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

We are very excited here in Wobegon. My sister and her husband will be coming for a visit. They are taking the train which in itself is a fun trip...over the Rockies and through the Plains of the Midwest I had not gotten around to the guest room and was going to just do those airbeds. When I set it up It looked terrible. I just could not let our first time guest sleep in a room that looked so awful. So I worked all day Saturday and tried to put the guest room together. It still needs a few things but it has a great start.
The bedding is from Target
The bed is from the HOM store
The panels are from Walmart
lamps and tables I had
I brought the rocking chair with me from Washington
Throw is from IKEA
I looked for a cloth for the table and so far have not been able to find one so I just used a table cloth
I still need curtains, there are only mini blinds. There is only one picture on the opposite wall where I forgot to take a picture. I have two bookcases and a small TV sitting on a console on the same wall but I think I will be putting something else there. I feel a little better about our company coming and being able to stay in a more presentable room. There will be lots of Cottage meals and they will get to experience our Seasonal Cottage Cuisine.
When we moved here this room was set up for the grandkids with bunkbeds, bean bags and lots of kiddie stuff. I gave all that to my daughter when she had her son and wasn't in a big hurry to much with the room. We don't have a lot of overnight company. Maybe the word will get out and the Cottage will be full all Summer...wouldn't that be fun?

Alice, you must be happy to have time to spend with your sister. I can only imagine. They will be very happy in that room; I love what you did with the bed. Have a wonderful time.

So delightful, I would LOVE to sleep in that bed and in that room! I'm envious of that train ride -smile-.
