Vintage Style Milagros

I found these Vintage Style Milagros and fell in love. The word "Milagro" means "miracle. Small religious metal charms often found in areas of Latin America and also used in Europe where they were often referred to as Exvotos (Offerings).

In Mexico the Milagros are connected with an institution known as the "manda". This is where a person will ask a favor of a saint, and then, in order to repay the saint after the favor has been granted, one must make a pilgrimage to the shrine of that saint, and take a Milagros and leave it there. Milagros are typically pinned to some object of devotion in the shrine and often a small prayer of thanks is added.

See more of these gorgeous pieces at the Pink Pig.

Pink Hand-Carved Santas

Each year I have the opportunity to showcase these Hand-Carved Santas by Ben Raino.

I met Ben at a local Craft Fair here in the North Country 3 years ago. He is a retired gentleman who finds much joy creating these hand-carved Santas. My initial response when I found these charming Santas was....Oh my can you make them in PINK....and so our relationship began.

Each year I visit the local craft fair only to find Ben Raino with a sack full of Santas just for the Pink Pig. I hope you enjoy these as much as I and appreciate the craftsmanship of these Hand-Carved Santas made here in the Adirondack's. You can find them at the Pink Pig.

Butterfly Award

Thank you so much to all about TopCat Creations for giving me this Butterfly Award.

Positive Tees Support Important Causes

Chimpanzee TShirt by Positive Tee

Chimpanzees manage to blur the line between the human and animal world. Chimpanzees have distinct personalities, rational and problem solving abilities, show altruism and even the ability to think abstractly.

Sadly, only about 150,000 chimpanzees remain in the wild, where 2 million lived in 1900. The threats to chimpanzees are numerous, and the need to save them urgent. They offer man a critical link to the past and are far too important not to be included in the future.

Elephant Wisdom TShirt by Positive Tee

African & Asia are home to about 485,000 wild elephants. Families of elephants roam for miles each day searching for food & water. Their complex social units last a lifetime. Elephants are intelligent & compassionate. They care for their sick & they mourn their dead.

Be contrast, hundreds of individual elephants endure the alien, unnatural conditions of American zoos & circuses. Confined in tiny, solitary enclosures—it’s hard to imagine what life for a captive elephant is like. Born Free USA works tirelessly to conserve wild elephants & end elephant captivity.

Defending Our Oceans TShirt by Positive Tee

The oceans are in crisis. Global warming is killing coral reefs. Industrial fishing is depleting entire species. Chemicals & pollutants can be found in the most remote seas.

Greenpeace is committed to defending the health of the world’s oceans and the plants, animals and people that depend upon them. It holds governments & corporations responsible for criminal degradation. It works to find solutions to global environmental issues. Greenpeace campaigns for a green and peaceful future, and to preserve the cradle of all life on earth.
