Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms

What a week it was!

We spent some time at my daughter’s college last weekend for a visit.

It was really fun to meet some of Mackenzie’s friends and spend some time with her.

We went to Super Saturday, which is just one huge frat party, and visited a local winery.

The weather was ridiculously hot but it was a fun day nonetheless!

And we got to see one of Mackenzie’s lifelong BFF’s too.

This weekend, Chris and I spent time in Vermont at the cabin.

We went out to dinner and shopped at the outdoor antique flea market.

And we got our last boat rides in for 2021!

The weather was spectacular!

Sadly, it’s time to start wrapping things up from the summer so we can prepare for ski season.

The leaves are changing and winter will arrive pretty quickly here so we are preparing for it now.

It looked so beautiful on the lake though!

Cheers to a great season!

In addition to seeing my daughter at school and spending some time in Vermont, I spent some time in the gardens this week doing some fall plantings, cleanups and cutting some flowers for arrangements.

I’m all about the flower arrangements these days.

It’s been so fun going out there and cutting some blooms to enjoy indoors.

Anyway, I can’t wait to show you what I worked on this week!

It was a fun week on the blog!

For starters, I found this amazing copper boiler when I went thrifting a few weeks ago.

When I saw it, I knew it would make a great planter.

There are two ways to enjoy a thrift find as a container garden but there are a few things you need to do to help plants thrive in them.

  1. It sounds like you had three best weekend Stacy! I’m so glad you got to visit your daughter. I’m sure it was bittersweet knowing that this would be the last boat ride of the season. We’re going to be so busy in the garden going forward! Thanks so much for sharing my garden in your post. Have a great week.

    1. Sad to put it away for sure! But we had a nice weekend out on the lake and it was beautiful leaf peeping from the boat! xo

  2. Stacy,
    I love fall but it’s sad to put away all the summer toys. Thanks so much for sharing my plate chargers this week. You are so sweet.
