I am a Lucky Duck

I am a lucky duck
March was a lucky month for me, maybe because I'm Irish.  Not in a monitary way, I didn't win the Power Ball or Mega lottery or anything, and I didn't even lie to anyone at McDonalds and tell them I did.  However in blogland I was a lucky duck in March.

First Little Miss Maggie sent me some typography goodies.  They were wrapped with care and all pretty.  Blogland sure has some thoughtful people.  I'm a lucky duck to call them my friends.  You need to stop by Maggie's blog and see all the vintage ledger pages she has, all the great ideas to use them and how she prints onto tissue paper from her computer printer.  See those little hand towels?  They are too cute to use!  I don't know yet what I will make with my stuff so for now I have them by my computer to admire them....  Thank you Maggie, I love it all, I'm a lucky duck.


This is printed tissue paper!

Inspiration waiting to happen
It was a crazy month for this lucky duck.  Seems I was sending the top secret address of Bliss Ranch to someone every week.  Next I won a barbed wire wreath from Shannon at Rusty and Redone.  Real barbed wire.  I asked her if she had to claim it as a weapon at the post office!  Stop by and say hi to Shannon, she is a sweet gal and a crafting machine, always doing things for other people.  I put the barbed wire on my front porch temporarily so I didn't harpoon anyone with a barb.  I have something in mind for it, but have to wait till spring is sprung here, so for now it's fine on the old metal thing on my porch - that I don't know what it is.  Anyone know what that galvanized thing is?  Thank you Shannon I love my deadly weapon, I'm a lucky duck.


Barbed wire is perfect at a Ranch
If you are counting that is TWO gifts this lucky duck received in the mail so far.  But I'm not done.  Kristin from My Uncommon Slice Of Suburbia dropped me a note that I won her giveaway of a vintage mini french tabletop cafe chalkboard from Daune at Cottage In The OaksYou're kidding-me?  I love leaving comments on blogs and many times don't even know I'm entering a giveaway. The best part of winning on Kristin's blog was discovering Daune's blog.  Pop in for a visit at both blogs you won't be sorry - great ideas and two wonderful ladies.  (You see a theme here - blogland is full of wonderful people!)

Several of my kids had to say.... mom you know you spelled happy wrong right?  Duh, didn't think I had to explain "hoppy" with ears below it...on Easter.  The chalkboard is on my counter now and the menu is still on the other side.  I think it will next be used for my son's graduation in May.  Thank you Kristin and Daune, I'm a lucky duck.

More?  Yup.  There is one more.  Karah at The Space Between had an idea called the Pass It On Project.  She got some other great bloggers involved, and I was one of the recipients of a gift from Linda at It All Started With Paint.

What a clever use of paint chips.


She passed on something that is very valuable to me as I am someone who can't sew....... pillows.  She had the gift all wrapped, and cute tags (which I saved it all to reuse when I do my pass it on).  The care and kind note, I tell you, this blogging stuff chokes me up.  The pillows are sitting on a chair in our bedroom waiting for me to decide who I will pass one on too along with the gifts I make.  That's a hard decision to make, so many wonderful blog friends. Thank you Linda, I love my pillow.  Yes, I am a lucky duck indeed.

And what's up with all this lucky duck quack?  Well somewhere in the middle of teasing another blogger about making a duck scarf for her kids' two ducks, a duck came to live with us.  (I'd say be careful what you wish for, but I didn't wish for a duck!)  One of my son's friends bought one and I guess it wasn't working out at his house.  So the day before Easter he asked if my son could duck sit.  Needless to say Klous now lives with us and my daughter bought him a friend.  Clyde.  Now those are a couple of lucky ducks!

  18. Oh girlfriend you are a lucky duck......and a good friend to so many of us. Yes you do deserve to have all those fun, wonderful things especially thye ducks (big smile.) But they really are adorable. Looks like we'll be getting some chicks. They are the cutest thing and wonderful to have if they are hens to lay eggs. A few years ago we bought 5 baby chicks. They said that one out of a hundred is a boy. HA! Try two out of 5. Oh those roosters were beautiful but I sure felt sorry for the hens!! Unfortuantely we have too many varmants around here and over time they were gone one by one. Broke my heart. But I'm ready to try again :) That is in getting more chicks!
