Plates and Memories - Precious Treasures

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!

I thought for my show and tell this Friday I would share with you my collection of decorative plates that I have in my dining room. All of these plates have pictures of children or mothers with their children. I love pictures that show relationship. God desires that we hold relationships in high value - especially the relationships in our homes.

(My plates are on either side of my hutch in the dining room)

(Here are a few of my favorites: I love the beauty of this picture here - a mother holding her new baby - completely peaceful - admiring the creation of God in her arms. I absolutely LOVED giving birth and this reminds me of that wonderful experience God allowed me to have 4 times!

(I got this plate after the birth of our son - I love how the two girls are looking at their brother. How each of my children have adored the new baby as it came to be in our family.)

(This is another one of my favorites! I love the older sister helping the younger with her shoes. I love how dainty and feminine they look in their dresses and bows!)

(I just like this one!)

I hope you enjoyed my plates. These plates help to remind me of the treasures I have in this life - the gift of my family. Hug and kiss those dear to you in your life! Such special treasures they are to us from God above! Thanks so much for stopping in. See you next week.

So right about relationship - so very important to our Lord. These are very beautiful. thank you.

Your collector plates are awesome! I also love pictures that show relationships, but it is difficult to find anything depicting boys. Most pictures have girls and though I had only one daughter, I have two wonderful grandsons. So much to be thankful for. Children are a blessing from God.

Thank you for sharing these beautiful plates.

Those *are* so beautiful! I have a figurene of a mom holding her little girl. My MIL gave it to me for Christmas. Maybe I'll do a show and Tell on that one.

Tonight I was holding my baby boy, and remembering him as a newborn. He has a little fever, so he was very cuddly tonight like he was when he was brandnew.

Thanks for sharing those plates. They are very special.
