Today's Go Here Thursday theme is swans! I have a couple of really good ones for you!
First, if you live in, or will be visiting the Atlanta area, go see The Swan House at the Atlanta History Center.

Nearby is the Swan Coach House, a restaurant, gift shop and art gallery all rolled into one. Lunch is available at the restaurant for a few hours daily, and the gift shop features a ladies boutique, an amazing jewelry selection, and home gifts. The Swan Coach House is also a popular venue for weddings, receptions, private events and afternoon teas.

Also go here to the Franz Porcelain website, where you can browse unbelievably beautiful pieces of porcelain art like this Swan Teapot:
(Franz Porcelain also has a peacock pattern!)
|The teacup is my personal favorite!|
And finally, keeping with the theme of swans, here are two of my favorite harp pieces:
"The Swan" from Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saens, performed by harpist Keziah Thomas. Go to her website (link above) to see a full list of her repertoire.
The Theme from "Swan Lake" by Tchaikovsky, performed at two tempos (I couldn't find any information on the harpist.)
