White Wednesday, Meet Lucy

If you have been visiting my blog for a while, you might have seen Miss Lucy, (as in goosey) in some of my Dining Room photos. She has a nest in my wrought iron French basket that resides on my Dining Room table. She's pretty quiet and doesn't raise much of a fuss.





She's content to watch over all the sheep that congregate there also. Miss Lucy has seen better days, as she has lost the little plastic "eyes" that she once had, and the time she spent in the elements has caused her to crack and chip in places. After all, she is just an old cardboard decoy, that men have used as "bait" for their exploits. But she found a place in my heart and she came home with me about 2 years ago, to be given a place of honor at my table.


Whatever the season or the holiday,
she receives a new "floral nest"...



And a fresh ribbon with which she celebrates.



She is a slightly odd little duck that gives me great delight.
















 Here is to celebrating those things
that may seem odd to others,
(like an old beat-up cardboard decoy)
but bring us unexpected joy!

love,
Debra

  3. I have a Miss Lucy, also. I would have a flock of them if I could! I'd like my husband to learn how to carve some primitive geese. I'd be happy to paint them ... don't know why I don't learn to carve them myself!
