Hearts on Noses Sanctuary

The Hearts On Noses sancutuary was started in 2002 by janice Gellett with her first pot bellied pig "Willy", a unkempt stray she discovered on the property when she moved in. in Janices own word's "her passion for helping animals started long ago".
" I guess it all started back when I realized what that black ball of fur was curled up on our living room carpet. I loved you smokey! My life has always had animals in it, from saving bird fallen from nests to the hamsters my brothre had, and of course every kitten I could find skipping home from school. Who would have thougt that little black pig who I found running around the property I just moved into would be the start of one of my biggest love affairs. After all this a pig not a cat , dog or horse which is why I moved here in ther first place. In all my life in every birthday candle wish it was horses I dreamed about. Long flowing manes, tails flying in the wind the shear grace and beauty of them captured my heart. It was not whispered from my lips as I blow the candle out that I really wanted a big, black grunting spoiled and cheeky black pig. I love you Willy, More then you know.... Welcome to my world as life with pigs unfolded.. visit for more info about this wonderful place. Here is another chance to win on my b-day bash blog, you need to tell me what post you saw on what date in order to get this extra chance. ;8)

Noahs Ark Pot Bellied Pig Sanctuary

Noah's Ark PotBelly Pig Sanctuary is located on 30 fenced acres in New Port Richey, Florida. Our Pig Rescue Sanctuary is on the beautiful west coast of the state, just northwest of the Tampa Bay area and a few hours drive from Disney World Theme Parks.
Noah's Ark has been rescuing potbellied pigs for over eight wonderful years. We have seen every facet of the effects abuse and abandonment produce on potbelly pigs and the response and trust that comes from the rescue pigs from the care and affection we provide. The rescue pigs live in an open herd sanctuary in a natural environment. The potbellied pigs share their affection amongst themselves and all who come by to visit.

Tilt Creations

This denim messenger bag was created for Wash - pilot extraordinaire from the Joss Whedon series Firefly & movie Serenity.Wash has a love for plastic dinosaurs and Hawaiian shirts. So I created this bag to act as camouflage while he carries his playthings. An authentic Hawaiian shirt was sacrificed to create the illusion of Wash's own shirt on the flap and backside of this bag. There are pockets on both sides and front under the flap to stow away his plastic dinos. There is also a pocket on the inside for maps and such...or just Zoe's ammo. The strap is adjustable with a parachute clip so the bag can be worn across the body or over one shoulder, making it easier for heists.
