Cute Pink Cloissone Pig!




Isn't he just the cutest. thing. ever?!?








OMG - just look at his sweet face!

Everytime I look at it I smile.




I've had him a long long time.


I got lucky when I found him at an antiques auction.









I think his best part is his curlieque tail!







The Irish Pig Jig

by Marion Sharville 


One Irish spring morn,
a wee leprechaun
saw a little pink pig
a-dancing a jig.


Its trotters were
flying all over the place.
Leprechaun cried
“Pig, you are a disgrace.”


“I’m full of the whisky,
that’s why I’m so frisky,”
cried Pig, with a shout
as it fell on its snout.


The folks came a-trotting
to see what was what-ing,
to gaze on the sight
of the pig who was tight.


They proceeded to pick up
that pig with the hiccup.
They took it away
and late that same day,


they dined on some Spam
and lots of boiled ham
then washed it all down
with a drop of the ‘brown’.

The leprechaun
went back home to his dell
and took with him
lots of boiled bacon, as well.


So, pink pigs take warning,
who drink in the morning,
if you want to get tight,
drink your whisky…...at night!







HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!

(I'm a wee early - because it's St. Pat's weekend & we have fun plans.)


As always, thanks for your visit!

Have a safe and happy weekend!



Hugs, 

Michele
