One of the best-known children's tales, The Ugly Duckling, tells of an little "duckling" who doesn't look like the others, who are all very surprised when he grows up to become that most elegant of birds, the swan.
On one level, this fable illustrates the deceptive nature of first appearances and teaches us that true beauty grows from within. Swan, in teaching us that we all have inner grace and beauty, teaches self-esteem.
Swan symbolizes grace and beauty on many levels. It is associated with love, music, and poetry. In Roman mythology Swan was sacred to Venus, the goddess of love. In Greek tradition, this bird was often pictured singing to a lyre. More fun info here

The kitchen is the Hub of the Home and I wanted to get it finished… some-what first..
I used my own vintage crystal knobs, with a 6-pull value pack, oil-rubbed-bronze-finish, from Target.
For less than $40.00 and my husband’s quick install, we achieved an instant face-lift.
I want to re-do the cabinets someday soon..so far we put in the subway tiles, and carrera marble..
Saving my pennies..
Have a lovely day!
