We have new puppies!

Wow, the middle of January is already past...where has time gone? The days are full. My brother is slowly fading and it's hard to watch but so I'm so treasuring the days we have. He turns 60 on the 23rd. We are planning a small celebration and I'm sure he will have plenty of visitors.

On a happier note, 2 little fuzzies came to be a part of our family:

My new border collie puppies

They are brothers. Buddy is the black and white and Herbie is the chocolate and white. We've had them a week already and what a joy they are! They make me smile and laugh and when things are at their gloomiest, they snuggle in my lap and give my face puppy kisses. Yes, they get me up early. Yes, they keep me on my toes with house breaking but it's all worth it as they bound around the house and yard with their little happy puppy-selves:

playing under the chair-
Don't think they will fit under here much longer!

Herbie loves to climb in your lap and snuggle...should be fun when he weighs 40 lbs. haha!


Buddy loves to lick your face and lay beside you as he plays with his toys.


They both love their puppy cookies I made them and are already sitting on command. Smart puppies!

The cats haven't decided to trust them...they still run and hide when the pups come inside. I think as the puppies calm down, the cats will get over their hissy fits. :-) We'll see; it is rather intense having 2 wiggly pups come at them at once.

We haven't had the chance to take them to the farm but I bet they will love it! Lots of room to run and play. I will have to take lots of pictures of their first visit.

I hope your New Year is off to a good start. I did manage to organize the pantry but everything else is on hold as the puppies adjust to their new home. My art area is in desperate need of straightening but it will have to wait...I have puppies ready to play!

Have a blessed day!


  1. Cecilia, your puppies are adorable! What a joy they must be! So sorry for the difficult time your family is going through right now. I can only imagine how hard it must be for you and your siblings. I will be praying for peace and comfort for your family.

  2. I'm sorry about your bother. I hope his birthday brings him a little joy. On another note, I am so JEALOUS over your puppies! They are absolutely adorable.

    1. Thanks, Karen. I think he is looking forward to all the visits he will be getting tomorrow. And the pups are adorable and bratty. lol. They are so much fun!

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…
