Well, well, what a week! On Monday morning, a duck was sitting calmly in my planter box. On Monday evening, I discovered a circle of white eggs. Since then, my neighbours and I have been monitoring the duck action that’s right outside my front door. I’m from Toronto, so drop me into a big city, and I am happy. Nature…nature is still pretty foreign to me. I was initially freaked out by the mom duck, but we have survived our first week together! I know her routine, and we each have our space. I’ve given the planter box over to her, and I even added a sign so that others know there’s some important business going on. I think the duck conversations with my neighbours have been entirely amusing! It makes sense, then, that today’s post revolves around the ol’ duck!

Happy weekend, everyone!
As you may recall, last week I hosted an amazing giveaway sponsored by Glenn Dixon Home by Korhani Home and Caviar20.
Canadian designer Glenn Dixon
Today, I get to announce the winner! But before I do, let’sÂ do a bit of a review, shall we?
Glenn Dixon’s designs for Korhani Home are inspired by nature, and this white marble carpet is an example of nature at its best. Just look at how marble is harvested (via Jennifer). Here’s the marble rug (the Stonefield) in place at Art Toronto’s VIP Lounge last week:

Finally, the winner of theÂ Glenn Dixon Home by Korhani Home is:
Lucky number 54…aka Kristen…who left a comment and a tweet!
Kristen thought that Caviar20’sÂ Hans Wegner Cigar Chair and the Harold Town “Toy Horse #54” 1978 print would pair nicely withÂ the rug. I think it’s pretty cool that the print is labelled #54 and Kristen’s entry number was 54. Wild!
Congratulations, Kristen! Look for an email in your inbox soon!
Thanks to Caviar20, Korhani Home, and Glenn Dixon Home by Korhani Home. Thanks especially to Troy and Andrea.
We had our first snowfall of the season this past weekend. Light flurries began on Friday and while I was walking to my car after work I noticed a few snowflakes landed on me and stayed long enough for me to snap a couple of photos. This snowflake, in particular, caught me by surprise as it is shaped like a star.
