Please Join Me for The Scoop #78

It's time for another edition of The Scoop...the first one for August of this year! Yikes! I can't believe summer is almost over...can you? I've been spending lots of time with the grandchildren before school starts back...squeezing in as much time as possible. And I am also enjoying reading about your wonderful projects and thrifting finds and checking out the recipes that you have been sharing! I can't wait to see what you've got this let's get this party started!   

Welcome to The Scoop
The weekly linky party that features the scoop on the best posts from around the web!

The Scoop

More exposure + less time = win win!

 We are 
Anita from Cedar Hill Ranch,
Linsey from Farmhouse Porch,
 Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict
and Anne from White Lace Cottage.
Our guest hosts will join us again in the fall.

Hi! This is Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict and I will be your host this week! I am so impressed by everything that all of you are sharing! There are some very talented people out there in the blog world!

I hope you have noticed that I have been  choosing some of your links along a theme each week and sharing them on Saturdays! Just in case you have missed any of them, here they are so far:

And last week I was thrilled to see lots of links starring my favorite and white! Be sure to check them out here!

I am also featuring some of your links on my new Pinterest board Shared at The Scoop Linky Party and I have shared them on my blog's Facebook page.  
Sooo...please know that linking up to The Scoop will not only get you more exposure across multiple blogs, it will also get you noticed on Pinterest and Facebook as well! What a great deal, huh? So thanks for joining us! 
And now...on to the features!

My heart nearly stopped when I saw this fabulous French antique chair that The Laundry Can Wait found on Craig's List for a song! She says she found her dream chair...and mine, too! #MajorChairEnvy

The Thrifty Rebel shared her amazing DIY silver goblet wind chimes...beautiful! 
And what a wonderful sound they must make!

I am amazed at the intricacy of the paint job done by Remodelando la Casa on this Greek key design tray! Such a classic look!

Green Willow Pond showed us how to make these perfect little paper flowers!
 Love that script paper!

This sounds unusual but heavenly...baked avocados from Lamberts Lately! It has two of my favorites ...avocados and it has to be good!
 I am trying this one for sure!

Cindy at Glass slipper Restorations shared the process of baling hay through her beautiful photographs. I was particularly struck by this photo. It almost looks like a painting and reminds me of a modern day version of Claude Monet's haystacks.

And finally, Far above Rubies shared a detailed tutorial for making this unique burlap and lace table runner...gorgeous!

  1. Thank you so much for featuring my cake and dishes made by us, yay, I feel so honored, along side such really fabulous features, too!. I'm now posting how I DIYed the two plates I promised I will share. Thank you for hosting this week too. Have a blessed week.

  2. Debbie, you picked some wonderful features for your review, and I love the way you select posts that fit a theme. Wonderful idea. Again, many things for including my Tea Time Blues in your mosaic. I've taken inspiration from Simply Suzanne's blue and white that I will share soon. Thanks for hosting this terrific party.

  3. Hi Debbie,
    Can you delete mine so I can try again.
    The pic didn't work at all.

  10. Hi Debbie, This is my first time at your party and I am thrilled to be here! It looks like I should have joined when all the blue and white links were up as my post is all about that very idea. The perfect color combination! I'm definitely going to try that bacon and avocado recipe. Thanks for hosting! Linda

  13. Dearest Debbie,
    Thank you so much for the feature of my antique chair. I was excited to be selected, as there were so many great linkups as well. Thanks for hosting.


  14. Debbie,

    I just joined your site and your party. I've been an occasional blogger so I'm way behind with social media and would love to overhaul my blog. Love the people that you featured this week! To get featured, do you have to have the most views or clicks? I guess I would never be featured if that's the case. I love the summer collages that you pinned. Just started playing around with collages and really love using them. Thanks for being the host for this weeks party. I've joined lots of parties but they never really generated much traffic. Maybe my content stinks. I'll hang in there and keep trying because I love vintage, crafting, decorating and painting stuff. Practice makes you get better right?


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I appreciate my wonderful readers!... Debbie
