Lambie


made for my board cover

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:

Lambie (on right) with hubby’s childhood toy, Bellybutton

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.

Hugs, FeeFee
