Jack Frost Was Here

Jack Frost visited us yesterday morning.

Not a big deal for some of you but here we've been warmer than usual.

It hasn't felt or looked like Fall very much. Finally, a cold front blew in and Sunday morning we woke up to a chilly 32 degrees and frost on the ground!

The sun glittered off the frost before melting it away.

It was quite beautiful.

Because of the warm weather, the trees haven't changed much.

But I still managed to find a few colorful leaves-

As we walked around the farm, I reflected on how much I had to be thankful for - and my heart overflowed.

I hope each one of you have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving.


I'll have several new things in the shop on Friday. I hope you'll come back and check it out.

Also, next week I'll be sharing the kitchen reveal and then the following week, I'm joining several talented ladies for the Cozy at Christmas blog tour.
See you then!


  1. We didn't get a frost. I'm just so thankful that the weather cooled off. Your farm looks heavenly.

  2. Hi Cecilia,
    Such beautiful photos!
    It has been unusually warm here too...but a couple of days ago the cold moved in and I think snow is on our way for Wednesday...
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hugs, Kimberley

    1. Thank you, Kimberley! Snow! Now that would be a treat for us. :o) Enjoy it for me, ok?
      A very Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  3. Such beautiful photos! Makes me feel like I was there. Happy Thanksgiving to you, friend! xoKathleen

    1. Thank you, Kathleen! A very Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

  4. Beautiful pictures and we finally got a little frost here too. Not enough to harm my fall garden but it finished off what was left of the spring plants because I was side track and forgot to cover. Hope you enjoy a nice Thanksgiving your place is beautiful.

    1. Thank you, Carole! It was pretty light but a frost none the less! Such a strange Fall with its warm weather. Glad your Fall garden survived. Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Hi Cecilia,
    We have not had a visit from Mr. Jack Frost yet. Very chilly here now but no frost just yet. I want to wish you a wonderful week and Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy.

  6. We got a frost too! It was very mild and all the plants are fine. In fact, I was looking out the window yesterday and couldn't believe it's the end of November. I do remember wearing shorts at Thanksgiving growing up though. :)

  7. Hi Cecilia ... we got that blast of cold air too. I slept in that morning and did not see the frost, but some outdoor shrubs I did not cover felt the freeze. So enjoyed your beautiful pictures. We will go to our daughter's ranch for Thanksgiving, so maybe I can find some Fall color.
    We too, have so much to be thankful for. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  8. We haven't had frost yet but it is getting colder here finally. Enjoyed seeing your photos. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    1. Thank you, Sharon! It was warm again today. Not supposed to cool down again until after Thanksgiving. A very happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well!

  9. Beautiful photos, Cecelia! Winter has finally arrived here, too...with snow and ice today. Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving!

  10. Even though it was 30 degrees here I saw no sign of frost. Perhaps you had more moisture in your area there. The pictures are lovely. What a wonderful place to take a walk! Blessings!

  11. Everything looks so lovely Cecilia!

    I'll take first any day. We've got about a foot of snow!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!


  12. You have a beautiful farm!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  13. Happy Thanksgiving to you. We are having meals at different family houses all day and the Cowboys play at 3:30!

    It's a great day!!!!!!!

    1. Yes, it is! Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!

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…

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…

Color Me Happy - Adding Color Back To The House

I've enjoyed our new colorful living room so much.
 The touches of red, green and blue really bring the room to life.

It made me realize that trying to do neutral wasn't me even though I love the look in other people's homes. Therefore, I have embarked on a mission to add color back into my house.

I already had the red pillows and red plaid placemats for the dining area. I also made the red plaid curtain this past year.  My wall is full of colorful pictures and art.

 I found the flowers on clearance at JoAnn's. Yay for clearance! It will be fun to have different colorful looks for the seasons.

For the kitchen, I decided to add colorful plates and what's more perfect than Fiestaware?  I have very fond memories of my mom's turquoise set especially the tea pitcher and salt & pepper shakers.

I knew there was a vendor at the Canton First Monday Trade Days that sold Fiestaware. I had bought a red pitcher a couple of years back. So in July, dinner plates came home…
