I hope you guys don’t think I’m Monkey-obsessed after seeing the photos from today’s post, it’s just that she always wants to hang when I’m in the middle of getting my shots. I figured since she was there, I’d pull out one of my favorite coffee table books and pretend to read it to her. The book is really a fascinating read. I first fell in love with the textured linen paper the pages are printed on, and then I noticed the spellbinding calligraphy and illustrations. It tells all about the history, the science, and the mythology of mushrooms along with the important facts of which are ones edible and which ones are poisonous. If you remember when I first got Monkey back in April, I said I was going to find her a boater hat by the end of the summer. I pictured a very regal portrait of her looking like a lady in a teensy straw hat adorned with a little white ribbon, but I wasn’t exactly sure how attainable that would be. I’m usually not one for dressing my pets (I think it’s quite ridiculous actually), but for some reason my thing for important-looking animal portraits got a hold of me! I found a little straw hat at Goodwill a while back, but unfortunately it’s always going to be a tad too big for her head. It’s cute to play around with though.
