Home Decor – Vintage, Shabby Chic, Primitive Wall Hanging
I really enjoy this new wall hanging, and although I use it with my cottage style, it could also be used in primitive, shabby chic, or country home decor. I especially love the black iron hanger, as well as the vintage crackle finish of the swan.
Recently, while visiting one of my favorite shops, I picked up this piece for a very nice “sale” price 🙂 Needless to say, it was my find of the day!
Not only do I really enjoy the color and the lines just the way it is, but, should you decide to find (or make) something like this it could be used in many different ways.
I’ve chosen to hang this piece right up against a wall in my family room, because I like the way the deep reds of the wallpaper in the background make the black & off white vintage crackle finish really stand out. In your home, you could use this type of piece in many different ways.
– In the opening of a doorway
– On the side of a cabinet
– In the top of a hallway
– At your front door
– On your mailbox
If you look closely at the picture, you can see that the swan is connected by a chain & hooks. You could have several different pieces to hang from these hooks. A few ideas could be; snowman, scarecrow, Christmas tree, flag, flower, etc. You could have something different for every season, or something as simple as your favorite sign text.
Here are a few examples;
– Home is Where the Heart is
– It’s a wonderful Life
– Merry Christmas
– Always Kiss me Goodnight
– Come Gather at our Table

Hello. I am writing in regard to the ornamental swan pictured in the story from November 10th, 2006 (frugally4u). Several months ago I saw this swan in a store, but decided to wait and buy it at another time. I visited the store today and they no longer carry the item. If you are able, can you please let me know the manufacturer of this item
so that I may search for it in another store. I searched a lot of sites today and was very fortunate that your site came up- that is the exact swan that I am looking for.

Too many compliments too little space, thanks!
I guess finding useful, reliable information on the internet isn’t helopess after all 🙂
I’ve looked around & found another piece just like mine. Not sure how much you were looking to spend, but if you email me, I could possibly pick it up for you & ship it out.
Hi, I was looking at the post hanger you have on this website with the swan posted on 11-10-06 I have this hanger with many different hangings but I can’t find who makes them or how I can finish the collection. My local store doesn’t get too many in and I’ve been collecting them for a year now. Do you have any information on who makes it or where I can buy them?
I have several of the hangings, flag, snowman, bunny, etc., but I purchased them from a shop in Va., and have since moved. Is there anywhere I can purchase them on-line?
Thank you and have a blessed day.

Here’s a website that I found MANY different seasonal flags to choose from.
