Warm and Cozy - A Special Gift

Having the wedding at our farm was so special. We enjoyed getting to know Megan and Dylan's friends and meeting Dylan's family.

One nice surprise we received was from Dylan's dad. He made us this wonderful fire pit.

He decorated it with Megan and Dylan's wedding date,

Texas, The Lone Star State

And the B Farm with bees

We fired it up last weekend since it was cold.

And it worked perfectly! In no time, we had a roaring fire and were toasty warm.

Thank you, Greg! We'll enjoy it for years to come.

  1. What a cool gift...or I guess I should say---what a WARM gift. I love it- I have never seen another like it in that style either- I bet it acts almost like a stove.

    Have a wonderful weekend and I love your new header- xo Diana

  3. So thoughtful! I'm sure you will enjoy using it Cecelia, and think of Dylan's dad and his generosity each time you do.

    1. Thanks, Kathleen! We love having an outside fire to sit around - when it's cold enough. Kind of iffy in Texas until December. But we'll use it when we can!

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…

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…
