Monkey Collar

A few days ago, a package came in the mail for Kelsey!  She was so excited and had to stick her nose into the package before I could even see what it was.  

Aunt Marylin made Kelsey a special monkey collar  Can you see it even has a little monkey button on it?!  The work on it is absolutely beautiful; Aunt Marylin is definitely talented.  Thank you, Aunt Marylin.

Looking a little skeptical in this one because...We got the results on the contest voting and Kelsey had placed 7th out of 24 for the number of Facebook "likes"  and there were going to be 13 winners (1 for the cover, and 12 for inside the calendar).  We thought we had a good chance because that voting was supposed to have a "strong influence" on the judges' final decisions and Kelsey was a strong contender based on voting.  They did not choose Kelsey.  In fact, they chose some photos with way less "likes" than Kelsey's.  Kelsey was the only one to place that high in the contest and get skipped over.  When we looked at the results, it just didn't seem right.  We are okay with losing (we don't win a lot actually), but it was so misleading to say that voting was such a big part when it became obvious that it was not.  I asked them to remove Kelsey's photos because I do not want them using her sweet picture for their own gain when they are definitely not being fair.


  1. Kelsey...That beautiful, feminine collar is perfect for you. The little monkey speaks to your playful side. I am so sad about the outcome of the calendar contest. Kelsey is the ideal calendar girl. Boo.

  2. Love the collar. How cute. That sucks re the competition. Their loss. Have a serene Sunday and get some of the big easy in today.
    Best wishes Molly
