Every Farm Table has a Story to Tell~

 I took these pictures of my kitchen table back a few months ago.
I was just GOOFING OFF with the camera really. 

It's a Farmtable. Tapered -legs. Lopped-off corners. Very light pine wood.  
Honey bought the wood at the Flea-market, the man told him it was from Arkansas; 
and I don't know that you can see it; but it is full of WORM TRACKS!  
...and dents and dings from school work and projects. 

But I love this table so... I just started clicking. 
 My husband MADE this table (He and my children) in September 1999. The week of the 13th thru the 19th
He took off work that week to care for our children-- 
We home schooled and so they were always home with me. 
Except this week.
 I was at the hospital. 
That is the week my Momma passed away. 
She never sat at this table. 
 But you see, she is still a part of the memories 
that have been made around this table. 

Linking here. 

God bless you 
and Thanks for reading!

Your table is beautiful. As Lezlee said, it holds both good and bittersweet memories. It means even more that your husband and children made it. Have a blessed day.

The unusual shape truly makes it one of a kind. And where it came from? Priceless.

Pat, what a wonderful table made with love by your husband and kids while you were saying goodbye to your mom. So many emotions all at once, but captured for a long time in your lovely table. Ann

Hugs, Cindy

How lovely to think of all the special memories that the table must hold. The good and the bad.

I'm so impressed that your husband made this cracker on his own! It's lovely!

A story to tell indeed, A very sad week, to be remembered fondly with this table for years. The thing is, apparently you got to spend time with your mom that week, which I know you hold dear to your heart... many don't get to say goodbye. It's so sweet that you hubs kept the kiddos busy with this wonderful project.
I love your farm table and everything about it.
Kitchens really are the heart of the home. :)

There is something so homey about pine! It also makes me think of a beach cottage we used to go to when the kids were little. It had pine on the floors and walls and was so cosy!
