Vintage Shopping~

Over the weekend, I was shopping around to find vintage chairs for my breakfast room.
Well, couldn't find the right piece for the right price (picky-picky-picky me!).
Plus, I can get easily distracted as usual...
~this time by her FACE!
.
~QUACK! Just take a look at her face...how cute is that!
.
Couldn't help myself~ she must simply come home with me...
..
I think she is quite happy in this spot for now...
.
" Home sweet home Miss Ethel! "
errr...doesn't she look like an 'Ethel' to you?
 yup, I certainly give names to all my furniture!~LOL*
I think her 'quirkiness' would add some charms to my den now...
.
~XOXO*

Is that a vintage duck? Does one sit one it?

At least you can sit on her.
I suppose there could be more floating around the country - or maybe she's a one off?
