This week's challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil is:
Vintage with Distressing and Lace
and guess what? This is the second time I have used this image~ so proof that it can be done! :-)
Again I am using a "free form" style of paper patchwork. I thought it went well with the distressing theme. :-)

A few of you have been asking about my ducks. They're doing pretty well. Fibby, my crippled duck, continues to amaze us with how he gets around and manages to keep up with the others. As you can see from the picture below, they're all growing up fast.
These two pictures are of our penned in ducks. We also have four "free range" ducks. At one time we had over a dozen but predators take their toll ~which is why these ones are still in a pen.
My turtle tally is up to 29. Over the weekend (some of you already know) a snapping turtle got one of my white Pekin free range ducks and injured her horrendously. I nursed her all day Friday but she died in the afternoon.I was so upset I redoubled my turtle trapping and caught about 8 in two days. But they've got wise to me and I haven't caught anything but a mud turtle since.
The craziest thing is that Saturday you would have seen me with our huge outdoor grill , grilling chicken and turkey. Why is that crazy? Well first of all, I'm vegetarian. And I wasn't even cooking it for company or my pets, but as bait to catch turtles. yes, something was definately wrong with that picture!
But one look at the sweet faces below and you would have been doing the same thing.
