Show and Tell Friday

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday hosted by Kelli. Today I am sharing two of my little pigs...

I love to repurpose old things. These two sweet little pigs have been repurposed. The one with the wooden spoons is actually a pitcher. The cutie is a cookie jar. Today she just keeps her friend company on my little repurpsed table that is now and island in the kitchen. When my daughter was growing up we used it to put dried rose petals from flowers that her daddy gave us and her 'beau's' those petals have since been discarded and so little piggie waits for a new job.
My grandbaby will be big enough for cookies soon so she will be going to work.

These two little piggies came from my mothers kitchen. I remember seeing them sitting on the shelf with a few other similar pieces. My mother never used them. She was more in just having things hanging around collecting dust. And yes there was dust well no actually there wasn't because I had to dust them every Saturday. You would think I would hate the little guys. But I don't and I am happy and proud to have them and to be using them!

Thanks for coming and visiting and btw before you go too far check out my other blog. I am having a giveway and the last day is Sunday. So go over here and leave a comment and I'll enter you.

Have a wonderful Friday enjoy the Show and Tell.
