I received an Easter gift of a vintage swan holding some delicious chocolate eggs.
This new addition to my collection inspired me to gather all of the pieces which are displayed throughout the house and form a bevy of swans on the living room mantel. (Note: I had to Google “group of swans” to see what it was called.) They range from a wooden candle holder …
… to a small planter with a Dutch girl …
I love them all, but I’m particularly fond of the pieces that are the kind that were found in the dime store in the 1930s-40s – the kind my mother, grandmothers and aunts would have had in their homes.
I love the large bulb bowl ….
…which my daughter keeps filled with beautiful arrangements made from simple grocery store bouquets.
My usual TV/knitting spot is on a couch facing the mantel where I can enjoy my special bevy of swans.
