Welcome to the Pig Pen!

A few weeks ago, my friend, Kim at Exquisitely Unremarkable  had  this adorable pig pot hanger as a giveaway.  Since I have been collecting pigs for more than thirty years, I entered ..........and won! Thanks, Kim! Isn't he adorable?   I took this as a sign that it's time to share my pig collection.  Are you ready? It all started with this guy: My husband had this bacon press when I met him and I fell in love with it (along with my future husband, of course!)  I started collecting and the larger ones all landed on top of my kitchen cabinets. Welcome to the Pig Pen!  That's the name this area has been affectionately given.  Let's meet the occupants....... Starting on the left is 'Watering Can Pig'.  He was a gift from my kids when they were little and really is a watering can, not that I've ever used him.  I love the hammered metal.
