Swans in silver



Oh how I love swans in any form.. These stunning silver centerpieces were on Ebay recently. Beyond my price point but so lovely.The single swan is Buccellati silver a fine old silver company. 
I saw swans at Versailles a few weeks ago in one of the big ponds there. Quite a few of them and we fed them some bread. 
I dream of a swan sleigh gliding over the frozen ice sort of like the scene in Anna Karenina only a much fancier sleigh. If I win lottery I will have one made just for ice sledding What an extravagance that would be!! I am sure Marie Antoinette would have loved one  she did love sledding.
Have a Pink day!
