Hi! I'm Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict and I am excited to be your host this week...and the final host for 2013! Next week will begin a new year with lots more fun and inspiration and our 100th Scoop! Please be sure to come back to visit because we have a treat planned for you!

Also, once you have linked up and checked out all of the fabulous inspiration here at the Scoop, be sure to head on over to my blog where I am sharing my readers' favorite posts from this year...with some fun and inexpensive projects for you to try!

But now...let's get this party started! I am excited to introduce our guest host...Kirby from Kirb Appeal! If you have never visited her blog, be sure to head on over because you are in for a treat!

My name is Kirby and I’m an…oh, wait.  Let me start again.
My name is Kirby and I blog over at Kirb Appeal.  I am thrilled to be here at The Scoop, and here’s the scoop on me:
I am a wife (of DL, my partner in crime) and two grown (when did that happen?!?) children.  I also teach high school English to at-risk students and have a small furniture and home d├ęcor business.
In terms of blogging, I am pretty much just ridiculous.  If you want to read some of my silliness, here’s a post I wrote about decorating for the holidays.

It was definitely a treat to look at all the great projects and recipes this week; I managed to check out all the posts (no school this week) and everyone did a wonderful job!  I have had fun choosing a few to feature.

First, as you may have predicted, Home Is Where the Boat Is had me at candy cane vodka!


Next, I fell in love with the buffalo check curtains, awesome backsplash, and holiday touches that Patty has in her kitchen.


Just Not the Cakes had a yummy-sounding recipe for something called Banoffee Pie.  Yes, please.


And I love that Shopgirl gives us directions for a DIY boxwood wreath!


Finally, Chateau Chic was just that with touches of red!


Thanks so much to the ladies at The Scoop for asking me to participate…it has been fun checking everything out!

Thanks for joining us, Kirby!
