A long time ago, I used to collect pigs. I had a HOUSE FULL of them. When we moved from Florida, I got rid of many if not most of the pigs. I did keep some that were special to me. My mother gave me this pig planter.
It is hollow inside to put a plant in. It hangs in my kitchen and I have never put a plant in it before. I would love to make it into a string holder like this one.
They would hang on the wall and you would put a ball of string in them and stick the end out of their mouth. When you needed string you just pulled on the string until it was as long as you needed and cut it off.
Most of the vintage string holders were made of chalkware. This pig of mine is ceramic. What would I use to drill a hole in its mouth and not cause it to break?
