The B Farm is Five

Can you believe it's been five years since I started this little blog to document the journey of our little farm? (You can check out my very first post here).

I didn't know a thing about blogging (I still don't really, ha). But it didn't matter. Here was a way to visually share our journey and mark our progress.

My first posts weren't all that great but I learned as I went.

There was so much to do!
We cleaned, painted and painted some more, cut down dead trees, moved and mowed and mowed.

And now, we almost have the house where we want it - Every wall has been painted,
from brown paneling to white
the laundry room got a makeover
Fun door to replace the hollow core one 
rusted tin wainscoting
the bathroom has been completely redone:
bye bye yucky tub
hello beautiful shower!
This vanity - swoon

and the kitchen looks totally different!

First redo - painted and removed upper cabinet over peninsula
Today with new countertops, sink, lower cabinets painted grey and under cabinet lighting
We've come a long way baby!

The art studio is in the works... the next stage is getting the electricity in.

And we're getting ready to host our daughter's wedding in October.

It's where dreams come true.

"B" Farm, I love you. I can't wait for the next stage of our journey together. It's going to be a grand adventure!

Creative Friday will be back next week plus I'll be sharing the gallery wall in the entryway at the city house so be sure to come back Monday!


  1. Awww..Cecilia. You have come such a long way with your farm! It is looking great-better every time you post. For some reason I always assumed it was a frame house--I must have missed previous pictures of it. It is a really sturdy, good looking brick home! Can't wait to see wedding pictures! lol I know...I know...I know....don't rush things- you've got work to do! Have a great, blessed weekend- xo Diana

  2. Five years, wow! I missed the beginnings so it's nice to see a recap! It all looks great and the whole area looks so serene. I envy you as I'd love to have a second home some day either like yours or maybe on a lake. Guess I'll just have to live through you vicariously until then! Xo Kathleen

    1. It's gone by quickly. I'm ready to be a one house household again though. It's a lot of work keeping two up. Soon, though. And it definitely has been fun!

  3. Congrats Cecilia! I didn't realize we started blogging the exact same time! Sure went fast didn't it?

    You've done SO MUCH to the farm, and it looks wonderful!


  4. I know you will be so happy when you can move to the Farm full time. Everything looks so inviting. You and Bruce have done a job of getting it all renewed and updated.

  5. Congratulations on the 5 year anniversary! I have been blogging just over 5 years as well. I love having all my photos and stories captured here to look back on over the years. The farm has come so far and looks amazing! Hope you're having a great weekend. I just got home a little while ago from spending part of the weekend with my daughter. Catching up on blog reading now!

    Hugs, Vicky

  6. Wow Cecelia, you have come a long way! Beautiful redos, especially the kitchen. Thanks for bringing us along. :)

  7. Happy Anniversary! You have made wonderful progress at the farm and at the city house. Keep up the good work.
