As I drove down the road and spotted this little wool and Antique shop, I couldn't resist.

I was going to end this post and say

"baby lambs, and flowers it must be Spring"...

but it's snowing a bit outside my window, sigh.

I was hoping that March would be going out like a lamb!

Sheep farms, and country scenes, it seemed fitting that The Celtic Women serenade this post.

I am linking to Kim's Wow Us Wednesday.

Hi Karen,
I simply adore wooly sheep and lambs! When we drive to the beach in the summertime, we always pass by a farm that has lots of wooly sheep grazing in the meadow. I just love watching them; it's a charming sight! I am somehow always drawn to the black ones!
I have enjoyed your post and I hope you see some signs of spring soon. It is finally starting to look like it here! Have a wonderful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Karen it was lovely to go visit this farm with you. What a charming place. I adore little lambs!
Yes I think the calendar claims Spring, but it is snowing here in my part of Idaho too.

Aren't lambs the sweetest things? I had a pet lamb as a child and I loved her so, she followed me all over the yard:>) It looks like so much fun to discover such a pretty place. Don't worry Karen, Spring may be hiding right now but soon the snow will be gone:>)

Lisa said...

Oh - how precious! I am putting this on my list of places to visit when I return to New England.

Oh Karen Sweetie...
A beautiful share indeed. I love seeing the wool stretched out and lying as it is. I spy with my little eyes several things I would walking away with. Oh my gosh, what a lovely shop. See, we just do not have those things out here.

Love the little lambs. How precious they are. A beautiful farm and I believe I could get lost there for sure.

We had rain yesterday, but back to sun today. The rest of the week it is supposed to keep climbing. Lots of yard work to do. I am Spring Cleaning the flower beds. I so enjoy working outside, but working full time, I have to work in the evenings and on weekends.

Thanks for stopping by sweet friend. I am so thrilled you enjoyed my post. I love writing. I gather photos along every single day, and pocket them for a post to be. I love blogging and visiting with beautiful friends like you. Thank you for sharing sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

I'm setting up a new store at a shop called Digitals as well. I'll share about that soon on my blog. ♥
