While I was in Bali earlier this year, I fell in love with the sweet little Balinese ducks. They waddle upright through the rice paddies in long lines, quacking all the way. Occasionally one might fall down a slope away from the others and will quack loudly until its friends come to help it!
So when I found some handmade wooden Bali ducks at a market in Seminyak, I just had to have them. I love how they are so rustic and each has its own unique character. I was worried that we may not get them through the strict Australian customs, but we declared them and they were fine.
Last weekend, I put up a 'Lack' shelf from Ikea for my ducks to live on. I had to cut the shelf so it would fit into the alcove in my wall. This worked fine and the cut edge is hidden by the wall.
