smitten

BLOGCOWS

Cows are amongst the gentlest of breathing creatures; none show more passionate tenderness to their young when deprived of them; and, in short, I am not ashamed to profess a deep love for these quiet creatures. ~Thomas de Quincey

i suppose i have always loved cows...i mean, really, most teenagers don't go into antique stores and purchase this ceramic cow's head for their mother, do they? {circa 1979}


or buy a spice based on its container?

or go to the lake and buy this antique cow print as a souvenir?

as i looked around my house, camera in hand, i noticed that i have acquired a small herd.  i think i should be living on a farm.


which is why i love kristin over at faded prairie.  she finally diagnosed me with the same sickness as hers...BOD {bovine obsessed disorder}


some women love roses, but me?


i'm smitten with cows

Wow!!! Cows!! Who knew??? I thought your passion was birds?! They are sweet, but I think quiet only in your pictures and ceramics. Real cows are quite loud ;) Happy Day friend.

{but ps: i'm afraid there's going to be problems... none of your cows are facing the same direction ((they're scattered)) yikes!}

Hahaha, so funny. Cows do seem awfully sweet. I'm more of a dog/horse girl myself, though. Haven't had the opportunity to introduce myself to many cows, so who knows! :)

Please know that I wish I had time to comment adequately.
You text and photo essays are superb....
I hope when things/events settle down at The Study that I will be able to do justice to the work of art you are creating on your site.
I neglect my own and your comment opportunity.
Thanks for your work.

Happy 4th!
