This Lil Piggy Went To Market

This Lil Piggy stayed home......



Anyone who knows me (and I know your just getting to know me) knows (yeah I said know again) that I adore pigs!  I can't remember when my love affair with the little pink cuties started...someone gave me one and then BAM....


They make me smile......



Even squeel when I see one I love......



Don't they look like they want to snuggle up next to you and be your forever friends??

Most of the piglets that aren't packed away from the move are housed in the kitchen....and I've gotten very picky with my pink friends.



These little porkers I bought as a gift for Emeril....I was going to a food network show and just wanted to meet Emeril and have him sign my cookbook!  I was so excited until we got downtown and hadn't bought tickets first and the line was all the way to East Bumble....needless to say we did not meet Emeril, have the book signed or give him the piggies...sigh....



So sweet.......

Little clay Oinker that my granddaughter made me with the help of Poppy Rick.



And these Lil Piggies went......wheeeeeee, wheeeeee, wheeeeee....all the way home!

These are just too cute. I think the one that your granddaughter made is so precious. I really like the three little piggies sitting in the dish. Emeril's loss is your gain!

Luv your collection of oinkers! I see Lynn from Happier than a Pig in Mud agrees! LOL Your Easter post with all your bunnies was so sweet. You have a great collection. :-) I especially liked the little "chocolate" ones. Thanks for your visit earlier today.
