And you can't have a farmhouse without a farm, can you? Barns, sheds, fields, woods, meadows... We have the lot. Although... it's not in the best of states. Not by far. But I kind of like old ramshackle barns, and I like the look of old weather-worn wood. Too bad we can't keep it like this for ever. The barn would eventually fall if we tried. There will be new planks replacing the old rotten ones, and there will be paint... a lot of it. We will be busy, for sure, I mainly with the inside of the house, and P with the barns, the woods and everything else. And we will be happy taking care of this old place. And no, I do not intend to turn this blog into one of those interior decorating blogs, even though I love looking through them. This is, and will remain, mainly a scrapblog. But don't be surprised if I sneak in a few photos of our projects every now and then. Consider it altering. I've altered houses before, just not big ones. I'm leaving you today with a detail of one of the windows of the barn. Don't you just love it?

Anyway, here's a balloon that didn't lose air. It's made with the brand new yummylicious Steampunk Debutante collection from Graphic 45. Can you not love this? The colors, the patterns, everything about this collection is just so gorgeous!!! And I'm so lucky to be on the Graphic 45 DT and actually have these papers in hand, not just drooling over them on the screen, like I have so many times before.
See those gears and stuff? Sometimes having a 7-year-old boy that collects stuff can come in pretty handy, because I bribed him into give me some of his stash. LOL.
So, that's it for today. It's way past bedtime here, and it will be a busy day tomorrow. Have a great weekend, everyone!

So, I have something huge coming up, and thus I need to really work on those assignments I have and finish up as many of them as possible right now. I don't have much time to actually write, so without further ado, I'm just going to show you what else I made from the fabulous Nook August kit:
