Sheep in the Study!

Christmas decorating is just about finished.  As most of you do, there is always that tweaking here and there that continues to take place.  This year was a more simple way of decorating.

One of my favorite little addition is this darling vintage figurine.  I bought it several years ago for just a few dollars as the little girl was broken and no longer attached to the little guys hand.

 I found the figurine tucked away a few weeks ago and asked always faithful hubby if he could figure out a way to fix it.  He said sure and went and got a small headed nail and some glue and put her back to where she spins around!  Isn't it adorable!

 My other favorite this year is the lamb vignette in the study- 
 I have been collecting little sheep and lamps for some time now and decided they would be perfect for a Christmas display.

 This cute little set below I found just last week at ARC for 1.50. I know I said I was going to use just things that I had already but they had all the Christmas for 50 % off and just couldn't help looking!

 This little chalkware lamb was another find that same day for 1.00!

 The sheet music is from one of my old hymnals that I collect.  It was falling apart so didn't feel too bad about tearing out music.    Savior Like A Shepherd Lead Us and While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks  are the the pieces chosen for this vignette.
Do you see something different in that mirror reflection?  
Look at the pretty chair!-  Have a wonderful story of how I was blessed with that chair and will share it next time when I show you that side of the study!

What fun! I love the little lambs and the music and all of the sweetness of your guest suite/sitting room! And - yes - I spied that new chair in the very first reflection in the mirror! Knew it wasn't there when I sat in that corner a few months ago. Love what you've done - can't wait to see more! Sending lambie-pie hugs,

I collect sheep also. Every Christmas I have a sheep mantel. I love yours. I never thought of combining sheet music with my little lambs, but I will now. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration.
