Cows, Gotta' Love 'em

Why is it that cows remind me of French farmlands and the country.  Anyway, I love cows.  I found these two at GW last week for $2.99 each.  I had a place for one, and thought a friend of mine would like the other one.



See it is a hook.  Isn't that wonderful.


I thought it would be fabulous on the wall with a tea towel or an apron.  However I don't have any walls in my kitchen, so the side of the island, next to the sink is where I put mine.


Isn't it cute with a checked tea towel.


How fun is this.  Don't you love it when you find something unusual.

So, what have you found lately that is fun and different.

  12. Hi Marty, I love your cows--love love love them! I was looking at some similar at Pierre Deux before they went out of business! The only interesting thing I have found recently was a game board at an antique store, but I did not buy it. Hmmm...I do keep thinking about it! Linda

  13. Marty, I love your cow towel holder. It's so French and small enough to not to stick out too far on the side of your island. The brown and cream checked towel is perfect.

  36. I saw the same pair of cows at my GW, I passed them up because I don't have a cow "theme" but this looks so cute in your kitchen, I'm wishing now I would have bought them. Love your site, my first time visiting from Pinterest.
