Changing Seasons

Although the leaves won't be changing color just yet here in Texas,

the Surprise Lillies are up

Reminding us it is September and Fall is on it's way.

 It is a time for change. Time to let some things go, time to start new adventures.

I'm sure you've all noticed I haven't been blogging much lately.

You see, I've been focusing more and more on my art work.

With the completion of my studio, it is time to become serious about my art business.

So I am pouring my energy into creating my art business, exploring all the possibilities  that offers.

I am working on a new website - it will have the same address as my old art website: www.ceciliabramhall.com - but will be better as I will be able to blog and sell my artwork from there as well.  I'm still figuring things out but it is all coming together.

All of which means I'm writing the post I didn't think I'd write until we moved and finished our last big project at the farm.

Color Me Happy - Adding Color Back To The House

I've enjoyed our new colorful living room so much.
 The touches of red, green and blue really bring the room to life.

It made me realize that trying to do neutral wasn't me even though I love the look in other people's homes. Therefore, I have embarked on a mission to add color back into my house.

I already had the red pillows and red plaid placemats for the dining area. I also made the red plaid curtain this past year.  My wall is full of colorful pictures and art.


 I found the flowers on clearance at JoAnn's. Yay for clearance! It will be fun to have different colorful looks for the seasons.

For the kitchen, I decided to add colorful plates and what's more perfect than Fiestaware?  I have very fond memories of my mom's turquoise set especially the tea pitcher and salt & pepper shakers.

I knew there was a vendor at the Canton First Monday Trade Days that sold Fiestaware. I had bought a red pitcher a couple of years back. So in July, dinner plates came home…

What's Up? Stuff I've Been Working On While Trying to Stay Cool

Good Monday afternoon! I don't have loads to share - it's been so hot so mostly watering stuff and trying to stay cool.

But, I wanted to share final pictures of the living room and a few of the art studio.

First up the living room - I added baskets to the entertainment unit and hung some of my artwork on the wall. I'm still loving my living room refresh and the burst of happy color!

Entertainment center with baskets added; artwork waiting to be hung on the walls:

Artwork hung on either side of entertainment unit:

Lamp on entry table:  Here's what it looks like turned on. I like that the Eiffel Tower shows through.

Then we head out the backdoor to the art studio. Bruce wanted someway to know if I was in there without having to walk the whole way so I made a sign to hang outside the door. It is made from a small wooden palette I bought at Hobby Lobby.

I added paint splotches and the words then just added the chain through the thumb hole:
 I hang it up when I'm in the…
