Frenchie the Cow


You know that feeling when you fall in love?  Does it often happen to you in a store?  Well, yesterday I was in Tenille and Company in Atlanta and I locked eyes with Frenchie the Cow and I was a goner.




Look!  She's a trick cow.  She holds a salt and pepper shaker set that is just the right color to go with many of my cream/taupe/linen colored dishes. 




She looks just like a piece of French carved folk art.



Look at the rivets on her canvas.

The detail is just amazing. 


 


I think Frenchie and I will have a long, happy relationship.  Am I gushing?


I'm linking up with Barnyard Bash blog party at Happier Than a Pig in Mud.

  3. She's certainly perfect for the Barnyard Bash. A very unusual salt and pepper holder. I bet you have the beginnings of a collection.

  6. That is an original...well maybe just she and her sisters, but I doubt I will ever see one like that. And between holding S&P you could put small pots of greenery (herbs?) for her to carry.
    Wearing her blanket (long johns?) she is perfect for any winter decor.

  9. Linda, I'm very late in arriving to your party. Life has gotten in the way of late when it comes to making some visits.
    Love your Frenchie cow. I think I'm in love too. I'm going to give Tenile & Co. a call to see if she has a sister that could come to TX.

    Thank you for visiting my Barnyard Bash post and directing me over to your blog. I'm thrilled to find you! In fact, I'm now your newest follower and A Toile Tale is now on the Blog Role on the sidebar to Hyacinths for the Soul.
