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.

  3. Rhonda Topor says:

    Doesn’t everyone need a few more piggies at their table? I love them, too oinking cute!

  4. Venesa says:

    So happy to see you up and running again! We missed you and the laughter you bring to all of us. Hoping to win these little piggies for my husband who is a lover of pigs, loves pigs, is fond of pigs?…no matter how I say it, it somehow sounds very wrong.

  5. Carolyn says:

    I cannot help but notice that it looks like the coop also makes little piggies look right at home!

  6. Kim says:

    piggies please :)

    Man — give something away and the comments come out of the woodwork. Is this part of your FB scientific experiment?

  7. Sue Ann says:

    Wee, wee, wee…..please send them to my home!!

  8. Kat says:

    So cute.

  9. Leigh says:

    In my family we affectionately call each other Pig! We have somewhat of a collection of pigs in the kitchen and would love to add the salt and pepper shakers….pick me! Pick me! PLEASE!!!

  10. Kimberley says:

    How sweet! I’ll share on Facebook to spread the love. :)

  11. Kate from Detroit says:

    Yay for the perfect giveaway! I have no collection to reference. Just could really use S&P shakers, as I have none and classlessly have been leaving the giant salt container on the kitchen table. These are super cute and I’d love to brag that I got them from you. :)

  12. Bre Quantrill says:

    Oh awesomeness! I look forward to this blog every morning. Sometimes I even stay up late so get it fresh from the inbox just after midnight. And a lil’ piggy s&p shaker giveaway! Pepe went to market e Sale stayed home…

  13. Vanessa says:

    Here-e-e piggy, piggy, piggy!

  14. Sarah H says:

    Awwww…. these would go great with the little chicken set that I have. Thanks for such a great blog! I am glad you are back :)

  15. Karen S says:

    MY daughter taught English over seas and sent pigs home from every country she was in. They hail from Indonesia, France, Marco, Egypt, Ukraine, Taiwan , Japan, Turkey and (the dollar Store here in the US). It would be a joy to add a pair from your Country.

  16. Peggy says:

    Wow! That’s a lot of replies already! My first married name was going to be Peg Lett. So for a wedding present from my charming cousin I got a ceramic pig. Cute, Huh? I didn’t think so at the time, but have been collecting ever since!

  17. Shirley says:

    Two cute!!

  18. Jennifer says:

    One week from today both my children will be heading off to their first day of school…THAT, and winning a pair of piggy salt shakers might almost be too gloriousness to fathom!

  19. JBB says:

    I have plenty of trouble trying to keep the kids from playing with the regular, boring old salt and pepper shakers. I can’t imagine that fight with these on the table. Oy. Where’s the video camera?

  20. Katek says:

    I would switch out my very classy PEI lobster S & P shakers for these very cute pigs!

  21. brittany says:

    Very cute piggies, do you think they’d be offended sitting next to a plate of pork chops on my dinner table ;-) Fingers crossed that I win so I can find out!

  22. Myrna Blair says:

    My honey and I collect funny s&p shakers! These would be so much fun to add to our cows and geese and roosters!

  23. Gerri says:

    What a wonderful giveaway! I’m happy to add my name as a contender. Pigs make me happy.

  24. Maureen Locke says:

    My only collection is cute teddy bears but these little piggies are cute as a button. I’d be honoured to place these little darlin’s on my lazy susan next to the napkins and butter. :)

  25. Dianne says:

    Piggies…now you need a baby goat to complete the barn

  26. Barbara Resnick says:

    Such cute little piggies, I would love for them to grace my table!

  27. Dana says:

    How exciting, these piggies are (possibly) ready to go around the world, but know nothing of it… For a moment there it made me think of a great game we could all play together, but now I completely lost that thought! Oh well, cute pigs!

  28. Belinda Philp says:

    look at all the comments! And here’s mine :)

  29. Angela says:

    I think those little piggies would be just the perfect bit of random/don’t match anything but they’re cute for my kitchen!!

  30. Jane says:

    I’ve never won anything but it’s fun to play! I love your site! Keep up the good work. You make so many of us happy and you are loved! Thank you!

  31. Laurie says:

    Cute shakers!!

  32. Jacqui says:

    They want to visit South Africa!

  33. Terri says:

    I have a collection of nothing. This would be a great start to a collection of something. Weeeeeee…..!

  34. Angela Recker says:

    These are TOO cute! I’ve never seen these. All I ever find are the cartoonish type – pigs wearing aprons or chef’s hats! I have a barnyard theme in my kitchen – cows (mostly cows!), pigs & hens! These would be an awesome addition!

  35. Vicki says:

    I’m not sure I’d want to put anything in them… they’re so cute I’d just use them for decoration!

  36. Vanessa says:

    Oh we will give them a good home down under!

  37. Barbara says:

    Still reading your blog, even though I am vacationing in Germany and Italy…still, I love to win those little pigs for my arrival home to Canada on September 2! Thanks for a fun blog today!

  38. Shelly gahagan says:

    Who doesn’t love little pigs. They are adorable. Love the shakers. Hope I win!!!

  39. Elysia says:

    Such cute little piggies!

  40. CarlyMae says:

    I mean, I wouldn’t want salt coming out of MY wiener (if I had one), but some weenie dog shakers might not be so bad…though only if I don’t win the cute piggies!

  41. Cathy says:

    Roll the dice, Mamma needs a new set of piggies!
    The perfect addition to my S/P collection…..

  42. Patricia says:

    Yes, count me in!

  43. SK Farm Girl says:

    I think these piggies would round my little collection of animal s/p shakers! So far the kissing chipmunks are my fav’rit, but the adorable piggies would become my fav once they find their home in my little pasture! Just sayin . . .

  44. Mondo says:

    not so keen on piggy salt and pepper shakers…I just like to win stuff.

  45. Briony says:

    Aaah! They’re adorable! And they would look even cuter in my b&w kitchen…

  46. Beth Mcadams says:

    Would love to see them in my 177 year old farmhouse kitchen!

  47. Toronto Boy says:

    The detail on the pig shakers are really nice! I like ’em! The fact that one is black and the other is white makes it so easy not to mix them up!

  48. LeeAnn says:

    They are way too cute! What a nice giveaway, I’d love to add my name.

  49. Kristen says:

    Adorable little piggies. Love seeing them lined up on the board waiting to be called into service.
