Cow Appreciation Day

Seems like the perfect time to show a few
cows I have mooing around here.
Here's where they are kept. You can see
them peeking out.
I just had to have a cow creamer.
Then I found this s&p set.
 Then I found this cow pitcher in a thrift shop.
Milk for cereal or a vase for flowers.
 I also gave my mother a cow creamer.
It's now been added to my collection.
 I can put one at each of our place settings.
Everybody gets their own cow.
Check out the napkin rings.
I found these in a thrift shop too.
I made my own foamy soap reusing
this cow labeled wine bottle.
I bought this wine, because of it's unique 
bottle on our trip to North Carolina 
visiting vineyards.
 Real cows have the right of way on the road
that leads to our place in
 North Carolina's Smoky Mountains.
 I love seeing them by the side of the road.
Cow painting I saw in my friend's NC consignment shop
If you see a cow on Cow Appreciation Day
it will bring you good luck.
(OK, I just made that up)
But now you have so..........


  1. Love your sweet cows, Rita. The commercial with the cow in the shower tickles me every time I see it. And there are cows outside my window in the pasture behind us........yup, I'm lucky!

  2. Holy cow that is a great collection you have! Cute post!!

  3. That's so funny I saw three cow items this past weekend! They must be in fashion :) I love hearing the cows from our porch when it's dinner time. They sure let you know when they are hungry. Jennifer

  4. What a great way to appreciate Cows! I have a small "herd", but you really did yours up proud. The table setting was beautifully coordinated with everything complementing each other. Great post! I love the Cow napkin rings!

  5. Oh, what cute cows! I appreciate cows too but I really don't have any!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  6. I love your collection of cute cows! I have them in some lids and napkin rings in black and White cow spots, yours are great in white porcelain! Beautiful post, Rita May.

  7. I love this post!! I didn't know it was National Cow day! But it should be! What an awesome collection you have! 😊


  8. I LOVE all of your cows! I also love your cabin. I grew up in the Smokies so I really enjoyed seeing the photos! And...I have to say that your header always makes me smile! :-) Thanks so much for sharing at The Scoop!...hugs...Debbie

  9. How charming! What is it about little cow pitchers that's so appealing? The only cow accessories we have is our cow kitty, Spenser, and if I may say so, he's pretty darn cute.

  10. These cows cheer me up! So sweet!! I need to do another cow painting!

  11. There's a few cows at my house too. I love yours and the painting at your friends. So fun. Thanks for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  12. I grew up on a farm in PA so these cows just called to me. I love all your cows and your very clever table design is just perfect with them.

  14. Hi: Just found you through Confessions of a Plate Addict and SO GLAD i did! Your cows are darling and I love you entire table setting. I, too, love cows but don't have as many as you. What a deal to find the sitting one...that one is now at Pottery Barn for $39.00! Doesn't that make you feel smart! Congrats on a great post and Blog...I will be back. Visit me at and leave a comment if you want. I just put you on my reading list. {{HUGS}} Joy

  15. Rita, this is adorable! I didn't know it was Cow Appreciation Day. Ha!
    I featured my little cow creamers on my tablescape this week. Stop by when you get the opportunity. It's fun to see your collection. Thanks for sharing this wonderful scape!

  16. Rita, forgot to comment on those adorable napkin rings. What a lucky find! ;-)
