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!

Cross Stitching

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 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!

      I do have a lot of cows. Funny you mention frogs cause I pick up a few here and there for my bathroom decor. I've been working on a frog cross stitch lately.

      I sure enjoyed reading about your Cow Collection. I used to collect frogs but got rid of them many years ago.

      Where my dad worked when I was a young boy they had a large inflatable cow. Not sure why but it was something I always checked out when visiting him at work.

      @susanholland10: Thank You for sharing that with me. I agree until we are leave it behind then it seems to mean more. I loved growing up on the farm . But moved from it when I was young, As I got on own I longed for all tgat back and missed it; even still today I do.

      My brother loves cows, too. He used to live where there were lots of cows and didn't appreciate them until he moved to the city. He has some really neat cows in his collection. He is so particular about what it can be. A fun lens!
