Where Is Herley Now?

Hi friends!
Remember Herley from this post? (take a look if you have a quick sec)
Well, he  has made his way in from the dining room into the living room where we spend most all of our time.
Yep, he is moving up in this family, and no one is complaining.
See where my buddy, Herley, is now.

Isn’t he just gorgeous standing there so strong, tall and proud?

Do you remember me telling you that he came from Goodwill?  I am still thrilled that I found him.

Now I ask…how crazy is it that I have such a fond affection for this painting?
Hope you are all doing great and staying cool and having fun this summer! 
Blessings to you all!

Partying at Marty's tonight for her Tabletop Tuesday party.

Also headed over to Capers of the Vintage Vixens for a great party where etsy shop owners are given a place to advertsie their shop for FREE!!  Hooray for free advertising and for friends who make that available.  Thanks so much.

Also headed over to share this treasure at White Ironstone Cottage for her Treasure Chest Friday

Amy, I love that cow. Seriously. I have been looking for a cow print for quite some time. This is encouraging....maybe I'll find a good one like you did! Linda

I LOVE that painting! I remember when you originally posted about it. I can't believe someone would donate something so wonderful to Goodwill. I'm glad to see you display him so prominently :)

Jenni said...

I think he is so cute! And the painting looks perfect tucked at the back of the little table. I also LOVE the whole arrangement with the sweet chairs on each side, and the cute pillows! Perfection! :)

Did you have a good Monday? I hope so, and I also hope you have a good and restful night. :)

Blessings,
Jenni

Oh Amy, I just love Harley. Don't know how I missed your former post on him, but the name is perfect and the fact that he reminds you of two such special people in your life.
I love finding something that just tugs at my heart, yet everyone thinks I have lost my marbles.(lol)
Display him proudly. I think he looks great where you have him. Have a great day.

LOL! Amy, do NOT listen to that crazy lady, Nana Diana! lolol! Oh my goodness, she had me laughing so hard! :0 I love Herley, too. I think the colors in that painting are so pretty, and he looks perfect next to those pitchers! So glad that the clan has embraced Herley into the fold! :)

Oh isn't he just splendid sitting there on your wonderful table! I love him, still. He should be proudly displayed, after all, he's gorgeous :)
I've been telling Shannon I want a painting of a cow...and then you posted about Herley again :)
And those enamel pitchers look great with him. Love the green one!!
