For the longest time I’ve been on the hunt for a cow picture for the kitchen. Since I want to keep a farmhouse feel in this part of the house, what better way to accomplish this than with a farm animal? I found lots of beautiful cow paintings for hundreds of dollars but as usual, I was looking for a bargain … and I found one! But when given the option of choosing a cow, lamb or pig … in the end I opted for the lamb.
Morning sunshine filled the kitchen today as it warmed up to 50+ degrees outside. It was a welcome relief after the cold and snow. Our Easter weekend is going to be very enjoyable with more sunshine and temperatures hovering in the upper 50s.
While I was hanging the lamb picture, I reflected on the fact that it was Good Friday and the Lamb of God sacrificed His life for the salvation of the world. Although the crucifixion was tragic, it’s hard to be too melancholy on Good Friday when you believe in the power and miracle of the resurrection.
I will never tire of white ironstone. I bid on a couple more of these pieces on Ebay and hope I don’t win them all. Sometimes I get carried away and breathe a sigh of relief when I get outbid. Does that ever happen to you?
In case you’re wondering, I found the wooden French Lamb sign at Antique Farm House for just $22. They only carry limited supplies and sell them at a lower price so they tend to run out quickly. Their shipping costs are very reasonable so I like to buy from them.
Hope you enjoy a Happy and Blessed Easter with your loved ones!
