Show and Tell Friday #1

I love me some swans.

I am not sure how this started. I was finding McCoy pottery back in the early 80's and loving the pastel colors. The swans just started showing up in my collection with everything else, but now I have so many they have their own space. Actually, they have outgrown this particular space, and I am trying to decide where they will be moving to next. The one to the left of the center blue vase is all little sea shells. I think it has become my favorite, but I still love the tall McCoy ones in the back.

See everyone else's Show and Tell Friday and maybe add your own!

Very nice collection. I love seeing the various things people collect. It is interesting how a collection can just "start" and have a life of its own.

I love your swans, but as I look beyond them to the perimeter of the photo I see lots of 'stuff' thea looks interesting. I'm thinkin' "Ha. A woman after me own heart." I look forward to seeing more.
