Good morning, sweet friends! Welcome to Sundays Life Among The Blooms! Hope you have your cup of coffee in hand (tea or favorite beverage).
Here on Sundays, I talk about random things going on over at White Lilac Farmhouse and things that stop me in my tracks.
WHAT’S HAPPENING AT WHITE LILAC FARMHOUSE
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with 21 people. Jim and I love having family and friends over during the holiday. It was a fun time!
My grandchildren, Madilyn and Anakin came over Friday night for a sleepover. Zach, Tyler and I played bingo with Madilyn and Anakin. I think they even had bingo cards for the pups. LOL I love this cute bingo set.
If you are local, there is a new store in Leonardtown Square called Marie & Nash. Saturday was Small Business Saturday. Madilyn and I went walking around the square to stop in the stores.
Marie & Nash had so many wonderful gift ideas. There was something for everyone.
I am loving these mugs for myself. The one with the knot is my favorite.
There were lots of food items that would be great in a basket of goodies. These breads kits were great. I believe you just add water to them.
Beautiful artesian jewelry and these “she’s birdie” would make lovely gifts. The she’s birdie is a personal safety alarm keychain made for women by women. It has a loud alarm and flashing strobe light to deter an attack. Is that not amazing! I want one for myself.
Also, local peeps we are getting a bakery in the square. Yes, you heard me right. The owners are negotiating there spot and is due to open in March. Yesterday, I was talking with one on the owners. He said they will be having baked breads too. It is exactly what we need in square.
Social will be moving over into the old French Restaurant location. It’s a much bigger space and along the main road. I believe they will be in the new space sometime in March.

BEAUTIFUL INSPIRATIONS FROM OTHERS
Here are some of my favorites inspirations this week from my blogging friends.
Look at this gorgeous ribbon wreath made by Leslie, My 100 Year Old Home. This wreath is made with ribbon and looks like Poinsettias. I love how she makes flowers with the cream, blush pink and blush metallic ribbons. Isn’t this wreath beautiful? You could do this with any color ribbons.
Have an old frame laying around? I have lots of them! My friend, Do created this beautiful Christmas artwork. Wait until you see how she made it. You can make an Easy DIY Christmas Craft Decor With Picture Frames too! Do has a wonderful step by step tutorial.
This project of Jennifer’s with Cottage On Bunker Hill stopped me in my tracks. Why? Her goal was to create a winter gallery wall and not buy a single new thing.
Jennifer got creative making four new pieces of art with items she had on hand including a piece of abstract art.
A FEW FAVORITE RECIPES
I love trying new recipes especially around the holiday. Here are a few from my blogger friends.
