Mother's Day Review

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! I know I did.

I got to spend most of the weekend at the farm. That's always a good thing. But this time, we had extra fun as my mother-in-law, Bonnie, and Bruce's oldest brother, Barry, came up too.

We spent Saturday relaxing and enjoying each others company.

Bruce and Barry shot guns and worked on a small project venting the water heater properly. It's good to have that done. The previous safety vent was too small so they made it bigger. Whew.

Bonnie and I enjoyed the beautiful day, sitting on the back porch, walking around looking at everything and picking the first dew berries. We got a good start for a pie! :o)

Sunday, Bruce and Barry took us over to Sabor a Pasion for brunch. Yum! Simon always makes the best food! Bonnie enjoyed getting to meet him and try out his food. She said she'd never had a breakfast that looked so pretty or tasted so good.

Of course, I made the guys have their picture taken with their mother:

After some cutting up, I got a good picture of the three of them.

Then I had Bruce take my picture with her:

She's a special lady and I'm so blessed to have her as my mother-in-law. I'm so thankful for her.

We headed home after brunch as Jay and Megan were making me a special Mother's Day supper. I should of taken pictures of it and them but I was too busy being pampered to remember to do so. It was so good and I loved spending the time with my kids. They really know how to spoil me!

As the night came to a close, I sent love to my mom in heaven. Still miss her even after 13 years.
Thank you, Mom, for the love you showered on us. I look forward to seeing you again someday. You are very much missed.

On another note, we've been getting a crazy amount of rain. I'm not complaining after the drought we've been in the last several years. We fortunately missed the tornados and flooding other parts of the state got. Spring weather can be scary sometimes.

I hope all is well with you.


  1. What a lovely Mother's Day you had Cecilia! That breakfast looks divine! We are needing rain really bad. It's so dry here right now. We are currently hearing thunder but I think it's going to go around us. My plants need water but I guess I'm going to have to water them myself. I hope you're having a great week so far. Mine has been really productive so far!

    Hugs, Vicky

    1. Oh yes, Vicky, the breakfast was wonderful! So yummy. Funny, but we've gotten lots of rain here in town but not very much over the lakes so they are still low. Keeps going over them then dumping it below their zones. Ooo, whatcha been up to? Can't wait to see what you're doing. Hope you share soon!

  2. Lovely family! It looks like a great breakfast as well!

    1. Aw, thanks. I love these people dearly. Yes, it wa! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. This was such a lovely post Cecilia, it truly warmed my heart. I can just tell by looking at Bonnie's face she's a special lady. Can you do that too or am I weird? (Humm...maybe you shouldn't answer that lol). You look so pretty and happy too! So glad you had a great day with your loved ones. That's what it's all about.

    (For some reason, this post was deep within my archives! I never would have found it if I hadn't been looking for something else. I've just about given up trying to figure out technology!)


    1. Yeah, technology makes my head spin. Ack!
      Sometimes, I can look at someone and know they're special. Not always though. I don't think you're weird at all.
      I am very blessed. Glad you found my post...I can't even find my archives. Lol.

  4. What a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. I loved seeing photos of you and your family. Stay dry!

    1. Thanks, Laurel! I'm trying to, but it's rained almost every day. I am so happy about it too - I want to go dance in it but the thunder and lightening make it a no no. LOL.

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…
