Show and Tell Friday - Lambs

Kelli at There Is No Place Like Home hosts a show and tell on Fridays. I used to love show and tell at school when I was a kid. Showing and telling was fun, but so was seeing everyone else's treasures, and deciding that you wanted their stuff for your own. Today, Kelli shared a really cute winter wreath that she made for her front door. All I can think about is how cute it would look on my front door. I don't think I've reached full show and tell maturity. :)

My great grandmother collected lambs. She was a school teacher, and over the years she established quite a collection of little figures, many of which were gifts from her students.
I don't know what ever happened to many of those lambs. My Grandma used to have a glass cabinet full of them in her basement, and I used to love to sit and stare at them.

I am honored to have a few of her sweet lambs today, and they are a few of my favorite things. I love getting them out at Easter, using them for centerpieces in springtime, and displaying them with antique dishes and glassware. There is something gentle and sweet about little lambs, don't you think? Thanks for visiting my show and tell. It's just as fun as I remembered it. :)

Every one of your lambs are so sweet. I just love how you placed the two in the little bowl:)

Thanks for sharing your memories of your grandmother and her collection.

lol, yes you are right about sometimes coveting what everyone else was showing and telling about! That would definitely be the case with your adorable lamb collection...what beauties you have acquired, and to have special pieces from your Grandmother is wonderful. :-)

Love your little lambs! They are so serene and peaceful looking. That they belonged to your Grandmother makes them even more special! Thanks for sharing!

These lambs are the most precious! They may just have to stay out all year! I adore them!
