Name that pig!


I have an order for a couple of personalized piggy banks. It was a nice reprieve after making 30 pigs, all glazed in green and white. The most fun thing with the personalized pigs are the names that I stamp on them. You may remember the "Murray" pig from last fall, that was a fun one. This first order of the year are "Ruby" and "Talulah". Aren't those just great names?

Of course the big talk of the day has been the giant blizzard that is about to fall upon the northeast. I don't even live there anymore and I am excited about it! I had a sudden need to dash off to the grocery store for bread and milk.... except I came home with bananas, a pork roast, and wine... as well as a nice IPA for Jeff. I hope that everyone in the great north weathers the storm, warm, comfy, and safe. Jeff and I will be living vicariously through your facebook posts, enjoying our libations, and not having to get out and shovel.
Cheers!

  1. "Talulah" is a great name for a pig (apologies to Talulahs who might be reading this!). Our neighbour had a rooster that he called "Nigel"... which made me smile as I have never thought of Nigel being a rooster type of name!

    Snow! All warm and dry in our part of the world....!

  2. Those are great names and great piggies. Are you letting the buyer’s pick the name of their pig or are you making them up?

    1. Most of the personalized piggy banks have the names of the children that are receiving them. I am not sure, but "Murray" may have been for an adult.

  3. Love that you name your pigs. It's an added bit of charm that individualizes each piggy pal!
    You and Jeff have found the best way to weather a blizzard. Move to warmer climes and enjoy from afar!

    1. As you can read in my reply to Lori, the buyers are requesting the names. I haven't been that original, lol. I hope that you weather the storm safely and that the power stays on!
