Pigs eat cake and the vase is for the (s)wine   runaway

They're not decorative but I would love to own an ice cream maker and a pasta machine. I don't want to buy them brand new because I would only use them infrequently.

I used to have a Stanley cooker (like an Aga) in bright red. Oh it was an amazing 'draw' for everyone to go and stand near it - our home was never cold. I do miss it.

I would love another here in France, but unfortunately our 'downstairs' floor actually has a suspended concrete floor with cellars beneath, so not too sure if it would take the weight.

Something else I would love is a sewing machine with all the different stitches - hemming, embroidery, etc. Currently I have two (one in UK, and another here) very old, but good machines with very basic tools.

I would love to own a life-size driftwood horse.  For those of you who have visited the Eden Project, you will know what I mean.  The skill required to assemble random pieces of driftwood and fashion them into a realistic looking sculpture amazes me.  The horse could stand opposite our sitting room window.  The ideal "pet" requiring no feeding, watering, shoeing, grooming etc.  The prices these sculptures fetch reflect the skill of the artist and are out of our price range but I can dream.

Tina, I have to keep googling things you write! Last week it was Cullen Skink and now these two. I must say I would adore a Wemyss pig, especially the floral sleeping pig - so cute!!
