Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms

  • We enjoyed a fun Thanksgiving with our family. The turkey turned out amazing! And my kids got to sit at the adult table for the first year ever which was really nice. It’s the small things right?

  2. Thank you so much for including me in with your ideas today. That was a cool surprise! Your table was amazing and I especially loved looking at the family photos! Bloggers (including me) don’t do that enough. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

  3. Your house looks just stunning. Is that garland and small lights around the kitchen window? I would love to do your small trees and window in my kitchen. Happy holidays to you and your family. Oh I almost forgot, could you post a picture of your kitchen window? I would love to copy it. Thank you
