A lot of pigs in a Basket


more from the Grab Bag 

Inside the basket lid a sticker originally marked $1.00, reduced to 50 cents.

but it was part of the whole grab bag I bought for $1

You toss the pigs and get points based on how they land.


This is a good time to remind you there is a Barnyard Bash happening this Friday.  We’d love to have you join us.

And now…onto the reason I chose this particular Grab Bag 

A cute ceramic puppy

  2. Okay, so like any decent cat would never admit they have owned the pig game. So I won’t….but “she” did 😉 “She” seemed to actually enjoy it!! Said it was just too cute and funny.

    And the ceramic pup — well he’s simply wonderful, cute face! I can see why you wanted this grab bag!

    Thanks for stopping by – we really enjoyed your visit, and we enjoyed ours here with you!
