Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms

It’s been a quiet week here. My daughter, Shana, is preparing to head back to college so we have been busy packing her back up and spending time with her before she leaves.

I just received all my seed packets from Floret Flower Farm to start some flowers from seed. I will share what I’m growing and how I’ll be starting seed indoors without a greenhouse next week.

And my amaryllis are still blooming! They look totally amazing and look so bright and cheerful in my living room. If you didn’t grow them this year, be sure to put them on your list for next year!


I keep them here in houseplant alley located in my living room. It’s on the south side of my home and gets lots of direct light. I received a few messages about the houseplants I have here and if you want to learn more about how to keep houseplants happy and healthy, CLICK HERE.

Amaryllis blooms and houseplants in winter

On the blog this week, I joined 10 talented home decor bloggers to bring you some winter home decorating ideas.

And I also shared my visit with the Traveling Teacup. If you missed that one, be sure to check it out. It was one of the most fun blogs to write! I dedicated it to my amazing mother-in-law for her birthday and shared my favorite spot for tea in town.

Amazing Inspiration from Around the Web

I love finding cool inspiration from around the web and wanted to share some of what I’m loving right now.

My favorite thing about blogging is the great friends I’ve made around the globe.

And I want to share some of them with you this week because they are really inspiring me.

If you love vintage collections as much as I do, you will love my good friend Jenn from Down Shiloh Road‘s gorgeous vintage home and farmhouse decorating style. She shared some great after Christmas winter decorating tips this week. Stop by and check it out!

    1. You are so welcome! I am so excited to do this with you this year! I’ll be a bit behind due to hardiness zone but it will be fun to see how it all comes together! xoxoxo
