I got these four cute little
for Mother's Day.
Something you may not know about me...
I love cows.
Since the cow bowls were slightly different,
I thought I would make
each place setting
I kept the placemat, the charger and the dinner plate the same each time.
I changed the salad plate, the cow bowl, the vintage linen napkin and the drinking glass.
What a fun difference it made by keeping the base of
but changing the tops.
I don't think I have
I like them all.
Oh the cow bowls! Aren't they wonderful?
I love the metal chargers with the
they are not chargers at all.
They are actually plate holders,
that frame plates
when hung on the wall.
They made perfect chargers tho.
Isn't it great to think outside the box?
Such as using Ball canning jars for drinking glasses.
Although that certainly wasn't my novel idea.
Both of the glasses matched the vintage theme.
I used my wooden cows I got in Europe.
They are hand-carved and very primitive.
I also used two different
pictures for the centerpiece.
Who said pictures were just for the wall?
What is the purpose of a tablescape with four
different place setting?
Two possible centerpieces?
Two different glasses?
To show that it is ok to change things up.
It is ok to think outside the box.
It is ok to be different.
It all started because of the subtle
in four little cow bowls.
How long will I love these?
Till the cows come home!
