B.O.D....

anyone sick of the whole cow thing yet?

i thought that i've found all there is...

i promised myself that i wouldn't bring anything else with a cow on it home...

BUT....

look what i've found...


Photobucket

on burlap...

i know...

*bliss*...

that's not all either...


Photobucket

be still my prairie heart...


Photobucket

also on burlap...

*bliss*

right now they are displayed in the shop...not priced...

i know shameful...

the husband likes to remind me that the point of having a shop is to sell stuff...

hhhmmm...

evidently he has been bitten by the cow bug yet...

i think he gets enough of them during the day...

then to have to come home to see them on the walls...

it could be worse right?!?!...

hello....

*sigh*...

i'm afraid i've even started begging people to be on the lookout for cows...

my mom and stepdad recently went back to scotland to visit...

guess what i asked them to look for...

yep, bovines....

they did not disappoint...


Photobucket

this print from 1881 came to live on the prairie...

i know...

i do believe i'm obsessed...

b.o.d.

bovine obsessed disorder...

see there is a name for it...

now if only there was a cure...

hhhmmm....

what a fun and cute post! It had me laughing. Love your cows! I tried a cow theme once.. they looked ridiculous next to my shells and to the beach pictures. Love them though! I will just enjoy yours.

okay... i lied... i only tried one cow. it was red (i know- there is also no red in my house) I just liked it cuz it was on linen and said Le beoff. so i really loved it. My mom told me it wouldn't go but I was hoping she was wrong. It made me so happy for a very short while until it found it's destiny in the garage sale pile.

Wow! I love these prints. Please let us know if you decide to part with them. (or you are able to find more for your Esty shop) Thanks!

I love your cow pictures.

My grandfather, father and brother showed cattle for years and I have several photos of them with their cattle. I even have some of my dad as a little fellow with his prize jersey. Maybe I need to do a little enlarging.

Glad you shared yours in all there beauty.

OH my mercy......These are GORGEOUS! Nothing better to spend a calf check on than cow pictures, right? You wonder why our husbands insert eye roll here......

Sparrow said...

Cows never looked so gorgeous! Yes, you definitely sound like you've got a bad case of B.O.D and about the only way you can cure that one is to walk in a paddock full of cow pats. That might help take the shine off!

Preppy Mama said...

Love them. I could never have a shop I would have such a hard time parting with things!

Love, love, LOVE the cows :)

OH I love that top picture! I don't have cows in my home but I would make an exception for the ones you have! It would be hard for me to give them up too...Good luck! Theresa

My Yellow House said...

Hurry up and price them! I love the first one!! The cure is to keep finding them and incorporate as many as you can into your home! You are really finding some great ones - they all have such an old classic look to them...

I might need just one cow to mix in with all my birds ~ :)

I love cows...especially on burlap! We live right next to a farm and all the holstein cows come a runnin' when it's dinner time. It's my favorite thing to watch.

chasity said...

i was fate for you to find these treasures... :)

Dionne said...

How lovely! ON burlap too! Wow. What a great find!

Ms. Robinson said...

i don't blame you, these pics are the best. you keep them...

Anna said...

Love it!! The burlap seals the deal for me...I want!

Elizabeth (blue clear sky) said...

Be still my heart, those are gorgeous!

I was hit by B.O.D. many years ago and can't seem to shake it either (and we don't live on a farm.) Funny enough, in our suburban home we are raising two boys (with visits to family farms), one of whom is 13 and is totally cow obsessed. He is a 4-H'er in dairy and beef and saved all his birthday money for two years to buy his first Holstein calf (that he keeps at his uncle's, 2 hours away.)

Thanks for sharing your obsession!

I love cows too...something about their sweet disposition and their beautiful soulful eyes.

When my oldest was about 13 she collected b&w cows, stuffed, painted you name it...if she saw it we bought it. We even went to Vermont so she could she a jersey cow farm up close and personal...and we ate at the original Ben & Jerry's before they were a household name and PMS requirement :)
So...no Kristin, never tired of cows. Great! now every time I see one I'll think of you. *sigh*

You're too cute. That's all I have to say.

Jennifer said...

I think they are great! :)

Cathy said...

LOVE them! Clearly, from your comments, you're preaching to the choir, sister. I just bought a cow print at an antique store (not exactly what I had in mind, but "COWS! THERE'S COWS ON THIS OLD PICTURE!", so it's home now. {I thought of you when I was looking at it!}

Martha said...

those are amazing and so wonderful! I love your obsessions and you are just so darn cute!!!

AntiqueChase said...
