Never grows old

Today I'm going to link up with Kathy again for another one of her blog parties. I always find great ideas at these parties and always come away making sweet new friends.
One of my paternal aunts passed away a while back. She was in her nineties and a spunky little thing right up to the last. She had this painting in her home for many years and I feel very honored to now have it in mine.
She had it in a very flimsy little frame, but I found this one at an antique shop and it was a perfect fit. :))))
It also doesn't hurt anything that hubby dear just happens to be custom picture framer. All that being said, I love the picture. I love having Jesus in my dining room. know....He's always there, but I love looking at the picture. So nice to reflect when we are having our meals. The picture never gets old. I could look at it forever and never tire of it.
A sweet friend gave me the little sheep linen for Christmas....I LOVE IT!!
So cute with all the little sheep lined up in a row. All hand stitched....and I just love that little black sheep at the end.....sometimes I think that's me:)
Jesus watching over me....I like that.
Stop in and see A Delightsome Life won't be sorry!!

It looks wonderful!!
The frame is perfect too Shine.
I love that linen piece too with those precious little sheep on it!
It is darling!
And yes, you are so precious, just like that one that stands out on your linen.
I'd love to sit there with you by the fire and chat...knowing that Jesus is right there with us too!
Blessings sweet friend xoxo

All my love,
Deborah xoxo

How wonderful to have that painting in your home! Your husband did a super job of framing it. Your sheep linen is just precious; I love that they included the little black sheep. :)

Thanks for sharing and have a great day!

I have this painting but in metal form - it was my parents - it is nice to read those who have the same thing - but it was also a family heirloom too. It looks wonderful reframed and the sheep runner - too perfect! thank you for sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

Hi Shine,

I'm back! Thanks for your visit and the sweet comments; I am now following on your blog as well!

I can't believe you know about Robbinsville, too. I saw on your profile that you're in the Great Smoky Mtns. of E. Tennessee. Not far at all from Robbinsville. It is beautiful up there, isn't it?

We're in the Piedmont area of N.C. Hope you have a great weekend!

Ah! So beautiful Shine, my parents had the same picture in my childhood home.
I love the frame you chose makes the last supper stand out even more.
The detail with the lambs are so pretty.
Hugs Rosemary...xx

I have always loved the painting of The Last Supper. It looks lovely on your mantel with the new frame. I'm so sorry for the loss of your aunt. This beautiful picture will always be a special reminder of her.
