Holy Cow

I can't believe it is Thursday already. Having sick kids all week really blurs the days together. Even though I didn't miss any work.They have been  to the doctor and tested negative for Ebola and the Flu. Since the fever has passed I believe its time for them to rejoin the world of the living.

So awhile back I mentioned that I had no clue where I want to go with decorating my house. Whenever I ask moan to people that I am stuck and need help, they so helpfully tell me that its my house and that I can do whatever I want. Completely missing the part where I don't know what I want. But, tonight it all came together. At least for the kitchen it did.

I had to drive to Lexington after work to get my stitches out. I had visions of all the pinterest wreaths dancing in my head, so I swung by Hobby Lobby to get some supplies. While there I walked through the wall art (because it was 50% off) and I was hoping to get inspired. OMG did I ever.

I love cows. I have a cow tattoo, of my stuffed cow I use to sleep with, but now has a place of honor in my bedroom. I have paired down most of my cow stuff over the years because as much as I love cows, I am not a fan of country. At least not the kind of country I am use to seeing. Most of the cow things I have now are based on the Cow Parade Cows. I'm sad several of my cow parade cows died a premature death thanks to the pets/kids/drunk visitors.

Anyway......I found this print. Please overlook the lovely iphone quality.  It was on sale and I had to have it. It already matches the red walls that the house came with, I'm still iffy on keeping it red or painting. But I know for sure the rest of the kitchen will be decorated around this cow. I feel like I need to give him a name. (my stuffed cow/cow tattoo is named Cowvin) just in case you were curious.

  1. I started reading and I thought, "Cows? That's unusual." But then I saw the painting and immediately understood why you wanted to theme your kitchen around it. While traveling last year, my sisters and I stopped in a cheese shop, and they had a ton of paintings in a similar style to yours, and it was very artsy and rustic at the same time. It looks great on that red wall!

  2. Thanks. I was so excited to find it, and to think I was going to paint over the red because I couldn't think of anything to go with it.

  3. haha you and your cows, I love it. The painting is so you. And you wouldn't even have to keep the red, it has a lot of colors in it!
