So I got all my ducks in a row for this card (more or less) which started me wondering where this phrase originated. I thought it was a relatively modern one but apparently not; the first known usage of the phrase appeared in print in 1932. But the internet cannot agree on its origin at all. Does it come from bowling? Carnival games? Or even from actual ducks? The debate could rage on.
What’s indisputable is that the Barnyard Babies stamp set - the source of the ducks on this card - is a really cute stamp set. It’s also pretty safe to say that this card is not my best work, but the blog needs feeding and the cupboard is bare.
Talking of bare cupboards, our kitchen is being removed this weekend and we’ll be living on takeaways and cereal. If you pop round from Monday onwards, we’ll even struggle to give you a cup of tea but hopefully we’ll have all our ducks in a row and some sort of makeshift kitchen set up in a week or so.
