I am linking up for the first time for Home Tour Tuesday! Please join in on the fun!
Well...now that I have taken my pictures, I am just going to go with them :) When I took them, in my mind I was thinking of two of my favorite items in the house, but when I went back and looked, it's actually two things you are thankful for (besides spouse and kids).
You might not think those would be that different...but for me they are.
Here are two of my favorite items in my house:
This is a painting that used to hang in my "Mimi and Pop's" (my dad's parents) house. It hung right at the end of their kitchen table. I have always liked it because it just reminds me of their house. They had a small "farm" behind their house with chickens, horses, goats, and peacocks. When my grandfather passed away in August of 2008, I asked if I could have that picture to hang in my house. I was told that one of my uncle's girlfriend's had painted it awhile back and that made me laugh, but it will always be sentimental to me. I love knowing that I have a piece of art that will always remind me of my loving grandparents!
This cross also hangs in our kitchen. It was a wedding present from one of my mom's friends. I love that it is a cross and I love the Bible verse. It is a great daily reminder of our purpose!
After writing, I realize that I am very thankful for these two things. Had I chosen something else, I may have taken a picture of my pantry because I'm thankful for food, and a picture of my bed because I LOVE going to sleep at night in my comfy bed!!
