We love this so much”

This wonderful little duckling takes pride of place on top of our piano in our dining room. Of all our ornaments, this is the one I look at and treasure the most. It has a warmth and happiness about it that touches the heart. Only something made with loving hands can create this feeling. Thank you so much Anna, we love it!
