Meet My New Cow

9.29.2012

I have always wanted a cow or bull head to hang in my kitchen. It is a very French Country style thing and they have always been a bit too expensive for me until now. Say hello to ?

Well, meet my new cow head. She was sold as "Bessie" on Decor Steals a few weeks back. If you follow me on facebook then you know that yesterday I put this picture up and asked for help naming her. Wow, the response was good.

There were so many cute names like Mootilda, Cocoa, Sunny, Moonerva, Cowpuccina, Gurdy, Petunia,  Elsie and even Meatloaf by a kid and several more. It was fun seeing what y'all would come up with.



Those were all some great ideas. She may just stay the name Bessie that she came with. Do you have any other suggestions? I would love to hear them.

 One funny thing is that Mr. Savvy pointed out the hair in the ears that I didn't even notice. That is, he noticed a week after she was hanging there. Men.

Looks like chance of rain here today.
Have a good one.

Be sure to follow on facebook.

  1. Kim, you are so funny and so right! How many times has my husband asked "Is that new?" Usually, the answer is No! I love Bessie! She looks like a Daisy to me!

  2. The cow is a great addition to a beautiful kitchen. This is close to my "dream" kitchen I had planned in my old house. We bought a new house and moved before we found a contractor.

  3. You kitchen is beautiful with or without Miss Bessie! I participated in your last link party and was thrilled that I received so much new traffic to my site.

    Thank you very, very much!

  4. *** G'morning, Kim!

    I also ordered "her"... she arrived a few days ago, but I haven't opened the box yet (we have houseguests, so am busy, busy, busy right now!)... Our guests leave today, so will open the box then, & salute the new addition to "the family", "Bessie"!!! (Not "original" I know, but she just IS a "Bessie"... to me, at least!!!)...

    Have a wunnnnafaul-a-wunnnaful weekend!
    Thanks,

  7. Hi Kim...I love her and will go to that site to see if they still have any left! She looks lovely right there where she sits, very regal. And yes...husbands always notice the weirdest details..mine does it all the time! Irritates me to high heavens, but as longs as he puts with my decor madness he could keep looking at little things all he wants. Big Hug, Lizy and a big moooo to Cowpuccina!

  8. That is impressive, Kim. Such a great size for your hood. I'd love a rabbit one, but I'm sure those are rare to find. I know what you mean ~ I hung some pictures the other night before my husband came home and he still hasn't said anything about them.

  10. well she is a lovely cow, looks a little lonely though, it would be nice to have another nestled in, thats the farmer in me I suppose, we had a cow that would come up to the house and stick her head in the kitchen window for carrots, this made me think of her, her name was Elsie Sue,
    you have a beautiful kitchen , you truly do,

  13. What a beautiful addition, Kim. I love her! I think I'd just call her LaVache, because she is, after all, Une Vache!

  14. I like the name because it's what I named my cow from Hobby Lobby I got last week. Good name for a cow. I've been looking for those cow prints like you have (LOVE THEM) and can't find any.

  20. I have an original old one that came off an OLD farm.. It has huge metal rods in back of it. I wonder what they were used for? I wanted my hubby to hang it for me but I don't know if I would destroy the value in removing them... but you have inspired me to go look!

  21. I think you should name her "Goldie" because when you found her, you struck gold!

  22. I had not seen your cow, Kim. I must have missed the post. Anyway, I love her. She fits perfect on the hood!

  23. Holy Cow she is darling and terribly French up there presiding over your cooking.

  24. She is definitely a cutie. Kinda bossy looking, too, makin' sure you don't use too much cream. :)

  25. I love it! Very "Charles Faudree." I think you should let your grands name her.

  26. Well congratulations. How bout Savvy Junior?

  27. I like her! No name suggestions for you ... you've already got more than a few good choices in hand. I'm sure the right choice will jump out at you when you least expect it.

    I had a similar head in my kitchen at a prior house ... it was a pig head, tho. I used it to hold my kitchen towel. Now that I think of it, I wonder if I still have that pig? It must be in a box somewhere.

  28. I love where you placed her Kim. I keep walking around my kitchen thinking maybe I need to move mine. We do not have a hood over our stove or I would so copy cat. Hope your weekend is going well. The rain is here. Had to cancel my Round Top Trip.

  32. Love the cow - what ever the name! A fine addition indeed :o) Is it made from cast iron? (Sorry, don't 'do' Facebook.)

  33. How about naming her after a french cattle breed? My top choices are: Lourdais, Laubrac, and Charolais.

  34. She is quite the statement piece over your stove- love her!!! How about naming her Mrs. O'Leary, after the owner of the legendary cow who supposedly started the huge fire in Chicago. Or maybe not, being in the kitchen... Ah, well, whatever you name her, she'll still be fabulous. ;D

  37. Your new little kitchen friend is adorable, Kim. What a calm sweet face she has. (And I like the name 'Bessie' best, I think.) Sorry I haven't been able to stop by more often, but I'm looking forward to catching up over the next few days. I always enjoy your beautiful posts.

  38. I really need this cow! I know you bought from the MMS DECOR STEALS, but any dea where I can get one now? Cramsay@elhlaw.com

  39. I'm wondering - how angled is your hood and how did you attach her?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I just ordered one from DS, it's a little different than Bessie though! Still wondering how you were able to hang it on your hood. It looks to be about the same angle as mine. I think my Hazel will go over my fireplace though. (It has a kitchen side).
