I have quite the collection of barnyard animals - well, replicas of barnyard animals - in my kitchen. It started out when I learned that it's good luck to have a rooster in your kitchen! Well, that's all I needed to hear, because roosters are adorable. Don't you agree?
I found the cute little rooster hanging there above my olive oil, and he was perfect.
I was content.
Then I found these two. I thought, "Nothing would make that rooster cuter than a couple barnyard friends to make him look more at home!"
So they came home with me, too, and my kitchen suddenly had some of the country charm I'm always trying to pull off. Let me give you a disclaimer: I'm a farm girl through & through, but the farm I grew up on hasn't had livestock since I was about eight, and at that, I wasn't a helper where livestock was concerned. However, I can't think of anything prettier than a black cow with a dusting of snow on its back...I'm sorry if I've lost you!
I just love it, and when I saw all these cuties in my kitchen, I felt even more at home. But three was enough! I think those are the famous last words of people with seven kids.
As you can tell, the barnyard grew when I got this cute rooster Scentsy, who has the dual-purpose of being cuter than I can handle while also giving off a lovely citrus smell! Shortly after this guy joined us, the cow creamer in the first picture found his way to my house (Is it a girl if it's a creamer??? Please ignore me.), and after rearranging for a few days, I decided they all just have to stay in the kitchen. Who would have a cow in their living room? :) Anyway, I'm clearly a little obsessed, and I'd love suggestions on where the cow and the pig should reside - I don't think they look too comfy on the stove.
Unrelated, my mind is in constant wonder about what I could do with a whole house! :)
Happy Friday, all!
