So here’s our dining room. It is truly the gathering place. It is where we behold God, and eat and drink (Exodus 24:11)–and it lends a sweet foretaste of eating and drinking at His table (Luke 22:30). We had this table built five feet square to get the most mileage out of a small space.
We have a votive candle holder on our dining room table which I enjoy filling with seasonal treasures. The candle holder was made from reclaimed Vermont barn wood, so it’s right at home here. As I just returned from a little excursion to the beach (yay!), I added some shells to the tray. Ahhh–summertime. I am hoping to make a ruffled table runner this summer.
Our prints are from a trip to Quebec City, a favorite place! The prints are made from copper etchings and they capture the charm of the old walled city. The were purchased at an open air art market on the Rue de Tresor–a must-see destination for anyone traveling to this richly historical city.
The last picture shows a diminutive set of pewter salt and pepper shakers on a little tray. It was found on a “birthday antiquing outing” with my friend, and I love it! It has been fun to incorporate a few antiques into my house here and there.
