Vintage Sweet Lambs

I have had an upside down week. Actually my spring and summer was full of loss and it seems to be starting all over again this fall! But instead of dwelling on sadness I want to smile so I pulled out my two precious lambs and my baby block that I found for pennies each at the thrift stores. I remember these lil lambs when I had my first child. They were popular to give a floral arrangement to a new mom and baby! I had grand plans to use them for some great craft project but they sit in my bedroom filled with a  variety of things, paperclips, eye liners, receipts, notes and other miscellaneous items.
I hope you will stop by Suzanne's blog and join the fun sharing your vintage items with all of us. Have a great week and please stop by to visit all the participates.

What adorable lambs! I am sorry that you have been having a tough time. I'm sending prayers and good thoughts your way. I just lost my Daddy in June. It's been a tough summer. Have faith!

Your little lamb planters are so cute. I have a similar one that I bring out at Easter time. They used to make the cutest little planters!! Now, not so much.
Sorry you are having a bad week. Sending hugs to you.

I remember getting a planter (just like the cute one with the wagon) for my first child's birth. I sure wish I would have kept it!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Come back again soon because I will be putting together a giveaway for my 100th follower.

Very cute. I remember getting these when my babies were born. Do they still make these?? I haven't seen any in a long time.

G'eve Anne ~ I love your previous write & those darling babies ... what a fabulous artist.

My Mother used to have a few of these darling lambs ... they are handy decorations aren't they. Love them.

Sorry I have not been with you more lately. We finally finished both house constructions & took off for 2 weeks. I apologize, but will be better now.

Oh Anne Sweetie...
What a beautiful share this evening.
I absolutely adore this planters. I still have several that I received when the kids were born. My favorite is the little musical elephant I still have. It has a little hairline crack in it from age, but it still plays and I still love it as much as the day it came to me from Moma and Daddy.

Does that little lamb just not drip with love and happiness? Oh thank you for the beautiful share and for reminding me of mine packed away for safe keeping.

I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend.

Many hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry
