~ Love The Plates ~



I just saw this room by Aimee Herring found on Brabourne Farm blog.  The whole room is just beautiful with all the white and I love the plate collection.

~ I Heart ~

Happy Monday...I hope you had a great weekend.


I heart these buildings!








~ Little Easter Bunnies ~


These little Easter bunnies got potted.

~ Stenciled Rooms ~


I stenciled the entryway with a damask stencil.  There are so many beautiful damask stencils you can order online.  I used a flat finish background paint and stenciled with Crown Jewel craft paint.  This is an easy process but very time consuming.  It took around 20 hours to complete this room...two or so hours at a time.



This is the bedroom hallway stenciled in a fleur de lis and a rope stencil.  This too took some time.  My arms would get tired so I worked a few hours at a time.  The walls are painted in a Ralph Lauren Metallic and stenciled in Crown Jewel craft paint.

~ Vintage Telephone Table Redo ~



I bought this telephone table at Roundtop last year.


I left the base shabby, covered the back and seat in linen and added a stencil.
It looks much better.

~ Homemade Shutters ~

Charles Dilbeck was my inspiration for making these shutters. He was a well known architect in the Dallas and Oklahoma areas. I love his shutters and couldn't find any like his so I made my own.


The rule of thumb is that each shutter is supposed to be half the size of the window...they were meant to be closed over the window. This means you mount them at the very edge of the window. All my window sizes were differnt so that meant a lot of measuring.


I used 2x4's and 2x6's and cut them to size. I had to "rip" some boards length wise to get the proper size. I used a jig saw at a 25 degree angle to cut out the edge detail.


After painting, I assembled them, and bolted the finished product to our house. They adorn all our windows and we love the look!

~ Kissing Doves ~



Last year's doves are building another nest this year in the greenhouse.
 
We had four sets of twins last year.

~ Spring Is Here ~
