A French Lamb Sign for My Farmhouse Kitchen
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.
The lamb picture has soft colors and is just the right size. It also has a worn appearance which I love.
This isn’t exactly the spot I had envisioned for my farm animal friend but it does fit perfectly here.
A spring vignette atop the bead board cabinet welcomes the lamb to the kitchen.
A couple rusty birds lend their support in bringing spring to my farmhouse kitchen.
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.
The oversized grapevine wreath reminds me of the crown of thorns Jesus wore when He was crucified.
And so it seemed apropos that I should hang my lamb sign on Good Friday.
Continuing the farmhouse theme, 3 white ironstone pitchers were added to the little shelf next to the lamb sign.
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!

Very good choice, the lamb conveys ideas of innocence and new beginning. It’s perfect in your kitchen and the colours are probably softer than with a cow painting!

What a sweet find! I too love farm animal pictures.I am on the hunt for a cow print.May have to wait though.Oh yes I too have over bid on things.
Have a wonderful Easter!
I have that same print! My sister gave it to me for Christmas and I love having it in my kitchen. Also thinking it might be fun to put it in my dining room for awhile.
Gorgeous, Jennifer! Love you lamb sign, very pretty!!!
Wishing you and your family a wonderful and happy Easter!
Hope you had a fantastic Easter 🙂 I love your new lamb! It reminds me of the countryside in the UK. My daughter lives there and we went to visit last year at this time. It seemed that everyone had sheep in their backyard! It’s a lovely addition to your kitchen.
I just love your kitchen! Everything about it is so pretty.
Great pics and beautiful decor!
I would love if you link this to my party:
Love your vignette, and your new picture, good job girl.
Oh, what a darling lamp sign. I think it looks great right where you have it and the vignette on the cabinet looks so cute!
Hope you had a great Easter.
Be a sweetie,
Love that sign and the white pitchers!
lambs are cuter than cows anyway! 🙂
The lamb was a great addition to your vignette. I loved your wonderful porch last week too.
The thought you placed behind each item in your vignette made the significance of Easter special. Love the lamb – he looks perfectly at home above the gorgeous bead board cabinet.
SIGH! Your kitchen is speaking my love language! It reminds me of country living at it’s best! What a darling lamb… he found a perfect home there!
Love your lamb, looks so nice above your amazing chest!
What a beautiful room. I love the new cow art!! I’m especially jealous of all that great sunshine flowing in!!

Loving your french lamb!
Beautiful! I love the lamb! I was at my in-laws farm this weekend, and I took several pictures of cows. I am going to try to paint one?! We’ll see how it goes! Life to the full! Melissa
Good choice…take a lamb over a cow any day! Your white kitchen continues to inspire me. The birdcage/cloche with the ivy is perfect.
Lovely! I like your thoughtfulness in the symbolism for Easter. The three pitchers could make you think of the Trinity, too. Hmm.
Jennifer this is so pretty. I love looking at your kitchen so bright and cheery. Have a great week end.
Love your style!! Linda
So pretty~ love your sheep artwork and your room! Thanks for sharing at Feathered Nest Friday!
