Holy Cow!

Hey Y'all!  We have a new letter at The Craft Barn
The letter is 'U' and all I can say is my entry is an "udder" disaster.  Can you guess what my word is?



That is a baby goat nursing from that Holy Cow!  I will not show my goats this picture  cause the next thing I know they will want their own cow!!!!

It seemed like such a good idea at the time, but as they say, one cannot cry over spilt milk!!

You know I appreciate you visit and kind (and remember I said kind) comments!!!!

Well, I think it's udderly luvverly! It reminds me of when we took our children to stay on a farm when they were small and they got to feed a calf from a bottle and its warm little tongue lapped the spilt milk from my son's fingers! I love the little pail tipping and that picture of the cow! A great word! Julie Ann xxx
