I Love Collecting Cows
Cow Lover's Collecting
I truly love to collect cows. It's mooing in my house for sure!
I grew up on a Jersey dairy cow farm and that is what inspired me to collect cows. I have a lighted curio case filled to the brim of cow collectibles plus cow kitchen decor and other cows around the house. It's hard to find Jersey cow collectibles so I've collected a lot of black and white cows called Holsteins. Whenever I find a brown cow called a Jersey I snatch it up. Jersey's are my favorite. I was in California a few years ago and can you believe I found a wooden Jersey cow key chain. Of course I snatched it up right away. It was a great find for being so far from home on vacation!
In this article you'll find cows, cows and more cows!
One of the things I love to do is cross stitch. I've made a few cow designs in my lifetime. I even made one for a door prize. It was a Holstein with a sunflower. There are so many different kinds of pattern you can find of cows. I love to find free patterns online. Here is one that I will share with you. It's a really easy simple one.

Cow Tea Kettle
Cow Tea Kettle Story
I use to have one just like this for quite a few years. Then one day I had a mishap with it. I turned on the wrong burner. After realizing that I grabbed the handle without a pot holder I ended up dropping it on the end of counter on the way to throwing it to sink. Burnt the counter but didn't hurt me. Well that was the end to my kettle. I miss it!
