My Newest Crush -- Furs and Cowhides

Hello and happy weekend everyone, today I want to share a new crush with you ....Furs and Cowhides....Seems that they are everywhere these days.....Around Christmas-time I purchased this fake throw fur from World Market.


I also found this huge furry floor pillow at World Market......well....let me re-phrase that....I thought it was a floor pillow until I read the tag and it said, "PET BED." DUHHHHHHHH!
but hey, it is a floor pillow now.....lol
on another note, here is a "real furry little something cute" to put a smile on your face..
 Bugsy is our sons pet rabbit
  he spends a lot of time inside, and uses the litter box.
well, enough of the cuteness and back to the subject....here are a few pictures that inspired me ....


I think I will get myself a cowhide rug. World Market has some really nice ones. 
If you like them as much as I do, check out my Pinterest Board

As always thanks so much for stopping by! 
Toodles, Christine

  1. Christine,
    I have a love for furs and cowhides too. I don't have any cowhides at the moment. They do add a flair of design to a room. Loving your decor. You have a lovely home.

  2. I love this post. I want your bunny every time I see him. Darling. K...so I am so gad somebody else looked at pet beds as decor. They make gorgeous beds for our furry friends. I would use them as a floor pillow - what a great idea!!! Hilarious, too! :) Thanks for your sweet comment at Must Love Junk....you are a super fun blog friend! xoxoxo Holly

  3. I have been seeing them a lot too lately Christine. Haven't bought any yet. Yours look great and I thin the dog pillow is a human pillow if you want it to be. Love your furs, but the bunny is still the cutest! lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
    Jann

  4. Furs and leather are so cool - I really thought about buying a awesome cowhide this winter, but it would have been nearly as big as my whole apartment so - no. Perhaps later in my life ; ). I adore the way you styled your living room. I came over from flamingo toes, and I have to take a look around!

  8. I love the look of those 'fur' throws on leather furniture and yours looks wonderful! I never thought to look in the 'pet section' for a fur pillow...great tip! I would like to give our living room a 'lux lodge' look and I think the fur items you've shown would be a good start...and I need your 'coffee table'! Cute bunny!!!!

  18. I've been wanting a cow hide too but so far haven't found one I can afford. I'll have to check World Market. That's funny about the floor pillow (aka a dog bed), sounds like something I would do... but hey, sometimes they make things for our pets that are better than what we have! lol

  22. I love cowhides and have one in the Living room. I don't know what you had to pay for yours, but I have seen them in all prices. We barrel race and there is usually a vendor set up that has the large ones for around $275. simplebutfabulous.blogspot.com

  26. P.S. love your son's bunny, too. What a cutie! Do you think he would like the floor pillow/dog bed. He might think it is his mama. ;-). I love it. Looks great!

  27. This post was done so good, it kept me smiling from the pet pillow to the bunny. I am going to check out the World Market today. Thank you for sharing it on our Four Seasons Blog Hop. Pinning now.

  30. I'm here (for the first time) from Jennifer Rizzo's Fabulously Creative Friday and I came to read your fur and cowhide post.

    We're doing our master bedroom and master bathroom with an Old West theme. We bought a buffalo hide at auction for Dave's side of the bed and I'll be buying a cowhide for my side...after I save up enough "fives" -- every day, I put any five-dollar bills received as change into a special jar. When I have enough, I buy something Dave thinks is too expensive. "But, it's my fives!"

    Another recent auction win was a double-round barber chair for the master bath. Needs lots of restoration and I'm thinking the upholstery should be brown and white cowhide.

    Don't tell Bugsy but we also have two mounted jackalopes.

    Love your website/blog and I'll be signing up for emails.

  37. Ok, the bunny "roasting by the fire" had me cracking up. Glad that reference didn't mean he was dinner, LOL. He's too cute for that! And love your fur throws. Love World Market. And of course you already know about my love of cowhide rugs from visiting my blog (thanks for that BTW). Make sure to show us if you end up getting one!!

  42. Hahaha, I would have thought the same thing and it basically is the same thing just with the word "pet" in the middle, lol. I've been all about the white faux fur and recently bought some fabric to reupholster my dining chair :) Thanks for sharing at The Makers!

  43. I love the texture that these add to the room. It makes it all so cozy. And your bunny using the litter box is a riot! Thanks for sharing at The Makers!

  46. I think your son's bunny is the best fuzzy decor of all! Too cute. I love the pet bed as a floor pillow - that is actually such a great idea. My youngest, who ends up on the floor all the time, would love that! Thanks for linking up to Best of the Nest!
