Lambs and Puppies


  It has been a while since I have pushed my cart through the baby aisles. I doubt I could find anything as cute as a few recent finds. Are lambs even trendy anymore in the nursery? It wouldn't stop me. I would happily trot into the paint store carrying my latest luggage just to color match it for the walls. Want to see?


My hunt for one of these nursery suitcases has been on for a while. To dress up the cream handle I will hang a vintage rattle. A place for vintage children's hankies.


A vintage nursery set I have loved from afar for over a year was found on sale! These are two of the four that came complete on a little wicker tray. Hand painted lambs frolic on them. I think pink and blue buttons will look perfect in them. 


Miss Erica of Golden Egg Vintage sent this darling embroidery and feedsack for a special order.


I had more fun putting handles and trimming it out.


Placed a brand new label on it.


I made sure lots of Noel's toys could fit in it...I will be mailing it off tomorrow.

Oh my! Renee, once again you have my vintage heart in a flutter! I love those little lambies! And had I been smart enough when my babies were babies, I WOULD have covered their nursery with these little sweeties!

Love the wonderful bin you made for Erica--she will absolutely adore it!

As always, my friend--you inspire me.

Oh such sweetness!! I just adore lambs!! Love the pretty bin you made for Erica! How cute is that embroidery, and the handles are the perfect touch!! Love your new labels! I just ordered some more, and getting a little worried that they haven't arrived yet, because I have only a few left, and many things to label! Hoping they come soon! Have a great night! xo Heather

I love those little lambs. I grew up with a lamb light next to my bed, and finding one just like it at a sale was thrilling! (I'll actually get it out one of these days!)

Stop it!! It turned out way too cute! It looks even better than I imagined. You rock! Noel will love it too. We are going to keep her little toys (pink and green bear, and snowman toy are her faves). Also her nail clipper and brush!
You're the best!

I have a particular fondness for vintage lambs- I'm in love with the first image from the little suitcase! So sweet!!

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

Pink and blue buttons for sure!

I wonder how many lambs I have in my craft room...

Sewn With Grace said...

One of the things I love about your blog (and there are many!) is that I always see vintage items that I have not ever seen before. Those lamb containers are darling. Love the fabric basket you made. Have a wonderful day friend!

Shirley Hatfield said...

Lol! Was just thinking of the "toy organizer" I got for my last little boy...a lego fiend. I thought he would be able to sort his things to keep them organized. What world was I living in? His legos were all over the room and the organizers were a handy place for rocks, candy wrappers and old sandwiches. I do love nurseries, though. We can have them all cute and vintage-y...but then they get to be toddlers and it's all over! =D Can you tell I babysat a toddler yesterday?

Amy, a redeemed sheep said...

Where did you get that darling lamb graphic? I need one!!

donna said...

Renee the lambs are so sweet. I am in love. The bin you made for Erica is adorable.

I have that exact lamb suitcase you're wanting....only mine is definitely more beat up. Right now, it's currently holding old cards.
I'd be willing to trade for the doctor and nurse figurines!

This is darling. I just love the vintage look of the fabric. Reminds me of the styles when I was young and all the cards in my baby box. I would love it if you would share this with Sunny Simple Sundays. Have a wonderful weekend. http://sunnysimplelife.blogspot.com/

I love your carrying baskets! I have got to get making some of these! I adore baby stuff, patiently waiting for someone to have a baby, got so many idea's!
I am getting inspired, looking at some of your old blogs. I have some vintage hankies and beautiful linen napkins to work with, hmmmm. What about a beautiful bin?
