Magazines and Sock Monkeys

We recently blogged about magazines that featured country primitives and antiques.  We mentioned several publications that we missed because they had ceased publishing.   We also was pretty vocal about Country Living that still is in publication and was once considered almost the Holy Grail of country style magazines.

In our blog we stated that we had become weary of the bland, whiteness of Country Living.  We noted that it had been going on for years so we and others have cancelled our subscriptions.  Today we received our last copy in the mail.  It is Country Living's July/August edition.  We present their latest cover to you and we rest our case.

I also have written about sock monkeys and even did an update the other day.  Well here comes another sock monkey report.

Our dear friend Trudy (thank you for reading our blog Trudy) saw the blog on sock monkeys.  She was in very recently and found this sock monkey which had gone undetected in our Mall.  Trudy quickly purchased the sock monkey and gave it to me for my birthday.  I love it and I love Trudy!  Thank you Trudy.  Here is the new edition to our sock monkey family.

Before leaving work today I noticed that my new sock monkey had teamed up with the sock monkey that resides in our Mall.  You know the one...the one that makes me nervous!  I don't know quite what to make of this new team.

All I can say is that when you come to visit us at the Little Antique Mall know that you are being watched by a couple of sock monkeys.  Always in the background, always present and always watching are those sock monkeys.  

Think about it.


  1. I have always loved sock monkeys and these two, while being cute in their own ways, are kinda sinister. Thanks for sharing them :D

  2. Can I have one of the sock monkey babies?

  3. Rita, I know they do look a little sinister don't they?! LOL

    Lori, their first born is yours!!
