A long time ago I bought a cardboard cow and a matching pig. They were on clearance and I liked them but they didn’t have quite enough oomph. They looked like brown paper bags, and that look just didn’t go with my dining room. They needed a little something to brighten them up.
Obviously this is them in their natural habitat. Ooooor it’s them in my front yard moments before my handy dandy spray paint jumped into action.
I walked by them on my way to paint my macaron ornaments and figured they should join the paint party.
I stared at these guys in their “meh” state for years…yes years, and in 10 seconds I decided I loved them. See why?
They remind me of brass animals that are so trendy right now.
My daughter even dressed them up for Christmas.
