Well maybe he's quacking and not laughing, but whatever he's doing, he is very cute! I picked him up at a local Flea Market last weekend. This duck planter is from McCoy pottery and was produced around 1951. He still retains some of the paint which was cold painted over the glaze.
If I had more room I would keep him, instead he and the books below are all going into my shop. Goodbye little ducky, I will enjoy you while you are here!
This book is titled "Somebody Saw ...." by Adriana Saviozzi. Vintage 1962. This book has many cute illustrations throughout. It depicts animals doing the most unusual things!
Here is another book that also has a nature/botanical theme. It also seems to be similar in color. Maybe I am being drawn to the yellows because we have a string of gloomy days forecast for this week. At least we will have some sun by Friday (the weatherman promised)! In the mean time, these happy images will have to do.
The book "Apricot ABC" by Miska Miles and beautifully illustrated by Peter Parnall, depicts the demise and rebirth of an apricot through the view of the animals and insects that encounter it.
Once again, my funny, yellow duck!
Sorry, I just can't resist saying this.....
Hope your week is just ducky!
