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 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 didn't think I'd write until we moved and finished our last big project at the farm.


But sadly the time as come for me to say good-bye here at The B Farm.

I've been thinking about it for some time now - while I have loved the process and the friends I've made, keeping up this blog is very time consuming - time I need and want to spend creating art.


Although we still have several projects we want to complete - fireplace wall, kitchen/dining room ceiling, closing in the garage, adding a bathroom to the studio, etc. - it is time to say good-bye.


I just no longer have the time for this blog.


I'll still post  pictures of ongoing projects over on Instagram @ceciliabramhallart and on facebook under Cecilia Bramhall if you'd like to follow along.

I want to thank all of you for following along on our little journey, for commenting, and for your friendship.

It has meant the world to me and I value your friendship. I truly hope you will connect with me on facebook/Instagram and stop by my new art website and say hi.

Good-bye, my friends.

Cecilia

  4. Oh Cecelia! I’m sad to see you stop blogging but totally get it and have to say I’m not surprised. Your art is wonderful and deserves all the time you can give it.

    I think we started blogging around the same time (2012) and I have been grateful for your friendship through the years. Once we finally get settled, who knows, maybe your art will grace our walls one day! That would be SO cool :).

    All the best to you. I know you will be successful and of course, I will see you on IG. ❤️

  6. awww...Cecilia---seems we've hardly known ye,lass. I certainly do understand your commitment to your studio and your art but I will miss the old B Farm blog. However, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do and I know you are just going to soar and as you are soaring you are going to make beautiful artwork for lots of people to enjoy.

    I love that lion..and I think he has that 'sad' look in his eye...he's beautiful.

    Have a wonderful time and I will follow you on FB..but I don't do much on IG (yet). lol xo Diana

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…
