Hey all my friends.
I guess it’s because my grandfather, father and brother used to show Jersey cows, and my other grandfather was a cattle trader, that I just have “the love of cows” in my blood.
I have some great old black and white snap shots of my father and grandfather with their show cows that I am going to try and enlarge to use. I also have lots of their ribbons and even a few silver trophy bowls that they won. Such awesome memorabilia.
I have recently been on a cow hunt. Now, I don’t want just any old cow. I want it to have the right look. You know what I mean….right?
Let me show you a couple that I have recently brought home.
See him sitting way down there on my white bench.
Here he is a little closer up…
My friend, Kim, made me this pillow. Remember her etsy shop giveaway I did a couple of weeks ago. Check out her shop again here.
I also just purchased this great little 8 x10 canvas from Fine Farmhouse and I love it.
I love how subtle this canvas is. Dru did a great job making her look old.
This old wooden screen holds my kitchen essentials. I love to corral things together like this.
Our chickens are laying us lots and lots of eggs right now. We are getting a dozen plus everyday. Thank you my pretty hens…
Now you know I cannot talk about cows and leave out my all time favorite bovine.
Yes, Herley is still my number 1 cow of all times.
I don’t think Herley will ever be replaced. He will always be my favorite and he will always hold a place of honor and distinction in my home.
So now I have three cows. There is one in the kitchen, one in the dining room, and one in the living room. I don’t want to be a collector of cows so I will probably stop soon. A few will do me just fine.
Of course the above comment doesn’t mean that I am going to stop my hunt.
Hope you are having a great week and that the rest of it is blessed beyond measure.
Thanks, as always, for taking your time to visit with me. I know your time is precious.
