My collection of cows - picspam  
This entry is specifically for cowgrrl as I know we both share the love for cows. So here comes my collection in a picspam of 34 pictures no less. We have everything - cups, glasses, plates, figures, door mats, toilet brushs, sponges, key racks and lots, lots more. Cows in all sizes, shapes and forms. Please klick the link to see all the pictures - and enjoy!

Kitchen shelf:



Cereals cups and plate:


Those next glasses held mustard before - we have lots of them with different designs:

Egg cups:

Left is a butter dish and right is a battery crumb sweeper:

Key rack:

Money bank:

Pot cloths and place mats:

Kitchen apron:

Door mat:



The left one is called "Mad Cow". It has BSE. If you press the button, it laughs crazy like the sound on the right side here at this clip: http://home.arcor.de/hschlechter/kuh.htm

Kitchen wall (made with Window Color)

Bathroom - sponge and toilet brush:


Another sponge:

Little ones - see thimble for size reference:

Dust cloth:

You see there is nothing which can't be made in cow design. Now I am very curious to see your collection - please share with us?

Part 2 with many more cows can be found here: http://dieastra.livejournal.com/56106.html

Cute cows! I especially like the big one on the top shelf, left side. And the one that's a timer!
Antjedieastra on November 26th, 2012 09:04 pm (UTC)
The one that's a timer does not ring, it does moo indeed! Need to change the battery, though. Actually, the one in third row, on this round blue thingy, is a timer as well! And next to it two mini flaslights.

Most of it I got as gifts, you know how the people are when they realize you love something!

(just checking - you saw ALL the pictures? There's much more than only the shelf)

Thanks for pointing out the others! The cow soaps make me laugh! And I really like the mugs. This is an impressive collection!
Antjedieastra on November 26th, 2012 10:31 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Same like the cow soaps I also have a sheep and a goose.

Yeah, the collection somehow has crept up on me. I was very surprised how many items I found in my flat once I went looking. It all started some years ago with a cute plushie cow which I bought, and since then family and friends added to the collection. And so far nothing has been in double!

(I always wonder if people realize the cut. I write "Please click the link" and also on the cut itself "more pictures under here" but still often I'm not sure if they really have seen it or only comment on the one teaser picture instead. Not sure what else I could do? Make the link BIGGER, like Peter DeLuise once so famously said? LOL)

Oh, don't go by me. I've been a bit distracted lately, normally I click on the right link. :D

AWW to cute

Would have loved to add the panto cow from Glasgow to my collection, now THAT was cute!

Holy cow! (sorry, it had to be said! :-) ) That's a lot of cows! Waaay more than in my collection, but then I have culled my herd over the years.

At some point I will have to photograph mine as well.
Antje: Straussdieastra on November 26th, 2012 09:01 pm (UTC)
I admit I was a bit surprised myself how many I found the more I looked around! But I really only bought a few of them, most were a gift. And so far nobody has given me something I already had, there are so many different ones out there!

You culled your herd? You cow-murderer, you!

I really look forward to see what is left of it!

PS: What a lovely icon *g*

Wow!! Lots of cool and cute cows!! :D
Antjedieastra on January 19th, 2013 09:35 am (UTC)
A very late thank you - some day I'll also photograph my monkeys, sheep and moose ;)

Really would like to add the panto cow from Glasgow to my collection LOL

Huch,da hat ja jemand einen regelrechten Rinderwahn.;) Nee, Spaß beiseite. Das ist eine Menge Kühe. Die Topflappen sind am coolsten.:)
Antjedieastra on November 29th, 2012 09:06 pm (UTC)
Hehe - ich kann nichts dafür, ich hab die alle geschenkt bekommen ;)
Es fing alles mit einer Plüschkuh an, die ich niedlich fand, und die hab ich mir selbst gekauft. Und Du weißt doch, wie das ist, wenn es sich bei Freunden und Familie rumspricht. Interessanterweise hat aber niemand etwas doppelt geschenkt. Und es gibt wirklich witzige Sachen!

Ich war aber selbst überrascht, wie viele ich in meiner Wohnung fand, als ich erst einmal danach suchte.

Hast Du irgendetwas, das Du so ausgiebig sammelst?
sagestreetsagestreet on November 29th, 2012 10:56 pm (UTC)
Jetzt hätt ich fast gesagt: leere Rotweinflaschen.:) Aber davon abgesehen, nichts was mir jetzt einfällt. Zumindest nichts Plüschiges.

Aber deine Kühe sind zumindest fast alle schwarz und weiß, wie es sich gehört. Nicht lila.;) Das scheinen ja immer mehr Leute zu glauben.
Antjedieastra on November 29th, 2012 11:09 pm (UTC)
Ja, das ist wirklich traurig. Aber doch, ich hab eine lila Milka-Plüschkuh, dann das eine Glas ist von Milka (ich hab ne Menge Schokoladentafeln gegessen, um das zu bekommen!) und die eine Tasse, wo der Alm-Öhi ich weiß nicht was mit der Kuh macht, die war auch mal lila, ist aber jetzt verblichen von der Spülmaschine ;)

Aber was man so hört, sterben die schwarz-weißen wohl auch aus, es stehen jetzt nur noch die braunen auf der Weide. Oh, und wusstest Du, dass Kühe aus Südengland, wenn sie nach Nordengland transportiert werden, sich nicht mit den anderen unterhalten können? Die muhen einen anderen Dialekt.

Ich hab auch noch Schafe und Elche im Angebot (davon aber nicht so viele). Aus Vancouver hab ich mir zwei Elche mitgebracht, einen in der roten Mountie-Uniform, und einen im gelben Regenmantel, weil es doch dort immer regnet. Die mussten einfach sein!

Rotweinflaschen - hehe, netter Versuch ;) Muss ja nichts Plüschiges sein, man kann auch Modelleisenbahnen sammeln oder Fußballsticker oder Bananenaufkleber oder LEGO... hab ich neulich gesehen, es gibt auch LEGO Architektur, da kann man zum Beispiel die Tower-Bridge nachbauen - das ist ja nun was für mich als Bauzeichner!

Das glaub ich sofort. Die Leute sind ja auch kaum zu verstehn.:)

Darauf kann jetzt nur der Klassiker folgen: "Lots of planets have a North..."

Oje, ich geh im Januar noch weiter nördlich, nach Glasgow. Da hab ich echt Angst, dass ich nichts verstehe. Alles wieder nur JBs Schuld.

Yes, it kinda grew, parents and friends always gave me cows as gifts, but I have nothing double, which is amazing!

Awesome! I'd really would like to see your collection one day. When I visit friends and they have something like that on display, I like to go and have a close look.

Speaking of - did you ever see the meme where we all photographed our bookshelves, so that others could see which books we have? Here are my posts:

Lol! I have a feeling you like cows!

I have a friend here in England who also collects cows, but I doubt that she has as many as you have.
Antjedieastra on March 24th, 2013 08:44 pm (UTC)
Why, what makes you think that LOL (I take it you also saw the second post I did yesterday and were led from that to the first post here?)

You know how it is, once you have started you get it as gifts from friends and family.
badly_knitted: Film Star Smilebadly_knitted on March 24th, 2013 10:47 pm (UTC)
Yes, that happened to my sister, she ended up overrun with elephants!

Mum keeps changing what she collects - for a while it was owls, then frogs, then pigs. I don't really collect anything in particular, unless you count my vast collection of semi-precious stones and crystals....
Antjedieastra on March 24th, 2013 10:53 pm (UTC)
I also have a collection of those stickers which are on fruits which come from the South... I sorted them after their countries, some have really nice pictures!
badly_knitted: Film Star Smilebadly_knitted on March 24th, 2013 11:05 pm (UTC)
Pretty! Oh, I forgot, I do collect something! Bookmarks! Mostly the leather kind, but I've got all sorts. Except, like everything else at the moment, they're packed away in a storage warehouse because we need to redecorate the entire house and we had far too much stuff to work around.

I thought I had seen this post before but now looking at it I don't think it I have! Could it be I know more than one person that collects cow items? *Scratches head*. And I see it's from November 2012. Had we met then? Time is so fuzzy sometimes. :-p

At any rate, this is collection is amazing. They must make you so pleased whenever you look at them.

ROFL re the "Mad Cow"!
Antjedieastra on November 13th, 2014 09:34 pm (UTC)
So I just checked and I wrote my first feedback to you on June 19, 2012. The story where Ianto gave Jack a simple order *g* And yes, I remember. So we missed our anniversary! Has it been two years already?

Actually, I should rephrase that. Has it been ONLY two years? I feel as if I have known you all my life!

So, it is possible you have seen my cows before. But surely there are other people out there who collect some as well, I can't be the only one! It all started with one cute plushie and you know how it is, once you admire something, everyone brings you more. That way people always know what to get me. Surprisingly, I never had any double! There are so many things out there, and so many different ones.
Who?Muse: Cats Luke Pawztardisjournal on December 9th, 2014 02:50 am (UTC)
Wow! Nearly 2 1/2 years?!? I agree, it both seems like a long time, and not nearly long enough to encompass the quality of our correspondence! :)

It's hard to say--I might well have seen the cows post, given the date, though it's a bit odd I didn't comment on it. I had a lot more time and for commenting back then. :-p
[fʏʃ]fueschgast on November 16th, 2014 03:09 pm (UTC)
Hee, I have the front right mug too! And at least 3 of the same plushies! XD
Antjedieastra on November 16th, 2014 06:27 pm (UTC)
Heh, how funny!
I must say I am impressed that so far I haven't gotten the same thing twice. There is so much variety out there.

I am looking forward to your picspam!
