Show and Tell Friday: Lambs

This is my first time to be a part of
Show and Tell Friday.
Cindy at My Romantic Home is our gracious hostess.

With Easter almost here, I thought I would share
a few of my lamb prints and paintings.
I've been collecting for the last seven years.

Some are old, some are new
but all are well loved , and part of my collection.


I think this would have to be my favorite,
love the sweet message of it.


These can be found all around the house,
so I've brought a few of them
 to where the lighting is better.


This painting is in the Living Room,
an Anniversary gift from my husband
a few years ago.




Part of a set of pastoral prints
that were a Christmas gift.




Another very old oval print in
it's original metal frame.




A print of one of William Bouguereau's
famous Madonna and child paintings.


Vintage Western Landscape




This is a Christmas postcard
from the early 1900's.


This is probably the oldest print that I have of sheep.
Love the Country French scene.
(please excuse the glare.)


Another favorite


I also collect vintage Religious images.
This is one of my favorites, with lambs.




Thank you Cindy, at My Romantic Home.


I also am linking up last minute with Laurie,
from Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie,




If you're new to my blog,
I'd love to have you leave a comment
so I can come back and say Hello.

I also have an open Bible Study blog,
please come by for a visit.

Hope you're having a wonderful week before
Easter!

hugs and blessings,
Debra

So sweet.

Debra dear, you had me at 'lamb'. Your paintings are beautiful. I love paintings depicting sheep and paintings with sheep and their herders. Of course my favorites are those with Christ and the lamb.

Thank you for sharing! I love your lamb prints! I have always had a special place in my heart for lambs because of the reference in scripture of us being lambs and Christ being our Shepherd! Have a wonderful weekend!

As soon as I saw your paintings, the words to an anthem we are singing the Sunday after Easter popped into my brain-"Feed my lambs, tend my sheep, over all a vigil keep,..." Thanks for sharing.

Brenda said...

Love all of your prints. You have quite a collection. I have an old one that I would guess has an English country side look of a man walking down a path alongside a river/stream with a group of sheep following. My favorite in my home. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Debra,
I'm over from Cindy's blog. You have a lovely blog and it's nice to 'meet' another Christian sister! Love your lamb paintings! I have a friend here on the Island {also a Christian} who paints Island scenes with sheep in them. Big sellers with the tourists. Thank you for sharing and I hope you have a beautiful weekend. Happy Easter.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Debra,

What a beautiful collection! The first picture with the dog touch me immediately. I think if I ever saw that picture somewhere I would buy it right away. Isn't it amazing how just a little picture can touch us?

Have terrific day!

Hi Debra:
The photo of the peasant girl with the lamb in her arms (and the ewe) is a favorite. My Mum has that one, too. I love it!

Thanks for entering my giveaway, too! Wouldn't be right without you! Good luck!

Girl, that is one amazing collection of art! My sister also loves lambs, I try to send her little things for her collection. She would flip over yours. The old cottage was sweet, tugged at my heart. Lisa

Debra, you have quite a collection of lambs and they are all so sweet. I love the vintage look they all have since I just love old things. They have so much more character than the new.
