We are nearing the end of my Swan collection and I didn't know I had so many until I began photographing them for Show and Tell. I have a few odd balls left, some pictured below.
Painted beaks are rubbing off on this McCoy double vase, but I will like them just fine when they are yellow all over! The pair below is interesting, because the one on the right is an older Enesco, when it was still N. S. Co, and the one on the left is newer, made in Japan and was cast with a pieced neck seam. Some minor differences, but obviously a copy.
This little black swan is not marked, but i found a similar one that was marked and the ad read "A wonderful piece of 1940-50's California Pottery. Marked "Roselane 261" on the bottom. Approx 7 3/4" tall x 4" across body"

This is my only real set of dishes Mo, so I am not heading down that dangerous path like MOM.

A gallon of blackberries every day. That is todays crop. It's interesting that the flash makes them look somewhat red, because they aren't in natural light. I am picking blackberries every afternoon during the week and morning and evening on the week-ends. Do you want some blackberries? I have this compulsion to pick as many as I can. I do let the birds have the ones that are in the middle of the thicket and the ones too high to reach, but if I can reach them, I will pick them. I have to spray my arms, neck and legs with bug repellent, because they are swarming out there. It is hot, hot, and more hot. Why can't they ripen in October?

The face cleaning towelettes were supposed to give back $1 ECB all month, but they are giving back $2.99, which is their cost. There are also printable coupons for $2 off of a CVS skin cleaning product HERE making this a money maker. You can only use one coupon at a time, and there is a limit of 5 for this deal, so spread them out.
The Physician's Formula Mascara is $7.99 giving back $7.99 ECB's this week. You may have coupons for this also.
