YeeHah! Cowhide!

Now as most of you know "I don't do cold weather"!! LOL
This week we've experienced bitterly cold weather for us.  Lows below freezing, oooohsie!  (that's southern for, baby it's cold out there!)
But one good thing about living in Alabama...


 ...wait for it, if you don't like the weather today, wait a couple of days and it will change
(and usually for the warmer and sunnier) And that's what happened yesterday and out the door I scampered!  I was going stir crazy!!

Stopped by a local antique mall and found cows!

Isn't this a pretty picture?              (Louisiana State Exhibit Museum)

No, not the mooing kind...cowhide!

An old cane back chair ready for the dumpster transformed into a thoroughly modern millie...



A transformed trunk...




A stool...


And covering the floor, that's right, cowhide rug...


Did you notice the nailhead trim?  Love it!

My friend and me enjoyed the day and the warmer weather!  How about you?  Are you enjoying this January 2012 doing fun things with your friends?

Have a Blessed Day!!  And see ya down the junkin' road!!

Oh how I wish it were warm here! We probably won't even get any warm-ish days now until spring! Why do I live in New Jersey?!! The cowhide is very cool... very creative uses! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
