A girl and her lamb in the dining room


I popped in here Saturday to show my hoard from picking that morning.
I hit a few garage sales but it was a less than an inspirational morning probably because I was looking for something specific. Good furniture for my hoard and all I encountered was plastic and very bad veneer.

I then went to have a visit with my mom and their neighbour who has lived there since I was a little kid was getting ready to start clearing out some of her things from years of collecting. My hands were itchy just talking about it.

So over we went and spent 2 hours hunting through the house and garage and sharing stories of years ago. It was a blast.

My favorite thing to come home and land in the me pile was this amazing oil painting of a girl and her lamb.

She found a home in the dining room and her gold frame fits right in with the rest of the room. I also love that I know where it came from and the story behind it.









Have a lovely day,


Meg

  3. So pretty and you are right that knowing the history makes it even more special. When my brother and sil bought their newest home, the older couple selling were moving to a retirement living center. My sil and I went to the auction a week before they moved in and she bought a lovely painting of sheep on a hillside in Scotland that the elderly lady had painted. It is one of her favourite pieces.

  4. Love the painting! I have two sheep pictures in my dining room--one is old, the other one isn't. And how fun to get it from someone you know.

Leave me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
