.

I absolutely love the buggers. And I fully believe that the cuter the socks you start out with, the cuter the monkey you get. But I guess their appeal isn't always immediately obvious. I posted these monkeys on my etsy shop ( ages ago but redid the photos today and sold one immediately - thus proving the significance of sharp, interesting photos that really showcase your items. And because I need to get some kind of enjoyment out of it too, I posed them doing all sorts of stunts. These are their attempts at somersaults. Ms P. Dot up there had much more success than Sir Stripes-a-lot. I also received a lot of compliments on the photos themselves and it was suggested that I do a series of sock monkeys going about their daily lives (which are very busy indeed!) and sell the photos just for fun. That being a fantastic idea, I have every intention of doing it. You will be hearing more about these photos as they transpire
