Today we received some news that one of our little dreams was crushed. It wasn’t anything to do with our fertility, but a lot to do with something that has been on our hearts lately. We felt God pushing us in a direction & we prayed on it, but today that dream was put on hold. Not necessarily gone forever, but just paused by God. I am thankful that God knows whats best for us because who knows what would happen if I w
as in control. Of course I’m human & my little heart hurts, but I will forever trust that God knows whats best & that’s what pushes me forward & gives me hope.
I came home from getting the news & right away wanted to change something in our home. We had a lovely neutral & copper fall centerpiece on our table & I was craving something more simple. I hadn’t used a dough bowl in our dining room in a while so I dragged it out of hiding & filled it with some neutral pumpkins & greenery that I had. I found this dough bowl on one of my junking adventures, but you can find some at places like Painted Fox [here]. Dough bowls are so versatile & you can do so much with them!
That pie safe? It’s a work in progress. I’ll be blogging it soon, but it’s been a process & I think I know the next step. Our dining room is so small, but It’s coming right along. I also forgot I never blogged the table change, I need to do that too. Let me just make a list…
What do you think of my simple dough bowl fall centerpiece? I think I’ll keep it for a while. I’m thinking I need to do a colorful fall centerpiece too… what do you think? Let me know in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today it means so much! xx

Hello, Just wanted to say Hi….love your blog! You are such an inspiration! I do love the centerpiece and would love to find a dough bowl. I found a place down the road that has white and gray pumpkins…love that look. So sorry for your heartache. Bless you, Lori (Vintage thru Thyme) on instagram
Your faith is really admirable. I liked the person that put the quote on your insta: “If God hasn’t opened a door, praise Him in the hallway.”
Also, I don’t know where you get your energy! There is now a china hutch and a new table?! No wonder your house doesn’t gather dust, you don’t leave anything long enough for it to gather!!! haha!
