Dummkopf! - Duckies and a bit of Treasure

I came across a challenge over on the Bellaboo site and was inspired to scrap some photos taken on holiday last year.  Only when I had completed my layout did I realise I should have used products they sell in their shop, which to be fair to them is the whole point of the challenge which I missed!!!  Needless to say there was nothing on my layout I could find in their shop so note to self - read the small print in future!!  Anyway it's not all bad because I am actually very pleased with what I ended up with. 

Who could resist such cuteness!!

An update on our little duckie visitors.  They are still coming daily and sometimes stay the whole day til dusk, come rain or shine!  They are so tame coming right up to the back door for scraps and not minding my lens at all!  Today just Mrs is here, not sure what's she's done with him but he's sure to have cheesed her off so she's escaped for some peace and quiet.  Here she is on the pond, which is in need of some tlc when we get some decent weather!

And last but not least here is a little something I found in the charity shop today. 

I was so happy to find the Falcon Ware sign underneath the £2.50 price tag and have managed to age it to the 1950's.  My husband asked me what I wanted to buy someone else's junk for when I gleefully showed it to him.  I wonder if I can find someone else's pond to sit in!!

Anyway I think it is going to look swell in my dresser which is currently undergoing a makeover and  looks like this right now:

An after photo will be along some time but first I must swap over those bottom slidey doors as it wasn't until I looked at this photo that I realised they have been closed incorrectly - probably forever!


  1. Great layout and well done on the charity shop find! I love the duck shots :)

  2. so cool to have Amy Tangerine comment on your blog. And I love the layout - especially the hexagons of course.

    Great jug ( would be so much funnier if I could write great Jugs!)

  3. Ok, firstly I have to say, I'm not surprised you're happy with the layout ... it's gorgeous. Next ... I burst out laughing about the comment on "someone elses junk" ... oh, how many times have I heard that said to me LOL.

    And next ..... really! ... what's wrong with the dresser, why a makeover on that gorgeous dresser? :)

  4. Loving those seals and the way you've scrapped them. The ducks are gorgeous and I have dresser envy!
