I recall my Aunt Diane being smitten with pigs as decor. And while I have nothing against pigs, (in fact I used to own two pot bellied pigs – Hamlet and Virginia Ham – yup true story), I never really gravitated towards pigs in my own decor. My dear friend Bill has a plethora of pigs around his home … so many, in fact, that his wife, Alicia, has put the kibosh on him getting any more.
As evidenced HERE and HERE, I already have a couple of pigs in my home. This little piggy, however, I fashioned up myself. I had seen in various places a Golden Winged Piggy Bank pop up in design. And let me tell you at $175, I refuse to fork over pennies in my piggy bank for such a purchase.
And then this happened…I stumbled across a white ceramic winged piggy at “Michaels” craft store. It wasn’t a bank, but it generally looked very similar. It was also on the clearance rack for $4.00. I promptly brought it home and spray painted it with metallic gold spray paint I had on hand, leaving me with $171 and my owned golden winged piggy.
