Show and Tell Friday - God's blessings!


Kelli over at "There's No Place Like Home" hosts a show and tell every Friday. Hop on over and see her special treasures along with links from others who participate in this fun little activity!


This Friday I thought I would show you our dinning room hutch that I decorated last year with my birthday money. I must say that the dining room is one of my most favorite rooms in the house. I really loved how the greenery turned out on the top.



God graciously allowed us to get our dining room set last year. We had been tempted to find one and put it on credit; because we were lacking the funds in cash to pay for it; and our table was literally falling apart. (I was afraid to let the kids lean on it - for fear it would fall over). My husband (who is more level headed than I), reminded me that we did not believe in putting things on credit. He encouraged me that we would hold out until we were able to have the cash to pay for a new set. I was extremely disappointed, as I really LOVED the table I had found at a furniture store. However, I agreed with him and waited. We were putting cash away and waiting - when I ran across an ad for a table that looked IDENTICAL to the one that I had fell in love with - - only this one had a hutch that came with it for the SAME price as just the table I had wanted. The sale came on the week that we had finally had enough cash saved to make the purchase of the new table! I knew that God had given me the hutch - His blessing for waiting for HIS time and His plan. I absolutely love my dining room.



I purchase the greenery and the wire accessories and had fun making my arrangement on top of the hutch. I loved how my the color in my collection plates matched so well. I was able to find the plate holders to hang on the side of the hutch. I think all in all I spent around $30.00 for all the flowers, the plate holders, and the wire accessories. I love it when God provides!! With my husband being a pastor, we entertain a lot! I love to sit around the table surrounded by the beautiful things that God has given to me, and fellowship with those God brings our way!

Thanks for stopping by! See you next week.

How wonderful and how like our God to throw in the hutch for being obedient. It is beautiful. Does your house get really dusty though? Mine does. I used to have a beautiful fake arrangement of greeneries on the top of my fridge. I could not keep them clean.
