I am thrilled for the buyers because they are moving to a great neighborhood in an amazing community.

But secondly, I’m thrilled for us too with the new adventure!!!

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be wrapping some things up here and then I’ll start sharing more about the new home with you.

It’s going to be a fun ride.

Our new home is an older farmhouse set on a few acres with lots of pretty gardens.

I can’t wait to get in there and start digging in the dirt!

More to come on the new adventure next week.

And yes, I will miss this home and my gardens.

We have lived here for 23 years and enjoyed every minute of it.

What’s Happening at Bricks ‘n Blooms

It was a fun week on the blog!

Since I’m still sidelined from surgery, I spent some time doing some online shopping for Christmas!

I wanted to try something new and shop a designer look for less.

Have you ever tried it before?

I learned so much from THIS post and wait until you see the savings!

Cause it is A LOT!

Christmas decorating has begun in my house!

Every year, I start with my dining room and since we are only in mid-November, I’m decorating it with lots of faux winter greens and neutral holiday decor to keep it toned down until Thanksgiving.

I’m sharing how to design a beautiful tablescape as well as what to look for when buying faux winter greens and florals.

Because I started decorating for the holidays, I shared where to buy the best faux winter greens and florals this year.

If you want to decorate without the needle drop, THIS post is for you!

And while we are chatting about artificial winter greens, I also shared my favorite sources for faux Christmas trees.

After 23 years of decorating with a live Christmas tree, we made the switch last year.

And decorating for Christmas could not be easier.

From slim to full, flocked to unflocked, THIS post has you covered.

Have you ever made your own outdoor winter planters before?

They are SO EASY to do and the best part?

Can cost almost nothing if you take cuttings from your yard.

And what if you don’t have enough greens on your property?

No worries!

Ask a kind friend or neighbor who does.

Or you can shop at the local nurseries.

My favorite winter planter so far was last year’s.

If the ground is still pliable and not frozen where you are, now is a great time to plant perennials, shrubs, trees, and bulbs.

Nurseries are selling stock off at a huge discount.

And you can plant now for a gorgeous spring garden.

If you’ve never planted bulbs before, THIS post is for you!
