Happy (Flying) Pig Day

Believe in the impossible.  

That is the message of today.  

This flying pig watering can came all the way from New Zealand from Sunshine.  She also made the cute flying pig ornament below.  Thank you Sunshine.  I love the watering can and your ornament is beautiful with all that sparkle and those hearts encircling her and will hang alongside my other paper pig ornaments at school.  (I've already gotten several compliments!)

This beautiful card came flying across the Atlantic from Ireland and my blogging buddy Sabrina.  I wish you could see this in person because the picture doesn't do it justice.  It's wonderfully colored and the silver lining on the clouds, along with the beautiful sentiment just take my breath away.  

I found some of these tin mailboxes in a closet and came across these solar powered flying pigs just after Christmas.  I wish I had bought all of them to share with all my "pig ladies".  Those that I did have I posted off to my "Pigs on Parade" participants.  Hopefully they found their way to them by today, but if not, the message of the flying pig will carry on.

And to my "Pig Ladies" I was able to send these little 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 notes.  The pigs look like they're metal but they're really two separate elements - Dresdens that I found in a new art shop down the shore.  I wish I had bought more because my list of "Pig Ladies" grows with each year.

  1. Sigh.... I am so blessed to have you as a friend. Mine arrived last night and I was tickled pink. I LOVE the way you always have such great ways to mail the piggies. I have kept all of mine and have them displayed in my craft room. I squealed when I opened my mailbox.
    I have something for you but have to finish the card. LOL. I will get it postal by Monday. Sorry it is late. I had great intentions. You made my year. Hugs and much love.

  2. Your wonderful solar-powered pig flew in bang on time, Lorraine - although I was so busy I did have to send DH to the post office to pick up the package. I had a sneaky feeling it might be from you - and as soon as I saw that amazing packing tape I knew I was right. Love the little mail-box, as kids we used to be so intrigued by them in the Peanuts cartoons.
    I'm glad my pig arrived on time too - and as for photography, I think you did a better job than I did!! You captured the iridescent wings, which I failed miserably to do.

  3. PLEASE put me out of my misery Lorraine- which company makes that cute flying pigs stamp on my card you sent??! Does it have a number on it? I'd love to get one!
    Once again, thank you so much for the parcel that 'flew' in to my mail box yesterday! Love it!
    Sunshine, New Zealand

  4. Lorraine - I received my Pig Day surprise in the mail today. What a wonderful surprise. I haven't been blogging as regularly as I should the last couple of weeks - so hadn't read your Flying Pig day post. Thank you again - you made my day. I will keep my little flying day on my desk at work - and when I am having one of those crazy school office type days - it will remind me to that the world is full of wonderful people and I just need to remember to laugh. Thank you again!

  5. Aww...

    Lorraine! What a wonderful, amazing surprise I had in the mail from you last week! You are so amazing! What fun.....I agree with Dawn, I am so blessed to be your friend! And I am right there with her...have something for you as well......

    Hugs girlfriend, thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness, kindness and friendship. I hope to have more time to have *fun* with you now that I am not so involved with TT.

    Hugs.....Love ya girl!

    Can't believe how long that little piggy flies! He has lots of energy.....and I loved all of the DOTS! Snort!

    Thank YOU!
