This Little Piggy

My kids have the cutest little Piggy Banks we bought a few years ago while visiting Lancaster, PA. They have held up so well despite being lugged all over the house and not spending their lives poised nicely on top of a dresser. My kids NEVER let anything just sit nicely on their dresser.

So, a few weeks ago, we had a fatality. The little piggy fell on the kitchen floor and shattered. It was terrible! We already had a camping trip planned to Lancaster, so I figured I'd find a replacement while we were there. No luck!

While in target one day, I spotted this little piggy in the dollar spot.

"This little piggy went to the market......."

"And this little Piggy stayed home and got a make-over!"

He was so plain, so life-less. I asked my little one if we could jazz it up a bit. She said, "Sure, I'd like hearts and swirls"!

I broke in to my scrapbooking paper and Sizzletts and here we have it....hearts and swirls! A little Modge Podge and we're set!

"And this little piggy cried, weeeee weeeee weeeee all the way home."
