Hope you enjoyed your visit!

This huge interior design and home renovation adventure will certainly test me, but I'm throwing caution to the wind and plunging head first into design euphoria. I have  great things in store for Mrs. Colonial, and hope I can share every exciting and beautiful detail with you! 

There's a jingle
on the farm.

Hi, I’m Sandy Sheldon.

My husband and I had the opportunity to purchase this stately Colonial in California’s wine country. I created this blog so I could take you along with me as I completely transform this property creating my family's dream home, Rock Haven Farm. We'll fully renovate the main house, add a ground floor master suite, and build a rustic entertainment barn, the Taj Ma Barn. Together we'll navigate the world of interior design, and at the end, bring the loves of my life home to the farm!


If you’d like to know how it all began, you can read my story HERE.

This amazing Colonial home has stood patiently at the top of her ridge for many, many years waiting for a smitten candidate to make her sparkle again. From the moment she cast her spell, I was hooked.

It’s official - I’m in love with this house! This truly is a dream project, and right now, I don’t want to wake up!

I'm so happy to share this little piece of paradise with you . . .

I think I was magically infused with a love of old homes.
