Ah, la vache!


Pour le Friday FotoFriends de cette semaine gentiment initié par Debbie, je vous fais part de ma fascination pour… les vaches !

C’est un de mes sujets de photographie préférés et aussi le thème dominant de ma déco de cuisine. Aujourd’hui nous nous contenterons d’une seule broderie et deux belles vaches qui ont posé devant l’objectif le weekend dernier.


For this week’s Friday Foto Friends on Debbie’s kind initiative, I have chosen to unveil my fascination for …cows!

They one of my favourite photographic subjects but also the main decorative theme in my kitchen. Here is one of my embroideries on the topic as well as two cows which patiently posed for my camera last weekend.





Peut-être mon attirance pour ces belles bêtes remonte-t-elle à loin, lorsque j’avais cinq ans !

Et je ne suis pas la seule qu’elles attirent comme un aimant !


My attraction for these animals may date back to the old days, when I was five years old !

And it seems that I am not the only one to be attracted to them like a magnet!

En vous souhaitant un "vachement" bon weekend! 😉

  1. Cows have such friendly faces and beautiful eyes... :)
    The ones in your photos are lucky, free to roam on lush grass.

    1. Thank you, Sara! The region where I live is renowned for its cows grazing peacefully in the fields. They can be seen everywhere, mostly white ones (Charolaise) like picture 3. Have a nice evening! Sandrine

  3. Cows are interesting to watch because they are so gentle looking and the photos show that nicely.
    I like your embroidery, so pretty and I also liked seeing your childhood photo!
    Have a lovely weekend.

    1. Thank you, Annie! Yes, I also find that cows have a harmless look in their eyes and some fragility in spite of their big size. Wishing you a nice evening! Sandrine

  4. Люблю сюжеты с деревенскими животными, они такие притягательные, и очень органично смотрятся декором на любой кухне,особенно если стиль кухни - "деревенский".
    Замечательное фото из детства:)
    Такой красивый медальон, просто загляденье. Спасибо за милые сюжеты из жизни:)

  5. Hello dear Sandrine! Love your embroidery with the cute cow! Great work!
    I love cows but unfortunately we only have sheep in our area!
    You can see cows only at the villages or at the countryside!
    The medallion on the facade is very impressive!Like the picture from your childhood!
    Wishing you a lovely evening and a happy weekend!

    1. Thank you, Dimi! The region where I live is renowned for its cows (cattle breeding is the main activity of this rural area). We also have goats that give good milk to make cheese that is savored with Sancerre wine. Simple pleasures!
      I wish you a nice evening!

  6. Cows are wonderful creatures, Sandrine. A field of them on a summer’s day seems to be the very essence of bucolic charm.

    1. Thank you, David and I totally agree with you. The lush green fields sprinkled with the white spots made by the grazing cows are a delight for the eyes and the very identity of the region where I live.

    1. Thank you, Carol! I think they are funny animals, not always easy to take a photograph of because they are quite easily frightened. Wishing you a nice week!

  10. I too love cows. There is always a roving kaleidoscope of black and white cows around here munching grass in the green, green paddocks. Love the photos, especially the one of your Pudding eyeing off the cows. Sweet cross stitch, too.

    1. Thank you, Kim! I am happy not to be the only one loving cows, most people usually laugh at this. Pudding is just as fearful as the cows and would not come too close to them, the fence on the photo gave her confidence to stop and have a look :) Best wishes! Xoxo

  14. Sandrine, what beautiful cows you have! Our more thin. Not such, of course, as in India, but not so powerful :)) What are you, dear in curls! I was also in childhood, but then passed, sorry. I really love curly hair in people!
    Good good embroidery with a cow. And show your kitchen decor! Very interesting!

    1. Thank you, Tatyana! Cows in France are better fed than in India, but the breeds on the photos end up in a plate as steaks!!! Ah yes, this curly hair! I have at last got used to it but I was not so happy with my fate when I was younger and dreamed of straighter hair because curly hair was not so fashionable at the time and I was nicknamed "little sheep"! I hated it! I promise I will show you my kitchen decor as soon as I have reinstalled it in my new house, in July, because a lot of elements are currently already in cardboard boxes.
      Wishing you a nice evening! Sandrine

    2. All the girls who have curly hair dream of straight lines, and all those who have straight lines-they are twisted every day :))) For some reason such a law of psychology.
      I regret that my curly hair almost straightened. But when it rains, they again become curly. My daughter is exactly the same :)
      I'll wait for July :))

  16. Igen, sokan szeretik a teheneket. A lányom is gyűjt minden ilyet: szappantartó, ceruzatartó, én is hímeztem neki Tralala mintát füzetborítónak. A japán tanára, Abe sensei az ablakhoz vitte és hosszan tanulmányozta. A japánok különösen tisztelik a kézi munkát. Elmondta az értéke a tanulási idő elkezdésével kezdődik, mint náluk minden munkának. Érdekes az a világ.

    1. Tralala cows are very cute and funny and your daughter is lucky to have it on a notebook. The Japanese teacher said something very interesting and I wish more people could share his point of view on crafts and manual work. It is too often despised and not taken seriously. Have a nice and creative evening, Beáta! Sandrine

    1. Thank you so much, Debbie! I can understand your daughter who loves these funny pink animals! I hope you were celebrated on Mother's Day, I have not been yet because in France the date for Mother's Day is the last Sunday in May, so I have to wait a little longer! I wish you a happy week!
