Hello to all my blogging friends...I am sharing with you today some of my swans that I have collected. I just love swans they are so graceful and just seem to glide in the water. I have collected them for a while now and most of them have come from thrift shops, since I like the older ones. Our home is old and we still have one of the original bathrooms, have not remodeled it and probably never will, we like the old tile in pink and black so, therefore, it seemed like the perfect home for our swans. Have you ever seen Swan Lake? It was composed in Russia in 1875-76. It's the story of a Princess named Odette who was turned into a swan by a sorcerer. I wish I could see it sometime. This is my favorite swan, it is musical and came from GW.

These pictures were taken by my invalid husband. As you probably have seen before in another post, pictures of City Clocks, he likes me to drive him around so he can take pictures of things that are of interest to him. Here are a few pictures of frame homes, taken from the car, which also interest him. He wonders who lived there years ago and in his own words, I am ever on the search for homes from a bygone era. Here are a few examples that caught my eye.
