This is my favorite part of the collection. It reads, "Thank You for the world so sweet, Thank You for the food we eat, Thank You for the birds that sing, Thank You, God, for Everything."
When we bought our first place, I found this set of plates (below), and it became the inspiration for the colors of my living room and kitchen. I love what they say and what they represent. They are, I hope, a reflection of what people find when they come to visit (and hopefully what our children experience too!). They read, "Grace," "Harmony," and "Plenty."
And finally, this is our china cabinet. It doesn't have any lights in it, so I took white lights and arranged them in there so everything "shines." It does wonders for the crystal! This cabinet holds a collection of pieces from our wedding, from family, and yard sales, but it also holds other sentimental things, like pictures, momentos, and other things I've found or been given along the way. On top are two pictures of me with the boys and a figurine I got from my mom of a mother holding her child.
I love this area in the house because it's one of the first things you see when you walk in to our home, and I believe it represents what we stand for as a family.
Thank you for taking the tour of our family table. Now, go to Lori's and join in!
