Ugly Pig

I'm sitting here staring at this thing wondering, "Why in the world did my MIL have to get this piece of hideousness for my daughter?" I had hoped it would be one of those things that I could tuck away and she'd forget about it, then I could donate it to charity or something. But, oh no, every time she finds a coin (or raids our pockets...), into the pig it goes. And, let me tell you, this gal has some lofty goals for this money: it's going to buy our new house one day!! So, I have to pretty this sow up with some paint or decoupage or something. I was thinking of a peachy pink, but I don't know... Any ideas??

I think your daughter should keep the pig on her closet shelf to "keep it safe." *wink * wink*

Stopping in from SITS to say hi! Maybe you could put a towel over it and say the piggie is cold....

Don't they always want to hang onto the ugly stuff? My DD got this hat thing, with two strips by the ears and stuffed mice hanging from them (yes, it's as pretty as it sounds LOL) and she LOVES it and wants to wear it everywhere. UGH it's so fugly!

Good luck getting your daughter to agree to a piggy makeover!
