This week’s theme is ”Drink” and some feathered friends are enjoying a quiet winter’s drink in the Enchanted Maze and Gardens, Victoria, Australia.
Enjoying a sense of peace one stitch at a time
Here is my choice for this week’s “ABC Wednesday” – brought to you by the Letter “M” and scheduled posting by WordPress … Mandarin Ducks (love, love, love this photo!!):
And this week’s “one I prepared earlier, stitchy/crafty content” is a beaded sampler from Mill Hill:
Thanks to Annette posting her piccies of Halloween prize draws, I spied a little rubber Vampire duck in one of the photos … OF COURSE I had to run straight to Ebay to track one down myself … so the following is all on Annette’s head!
It’s not identical to Annette’s one, but it comes along with other Halloween friends, and I just aodre them!!! 😀 (If you’re in Australia and you want to buy your own, check out this Ebay seller.)
And these others just decided to come along for the ride … haha. I intend having a regular little seasonal display on my side table next to my stitching chair throughout the year, and what could be better than adding a duckie or two in each display?? Do I need them? No, I don’t … Do I love them??? Oh Yes, I do!!!! Where ducks are concerned, I refuse to ever grow up 😀
This week’s theme is “Favourite” and I’m being boring and predictable by choosing my favourite duck shot – there are plenty of Favourite items I could have chosen, but I’m away from home and running out of time!
Then, for a change, is another of my favourite photos – this one of a bee on lavender:
This week’s theme is “Beautiful” and I had loads of choices of photos this week – the word “beautiful” evokes so many feelings …
After debating between many floral and scenic photos, I decided on my very favourite subject, and a photo I haven’t published before. Of course this beautiful creature is my favourite on earth, and one reason for my blog name … this little duck was taken on the shores of Lake Emerald, Melbourne. In fact, I may just have to crop him and use him for my blog header at some stage hmmm … 🙂
