This Little Piggy Went To Market...

Here is another antique sign that I am thinking of reproducing for my house.

I spotted it in a Country Living magazine, in the kitchen of Dan Thibeault. LOVE the style of his home.

I like his decorating philosophy, too - mixing a few splurges in with the bargains in a way that makes everything look rich. I am a bargain-hunter by nature (also known as cheap) and the thrill of a good deal gets me every time. But I also have a feeling that I'd be hard pressed to find a fabulous french chandelier like THAT at a garage sale, and somewhere down the road a splurge like that will be well worth it!

But back to the "Meat Market"... Remember the little black and white wooden pig that's hanging all alone on my dining room wall right now?

How cute would that be?! I needed something else to go on that wall, and a sign like this would be perfect.

My apologies to the pig, of course... His role in my dining room is about to take a tragic turn.


  1. Your pig is adorable and the sign would be the perfect compliment to him. Love the pics and such fabulous decor. Hugs, Marty

  2. Hilarious, Ellie!
