I spy with my little eye ......


Today, I've had a lovely day! I had a client to visit at Boonah (one and a half hour drive west of Brisbane) in the countryside. Its such a great place, so quiet and serene, and a really lovely drive.
I saw lots of cows everywhere, (nice, but not that exciting), but then I spotted these beauties! I had to stop and take some pics to share with you all!

This first cow has been made from scrap pieces - 100% recycled goodies. I have a bit of a thing for animal sculptures!!

And this cow (you might need to enlarge the pic to see it well - sorry I didn't wanna go walking through the long grass as its snake season to get a close-up, and I got scared)!
This one is a burnt tree stump, and it has been decorated with white paint to look like a cow! Cute!!
Have a lovely weekend :-)

I do have a thing for cows, I love painting them! I don't blame you for not wanting to walk through the long grass. It's funny how some areas just have that snaky feel to them.

"Cute?" Strikes me as bizzare, but then maybe I need to live in Australia to fully get it! :) Love the lanterns btw on the side bar. nice to meet you. Glad you can come to Tea!

What a great idea to breath new life into an otherwise spent tree stump. Very cute find, thank you for sharing these snaps :)
