The holiday season is underway, and I have already received a very special gift... a Sock Monkey!
My step-father's mother made him for me. Is he not darling? He was rather agreeable to a photo shoot...
...but I should have known better than to pose him next to the bean pot!
Honestly, I do not know if this is a bean pot. My maternal grandmother, Nana, had a bean pot that looked nothing like this in which she always kept candy. When I found this little pot at a flea market, I fell in love with its shape, color, and weight... it is heavy! I like to keep chocolates in it and I think of Nana and her bean pot every time I reach in.
Apparently, this Sock Monkey likes chocolate.
He still needs a name... Cocoa, perhaps?
