The Official Preppy Handbook

"Look, Muffy a book for us."

The Duck Motif

"The duck is the most beloved of all totems. The duck suggests hunting, water, Maine--all things worth thinking about. The basic duck is the mallard. The most common view of the duck is the silhouette, although the duck in flight runs a close second.  Three-dimensional decoys are nearly as popular and may appear as lamp bases, planters, doorstops, candlesticks, and paper-weights."

I am so excited with this chapter of The Official Preppy Handbook!!!!  I literally can't wait to take the pictures and do the post as I go around my house and think of all of the cute items I've been collecting that are so appropriate. Check! I pass this preppy challenge with mallard, duck and beak colors galore!!! I will have to sport my duck shoes next as I continue on--I have more ducks to share!!!  I have them all over the house plus, I'm a huge water loving hunting Maine girl.

  15. Oh, what a great duck collection! I have a few that sit on top of my kitchen cabinets. I used to have live mallards and Pekins in my pond, but some wild critter caught them, and I decided I didn't want to raise them to be lunch for coyotes and raccoons, so no more ducks on the pond.

    Fun post!

    Enjoy your evening.

  19. Ducks are my favorite! they remind me of the men in my family and often make me tear up remembering them. I used to have my grandfathers duck decoy as my doorstop when I was little and one night I got lost in the dark and stepped right through it.. DEVASTATED! Great post now I am in the mood for a little duck hunting with daddy
