New Doll, Dirty Piggys

Before I share the new doll and dirty pigs, how about making a shrine/art piece for the charity online auction Rebecca is holding? Rebecca has updated the list of contributors so far... and the more the merrier?  The money raised will be going to the Oaxacon Streetchildren Grassroots.  Please send Rebecca an email for more information - she would love to hear from you ~ HERE ~
Here is a photo of some of the beauties that will be accompanying my art doll for the auction.  I'm going to have trouble parting with them.  Andrea of Sheep Creek Needlecraft is their creator.

A commissioned fairy art doll by the lovely Pam.  She is painted in a beautiful Burnt Sienna. 
Thank you Pam.  I thouroughly enjoyed the challange.  Pam has named her Hotaru.

Our piggys have continued to settle in well.  They are on a diet, because I was over feeding them.  They don't seem to notice the reduction luckily.  They were beautifully black & white when they first arrived.  I'm almost certain they must have lived in a barn only,  because they have been covered in mud since day two of living with us.  We are about to put up some more fencing to extend their paddock, and they'll get some fresh grass to turn over.
I love this shot of their big bottoms! LOL
If they are not sleeping, or rolling in their mud bath, they are doing the above... heads down, wagging tails & turning grass to mud!

  2. The deer are beautiful. I wouldn't want to let them go either. Hotaru is also beautiful. She looks so exotic. And finally your piggies look so HAPPY! What sweet little fat things they must be.
