This little piggy

I found the most adorable pig at Home Goods the other day.  I was really looking for one with wings but this little one caught my eye.  Actually it isn't all that little.  It is about 14 1/2 inches long and 8 1/2 inches high. This little piggy will be going in my kitchen. 

I just love this face.  I made a bow to put around it's neck.  It just looked so bare.  Here she is all dressed up.  Yes it is a she now that I added the fancy bow.

I put her on top of the cabinets since I didn't have any room down below.

I also got the birdbath flowers planted out front.  That was the last of the annual flowers for the front yard.  Now I can concentrate on the back yard. I needed something that would not grow too high so I choose petunias.  I only wish they came in yellow and orange. 
 Here is how the front yard looks right now.  Some of the flowers are blooming while others are still growing.  I would still like to plant a few more flowers along the border to fill in.  I am one of those that love an instant garden.  I always like to plants things close together because I think that it looks better when they grow into each other.  I don't like gaps.
I wasn't liking the color of our house this winter but now that everything is blooming I think it looks much better.  I will do another post this summer once everything is in full bloom and I have added the rest of the flowers.

I had many plans for this weekend to get things done outside but we are suppose to have thunderstorms today and Sunday so I guess I will be organizing the garage, cleaning the house and hopefully getting all the little projects done inside that I have been putting off.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy weekend.
