Mr. Menace has been working out of town for two weeks now. After the first week he told me about an antiques store that he had been into and about some brass swans that he saw there.
After the second week he came in the house with these.
They stand fifteen inches tall and 17 inches long.
They are pretty. And Unique!
He wants to put some acid on them and tarnish them.
I kind of like them shiny.
But I’m not sure what to do with them.
Mr. Menace suggested that I put them outside. And I might. Eventually.
They aren’t something I’d stop and take a second look at. And that’s what is intriguing me about them now: How I might can use them in my decor.
I need inspiration. What do you think? Do you have any ideas?
I’ve been doing some research trying to find some pictures of rooms with brass swans in the decor, and found this:
MAD MEN!! I drool every time I see Don Draper…. Take a look at the article by clicking on the picture. This brass swan planter was auctioned off and brought $425-$550. (I guess they had two.) Mine are much bigger than the one shown.
