Black swan pins and pink sachets

How I would love to have pet swans again. I miss "my" swans

Welcome to another Pink Saturday hosted by the wonderful Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Please click on her link to visit more pinkness posts:

Swans and ballet are intertwined in my mind. The ballerina Anna Pavlova (yes of the dessert fame) loved the role of Odette in Swan Lake and she even had a pet swan.

J'adore swans and jewelry! I have been a customer of QVC 's Joan Rivers Collections since early 90's Her costume jewelry is well made and well priced. When I saw this black swan on her web site I waited anxiously till her QVC visit began and bought the pin online before she even showed it on the air. I was right to do that. It sold out in 20 minutes she barely had it in front of the camera.

I still have not seen the movie I waited for so anxiously- - Black Swan--everyone told me it is too violent and disturbing for me. I so wanted to see the dancing and costumes. Maybe I will rent it one day and speed through the gory or disturbing parts.

Black or white I love all swans and for now this wonderful and glittery pin is resting on a pretty pink sachet created by Roberta at Whispers from the Past until I attach her to some tote or jacket collar.
Lots more pink posts if you check earlier posts this week

Have a Pink day!


  1. I love your swan! Beautiful post as usual. Happy Pink SAturday. Definately go see the movie I am so sure you will enjoy it. Grace xoox

  2. Happy Pink Saturday Marie Sweetie...
    What a gorgeous share today. Your black swan pin is absolutely breathtaking. I love it. It would brighten up just about anything that you added it to. I can certainly see it on a jacket or scarf, even a bag would be delightful with it attached. I have never seen one before.

    I love the photo of Anna cradling the pet swan. How beautiful their faces look entwined in such beauty as one.

    I too had wanted to go and see Black Swan, but that is what everyone told me, don't go it is very violent. Do we dare? If you go, be sure and let me know. I haven't been brave enough myself.

    Hope you have a beautiful weekend sweetie. Again thank you for the beautiful share. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  3. What a lovely post. I saw the coming attractions for the movie but it would be too graphic for me.

  4. I just discovered your lovely blog. I'm just new into blogging & have just finished off my own blog on fashion & interior design.
    I had a lot of fun putting it together maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.

  5. This looks so lovely. I look forward to you stopping by at My Dream Canvas:-)

  6. I think swans are some of the most elegant creatures on the earth...maybe that's why I love Audrey Hepburn, with her swan-like grace and fortitude...
