The Cows Are Mooving In

9.23.2011

The last time I visited a local flea market I left with three things and they were all cow related. I didn't even realize it until I was paying for them.


I spied this cow butter dish sitting on a lower shelf and just had to grab it. It is by Farberware and was only twelve dollars. I love adding this to my white and blue collection in the dining room.

 This little fellow was sitting in another booth. I love these old little cow creamers and am working on a collection. It was eight dollars.

The best find of the three is this painting. I have been quite lucky finding some old paintings lately. This one was in a Kelly green frame that I have since switched to another frame.

It was just leaning up against a table on the floor and when I picked it up to look at the price I had to look at it over and over. I even started to ask a passerby if it said what I thought it did. This was only twelve dollars! I just kept looking to make sure I wasn't missing another zero. The painting is signed Ranulph and I did some researching and Ranulph Bye painted over 4000 water colors and oils. Mine is just a print, but it is perfect to me. The mat is covering up the Bye.

Cow number four is this little Delft blue cow creamer that I found last week. Pretty cute for four dollars.

The rest are just some shots of my little herd.





See, I told you the cows are mooving in.

I will show you where the picture ended up soon.
Gone on a little over night trip. Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. How funny that you weren't cow shoping and ended up with all those moo-ers! You will have to start using lots of cream in your coffee now so you can use them!

    I hope you have a nice day or so away- I am so ready to do that myself! xo Diana

  8. I love the play on words in your title of this post! Very clever Watson! Ha! Your herd is growing. I may have to get me a little white cow creamer of my own someday. They're so cute! BTW, I just rec'd my new Southern Living magazine in the mail today (Oct) and saw an article for a weekend getaway in Ashville. You'll have to check it out ASAP! This issue is really good. Such a gorgeous cover too. Have fun this weekend.

  12. Gorgeous photos. The little blue and white creamer is similar to one I have that's a chicken. Have a fun little trip. It's always nice to get away even if it's just for a short while. I'm still pondering the camera investment. Still not sure.
