Just Ducky!

The weather has been beautiful with temperatures in the 80s,  so  I  spent a few minutes at the Duck Pond .  Watching  them brought a few thoughts to mind.

Happy as a Duck in Water



Fallacy:  A  Goose Thinking he is a Swan





Take Wing and Fly






Maybe they were Holding a Sunday Afternoon Preaching Service



Others were Engaging in a little Afternoon Delight  (if the female can actually be delighted having her head held under water!)



Then, there were the  Voyeurs 


Don’t let your Feathers get Ruffled



Behave like a Duck.  Keep Calm and Unruffled on the Surface, but Paddle like the Devil Underneath



Hugs, Honey

Be sure to Register  for the Giveaway , open Worldwide which Ends  3/27

Giveaway – Value to $99 Plus Free Shipping

I was contacted by RAMSIGN,  a small Danish company that specializes in manufacturing and selling classic enamel signs (house signs and house numbers)  based upon original designs and techniques.  Environmentally friendly,  their  signs consist of iron and porcelain enamel.

They offered to sponsor a Giveaway of a house number sign using from 1 up to 5 digits with a value of up to $99  plus  free shipping worldwide so everyone can participate!

Signs are so popular now (outdoors and in) and these will work with any style home, be it vintage, traditional  seaside, or modern.

  Be sure to check out  Ramsign  for  their amazing variety of designs and types of house signs and house numbers available.

The Metropolitan is a classic design in  white on blue that has been a standard in street signage since the days of Hans Christian Andersen. It is  simply European sign tradition at its best.




The Highlander elegantly compliments most any setting.  Black text is set-off elegantly on a white background, resulting in a visually easy-to-read sign.



Arrowhead is a rustically designed series, combining the fine European sign tradition, revived in classic dark green. The Arrowhead is advantageous if you are seeking a casual yet classic look.



The Lighthouse series is  a charming design inspired by nostalgia of the seaside, awakening   feelings of carefree walks on the beach, beautiful sea shells,  and long summer evenings outdoors.  The characteristic rust red house numbers  have their origin in the small fisherman's village Skagen, located at the Northern tip of Denmark.



The  Engelhardt series is a tribute to the Danish architect and designer Knud V. Engelhardt (1882-1931).  The house numbers are the cornerstone of a signage concept Knud V. Engelhardt developed and delivered in 1927 to the Municipality of Gentofte, north of Copenhagen.



The Rules are Simple 

1.   Be a follower,  New or Old,  and  leave a comment that you are a friend.   (mandatory)

Stylish Blogger Award

I was recently  awarded the Stylish  Blogger Award by three very  creative and Stylish Bloggers:  Tete  at Beyond the Garden Gate,   Cindy at Dwellings -The Heart of your Home  and Tammy at Type A.   I appreciate the
award and accept it with gratitude!


The rules are to  reveal  7-8 things about myself that I have not yet revealed.  Since I’m not very good at this at all,  21-24 things would  be out of the question.   It’s difficult to come up with 7-8 that you might vaguely find interesting.  But, let’s try.
1.  I never, ever  forward chain letters, emails (who writes letter s    anymore).
2.  I have not yet told my daughter-in-law,  sisters,  nieces or other close family members or friends that I have a Blog.   Q: Why?  A: Don’t know.
   3.  I am a totally recovered brick and mortar retail store owner.
4.  I am really  a good listener.  You hear a lot of stories in the retail business.  I could write a book !  Seriously!
5.  I’m really a brunette under all these highlights.
6.  I married   one of my high school  sweetheart.  Just kidding, Sweetheart.   You were the only one.
7.  I’ve never watched Oprah.
8.  I’m holding back.  A  girl has to save some mystery for the future.

I have decided  to pass the Award along  to everyone because I think you are ALL Stylish Bloggers! 
Until next time,  Honey

Found Nest

To find the universal elements enough; to find the air
and the water exhilarating;   to be refreshed by a
morning walk or an evening saunter;  to be thrilled
by the stars at night;   to be elated over bird's nest
or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards
 of the simple life.     John Burroughs
