About

Hi! I'm Cecilia and I'm thrilled you're here. I'm a wife, mother, mother-in-law, artist, decorator, thrifter, and animal lover who loves the simple life and is passionate about creating art.

The B Farm is Bruce and my story of taking a neglected little farm in East Texas and turning it into our dream - a dream we've had since before we married - of owning our own little slice of heaven in the country. And y'all, it's finally happening! We found our dream right before our 30th anniversary in 2012.

Since then, we've been on a mission to update the house, improve the land, and turn a part of the barn into an art studio for me.

Here, you will find some of my art, DIY projects, decorating and thrifting, dreaming, and lots of hard work. We love our farm - it's our happy place and where our dream is coming true.

October of 2017, we hosted our daughter and son-in-love's wedding here. It was beautiful and added to the story of our farm.

We are truly glad to have you follow along.



Beyond The B Farm

In addition to The B Farm, my passion is painting. We took part of the barn and turned it into an art studio. To say I'm excited about it is an understatement! It's an incredible space full of light.

I primarily paint with oils but occasionally I'll do watercolor or acrylic. I love to paint and create beautiful works of artwork. You can find my artwork at www.ceciliabramhall.com. I look forward to you visiting me there.

  1. Absolutely love your blog I just found. I would like to find the fabric you made your farm scene pillows. Is there a pattern name or number I could research online? There is a HL about an hour away, but I want to see if they carry it first. Many thanks for any reply. Looking forward to your blog. Thanks so much, Alice

    1. Hi Alice! Thank you for your sweet comments. You're showing as a no reply blogger so I'm answering you here...hope you will see it. The fabric is called Farmhouse, I believe. Hope you find it! It's a cool pattern.

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…

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…

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…
