Welcome to my blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!

Baa Baa Black Sheep!

Bon jour, Mon Amis!
Nothing says the arrival of spring like new baby lambs.  One of our neighbors has a pair of pet lambs, one of which gave birth to not one, but two little black lambies last week!
So, I couldn't resist paying them a visit this afternoon for a quick photo shoot!
 Taking the photos proved to be a bit more challenging than I imagined! When they weren't napping, they were busy chasing Mama around, trying to get an afternoon snack!
 Is this little guy cute or what?
 Mama was being very protective of her babies, too!  Whenever I tried to snap their photos (from the other side of their pen, of course), she would try her best to come between the babies and the fence!

 The other ewe, on the other hand, was quite inquisitive, and followed me all over.  I think she was wondering when I was going to take a picture of her!
 More cuteness!
 Awww!  Look at that little pink tongue!

 Mama was beginning to look a bit weary, either from all of my snapping away, or else from her babies constant nursing!

A mother's work is never done!
Hope you all have a great day!

Awww...they are all cute but those little babies tug at my heart, especially the one when it was sleeping. When my daughter was an infant, her room was done in a lamb theme. I just adore them!

I love these pictures, Donna! They bring back memories from long ago when as a girl, a neighboring farmer (Mr. Dieterle) brought me baby lambs when their mom's wouldn't feed them. I loved caring for them.

Hugs, Karen

That was a cute post and I like the your quote "A mother's work is never done!". It just fits perfectly to you story. I am not a mother yet, but so true.
