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

I am waiting for my coffee table and end table it may take a couple more weeks. We are thinking of purchasing this table to go by the side chair and ottoman which is still on the list. I am trying to be patient because I feel blessed to be able to purchase new furniture but still I feel like a little kid waiting for Christmas. This table will be for my hubby and all his stuff. ( remotes, magazines, I-phone, charger , ect..)
here is the set...We are not getting the drop-leaf table at this time.

I have the sofa and loveseat now...soon the tables will be here and then the chair. I have found a different entertainment center for the T.V. It has doors that close over the T.V. I like it better then the one they are showing and a little cheaper. We also chose the two-tone tables.

My COTTAGE is becoming RUSTIC not a garden cottage anymore. I have a husband who decide to be involved in the choices this time and here we have compromised. We both like it and will enjoy the room together and if your ever in the area we will share it with you also:)

Beautiful, cozy choices Alice. It's exciting to get something new. Can't wait til you get it all. You'll enjoy this so much. Hope you have a great weekend.

I have really liked the choices you've made in furniture. Last time we bought, we went completely in a different direction and bought functional, comfortable furniture. I don't like it, but it's comfortable and functional. The pretty stuff doesn't hold up as well. Everything I liked to look at had pillow backs, which are a pain to keep up. Your rooms will look great!

I really like your choices! At this stage in life it is wonderful to be able to choose new things which reflect how we live now not what we liked from a magazine 20 years ago! Exciting to see the room coming together for you.
