Elsie the Cow and Family in Person

Elmer, Beauregard, and Elsie the Cow, on the road again

“Elmer is at the left, Elsie at right, and young Beauregard in his playpen. Elsie’s dressing table, made of barrels, has milk bottle lamps and her toiletries include Tail Wave Set, Henna Fur Glaze and Meadow Mud Pack. Elmer’s chair is made of actual wheels with barrel staves for rockers. The sampler over the mantel, Elsie did when she was just a heifer. The candle sticks are half ears of corn and the bed ladders have scythe-handles for supports. Books in the breakfront include The Farmer With Cold Hands, Animal Husbandry and Wifery, and Bulliver’s Travels. Elsie’s dressing table mirror is a large frying pan and the floor lamp is an old churn.”  Can you believe that it was somebody’s job to think all this stuff up?  Be sure to click on the picture to see these details up close.

    Ah, it was quite a roadtrip. The best part was the steak dinner at the end.
