2 little pigs.....

You will recall C. recently ordered a new elephant bank for her soon-to-arrive grandkid, and I made a bunch of banks, including my first Godzilla or dinosaur bank, plus a different kind of elephant bank. They are all down there.....well, anyway, the wife was going to a twins baby shower yesterday and asked for 2 of the piggies. EXCELLENT idea. The sitting piggy I make here is my own design, whereas the standing one is a very common item with potters, and my bigger ones will have a cork in the snout. Anyway, I had a ball wrapping the piggies and made the card down there also, with some eurotrash change which looks pretty, for good luck. I retaped the coins after that pic, tape on BACK looks better....have an awesome Sunday!

Oh gosh, here is a favorite. I remember during our honeymoon in '93, me and the wife were staying in a castle on the Maine coast and there was a billiard room and she was always beating me at pool and we had MTV on...not having a TV of our own...and loving this video.....

Pigs are such cute animals in art but not so much in real life. I happen to like them though. We had pigs when I was young and I played with the baby pigs.

Love the pigs love that song. I actually just recently uploaded some Green Jello (Jelly. Weren't they told they can't be Jello eventually? Duh.) to my work computer. Someone brought in the old CD!
