Collector happy as a pig in a pen

Joellen Bieber, the proud owner of a collection of approximately 100 pig-themed ornaments is happy as ever to see them return from the Webster Museum in New York where they were on display for over two months.

Her collection spans from stuffed animals to pot holders to magnetsâ€Â¦ and even more items.

Since a teenager, Bieber has been collecting pig ornaments. Although she does not have a favourite, a stuffed pig she received from her grandson about 10 years ago does occupy an important spot over her computer monitor.

Bieber was delighted to lend her collection to the museum as “it gave me an opportunity to advertise the museum to family and friends,” she said.
