Show & Tell Friday #1

In my blog-hopping escapades, I came upon a blog which had Show & Tell Friday featured on it. This fun little activity is where Bloggers simply show & tell about some item in their home on their blog. It's the brain child of Kelli of There is no place like home (where you can find a list of all the Bloggers who have Show & Tell Friday on their blogs). I'm going to try this out and we'll see how it goes.

The first thing I will show you is a little iron plaque that hangs above my stove. This treasure I found many years ago while garage saling. At first glance, I think my guests think it's going to say something like The Kitchen Prayer (read below) or have some such equally super-spiritual message. Everyone seems to get a chuckle out of it.

The Kitchen Prayer
God bless my little kitchen
I love its every nook
And bless me as I do my work
Wash pots and pans and cook.
And may the meals that I prepare
Be seasoned from above
With Thy great blessing and Thy grace
But most of all Thy love.
As we partake our earthly food
The table before us spread
We'll not forget to thank Thee, Lord
Who gives us daily bread.
So bless my little kitchen, Lord
And those who enter in
May they find naught but joy and peace
And happiness therein.

Yes. I think it's only fair that people receive these kinds of disclaimers. ;)

This plaque takes me back to my childhood. My piano teacher had a similar looking trivet on her kitchen table (where I had to wait when I arrived early).

I think it said...."Of all the rooms I show my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best."

The kitchen poem is great, but I love the husband comment on the iron trivet. How true, at least in my house. hahaha
