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.


This week Santa came through the neighborhood on the firetruck. It’s always fun to see the little children standing outside waiting for him.

Unfortunately, my video did not turnout well to share. It was very loud with all of the sirens going. The Grinch handed out candy canes to the little ones.

We invited the grandchildren that live 5 minutes away and my parents over for a pizza party. I don’t know who enjoyed seeing Santa more, my mother or the children.

After Santa left two of our neighbors little girls came over with my grandchildren for some hot chocolate.

Front Porch

This week, I finished up my front porch. No blog post was done on it. I shared photos and videos in IG and FB. Today Life Among The Blooms has all the details

I went shopping in the basement to grab some stuff. After I finished it, the bottom part looked too plain. In the basement found this vintage red box. The color and size of the box was perfect for this space. A few logs from the firepit area was placed in the box.

It turned out nice and love the reds and greens. The Plaid bucket was find at Target a few years ago. It was $5 and has been used all over the house.

Here is the video of me putting this area together.

Here are some other photos of my porch.
