Signs of Spring

Signs of Spring are showing up at the "B" Farm. 

Daffodils:





Snowdrops:






Oxalis:


Early wildflowers:
Pretty wildflower - Not Bastard Weed!
Plus, the leaves on some of the trees are starting to bud out:

Elm tree

I hope we don't get a late cold snap that freezes the tender leaves but it's very possible. Texas weather is so unpredictable this time of year and can change in an instant.

Of course, the interior is getting refreshed for Spring also. All the wintery decor has been put away and replaced with an early Spring one:


Fireplace Mantel with warm candle light and roses


 I found this birdcage at GW long ago and whitewashed it:

 I love how it looks with all the candles in it.


The lantern also got a whitewashed finish:



 I moved these from the entry and placed on the fireplace ledge. I love their rustic finish and how the candlelight shows up the letters:


The entry table decor was greatly simplified. Ivy surrounds the mercury glass-like candle holder:


All is ready for Spring. My next post will show my guest room reveal. I am excited to have that room ready for guests to come stay in! 

I hope you enjoyed my signs of Spring and hope you find some where you are.

Praising God for His blessings of renewal,
Cecilia

  1. I was so happy to see the daffodils! I was just telling my husband that I wish we had planted daffodils. They are so happy and are messengers of spring. As for life at Still Woods, the azaleas are beginning to bud and will soon by ablaze with color. I guess they will have to be my daffodils this year. Love the birdcage!

    1. Thank you! I'm glad the previous owner planted the daffodils and other bulbs. I'm waiting to see if any of the irises bloom this year...I love azaleas - I want some but afraid the deer will eat them.

    1. Hey Karen, we are talking Texas after all but I fear we will get hit with one last cold blast before Easter. I hope not...I'm looking forward to everything greening up. I love my birdcage too! Thanks.

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…
