Swan Song

I don't officially collect swans, but I do think they're beautiful and graceful. I have heard that in real life they are quite the nasty bird! Here, today, are my not-so-nasty swans!

This first one my Aunt Rose gave to me a few years ago. It's an outdoor decoration, but I don't want to ruin it so I keep it on a stand in my purple bathroom. The sleeping fairy comes out, and don't you just love the way the swan keeps a loving eye on him?

Some might not call this a swan, but I do. It's a vintage watering can, which I got for a deal on eBay because the handle has been broken and reglued. It's just a decoration for me.
This last one I picked up at a thrift store about 5 years ago. It's heavy and appears to be good quality, but no label on it. Just the right size for my coffee filters!

I love the watering can and I'd have to say it's definitely a swan! :) I like the one with the angel sleeping inside it too.

I enjoyed seeing your swan collection. How precious that one is keeping an eye on the sleeping fairy. It's hard to believe that swans are nasty. They are just so graceful and beautiful. laurie
