It’s been a full year for me, and my, wow what a year. My house has changed dramatically. Thanks for all of your wonderful inspiration and advice; it’s gone from lots of reds to whites and neutrals. I want to mention my friend Caroline, since I decided to take the neutral plunge after seeing just how gorgeous her house was. (You would really enjoy seeing her lovely home, if she would just let me come with my camera some time. Maybe if you leave a comment saying you want to see more, she’ll let me take more photos, HINT HINT.)
Thanks to Caroline, and my blogger friends and readers, my house has been transformed. Here’s my bedroom, after I made bedding and slipcovers.
and the living room, after I made slipcovers for all of my furniture. (I still haven’t painted the walls, yet, but I’m thinking about it.)
This was the year we had our first party at the ranch. We timed it so the bluebonnets would be in full bloom.
We added a daybed to our Tree House,
And tweaked our back porch.
What a year. We are also building a new city house, and I’ll be doing another update soon. I’ve got lots to pick out, and I need your help selecting finishes. (I’m trying to decide on lighting fixtures over my island and breakfast room right now, so if you have any suggestions for me, please let me know.)
So that’s a wrap. What’s in store for 2013?
Well, I’ll have lots of posts on the new house as it should be completed by summer. I’m planning to do many of the paint finishes myself, so I’ll be sharing that process with you, even the mistakes. We also have a new deck by the creek, and I’ll bring you down there for a tour, when it’s warmer. I’m currently working on curtains, and some sort of wind break system for our back porch.
I’m so glad you’re here, and I know I say this a lot, but truly I appreciate your visits so much. Here’s a big hug from Texas.
May your dreams come true this year.
