My Pig Collection Continues!
Pig Collection translated into German means Schweine Sammlung!
The next few pages are dedicated to my German Friends with partial german links :@)
I am sure you wonder where I keep all my pigs. But currently they are stored in 2 countries; Germany & Ireland!
On our next visit to Germany we will open some boxes again & take some more pictures of previously unpublished piggies to add them to our website, so you can admire more of our online collection/ museum :@)
Sometimes even I am surprised what kind of pig items are out there! Just amazing! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do :@)

I am a big fan of the artist; he always has funny word games involved; The fortuneteller foresees a "Pig-Full-Year". In this case the pig thinks its a great thing (a year with lots of pigs)... but what it really means is a lousy year...
Pig Black Board
When our godchildren came for a visit to Ireland in 2008, I went to search for a toilet seat & stool... never thought I would find some items for my collection in this connection! :o) amazing, huh?
Since I didn't plan to go on a shopping spree, I didn't bring my backpack with me & the plastic bag i got from the shop broke after not even 2 min carrying it... so I had to walk through the city of Dublin carrying this Pig with its Toilet Brush in its behind in my bare hands... you can imagine the looks I got! :o)
