For the love of Monkeys.

The title of this blog says it all really. I have a love of all things monkey. I have fond memories of watching the program "Monkey Magic" in my childhood and going to a spider monkey sanctuary where they were trying to save some very rare species from extinction. I guess my love for them started way back then. I hope you enjoy my selection for today.

Every good article should start off with an all time favourite item and this monkey from TheDevilsWallpaper is one of mine. I gave one of these gorgeous monkey pants magnets to a very good friend of mine for Christmas and he loves it too. His very words to me when I asked him if he liked it was "Pure Genius!"

Wouldn't all those suited and booted business men you see commuting into the cities every day look so much more exciting and interesting if the carried a sock monkey with them like the man depicted on the front of clothmothclothing T-Shirt? Stop being dull all you pinstriped suit wearers. Get yourself a monkey!

Susarto has titled this little simian as "shifty - the monkey weirdo". He's called Shifty because he sells used cars and apparently is not to be trusted, hehehe, but he is just so cute! How could anyone that wears their heart on the outside be shifty?

This pendant from bencandance says it all. Monkey Love! Made from Polymer clay, this cheeky little monkey would look great hanging around your neck.

I know a Gorilla is an ape and not a monkey, but I saw this picture and loved it so much I wanted to include it. This was drawn and painted by Sarah Pittman. I'm in awe of the amount of texture she has captured in this picture. I love his nose most of all but the fur on his forehead is also amazing.

Cirrusskooter has created this pin depicting 2 of my favourite things. Sporks and Monkeys. The inventor of the Spork was a genius in my eyes, so how could I not feature it? Cirrusskooter also prints this wonderful design onto bags and T-shirts.

Have a great day all and keep on monkeying around!
