the perfect pig ( wink wink)

I've been scouring etsy for the perfect vintage piggy bank for Graeme.
( on a side note, I've also been scouring my bath tub since today marked, no pun intended, the second time Graeme pooped in the tub this week. I texted Steve to tell him the joyous news and he replied with, "rub a dub dub, two poops in the tub!" It made me laugh;-)

Anywho, back to the subject.....
I want to buy Graeme a piggy bank for Christmas. When my parents visited recently, Pop Pop left Graeme a very large bag of change, but sadly we had no piggy bank to hold it.

Interestingly enough, none of these are pigs;-) And can you believe that the elephants are selling at $249. They were "designed by Luigi Colani in the 60s for the German Dresdner Bank. Indeed, young customers received these moneyboxes as a gift according to size of their savings." I'm sure the children that held on to these miniature banks are quite happy now;-)

hmmmmm, which one will it be? Obviously not the elephants, but they would be my first choice were it not for the price and also for the fact that they would hold all of two and a half quarters!

oh, and today, in all seriousness, I am thankful for cleaning products!


  1. ok, crazy ridiculous price! cuz I love the ekephants too. but I must say, the owl ranks up near the top too - too cute!

  2. Your blog is so cute! I love all of these vintage finds :)

  3. kelly,
    I know. I couldn't believe it. Yes, I think the owl is going to get a little more consideration from me;-)
