Duck Duck Goose

I created a vignette this morning with the last of the 4  prints that H gave me for Christmas.  

     I couldn't decide if she is a duck or a goose.     I did a little research and decided since her nostrils are closer to the top of her beak,   she is a duck.   Geese have nostrils closer to the end of their beak.    Geese honk and ducks quack,   but since he has been quiet as a church mouse,  I have to rely on the beak!

My Farmhouse vignette is on the pass thru between the kitchen and the family living/dining room    Needless to say,   with all the clutter on the pass thru it is almost impossible to pass anything from the kitchen to the family!

I have my new sink cover sitting on the pass thru today.    It's here a lot of the time since the sink is pretty much in constant use,   but it sure comes in handy if company drops by.   I just set it over the sink to cover any dirty dishes that I haven't had time to put in the dishwasher yet!

I have my duck print propped up against a assemblage of vintage sewing machine drawers.   You can see the drawers better in photo from the other side ,   it's the last photo in the post.

I borrowed one of my repurposed cuckoo clocks that was hanging in the entry way and hung it on the side of the Hoosier.   I found a very rustic piece of twin footboard in my stash and hung it over the pass thru.

Since this is the last of my 4 Christmas prints,   I'll give you a link to the other ones in case you missed those posts....


This is what the pass thru looks like from the family dining room side.

 My sewing machine assemblage that I have the duck print propped up against on the other side of the pass thru  is composed of 5 vintage  drawers.....a stacked set it the center,   one on each side of the stack,  and one in the front that is a drawer converted to a light

Be back soon!
