I bought a box of vintage straws for my straw collection. They were swan brand.
When I put away my Christmas decorations this year I mixed up some of my regular decorating displays. My corner cabinet that keeps my ivory pottery got a new look. The honeycomb mushroom and the feathered swan (which actually contains trinkets..like that SARPRISE ball) have always lived here. The swan looked lonely, so I gathered up my other swans and now they are swimming together.
A pair of lovey dovey swans.
I really like them all clustered together in this cabinet. My one of a kind swan rack is made from vintage pieces. I did not make it, but bought it this way. I was told the swan figures were actually intended to hold drying lingerie.
I am always changing things up on my kitchen windowsill. Right now a trio of pottery swans sits with a pot of tiny daffodils.
I found this plastic swan last year at an estate sale. I gussied her up and use her for display at some of my shows.
She was originally a planter and has a hole drilled in her back. You can fit a strand of white holiday lights through and nestle them inside of her. At night she gives a gentle glow when turned on. A magnicent night light!
This crazy swan came in a big bag of vintage plastic flowers from an estate sale. I did not know she was in there, but I could not bear to throw this goofy handmade swan away. She lives high on a shelf in my studio.
Always something to share...happy day!
