Hey Someone Call Etsy.. They have some Pigs there I Want!

I collect pigs.  It started back when I was a junior in high school. The whole reason I collect pigs is because of an old boyfriend, a hunting incident, getting lost in the country, a farmer, my allowance and the runt in a litter.  One day I’ll tell you the story.. but for now just believe me when I say.. I collect pigs. 🙂  Here are 5 of my favorite from Etsy!

This listing is for Here Piggy Pig only. Other pictures are examples of other pieces and colors available. 🙂

Each piece is handmade. Your piece may differ slightly from picture shown. Please let us know if you would like your pig or background to be a different color. Otherwise it will be our favorite color combo…a funky black and white pig on a bright white background.  We can add words made out of license plate letters to this piece (see other listings for examples). In the past customers have added names, the words BBQ, let’s eat, etc… If you can dream it, we can make it. We have been working with salvaged materials for over 10 years. We have always been tree huggers, but working with salvaged materials initially came out of necessity. We married young and worked our way through undergrad school (having two babies along the way). We are now celebrating 12 years of marriage and are working our way through grad school (with one grade schooler and one middle schooler). Life goes on and on…we are just along for the ride. In 2008, we made and sold our first piece of “artwork”. Our house has always been filled with our creations, but after much prayer and decision making we decided to go out on a limb and try to market our fabulous creations to the world. Here we are today sharing them with you. Enjoy 🙂 We love to do custom pieces. If you do not see exactly what you are looking for, just send us a convo and we can make your vision a reality.
