Please Join Me for The Scoop #82

It’s time for another edition of The Scoop and I am super excited that it’s Labor Day weekend! That means it’s the unofficial end of summer…although somebody forgot to tell my lawn to stop growing. Sooo…I am following Southern tradition and putting away my white shoes (or I would if I had any)…and I am also pulling out my pumpkins! Woo hoo! Even though the temps are still in the high 80s, I am calling it fall, y’all! My favorite season is here at last! So with that announcement out of the way…let’s get this party started!
Welcome back to The Scoop
The weekly linky party featuring the scoop on the best posts from around the web!
More exposure + less time = win win!

This is Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict and I am really excited to be your host this week! I have had so much fun checking out your fabulous links and, as always, I am amazed at your creativity and talent! Thanks so much for sharing your creations at our party. As usual, I found a little theme running among some of the links and shared them with you as I do every weekend.


Just in case you missed some of the themed feature posts from previous weeks, here they are:
I am also featuring some of your links on my Pinterest board Shared at The Scoop Linky Party and I have also shared them on my blog's Facebook page. Soooo...please know that linking up on The Scoop will not only get you more exposure on multiple blogs, but on Pinterest and Facebook as well!
What a great deal, huh?

And now for a few things that caught my eye this week…
  transferwareSherry at No Minimalist Here showed us the fabulous thrifting score that she had to dig through piles of junk to find. I am having major tureen envy! And…you will not believe what she paid for it all! It was a real “start the car” moment!
blueberry breakfast tray  
Sarah at Hyacinths for the Soul shared her wonderful breakfast on the terrace with us. Not only is she having some of my favorites, she is serving them on a pretty Proven├žal tray with a sunny mug, taking me back to the south of France!
Barn 011_thumbAnd speaking of France, Red Hen Home showed us how she made this unusual frenchy clock face table…love it!  
The Vintage Farmhouse showed off her fabulous one day craft closet make-over…amazing! Having just given one of my closets a make-over this week, I know how much work went into this project…and hers is pretty to boot!  
Got some mismatched books you would like to disguise and make interesting at the same time? Cottage in the Oaks has the perfect solution for you! Head over to see how she accomplished this look!
Restored-door-hardware-GorgeousAnd finally, Glass Slipper Restorations showed us her unusual method for restoring vintage hardware without using any chemicals! I love this idea since I have some old hardware that I have been postponing tackling!

  14. No,no,no...School doesn't start till next Monday, so it is still summer here. Plenty of time for Fall, it lasts a long time!
    Oct. and Nov. are long enough to see pumpkins for me. I am still enjoying the beautiful summer flowers, hold the pumpkins please! Maybe because we don't get summer weather till June and cold weather in Nov., we treasure our days at the beach here.

  15. Debbie, Thanks so much for featuring my tureen. It was one of my best deals.....ever!

  16. Debbie, thanks for hosting The Scoop. It's still way toooooo hot here to even think about fall or pumpkins, yet. I'm still wearing my white sandals and shorts, too! LOL

    I noticed that the thumbnail prints for the linky party are in a 2-photo wide format. Usually they have been in a format with several photos on the same row which I find much easier to navigate and scroll through.

    Have a great week...
