My Red.Neck Chic Hog

Most of you know I have chickens and cats. But, did you know I got myself a Hog? It's true. A Robelyn, Red.Neck Chic special called The Hog. Check out my kick booty, hogalicious purse.

Robelyn. Here's her etsy store. Here's her website. Here's her blog. After enjoying lunch with this entrepreneur Saturday, I was reminded why I like this red.neck. She is good. She has dreams and she has plans. And she makes a bag that is well made, great looking and hardy. Oh, look! I found the history of the hog line of purses. Very entertaining and educational reading.

I've been carrying my Hog for a few months now. There are pockets where I need pockets. The straps are a good length for me. Nothing has fallen off, torn or disappointed me. I am happy. Happy. Happy!

I love nothing more than supporting people I can see with my own two eyes. Those children in foreign countries can throw something together that I can use short term, but this Texas girl sold me with this well made, American made Hog. No worries, far away peeps. She ships!

See what you can do to support her, too. I don't think we've seen the last of this fireball. Oink! Oink!

Happy Wednesday!
