Pig Alert!

Hi everyone-Happy Pink Saturday and Seasonal Sunday! I received an e-mail a week or so ago... We all know that Candy at The Little Round Table loves vintage linens. Well, she found a table runner from Sweden that featured a Christmas scene with elves and pigs! If you're not familiar with TLRT please stop by, in addition to linens Candy has the most amazing collection of Fiesta and Homer Laughlin pieces!
Cute, Cute, Cute! 

Possible Post Titles:
"Melvin's been hitting the egg nog again!"
"Elves just wanna have fun"
"How to know when the office party gets out of hand"
"Squealing thru the snow"
"Pigs, pigs everywhere and not a bite to eat"
"Hey! Who greased the pig???"
"Hang on Vern, it's only an 8 second ride!"
"Porky pudding to all, and to all a good night"
Any more???

This will be one of my Favorite Things, if Santa brings this fun runner:@)

PS-I looked up Swedish customs hoping to find something about the elf riding the pig... 
Umm, let's just say folks all over the world seem to enjoy ham for Christmas dinner!

Beverly asked us to share a Christmas recipe, so I'm linking Chocolate Pizzelles-enjoy!

Have a happy day!

  2. How cute is that. I love the little guy. Did you know that my Aunt and Uncle in Wisconsin used to be pig farmers along with being dairy farmers. I don't tell that to just anyone! We grew up going to visit the baby pigs.

  3. Cute post!!

    I just read Jacqueline's comment.

    My oldest daughter was one of the first girls in FFA, way back in the early 80's. She raised pigs two years. We had cows, but that was the only time we had pigs out at the farm. This was when I was still married to the girls' dad...many a long year ago. The Hamps were notorious escape artists.

  4. Well, I thought that, in my looong lifetime, I had just about seen it all but Santa riding a PIG?? You NEED that runner, girl...:)

    I live in a '50s house, too..no metal cabinets, tho...our house was built in 1957 so maybe they had quit making the metals by then.

  8. Oh how cute that is! I love it! Since I am an Ark. Razorback fan, I'd be saying OOOOOO Pig Soooooie, cause that's what we Arkansans say when we see our big Razorback mascot. I know a lot of Razorback fans who'd fight you for that cute runner. I love all of the captions you posted too-you are so clever. Hope Santa brings it to you. Thank you for linking this to Favorite Things. laurie

  9. Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
    Oh how adorable is this table runner. The elf is running away with his pig friend so that he doesn't get caught for the Christmas dinner. He loves riding him so. How delightful and fun this would be on a Christmas table. Definitely a conversation piece. I hope Santa has seen your list in time for the holidays.

    Thanks for the recipe share. Wonderful share sweetie. Just wonderful. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

  10. Sending a holiday 'oink' to you from Frog Hollow Farm! Holiday decorations from other countries are so very interesting - they really give the holiday another level of understanding. I don't know if I ever told you that my son loved his Mrs. Piggy and Mr. Piggy while he was growing up. They were little furry squeak toys that we made sleeping bags for and mended with rick-rack and grosgrain ribbon! He even painted Mrs. Piggy with all of her mending while in Florence Italy and sold it to a collector! Hope all is well! Ciao, bella!

  14. I live on an old pig farm in Wisconsin.
    My new ornaments for my porch are flying pigs. Should I hang them for Chrsitmas?

  25. This post is a hoot. I have never seen Santa ride a pig before, but I bet he is doing that just for you!!! Thank you Lynn for the sweet comments on my blog. I haven't been in Pink Saturday for two weeks now because of lack of time. I have missed everyone and hope to be back next week. Happy Pink Saturday girlfriend, Char

  27. I woke my husband up this morning chuckling at your post titles... I think my favorite is "Porky pudding to all, and to all a good night"! although "8 second ride" is a close second! Thanks for the smiles :-)

  28. Oh, this tickled my funny bone! I love your possible post titles! What a fun way to start my day!

  29. Oh how I love your blog!!! This one made me laugh. In much of Europe, a pig is good luck. In German the saying is "Hab' Schwein gehabt".. which means I had good luck. That is going to be one delightful tablecloth! I can't wait to see what you do with it, I'm sure it will be your spectacular self. Merry Christmas and yes the treasured ornaments are staying put. Although the ornaments in bowls and such remain untouched. But that can change any minute! Thanks for dropping in.
