I have a special place in my heart for lambs as you can tell from my “Lambie My Love” pinboard found here:
My mom bought me a little lamb (stuffed animal) when I was a young child:

We were shopping in a department story and I saw this little lamb as part of a display. I carried it around the store and wanted to take it home but mom said no. I set it down and cried. It wasn’t a pouty, bratty cry but a truly sad, quiet goodbye kind of cry. I walked to the van and sat in the backseat. Mom turned on the car. Then she turned it off. She turned around and asked if I really wanted that lamb and I said “yes, I do.” I already loved that lamb. Mom sent my brother Eddie back into the store to buy it for me. I got quite a lot of hand-me-downs as I was the 7th of 8 children Mom and Dad had. Getting this new lamb that was just my own was really special- and it wasn’t even my birthday or Christmas. I still love Lambie. She sits on a shelf in my closet next to Bellybutton. That’s where my love for lambs comes from. I slept with Lambie all the time and told her stories. So lambs have a special place in my heart. Especially vintage ones.
Here are some random things I found around the web. Hope you enjoy.
