that's the name of my sweet new addition.

I'm really not sure if it's a boy or girl so I thought that clover would be a safe name..

I mean... bless its heart..

It came in a box with the name

Yearling Heifer Head!

I don't know about you, but being called a Heifer just didn't sound nice.. you know.

So maybe you can tell me?

Is a heifer a boy or girl?

OK... grazing on...

I first fell in love with clover over at Miss Mustard Seeds kitchen.

You can see more of her beautiful home here

And after I painted the butchers chart for my dinning room... 

I just knew...

See that wreath on the left below?

That's Clover's new hangout...

The family took  some time getting acquainted with clover.

It's not every day you see a cow head coming from a wall..

But they have adjusted nicely and have become quite fond..

OK.. fond might be going just a tad bit  too far..

but because they love me...

they tolerate haha.

I think it's just precious!

I found Clover here.

As soon as they listed these, I jumped on it.

You have to be lightin' speed fast cause they sell out in minutes.

I'm not sure when they will be back but I will keep you posted.

Clover came all snuggled in a bed of paper and weighed in at a proud 7.5 lbs.

I'm really not sure what material these guys are made of...

To me they almost look like bricks or a type of stone.

You can see the texture up close.

The photo below looks smooth but it really has the feeling of stone.

I'm sure you can guess now that I'm itching to make my  range hood like Miss Mustard Seed's.

I just love the look of those.

We have a microwave above ours now.

That has been our  my problem.. the microwave.

It's just ugly.

Guess what?

It died this weekend!!

Most would be sad for a loss as such.

I'm finding it may be just the step closer I need to getting that range hood I need want.

I'm trying to convince the Mr. that we can get a smaller one and hide it somewhere.

So far he is not buying into my idea.

So the question is...

Where is your microwave located and have you any ideas for a plan?

xoxo Susie


  1. A heifer is a girl! I love Clover--want one for my own farmhouse!

  2. Yes, she's a girl! But I'm far more practical and would want to keep the microwave above the stove unless it could fit in a cabinet somewhere. Countertop micros annoy me!

    1. Hi missy! I'm with you on the microwave. I'm hoping to replace it with a smaller one and place it under a cabinet. Fingers crossed

  3. Clover is definitely a girl! Love the name. She looks so cute next to your latest painting, all tho, that butcher's chart might scare her just a little bit.


    1. Too funny mrs Judy! I was think the same thing.. I would not want to be a cow haha

  4. I got my "heifer" in a few weeks ago and can't wait to put her(him?) up. I have a boxwood wreath but i'm not sure if it's going to go around heifer's friend has the same wreath and had to cut hers to make it fit around her heifers head...what size is your wreath? check out my blog later this week (fingers crossed) and see my heifer...guess i'll have to name her!

    1. Hi Judy! Yay!! I went from behind to place her wreath. Her nose was too big for my wreath too. Hope you enjoy yours too

  5. I bought a "Clover," too, but I named *her* Beulah. I, too, had to have the boxwood wreath, so I made one myself b/c I didn't want to spend $65 on one. My husband is being very patient with my adoration of Beulah and her presence in our kitchen/dining room space -- tee hee.
    And to wreath (22" diameter) didn't fit over her head. Rather, I slipped the wreath around her neck, then hung her on the wall

    1. Oh what a cute name lol... Love it! I has to put mine on from the back aw well. Wreath was not large enough

    2. thank you ladies for letting me know how to use my wreath....i'm anxious to hang up my heifer!

  6. I had to ask the hubby a heifer is a female that never been pregnant... so Clover works great!

  7. I am so in love with "Clover". I kept putting off buying one, and now you are really making me wish I had just done it!!! Maybe next time. I think the name is perfect!!! Enjoy, and stop and take time to smell the Clover!!! LOL :)

    1. I hope you find one too real soon. I will be on the lookout for y'all.

  8. Clover is so sweet - love her! Best wishes finding a new microwave. Ours has a little built in cubby between our upper and lower cabinets so I hope sizes don't change too much in the future.

    1. Thank you Mindy. I'm hoping to do something similar to yours.

  9. A heifer is a female who hasn't calved yet. Once they do they are cows. Your Clover is a cutie!

    1. Thanks Kelly! Funny how you never stop learning ;)

  10. A heifer is a cow that has never had a calf.

  14. First and foremost, let’s get one thing straight: Bandage Dresses“There’s an incorrect assumption about Herve that it’s only for evening,”Herve Leger Dresses Lubov told me up on the 18th floor of her Oktoberfest Costumes Times Square showroom and headquarters. “It can be worn anytime! People also assume that it should fit really tight, but personally I wear it one size bigger because I like the comfort of it while still getting the silhouette.”Nun Costumes These are the dresses that are coming into our stores and online now, and these are the dresses that are going to show up come Saturday, because as we pointed out in our runway report last season, an Herve Leger show is full of Herve Leger dresses.


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
