Just had to share a cute little fella I picked up at an antique mall in Waukesha, WI a few weeks ago. First up, a snapshot all up close and personal. Doesn't he have a sweet face?
He is made out of chalkware and at one time was a "piggy" bank. Yes, I do know he is a cow. I am assuming that is why he gave up his hope of being a piggy bank.
I have been keeping him in a "pen" (old antique grain sifter), but I let him out to show his size. He is about 10 inches tall, all textured, and cute! You can see in this pic how raised his coat is.
Sometimes he just hangs out on a place mat in front of that cute cow picture you all have seen around blogland. (Hobby Lobby - if any one is interested)
He was $28.00 and I passed him by the first time I saw him. But you all know how that goes! I kept thinking about him and thinking about him over a few weeks. I was so thrilled that he was still there when I went back for him. Now that he is home, I can't figure out why I paused in getting him. But it all had a happy ending!
