A New Pig Cutting Board


Growing up, my mom always had a pig cutting board in her Early American style kitchen. There is something charmingly innocent and idyllic to me about a rustic wood pig shaped board. For me, it is an icon of the country kitchen.

This is the newest addition to what is quietly becoming my newest collection. He's so sweet and chubby, just like a good pig should be. 

The dark gray-brown wood tones perfectly matched the antique drop leaf table and french wicker basket that hides my trash can.


There's another pig, hanging at the other end of my little galley kitchen along with my newly completed "Meat Market" sign.


I originally intended to make this sign to hang in my diningroom, but I ended up liking it above the doorway in my kitchen instead.


And last but not least, there is this little piggy propped up behind some yellowware bowls beside my sink. I've heard that 3 or more of something qualifies as a "collection", so I guess it's official!

  1. I myself had a pig cutting board in my old country kitchen, it had a crackle finish due to my craftiness at the time. They are very charming indeed, and yours is divine!
