I thought the cows came home....

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a small update in the kitchen.  I have a corner sink with windows on either side (see picture in my header). I have been looking for the longest time for something to put over the windows. The problem is every piece of art I have found has not run horizontal but vertical. Well a few weeks ago I had taken my Mom to Rooms to Go for a new bed since she was down sizing.  There was a big sign on the door all accessories where 75% off!! Yes you read that right.  I hate to admit it, but my eyes glazed and I sorta abandoned Mom while I did a quick turn around the store to see what was available.


Sorry for the washed out picture, having camera problems and am using my point and shoot.  Anyhoo - I was so excited to find these cow pictures - painted on canvas, stretched over a box type frame and the perfect size for over the windows.  After admiring them on the counter top and then the Mister hanging them for me- well I loved these cows!! Now - how many of you have noticed there is only one cow?! Yes, it took my 14 year old son to point out that the one on the right is a bull!!! Much joking at my expense then took place - even though the Mister did not notice either!

 
Bull or Cows...it really makes this corner look more finished.  Oh, forgot that these pictures where only $30 each! I also picked up a few more bargain's that I will share soon.

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate your taking the time to leave me a comment.

I like the cows/bulls over the sink area. Draws the eye up and something cute to look at. Also you asked me how long the clematis blooms lasted that I cut for the table. I was curious, too, on how long they would last since I had never cut them before, and they lasted for about a week then started to get brown spots. So I was happy to see how long they looked good. Thanks.

I love those new pictures!! I love cow pics anyway. I have a few myself. I'm like you, who cares if it's a bull or cow. I group them all the same. Ha!
