Gallery Wall Reveal

 I bet you thought I forgot all about my gallery wall. Or that I had never finished it. Nope, I just got caught up in our beautiful Spring weather, a laundry room refresh, working on the wedding spot, and so on.

But today I'm finally sharing the gallery wall in my entryway at the city house. The galvanized family name is hung,

 the scrabble letter names are up, along with the photos and artwork.

I put the photos in simple frames, glued magnets to the backs, and then stuck them to this galvanized board I found at Hobby Lobby.

Jay's robot painting on an old cd

and Megan's embroidered bird
showcase examples of their artwork.

The entryway table has been refreshed with pretty Spring flowers and candles plus a galvanized bucket to hold the mailbox key and outgoing mail.

The glass dish isn't quite what I want to hold the mailbox key but it works for now.

It turned out great! I love how each piece has special meaning for our family.

In other news, I held a "Painting In The Vineyard" class at the vineyard close to our farm this weekend. Simon and Christine are such gracious hosts of Sabor a Pasion Estate and Vineyard and it's a beautiful setting. We had fun!
All set up and ready to go!
Good job, ladies!
Everyone with their beautiful paintings
I'll be teaching another class there soon - we'll be deciding on the date later this week so be sure to check their Facebook page and on my blog. We'd love to have you!


  1. Your wall turned out great, Cecelia...all of the personal touches are wonderful!

  2. Love our gallery wall! The scrabble family tiles are perfect and I love the galvanized name sign!

  3. It looks great! I have been wanting to do one of the Scrabble family boards. I need to see if I have enough to do it. I love gallery walls with pieces that have meaning to your family so much more than ones just put together to look perfect. I especially like the artwork from your kids. SO neat! Sounds like life is full for you right now....with good things! Have a great week.

    Hugs, Vicky

  4. The gallery wall is very nice. I love how the Scrabble letters worked out perfectly and the galvanized letters spelling your name are just wonderful.

  5. So cute Cecilia! I think you're having a blast these days decorating ;)


  6. The wall is great. Love the scrabble tiles with your names and how that all fit together. So sweet.
    Looks like lots of fun thing going on for you. Have a great week.

  7. What a great idea to use the magnet board! Saves you from making so many holes in the wall! What fun doing art classes ~ sounds like they're going well:) Happy Easter! xo Kathleen | Our Hopeful Home

    1. Thank you, Kathleen! I like the magnet board will allow me to update the photos when needed. The art class was fun. Looking forward to doing more. :)
      Happy Easter to you too!

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…
