Comments about Product: My husband likes pigs and especially liked this one when he saw it in the catalog. I ordered it for Father's Day but evidently not fast enough as we had quite a delay in getting it but it was worth it. My husband doesn't want it to get damaged so after one day outside "Arnold Ziffel" moved in by the fireplace!
Comments about Product: This cute little pig is not quite what you think it is going to be for the price. In the picture it looks more black, as stated in the description, it does have copperish hues throughout. It is rather lightweight, I would be very hesitant to use it for a sitting bench. It does make a cute little table or plantstand. I do think it was a little expensive for the the product received, I like it, but if I had seen it in a store for the same price, I would have waited till it went on clearance.
Comments about Product: I love this bench! It is a very different design and brings lots of comments. I use it as a table between two deck chairs. It is lightweight, so it needs to be put where the wind won't blow it over. I like it so much, I may buy one of the other animals as well.
Comments about Product: I collect pig items and this is a unique one! It is as advertised and well constructed. One note: the ears come to a point and are VERY SHARP. I had to put something over the tips to avoid someone getting seriously cut. It's not a deal breaker, just be aware of it.
Comments about Product: He sits in a guest room that I have done in a folk art theme and he fits right in! Not quite as substantial or heavy as I expected--I think my pets could knock him over but so far they have not.
Comments about Product: I have this handsome pig sitting on my front porch to greet visitors. The only bad thing is it is lightweight. I am afraid to sit on it, so I have a plant on top so no one can sit down. So far has held-up in rain, wind and bright sun. Cute!

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
