Mad Cow (Again)


Hi, everyone!  Hope you're having a great weekend!  Remember this post when I shared my new cow obsession and my latest cow acquisitions?  Well, recently my mom and I had a day of junking in Amish Country and we found all of these sweet cow creamers in one day! (Plus an extra one that we posted on our Etsy site :)


Actually, my mom spotted each of these for me (at different antique malls, no less!)  As she pointed them out she laughingly said, "I can't believe that I'm contributing to yet another one of your collections!"  As a side note, my mom totally gets me...she just likes to tease me about my never-ending revolving door of collections.  (When I start weeding out, needing more room for my 'new' collections, I simply take things into the shop-it's a great 'job' perk!)  In spite of her daughter rearranging things every other day and constantly adding new treasures to the mix, she rarely changes things around or starts new collections!


Anyway, back to the cows...I've seen the medium sized creamer before, but never the 'huge' size or the little tiny size.  I thought they just made the cutest trio!


 I decided to put them on one of the shelves in our kitchen.


I think they look at home with the rest of my black and white goodies here.



Last week my friend Lori (who has a fantastic shop, by the way) surprised me with this little guy-so sweet! Love him! (he's so tiny and adorable)


I brought home this little frame yesterday, and my hubby said "Why don't you put that little cow in that frame?"  Brilliant!  (Now you know why I keep him around :)


Next, I just might have to bring this girlie home from our shop...don't you think she'd be a fun addition?


Ok, well, gotta run...I have another new collection I'm working on that I'll share with you soon (I see my mom shaking her head...)  Have a wonderful day! :)

  2. You've got a great collection of cows now! I really like the trio of white cow creamers. I have one in my kitchen as well. Everyone should have at least one cow creamer right??? Love the vignette you put together with all of the white, black and silver.

  3. Yes, bring home the girlie from the shop! Love the collection and she'd be amazing with them. I always imagine the creamer cows are singing with their moo mouths. LOL

  14. Holy Cow! I have collected cows for many years and I love them! I'd have real ones if I could! I actually had to thin the herd a while ago because there were just too many of them! Have you ever seen the purple cow pitchers with their poem? My mom and aunt had them when I was young. I think my dad may still have my mom's. I'll have to ask. Anyway, they look just like yours but are purple and the poem goes "I've never seen a purple cow, I never hope to see one. But I can tell you anyhow, I'd rather see than be one!" Isn't that cute? Anyway, love your pitchers and that little one in the frame is way cute! Have fun! Hugs, Leena

    I had a cow creamer and it went missing and feared broken- (the husband or cats won't fess up)- I've been looking all over for another!

  23. Oh Susan your cows are so adorable! My Hubby loves cows too. I have a picture of him with their cow, Buttercup. It's such a treasure! I gave him an old school slate board with the prettiest cow portrait painted on it one Christmas. he loves it. I've never seen a large cow pitcher like yours - too cool!

    Hugs,Sherry
