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

    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

How I Stained My Concrete Floors

If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen me working on the studio floor. It was plain concrete and I wanted to seal it and give it color.  I honestly didn't want to worry about messing it up if I dropped paint on it. My idea was to stain the concrete and thankfully, I had a good resource for information. My friend, Cecilia, at My Thrift Store Addiction stained her concrete floor . She assured me it wouldn't be hard so I decided to go for it. I was fortunate I didn't have carpet to remove like Cecilia did. I just needed to clean the floor really good first - you can see from the picture  how dirty it was. So I began by sweeping then vacuuming all the Sheetrock and joint compound dust up. Next I pulled out my wet vac and gave the floor a good scrubbing. I let it dry overnight. The next day, I looked to see what kind of stain I had. I found a quart of Minwax Early American wood stain that was almost full. I figured I'd try it out so I started in the bac

Changing Seasons

Dogwood leaves at the farm 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. "Lion in Full Color" to remind us to live life fearlessly  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 b
