St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner, and while I don’t generally celebrate the day or do anything out of the ordinary, it doesn’t hurt to spread some wishes of good luck around this time!

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!
Before I could barely even string a sentence together, my mom taught about Swarovski crystal. I know, right?Â She tells me stories of going to the Swarovski factory in Austria when I was quite young andÂ buying pairs of SwarovskiÂ animals. There was always a pair – one for me and one for my sister, she said.
She hasn’t added to her collection in quite some time, so this past Christmas, I thought I should spoil her. I picked up aÂ couple of sweet little animals to add to her collection. Swarovski‘s growing collection isÂ amazing…as is my mom’s!Â Here’s a peek into her collection…
a pair of crystal squirrels
a pair of bears
a pair of bunnies
a hedgehog (this one might be my favourite!)
aÂ kangaroo (my sisterÂ brought this one back from Australia)
