Howdy Nester! Pleasure to meet ya, looks like you are going away on a holiday. I hope it is someplace nice and warm.

Wonderful character, so much fun and that bird is fantastic too!

Hope you are well and staying warm!

Oh I like Nester! He is well dressed, sweet smile, a man...ooops....PIGLET on the move and has a soft spot for BIRDS! My kinda guy! ;-D Come on over!!! (I won't even make you shovel and will hide the bacon....)
Hope you're surviving this rotten weather; I gave in to making a chicken pot pie for dinner and will have to bake something for dessert.
Look out hips, here it comes! Ah-hahahahaha!!!

XXOO~~♥

Oh yes...I like him, too! A proper, preppy piglet, that Nester. For as bad as the weather's been here lately, I'm sure it's equally chilly and harsh your way...sending you warm wishes for a wonderful weekend!!
Tara :D

Nester is quite a dandy and I do adore his pink birdy friend. I love his springtime colors during this month of gray.

roberta baird said...

Oooooh I know that feeling!! And he's a dandy!!!

Missy said...

Nester is wonderful, love the bird on his hat. Your trial piece for Let Freedom Sing is beautiful, well your whole book is actually. Happy weekend!

Kelly Medina said...

How flippin' adorable is he! I'm so glad you got him out for us all to see. Too cute!

Bella Sinclair said...

Him? Make a mess? No, sir, I don't believe it. :) But I guess everyone's getting a little stir crazy over there, being housebound because of all the crazy snow. That's it, Nester! Go hog wild! Yeeehaw!

Hope you have a fantabulously epic and wonderful weekend, Miss V! XOXO

k.h.whitaker said...

he does look a little too dapper to be making a mess Vee, are you sure there wasn't someone else somewhere in there trying to put the blame on him? I love his rolled up pants, too cute as always! Hope the weather isn't too horrible and that you aren't waist deep in snow! Hugs and warm wishes sweetie~

Ces said...

Well, that's the neatest mess I have seen so far. It's going to snow here this evening and tomorrow in the South!!!

Tamara Henderson said...

Nice to meet Nester! He is very well dressed!

S.E.Minegar said...

what a handsome pig! did you get an "ice day" yesterday? we did here in central jersey.

Amalia K said...

Oh now, he can mess around in my head anytime! I love that adorable smug look on his face. :)

Janine said...

Ha ha , that´s great in German we say "You have a bird" or "it beeps in your head" and both means "you are crazy".
I don´t wonder he made a mess in your head when there is a bird on his.
I really love you ;0)

Janine said...

I forgot to ask, you said that you moved. Are you finished that. Is everthing back to normal now?
Hugs

So glad you let him out, to share with the rest of us! He certainly brought a smile to my face today...And he looks like he's headed for some fun of his own! Happy weekend to you! :o)

Dennis Salvatier said...

He looks like a debonair little pig. Very pleasant and sophisticated, indeed. Awesome. Thanks for sharing!

Andrew Finnie said...

well hey, what a great character, very charming debonaire, delightfully anthropomorphic (I had to look that word up) He's a lucky chap to have been in your head :)

greetinks from Oz!

Michaele Razi said...

What a sweet little character. Very dapper! As usual, I love your style and the layout. Wonderful!

Carin Bramsen said...

Your work and your blog are consistently top-notch. What a pleasure!

Jack Foster said...

Nice to meet you Mr. Piglet... or can I call you Nester. Glad you found your way out of Miss Vee’s head and into our hearts! Have a safe trip and give Miss Vee a message for me. ....”Peace, joy and blessings!"

Shell said...

Nester is adorable. I can see why he wanted to come out and say hello to all of us.

Shirley said...

How can Nester cause a mess huh, Vanessa? He's so darned dapper and has such personality. Love all of the grand details..he's like a 2011 version of Paddington with a suitcase! : ) Love your creations and I thank you for releasing him so we can meet him. Wishing you peace through the move..you know I am always here so no need to ever feel belated or anything. I know you're a super duper busy mom (SUPERMOM!) so take it easy and I'm wishing you some personal time for saunas or a spa day soon. Take good care and big hugs to you and your family at this busy, busy time! xoxo

michael robertson said...

Funny, he doesn't look like the kind of pig that would make a mess anywhere!

Hope all is well with you, Vanessa. I see that all this terrible weather we've been getting hasn't affected your creativity one bit! Have a great weekend!

Ann Marie DiVecchia said...

I hope there is more of him coming out of your head. I'd love to know his story...or their story!!! Great characters!!! Where are they going?

Kay Aker said...

A fine mess indeed!

DEB said...

He looks far too dapper to me messin' with your head Vanessa! Too cute!

Well isn't he a prim and proper piggy! He'll be traveling first class, no doubt! I LOVE the piece below-- so many delightful characters and mixes of patterns-- just wonderful!
