In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

FURNITURE HUNTING for the cottage

Well...this picture certainly does nothing for me but it was fun. I think my sister Jean sent me a birthday card this year with two ladies sitting in a chair like this, it was very humorous. We are hunting for new furniture for the cottage. We sold a lot of stuff at the moving sale because it was too big for the new place and we don't have as much room. I do love the space we have and it seems big enough for the two of us, it feels spacious, wether it is doesn't matter because it feels just right to me and I love it. We also didn't want to move the big heavy things and now we can have what ever we find delivered. I found a buffet that will go well with the new table and will purchase it next week. I think I have decided on a sofa, chair and ottoman in micro-fiber,still thinking about it and will hopefully purchase that next month. The Lazy-boy rocker recliner will have to wait until Fathers Day. Guess who that is for? We are settling in nicely and really liking the new space. We were looking at the moon last evening from our telescope, it was amazing and so was the sunset. I will try and see if my camera will take those pictures at dusk, not sure if it is fancy enough for that. I am sort of a simple girl with basic tastes, nothing to fancy or complicated for me. I am really looking forward to all the Holiday baking in my new kitchen..OH HOW I LOVE TO BAKE. My September baking is usually Applecake, Carrotcake, Zucchini Bread, lots of apple pies, and I will try a few new apple recipes. Lat year it was pumkin -apple muffins and everyone liked them, they have a little crunch topping and it makes the muffin. They co-workers at the post office love my treats and my husband takes all the extras there so we won't over do here. Looking forward to the Fall Season...I love the Fall and all the beautiful colors it brings.

This is so exciting! Every once in awhile I wonder what it would be like to start over with furnishing a home...and i get to watch you do it!

I had wondered about all the extra baking, because around here if I bake too much it does get eaten by us ( mostly your brother ), and that is not a good thing. I try to make sure we are going to a potluck the next day when I bake a lot.

Kathy...that was my problem, If it is here I will eat it so I found a place to send it and then I get reviews to see if it is something I should make again. I experiment and the guys at work tell me if it is a keeper.

Yeah, I'm good at baking, not so good at cooking. I have to bake otherwise I'd never get to eat any baked goods as most contain some type of milk product. I love to eat baked goods and if I bake them I try to make sure there's enough to last me a week of stuffing my face! So ... did you buy the big chair??? I think it would look great out on the front porch! The neighbors would surely notice. =) Can't wait for the holidays and look forward to viewing your Christmas posts as 'Auntie Alice's' Christmas tree was always one of my favorites to look at!!!
