Many years ago we bought a pine table and benches. I began adding where each of us where born and down the center added two food scriptures. I was not a Christian so I used a Bible on hand not knowing the many versions that exist in the world. I have not changed anything aside from adding several years ago all the places we have lived along the edges. Thankfully we have only moved 34 times so the places we lived fit around the edges.*I was playing around on picnik dot com and kind of liked how this showed all the nicks and cuts. This table has been the school table for 18 years as well as the breakfast~lunch~and dinner table. Many family memories are affixed to this table. In fact many forts have been built under this table!
Thought I would share this again. This is a simple remedy to hang work gloves. It is a yard stick cut in half with glued on clothespins. We use gloves every day on the farm to feed, work on projects, as well as gardening. Extra pairs await any day workers that show up for in trade items (farm fresh meats or eggs). My gloves~on the bottom right are the garden gloves and the turquoise gloves. Gloves are kind of big for me so I ended up using children's garden gloves. I have the turquoise gloves because I do live in New Mexico, and they match my Crocs!

This is a blanket I sewed about five years ago. All of the denim is from pants that the children, Bill or I wore. I have saved from the point we married cutting pieces out and putting them in a box collecting until I had enough squares. For me, home is filled with my creations. It is a place I can set the tone for the family. By the way I do like the simple majestic beauty of Creations. Rough around the edges, imperfect to landscapers but captivating~
Like the view from my front porch. Beautiful, unique, and breathtaking~don't you think?
Now back to an unedited photo of the kitchen table~
In all its glory. Top places are purple- Germany, blue-Utah, brown-Texas, Pink-California, Red-Georgia, and green Germany.
In the King James the verses are:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
