Vaquera Couture: A new twist on the Cabeza de Vaca (Cow Heads)

Cow Skull Couture

I dubbed these posts Vaquera Couture because it shows the little pieces of Texas Style that I love. Let’s get started with the quintessential part of any Western Decor: The Cow Head. I grew up with deer heads gallantly hung on paneled walls complete with a built in gun case. Sometimes, we would the lone cow skull hanging in my Abuelito’s house.

Suffice to say, I grew up around hunting. I raised cattle, showed cattle, and it was the essence of farm to plate that so many talk about.  Cow heads have come a long way from being a faded relic of Cowboys past and instead of becoming a new rustic glam for design and decor.
