I looked around my kitchen where most of my collectables are and spied my cute little farmer piggy bank in his red overalls.
I thought you might like to meet him - I don't really have a proper name for him ( just farmer piggy) which is unusual for me.
As you know by now, I name most of my vintage finds and then I make up a few stories about them....
Once upon a time there was a piggy who liked to save money for his future.
His dad thought he should spend it on schooling so that he could follow in his footsteps (his dad was a piggy banker).
But this little piggy has an independant spirit so he decided to follow his own dream, which was to be a farmer. He used his money and bought some land on the outskirts of town.
He then became known to everyone as farmer piggy.
Farmer piggy is very content and likes to work in his fields in the day and at night, he likes to read and sometimes play the fiddle.
Everyday when he is out in his turnips, he is on the lookout for Penelope piggy who just happens to walk by his farm daily as she goes to work downtown at the local 5 & Dime.
When she looks his way, his eyes get an endearing twinkle.
She has a certain shyness about her, but she secretly hopes that he will ask her to the hay ride and square dance in July.
