I was indulging in a little retail therapy the other day and came upon a sweet (but plain) papier mache pig. I immediately thought of my friends Alex and Danielle, and I knew right then that it would make a perfect little gift for their restaurant’s fifth birthday.
Once inspiration struck (in the form of a vintage French dictionary and a jar of Mod podge), the transformation was easy. It took just a couple hours of cutting, gluing, painting and glazing to turn the humble little pig into “le petit cochon”. I am so happy with how it turned out...and even happier that it has a lovely new home with my dear friends.
What is French for “oink”?
Note: once again, please excuse the janky Blackberry photo.
