Pink Swans and Tiny Flowers

Today being Pink Saturday over at How Sweet the Sound, I thought I would share some little sweeties I found at a recent garage sale.

Two little swans masquerading as pitchers! Or vases! Totally cute with tiny flowers!

They are handmade -- I used to do ceramics and the tell-tale signs are there -- stilt marks on the bottom! 

The glaze is the palest of pink and, since it pools in the design, it sort of self-antiques. Lovely!

The glaze didn't cover well on the inside of one of the spouts, but that's OK. It's still a little sweetie and it won't matter at all with some tiny flowers inside! Wish I had some tiny flowers to put in it now, but my flowers are few and far between (I must do some planting) and the irises that are blooming are just a tad too huge for these little swans!!

Tiny flowers like these....

in Noli's sweet little girl hands

They will appear in my Magnolia's Attic vintage shop but I'll get to enjoy them for a while!

They are sweet and I'm so glad I found them.

 Hop over to How Sweet the Sound to see some more lovely pinks!
