  1. I have mismatched stoneware dishes. My husband never complains when I get older and older ones, he just laughs knowing Iโ€™ll be the one hand washing them. ๐ŸคฃGreat post, felt like I was there. โค๏ธ

  2. Love, love, love your table story (and your pretty table) and your heart of contentment you have found in what you have. Our table was a pass down from Bill’s grandmother who lived with us many years ago. Standard mass produced oval oak table and chairs, not my first choice, and not quite large enough, but we have made do just fine with it for a long time also. I do have on my list to build a larger one someday, as now with two sons married and 8 grands there are 21 of us already! All in good time.

    1. Yes, I think of that often, what will it be like when our children marry and have children! We will never be lonely…crowded maybe, but not lonely!

  3. I love the idea of using what you have! And I use my wedding registry dishes for everything too! Once you have a solid set of dishes you can dress them up or down. I also loved your story about your table. A family dining table is a gathering place, and I love that yours has a story. My father built my dining table, and it is my absolute favorite item in my house! Thanks for sharing your beautiful table!

  4. What a beautiful table (and a wonderful story). And now? The table will have stories of it’s own. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy day friend!

    Thank you for always inspiring me with your posts!


  5. Jennifer, I absolutely love your heart! Humble and content. I find myself at peace with each post I read of yours! This sweet post was no exception!! I loved the yellow (my favorite color) on the table, your bright pictures and your story! Thank you for sharing, and reminding us all to be happy with what we have!

  6. I just love how you have used what you have to make such a beautiful Easter table! I also like to do this! I really love your blog!!

  7. I love everything about this post Jenn. I love the story of the table and I am so glad you kept it & improved it. I love using our dishes and the things from my registry too. Unfortunately I have one of those husbands with opinions but I do buy many dishes while thrifting. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love the contentment sentiment. ๐Ÿ’›
