Castle Creek Table

Castle Creek Table

Farmhouse furniture has been trending for a few years now, typically with white on white with minimal wood finishes.  Though the  exterior of the old farmhouse I grew up in was white with black shutters, the interior rooms were full of color.  The rooms all had wood, marble, crystal, and colored glass and furniture in the home had a story to tell.     I've had this little breakfast table in my kitchen for many years, all white with white chairs, until this past week when I decided to paint it in one of my favorite Prairie Paint  colors, Castle Creek. The inspiration...

Maple Sap and Turkey Tail

As the summer heat turns the milkweed to amber, I know that its just a month or two before the leaves will begin to turn to the gorgeous colors of fall.  One of my favorite colors in our Prairie Paint Fall Collection is Maple Sap.  The color Maple Sap is like a rich, deep orange-ish, golden brown that can be found in the crisp leaves of fall or an heirloom pumpkin.  Whenever I am painting a fall design and need an orange, I reach for Maple Sap.  I do love our Pumpkin Patch color for brighter, vintage inspired oranges, but Maple Sap...

New Moonbeams & Cabin Dream Quilts

Whenever I am asked what barn quilt is my favorite, I have a difficult answering.  So many of our designs come from the heart, a story, a family legacy.  Those designs take on the life and love of the client's story.  For me personally, my favorite is the Moonbeams & Cabin Dreams Collection.     It is the story of family's experiences in homesteading the Nebraska plains in the late 1800's and the 1900's prior to the Dustbowl and Great Depression.  Their stories have been published in the history of Nebraska along with the settlers that settled those empty plains.  Their...
