These are a few of my favorite things....

I grew up (for a few years, anyway) on a dairy farm.

That meant LOTS of hard work and long hours.

Hours with what I consider the best animals in the world.

Even before we had the dairy, we had a milk cow.

We milked her by hand.

Twice a day.

Every day.

We had calves.

We also had beef cattle.

I liked those, too....they were really yummy!

But none measured up to my beautiful Holsteins.

Isn't this one a sad sort of way?

I have a collection of cows.



I have this beautiful little lady.

If you came to my house, you'd also get to hear her.

Because she moos every hour.

I <3 my awesome cow clock that my Daddy gave me!

And this one? I LOVE it!! SO adoreable!!

On SO many fronts!

I have another one similar...

In storage.

Because I have no place to display my beauties.

The few I have out are in my kitchen.

I DO have a couple of stuffed little ladies.

They're gorgeous, too.

Someday I'll have a place for all of my beautiful little ladies.

And then I'll get them all out...

And share their beauty with everyone.

Because you know I won't be able to resist their adorableness!!

Very cute cows! I wanted to collect cows when we lived in South Carolina but my collection never too off. I only have two things.. a clock and a basket. They are cute enough though :-)

God bless,
