New Find for the Guest Room

Thursday, April 24, 2014

I have a thing for lamps, especially antique marble lamps and I always keep an eye out for them, but they are usually too pricey.  Not this time!

While on the way to Florida to visit family for Easter, Mr. Heart and I stopped in one of our favorite antique shops and there she was.

I remember seeing her last year when visiting this shop, but she was too pricey.  This time when I went to check the price the tag was so faded we couldn't read it.

So I asked the shop owner, "Can you please tell me how much for the marble lamp in the back room?  The tag is too faded to read."

So she headed to the back room with me and putting her glasses on so she could get a closer look, as she was peering in at the price tag I said,
"You know that faded tag is a sign.  It's a sign this lamp has been here to long and it's time to sell her!" (giggle, giggle)  And she agreed!

Here she is...

I don't believe I've ever shown you this upstairs guest room before.
The wall color was chosen back when this was my daughter's bedroom which was a l-o-n-g time ago.
And through the years this room has become the landing spot for pieces of furniture that used to be in other places in the house that ended up in here.  Do you have a room like this, a catch-all room?

The details with the deep gray veining and intricate carvings
are so pretty, don't you think?

Do you like her?

Happy Easter ~ How Deep the Father's Love for Us...

"How Deep The Father's Love For Us"

How deep the Father's Love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
