Three Little Pigs.
A salt & pepper giveaway.

Title 2


A few months ago I did a post and one of the pictures included a shot of my pig salt and pepper shakers.  I can’t even remember what the post was about but I *do* remember that people went more nuts over the salt and pepper shakers than the actual content of the post.

Because everyone seemed to be so enamoured with those little pigs I figured I’d run to the store where I got them, buy a few sets and give them away.  So I did exactly that.  And I did it 14 times until the store had them in stock again.

The shakers come from a local grocery store and they were out of them for the longest time. All they had were wiener dog salt and peppers. And I don’t know about you but I don’t want salt coming out of my wiener.  A wiener.  Any wiener.

So 14 times this little piggy went to market.  Then this little piggy came home.  Empty handed.

The store finally got them in stock so as a thank you for reading my website I’m giving away three sets right this very moment.    Very soon, three of these salt and pepper sets will be going weee, weeee, weeee all the way to your home.

  42. Sam says:

    me me me. I ‘collect’ pigs of all shapes and sizes – excepting live ones, which I used to collect when I lived on a farm, but can’t now I live in the suburbs because they would boss the dogs around too much and ruin my garden. So I passed on the bug to my Mum and Dad. Buuut I am not ‘allowed’ to collect anymore without disposing of one pig related item first.
    However, if two little pigs were sent to me in Australia, from far away Canada, I am sure a deal could be struck….
    Sorry to sound like the crazy pig lady.

  43. Muff Hackett says:

    Those little piggies are very cute (and would be a wonderful gift for my beloved niece who is a piggie fanatic!).

    Thanks for letting us in to your world Karen, it is always and interesting visit and often very amusing while informative. For instance, who knew that there were wiener dog salt and pepper shakers? I share your revulsion!

  44. Becky says:

  48. Ella says:

    “So 14 times this little piggy went to market. Then this little piggy came home.” So cute!

  49. Nancy Willaford says:
