Mooove Over!...Making Room for My Vintage Cow Centerpiece!
No…it’s not Baby Kitty, although he is certainly an inspiration in his own right! Guess again…or did my title give it away? lol
Yes…it’s this terrific vintage style cow! Isn’t she fabulous? As soon as I saw her on the shelf, I snatched her right up! And…she was only $3.00! Woo hoo! She is actually appears to be a smaller relative of…
…my favorite sheep figurine that I recently shared in my Faudree inspired living room redo! So you know she had to come home with me!
I started with a wicker tray…a GW find from last year…and added my wicker wrapped bottle collection that I shared with you here…more GW finds!
Next, I layered in a few vintage favorites…
…including my vintage style cow tea towels…
…and some of my vintage silverplate meat forks…two of them in my favorite Rogers Brothers Vintage pattern. They were $5.00 each at an antiques fair! Woo hoo! I love anything with grapes…my favorite motif!
I also added this wonderful vintage Depression glass butter dish in green…a gift from my mother.
And do you see the etching around the edge? The dish was used at a dinner during the Carter administration! Cool, huh?
Put it all together and…voilà!…a vintage-y centerpiece starring my favorite new cow! Not bad for a $3.00 investment, huh?
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed a little peek at my vintage cow centerpiece! Please visit these wonderful bloggers and their beautiful blogs to see what they are up to and to find a list of this week’s participants!
