Popping Up Pigs



I keep seeing this little piggy popping up everywhere. It’s a Harry Allen Piggy Bank to be exact. I read that it was molded from a real pig (don’t be alarmed, he died of natural causes….still a little weird). For some reason growing up I had a thing for pigs (wanted a pet one, actually). This might be as close as it gets.
Hope you are able to spend some of your saved pennies on something special this weekend!

    I love this pig! I was sort of obsessing over it yesterday on Cococozy. I love that photo.

    To be totally honest, that pig kinda creeps me out. Its amazing what popularity can do for something.

    How funny. I loved little piglets when I was young too – must have been a Charlotte's web thing! Actually, I wouldn't mind one of these on my shelf even today.

    I was wondering where he came from. Now I know!

    I came over via the lovely Dolfina. I am glad that I did. Oh La La Lovely!

    I'm on the fence about the pig but the rooms are great.
