Kelly's Tour...The Dining Room

Welcome once again to "Show us where you live Friday"
hosted by precious Kelly at Kelly's Korner.
"Give us this day our daily bread"
While we really do not have an area we call
"The Dining Room", this would be the closest thing to
having one in our home.
Instead we have one main area which includes
dining areas, the kitchen and a living area.
The iron stars in this hanging above the dining table
came out of a Danny White Restaurant in Dallas
that is no longer in business.
I showed a welder from Priefert Manufacturing
a picture of something similar to this and they
were kind enough to weld this together for me
and incorporate the stars on each corner.
We then added plate glass to the base so
decorative items could be added.
The hutch was another 'auction item'
we were fortunate enough to win!
The silver I've bought to replace what I
had before has come from local Estate Sales
so I know the families these pieces belonged to.
Have I ever mentioned how ridiculously sentimental
I am...oh, it's bad, but good at the same time.
This photo shows a portion of the fireplace
centered in the 'multi-purpose' room.
It has four sides so it is part of the dining area also.
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord."
Matthew 21:9
Christy gave us this painted sign which I love!
And the iron horse name cut-outs were found
in an old barn by a friend.
I love this old angel found at a 'junk' store.
A fun find!
And the pewter "Give us this day our daily bread"
tray was a treasure to find, replacing one of
these I had before that belonged to my Mom.
I was happy to find and win the bidding war on Ebay
for this ornament since it signifies the year we
were married. Another 're-found' treasure! Rev. 21:5

Hope you enjoy visiting
all of the Dining Rooms this weekend

where you'll have up to three chances to win:)

Have a safe, fun and blessed Memorial Day weekend,

The strength that we claim from God's Word does
not depend on circumstances. Circumstances will
be difficult, but our strength will be sufficient.
" tremendous is the power available
to us who believe in God."
Ephesians 1:19 Phillips
In good times or in bad, You provide us
with the strength we need. It comforts
us to have such a reserve available
for our use, Father.
