In case you missed my Swan Addendum, be sure to CLICK HERE and find out what’s going on. Because y’all. Brass Swans were evidently cool in the seventies!
I’ve been doing some online research, desperately trying to find something interesting to do with our new brass swans. I have Googled, Ebayed, Pinterested and found nothing. Most similar brass birds that I have found are much smaller. These that we have are large and won’t sit just any ole where.
But I’m not giving up on the world wide web yet. I have decided to take them around the house and yard and pose them in different places and take some pictures. Maybe these pictures will strike a cord with one of you and YOU, my friends from all corners of the globe, will find me the perfect idea!
So, here we go!
ON THE FRONT PORCH:
I do like how bright they are on the porch. They really almost sparkle and bring quite a bright spot to the area.
IN THE ENTRY:
While they fit nicely on the entry stairs, they don’t add the bright spark of light here like they did on the porch. But I do think they look nice with the wood box, flowers, and hat that sit at the top of the landing.
IN THE HALL:
I just recently moved this bench to the hall from the Ice Castle Room. This bench belonged to my Grandmother and I’ve been searching for several years now, for its proper place in the house. I think I might have found it now. So I placed the swans here and they obviously needed a vignette. It’s a narrow hall though, which limits items that can be used here. I don’t want Mr. Menace running into my decor in the middle of the night!
So I hung the cross from an existing nail just to get ideas and I really liked the way the raffia and the burlap look with the swans. But it’s not perfect and I will continue to look for something fitting to hang on the wall.
It rained all weekend and so I didn’t get any to take any photos outside but for now, I’m liking last display the best. What do you think?
