Celebrating A Milestone and a Giveaway!

 I recently hit the 100+ follower mark and I am humbled beyond anything!

After all, when I started this blog, I never in a million years thought anyone beyond a few friends and family members would want to read along. It was just a way to document our progress as we turned our neglected little farm into our someday home.

Back of house when we first bought it

The front 
But along the way, I learned a lot about blogging and made some incredible new friends.




Y'all encouraged me when things were not going well and cheered me on when they were good.
I was and am extremely blessed by each of you!

So I just want to say "Thank you!!"

 To celebrate I'd like to give one lucky reader a set of my Christmas cards (4 of each design).


The new design will be a Texas Santa to go with the cowboy snowman.

Just leave a comment below by November 9th to be included in the drawing. Then I'll announce the winner the following Monday. Good luck and thank you for following along!

Hugs,
Cecilia

  4. Congratulations! Your cards are so sweet! I still have one on display in my craft room...:) You are a dear blogging friend and I always look forward to reading about what you've been up to on the farm. I enjoy reading your comments you leave for me on my blog too. Blogging friends are very special. I think because we all have so much in common. I can't wait to see your Texas Santa!

    1. I agree Vicky! It's like a room full of people with the same interests. You are dear to me too and I look forward to reading your comments and your blog. My biggest challenge on the cards will be finding a new printer...my other one closed down. Fortunately there are several to check out. :)
      Hugs!

    1. Aw, thanks Cecilia. The photo was taken a couple of years ago so I could give my husband an updated photo of me. I do like the way this one turned out. :-)
      I'm excited to do a new card design - what with my knee last year and my brother's illness the year before, I haven't made one in a couple of years. It will be good to create again.

  7. I've enjoyed seeing the cute stuff you make out of junk! Your repurposing is so fun and creative to watch. The seasons on the mantle has been the funnest to watch. :)

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…
