My brother

My brother lost his battle with cancer early this morning. He no longer suffers. My heart breaks and tears fall but I know someday we will be reunited. God bless each and everyone who prayed for him and us. You'll never know how much they helped us get through this.

Resting in His comfort,


  1. Oh Cecilia - I have tears in my eyes - sending you virtual hugs my friend.............and may the sweetest of memories wrap themselves around you and keep you warm during this difficult time.............
    Much love,

  2. I'm so sorry Cecilia. Your brother may rest in peace, now, no more pain.

  3. My heart goes out to you and your family Cecilia. I'm so deeply sorry to hear of your loss.

  8. Dear Cecilia, I came over from Suzan's blog. Although I am thankful that she has introduced us to another great blog, I am deeply saddened for the reason. My deepest sympathies to you and your family at this very difficult time. I pray that the most wonderful memories of your brother will comfort you now and on future days. I know the grief will last longer than you feel you can bear, but I hope you know that you are carried in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers. I am subscribing to your blog, and will wait patiently for you to feel up to sharing with us again. Blessings to you -- Patty Soriano, Castroville, Texas

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…

Cozy Christmas Farmhouse at The B Farm

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing The B Farm all cozied up for Christmas as part of the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. It's five days of Christmas goodness - I hope you will pop over and visit the other ladies. I'll share the links at the bottom of my post.

This year, I'm crazy about plaid! What? You too? To me, it just says "cozy" and "homey".

To begin, I dressed the table with red plaid placemats and red napkins from Audrey of Timeless Treasures. The plaid stockings are actually silverware holders my friend Susan gave me a couple of years ago. So cute!
The red pillows on the bench were wrapped with red and white plaid ribbon. They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago.

Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey. It's not plaid but it says farmhouse cozy to me!

Isn't it pretty?

The cute red and white checked apron (another wonderful item from Audrey) han…
