A Happy Table


Something holy happens at a dinner table. In a sanctuary you see backs of heads; at the table you see expressions of faces. - Max Lucado

Over on my other blog Mrs. French today! Hope you will join me there!

Love that picture! Those pendants are beautiful. My mom is considering that fixture over her table. I think my favourite partis the vases with wild flowers. So natural...

I love this photo and that table arrangement! Gorgeous and simple! I am heading over to Mrs. French. I am really loving her store! Wish I lived closer!

Oh, what a BEAUTIFUL quote! I always tell my husband that when I think of eating together at the table, I think of such an array of meaning from communion to Greek feasts to the simplest, most precious of blessings, not to mention the culinary arts. So important... nice job, Lucado! :)

I love the mix of chairs side by side and the flowers, the warm wood and the quote could not be more perfect!

I love the combination of black and white with splashes of color everywhere. That first picture of the entryway is to die for! I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. Window treatments are a great way to accessorize your home will adding pops of random color. It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.
