Antique Scales and a Cow

I wanted to change up the kitchen island just a bit, so I pulled together a couple of my favorite things to play with.  My antique scale and my favorite cow figure.





 I polished up the brass trays and added a sweet little bird and a couple of faux succulents.






 This cow is so fun, I love his face, he looks so sweet.





 Just a subtle touch of spring.

  2. Hi Marty! I love this sweet vignette! Those little succulents look very much 'real'! I've always loved that beautiful scale you have. I've just found another one but it's just the typical style. Your little cow is so cute too. I'm in a cow loving mood at the moment! Hope you're having a nice weekend.
    Be a sweetie,

  16. Marty,
    Your kitchen vignette with the Antique scales and your adorable cow sweetly usher in Spring!
    Cute succlents and bird atop the brass scale!
    Spring is making a slow arrival here on the Prairie.
    We are still seeing "brown" outside our Patio door.
    Once the Spring rains return our world should become a showstopping shade of green!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  37. The cow is beautiful and the vignette is very clever, I love it...just wishing we were entering spring and not autumn here in NZ. Although in saying this we are still having summer like weather which is amazing.
