When pigs fly...


This little piggy went to market...


This little piggy stayed home....


This little piggy looks happy....


...under a little glass dome.


This little cast iron pig was a gift from a friend many years ago...

I thought the little guy deserved to be showcased, after years of sitting on a shelf going relatively unnoticed.


So for the time being, he has a place of honor on top of the dining room jelly cupboard...
With any luck, he'll subliminally remind me to watch what I'm putting into my mouth since he's sitting there, big as life, in the dining room.... Because after a big Easter dinner of spiral cut ham & potato salad (not to mention desserts), and then munching leftovers for the next couple of days, I had a 1 lb. weight gain this week (groan...)
(glass domed pedestal server from Target several years ago)

Wishing you all a week as beautiful as the one we're expecting here in New England!!!
Donna

You are so funny! This little pig has such a cute smile on his/her face. I love it. The little piggy does deserve to have the spot light on him as he is so cute.

Glad you had a wonderful Easter.

Hugs,
Joanne

Well isn't he a cutie! I love pigs :0)
Sounds like your Easter was a good one and that you enjoyed it.
Enjoy your week. We've got 40mile winds right now, there are palm frawns everywhere, ugh! and it's only 60 degrees! blah!
Tomorrow we'll start warming up and this weekend we'll be back in to the 80s. I can't wait.

I would epoxy that little piggy down on the cake plate and never move him. Looks fantastic this way. Maybe even put a single fairy light under the plate to highlight him.

He's great.

I love the idea of a pig under a glass dome! Perfect. By the way, I've watched Susan's performance on Britain's Got Talent many times - I cry every time. Beautiful and uplifting!

A pig under glass, sounds like an item on a menu. LOL

At least there's a smile on it's face.

Well, isn't he "enchanting" under the glass! I think he's adorable. And you've "reined" him in where he can't cause any trouble.
