I think these duck bookends were the first non-essential purchase we made when we moved to the US ten years ago. They were living in a groovy vintage store/vegan cafe in Pittsburgh’s South Side (Patti, you know where I’m talking about!), and they’ve been with us ever since. Here they’re posing in front of books from my favourite Australian crime fiction author, Kerry Greenwood. 🙂 Incidentally, I’m off to bed to continue reading the latest Phryne Fisher book of Ms Greenwood’s :).
