this little piggie

i wanted to share with you another favorite thing of mine, my salt pig. a salt pig is simply a variation of a salt cellar, a container to store salt. why call it a pig? usually, it has a large wide opening that looks like the snout of a pig. my salt pig, a gift, has a large oval shaped opening resembling a big ole mouth. i have often wondered if there was a underlying message there.

if you are a food network fan, you often see alton brown reaching for this salt server , but I think this one is way cuter. soooo-iee!

alton's is too fussy and would get messy fast with that polished silver and glass, and the pink pig is too comic book-ish.

yours is just right
