365 | the farmhouse table

Dust flies. Dirt fades. I work my way slowly around its rough hewn edges, taking care not to erase the stories I imagine etched in the honeyed worn planks. And while its history is forever hidden, its future is sure. Nestled squarely in the center of our life in these four walls, it will soon hold feasts and fire, books and bread, messes and memories as three times a day we’ll gather round to drink deep of love, laughter, plans, and prayers. Soon.

A special thank you to all of you that participated in {i n h a b i t} this past weekend. It was such a blessing to read your beautiful words. We’ll do it again this Friday. I look forward to seeing you there.

  1. I soooo covet a farm table! They are hard to come by in the antique shops here as people here are not much into “country”. 😦 But for now, until one crosses my path, we do have an amazing antique drafting table that we use instead and I do love it so.
    Beautiful photo!

  2. I dream of a table like that. It’s the kind my parents and their families grew up around.

  3. I love that table! What a lucky find. I have dreams of someday finding one of my own. However, if it doesn’t happen I think I might enlist my husband’s help to build one like this. Sometimes you just have to create your own family heirlooms. 🙂

  4. Beautiful table. What a blessing to your home!

  5. What a table! Lots of conversation, nourishment, and love I’m sure will be shared around it.

    I’m sorry I missed out on the inhabit series this weekend. It sounded very intriguing. Will enjoy reading through the comments though!

  6. I also look forward to seeing more of your embroidery project.
