Please Join Me for The Scoop #85

It's time for another edition of The Scoop! It's officially fall now and we are in full fall decorating mode here at my house...getting ready for the All Things Home Fall Tour! Here's just a little peek at what you will see, so I hope you will drop back by on Wednesday, September 25th to see it all! Now...I want to see what you are up to, so let's get this party started!

Welcome back to The Scoop
The weekly linky party featuring the scoop on the best 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 soon..

Our host this week is...Linsey from Farmhouse Porch

Just a couple of new things to share with y'all today...
First of all, I finally got around to adding little burlap curtains to my hutch! I bought this hutch for $75 from a thrift store a couple of years ago and they had lost the doors. So now I can hide that unsightly clutter! I found these cute little pre-made curtains on ebay for cheap.

 I'm trying to phase out my old (falling apart) rush seat ladder back and black chairs with lighter painted chairs. I'm even pondering long benches on either side. I'd love big, white slip-covered chairs at each end, but that isn't in the budget. And honestly, it's not high on the priority list, so the room just slowly evolves as I find things.

And in the world of art...a pumpkin is born. I completed this one today. Here it is...

It feels soooo good to finish a painting...especially when you are a mom, and your life is a sea of never ending chores and rituals. As moms, our job is never "project based."  That's why it is so important to have hobbies and goals that are completely separate from family life. Painting is a mental escape for me because I can't think about anything else while I do it. Do YOU have a hobby? A painting? A craft? Killer recipes? Can you do wonders with a drill or chalk paint? Share it now....
Here are a just a few of the posts that really sparkled last week!!!

With a blog named Just Paint it White, I know I'm going to see some eye candy when I open a post like this...

Amazing pitcher. Vibrant orange autumn decor...need I say more?
By With a Dash of Color

My neighbor (literally) over at From My Front Porch to Yours shared a few beautiful autumn white vignettes...

Fairhope Supply Co. shared a cute coastal cottage tour. I feel relaxed just looking at it!

And my oh my, do I adore a good almond cookie. I'd love to have some of these fab looking Raspberry Almond Thumbprint cookies, by True Blue Baking, with a nice cup of hot vanilla tea right this minute!

Classic Almond Thumbprint Cookies
