Working On The Wedding Spot

Wow, where did last week go? I was busy doing what I love best - decorating, crafting, painting, and gardening! No wonder I didn't have time to send out any posts. Fortunately, that means I have lots to share!

We (me, Bruce, Megan and Dylan) went up to the farm the first weekend in March so we could work on the wedding spot. Although Saturday was rainy, we were able to get the food planned out for the reception and ended the day with delicious smoked ribs Bruce made. Finally on Sunday, we were able to get out and start cleaning up.

 Clean up began with trimming up the bushes under the trees:

Raking leaves:

Plus we put out grass seed to grow. It's really starting to shape up! The dogs were happy getting to run around for a couple of hours as well.

 Overall, it was a very productive weekend!

This dogwood is down the hill:

I had Megan and Dylan pose by it so I could have a picture for my gallery wall:
 Aren't they cute?

In the city, the gallery wall is coming together and I'll be sharing that soon. Plus, the laundry room is also nearing completion. Be sure to come back Friday to check out a little project I did!

  1. Cecilia this is so exciting. That spot for the wedding is going to be perfect. Love the white dogwood tree too. A good sign this is a good spot. I know once you have the flowers and chairs this spot will just be perfect for their special day. The picture of the two for your gallery wall will be a treasure to have. So excited you are getting closer to the special day.
    Hugs,

  9. I love, love, LOVE this! I am sure it doesn't seem like work at all in creating such a sweet spot for a bright future.

    Also, thank you so very much for your warm and heartfelt comments.

    I wanted to let you know that I am nearing the end of my college experience and am currently doing a 7-week internship at a museum as a requirement for graduation. It is an interesting experience to be sure.

    I must admit that I am struggling to try and manage my time and make sure my family's needs are met. Sadly, this leaves little time left for visiting my favorite people in the world and their fabulous blogs. I hope you'll have patience with me. Thankfully, this time won't last forever and I will soon, once again, be able to see all the wonderful things you are doing.

    May glorious weather and lovely flowers put a spring in your step,
    Laura

  12. Beautiful couple and a perfect spot for the wedding. I know you are so excited. Love the Dogwood tree. Too bad it will not be blooming in October. But you are so artistic and talented, I know everything will be beautiful.

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…

Changing Seasons

Although the leaves won't be changing color just yet here in Texas,

the Surprise Lillies are up

Reminding us it is September and Fall is on it's way.

 It is a time for change. Time to let some things go, time to start new adventures.

I'm sure you've all noticed I haven't been blogging much lately.

You see, I've been focusing more and more on my art work.

With the completion of my studio, it is time to become serious about my art business.

So I am pouring my energy into creating my art business, exploring all the possibilities  that offers.

I am working on a new website - it will have the same address as my old art website: www.ceciliabramhall.com but it will take awhile for it to show up under the new site - it will be better as I will be able to blog and sell my artwork from there as well.  I'm still figuring things out but it is all coming together. (UPDATE: You can find me here: www.ceciliabramhallart.com )

All of which means I'm writing the post I …

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…
