Thanks to Caroline, and my blogger friends and readers, my house has been transformed. Here's my bedroom, after I made bedding and slipcovers.
the dining room, after I made some major changes,
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.
