"WHEN PIGS FLY" FOR BLUE MONDAY



http://smilingsally.blogspot.com







I've always loved the expression "when pigs fly...". So, when I saw this cute little guy at an arts and crafts show, I knew he had to come home with me. He's spent time at the beach house and the city house, since his color works so well at both places. As you can see, he's made out of sheet metal and other "found" pieces of junk.


I love his curly little pig tail made out of nuts and bolts.




 Each year, in March, Fairhope, Alabama is host to one of the largest arts and crafts shows in the country. Downtown streets are closed off and filled with several hundred vendors. The offerings range from ticky-tacky to beautiful fine arts. If you can't find something to buy here, you just aren't an arts and crafts person!
