My piggy collection

I can't remember the first time I realised I absolutely loved pigs. My first specific memory is from when I was 7 years old and I already loved them then. 

I have so many pigs dotted around the home, it's unreal. I just can't resist a little besnouted piggy! 

This is the pig glove puppet I picked up at Winchester Christmas Market and Mega Pig

I love my Laura Ashley doorstoppers. I had to go to about a billion different branches before I finally found some! 

This is where the majority of my pigs live. The little tiny ones in the bottom right corner are magnets that I also got from Winchester Christmas Market, but a few years ago. The rhinestoned Christmas decoration was a present from Rich, and the three triplets in the back are from Tiger. I couldn't decide which colour to get so I got all three! Right at the back is another glove puppet and a musical, jiggling Christmas pig that grunts Jingle Bells. 

The egg timer was a Christmas present (yep, Christmas again!) from my grandparents. The vintage money box at the front is from I Heart Vintage

The smiling little fella at the top here is Happy Pig. I don't even remember where I got him from. At Reading Festival 2010, I spotted this adorable pig hat. I didn't buy it and regretted it until Download Festival 2011, when I finally found one and snapped it up sharpish. He is being worn by one of the green pigs from Angry Birds. When he's squeezed, he grunts. The postman would have got quite the shock when he squeezed the parcel through the letterbox! 

Finally, I have to end with my Fluffy. I got him when I was 8 years old (Yep, for Christmas!) and he is such an important figure in my life. I know it's a little sad but I really do love this ball of fluff!

  4. Hello! I absolutely love your blog and I've never actually commented but I had to on this post. Your piggies remind me of my childhood trips to my great aunt's. She's a pig lover too and had these wonderful little ornaments from a collection called Piggin'. Your post triggered this memory and a quick eBay search shows that they're still around! Check out http://shop.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/searchresults;PdsSession=fece438013c0a5aa4675cf55fffb6ba4?kw=piggin+ornaments&cmd=SREF&fads=All&call=All&sort=BestMatch&mfs=GOCLK&acimp=0&isNewKw=true Hope the link works - they're piggin' great! Thanks for the memory :-)

    1. I want a pet one too! But I'd be so upset when it dies. I'm not sure if it's worth the pain at the end.

      Definitely try and get the giraffe hat! Download is great for animal hats!
