When PIGS Fly!

For those of you that stop by my blog frequently, this is what I was working on and this is Penny! Lil Penny Piggy...She is just the sweetest and I never really liked pigs, well not adore anyways...but this one, I adore *smirk* Hubby helped me with the base...so nice of him!

A little bit farther away. I made the hanging tag on it from grungeboard, love that stuff. I also crackled it...it looks so aged. You can't really see it, but it says "When PIGS Fly". We have all said it and well, why can't pigs fly. You just have to use a little bit of IMAGINATION and ANYTHING is POSSIBLE! I will be listing Penny Piggy in Ebay tomorrow evening. I didn't get the best pictures and they will have to wait until tomorrow.

I have already started on another new handmade...boy, I must be on a roll. Mark it down!! Did some yard work yesterday and today we all stopped by Dairy Queen, YUM! Stopped in for a BLIZZARD. They are on SALE thru the 25th. They are Celebrating 25 flavors - 25 years...if you purchase one, you get the second one for 25 cents. You simply can not beat that! Today was a perfect day for it too. The weather here in Mn, has been ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have had the perfect day. Blessings, ~Tonya

That pig is so cute.
Blizzards yum, I love the Banana Cream Pie one.
We were there earlier this week and I ordered the banana split one by accident, I was so mad at myself. The girl heard that and made me the one I wanted how sweet.
Unforunately we don't have that special here.
