The Colorful Cow


I saw pictures of this cow in several magazines.
I had even seen it in a catalog.
I was drawn to the colors.

Then one day I happened upon the painting in Kirklands.

I had been saving a gift card I was given for Christmas.
And, I had a coupon on my phone.
The timing was perfect.
She is mine.

Until the painting does not fit into my SUV.
I took it back to the store.
Not to return it, but to hold for later.

I told my husband I needed the truck.
Did Mr. M. want me to pick it up myself or did he want to come.

He came.
He did not like the painting.
He wanted to know if I was joking.
In fact, there was another woman wanting to buy the painting too.
He was just about to ask the sales person if they had actually sold any,
when he witnessed two being sold within minutes.
 He was dumbfounded.

 he said
 if you love it,
 then I love it,
 I want to you to be happy.

Perfect colors for Spring and Summer.

As you can see, it is a huge painting.
I have not picked the permanent placement yet.
For now I like to see her when I during the day when I walk through the hallway.

I have to tell you a funny story about the picture.
As I said earlier, Mr. M. really didn't like it, but he knew I did.
The Monday after I bought the painting we went to see the new movie; 
The Longest Ride.

We both really liked the movie.
I don't want to give the story away,
 but there are two love stories in this movie.
If you have seen it, you will understand.
There is a line in the movie
 when the husband says something to his wife about a painting.

After seeing the movie, I looked at Mr. M. and said "we're keeping the cow aren't we?"  He said "if you love it, then I love it."

The cow is still in the hallway.

Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Randomness After A LONG Break

Spring at Arbor House Lane.
Randomness around the house.

It has been a LONG time.
I have been here, just in the background.

Hydrangeas left over from Mother's Day.
I love the purple with the white in the mudroom.

I switched out the aqua cabinet in the mud room for the white one.
I am not sure if it will stay all summer.

I have been craving some color.
That usually happens after a 

As you can see, I still have some Easter to put away.

I am so ready to move from house gardens to yards gardens.
The weeds are multiplying.

Sunlight shinning in the living room.

The dinning room is always ready for dinner guests.

Our master bed room.

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by.
