Bovine Beauty

Standard

Yeah, I know the name of my blog is “lilruby jewelry”, not “lilruby everything except jewelry” but to be honest, my jewelry mojo is in a lull right now and is on a short hiatus.

In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying the incredible beauty of these fall mornings. After the nasty drought we had this summer I wasn’t expecting a pretty fall, but it really has been! When I came upon this idyllic scene of the sun coming up over a pasture of Holstein cows this morning I just had to hit the brakes and pull over.

I expected these young cows to be skittish, but as soon as I walked up to the fence and started jabbering at them they came to see what I was up to.

 

Before long I had several wet noses sniffing at my camera while gorgeous chocolate brown eyes gazed at me from under long, girlish lashes!

She’s even wearing earrings!

After a few minutes I had to get back on my way to work, but I really enjoyed my visit with these bovine beauties!

About lilruby jewelry

My name is Joan Williams and I'm a self taught jewelry designer and mixed media artist. I was born and raised in the Chicago area, and I now live in the Missouri Ozarks with my husband, son and jillions of beads - along with lots of ephemera and stuff that my packrat ancestors saved (and I'm so glad they did)! My passion is creating jewelry that bears the patina of time and travel, using a blend of new components and found objects. I'm also crazy about antiques, horses, flowers, rusty hinges and chipped paint, so you never know what I might be inspired to talk about. I hope you'll stop by from time to time to see what I'm up to! Click below to visit my Etsy shop and my Facebook page, and to see additional photos on Flickr.

    • Thanks! I’m learning that creativity comes back quicker if I don’t stress out about it and just try to channel it in other ways.
      I’ve always loved cows, especially Holsteins as there were a lot of dairy farms in northern Illinois where I grew up.

  1. I think those are the cleanest cows I’ve ever seen! I happen to adore then as well. Thanks for sharing the photos, nice to see first thing in the morning.
