I had occasion to visit my Public TV Access Group’s bookkeeper and she is a collector of pigs. I’m not sure what the fascination for pigs is, but, here they are:
Maybe it’s a reminder of the political pigs feeding at the public trough. Oh, that was ugly. It’s just a pig teapot.
Eileen’s pigs are mostly decorative knickknacks. Just cute little critters.
The site is having a problem and providing me with this miniscule font. So, pictures seem better than words. Besides, I was awfully wordy yesterday about the contention, I mean the convention.
This pig is straight forward and sweet. When we arrange our collections, do we make sure they are all turned the same way? Facing right? Or left? Hmm!
Most of Eileen’s pigs were facing right.
When placed against on a table with other things, left facing was necessary to see the character.
The room, table and walls configured for the one above to be arranged facing left.
And this bold Harley Rider is multi-dimensional and faces forward. Not that any of this matters, but if you decorate your office with your collection, they have to look appealing.
They are cute and most knickknack collections have cute appeal. And, I always appreciate other people’s collections being a collectiholic myself.
My daughter-in-law collects non-political elephants and the form and function elephants can take goes way beyond knickknacks and is fascinating. Always the object turned art.
But, this one was my favorite. It has a message with just the right touch of truth and humor. Oh, boy!
