Please Join Me for The Scoop #93

Woo hoo! Christmas decorating has officially begun at my house! I have just finished my first project of the holiday season and I still have lots more to do so I have to get a head start! It's just  few short days until Thanksgiving...and all of that yummy Christmas will be here before you know it! But for now...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!

The Scoop

More exposure + less time = win win!

We are 
Anne from White Lace Cottage
 Barb from The Everyday Home
and Yvonne from StoneGable.

Hi, I'm Yvonne from StoneGable! And I'm the newest host of

The Scoop!

I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be joining this group of fabulous bloggers and all around wonderful girls... not to mention being a permanent host of one of the hottest linkies in blogland!

For those of you who are not familiar with my blog, I'll share a wee bit about it... and me!

I've been blogging for almost 4 years. My blog, StoneGable is also the name of our farmhouse inspired home.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE blogging and all of my dear wonderful readers!

I blog about decorating...



Painting furniture, crafts, diy's and sewing projects...

And all things home...

I hope you stop by StoneGable for a visit.

My front door is always open to friends... old and new!

It's my pleasure to introduce our guest host for this week...

Kelly from


I am a huge fan of  MY SOULFUL HOME and loved getting to know her better lately, as we have worked on a couple of showcases together!

Kelly is going to tell you a little bit about herself and introduce our featured links from last week's Scoop!

 I am happy and honored to be the host of the Scoop #93!

The Scoop is a top notch party run by some of the best and loveliest bloggers.

 I just had the pleasure of collaborating with these ladies on the first Scoop Tour - Creating Fall Vignettes. If you didn't have a chance to see all of that autumnal beauty and get all those decorating tips head on over. But first let me share what caught my eye this week at the Scoop...

 I really fell for the Fall Rake Wreath from Hill House Homestead.

 I was motivated to gather up some feathers, leaves & twigs by the Inspired by Nature vignette shared with us by Kathleen of Faded Charm.

 Speaking of Twigs, Twiggs Studio shared with us a delicious recipe for churros. Have you had churros, aka Mexican donuts? My girls LOVE getting churros from street vendors here in LA. Now we can make our own at home. (My sweet tooth is telling me that is Nutella on the side…you think? )

Let's see, we have a wreath, a vignette, a recipe ~ how 'bout a DIY…

This one really turned me on. ( hahaha) The mason jar chandelier from Nest of Bliss. So farmhouse, yet so modern. Really well done. I want one!

 I never want to fall to end. I adore Thanksgiving for all it stands for and all the stuffing I can stand to eat, but we all know it is coming faster than Rudolf pulling that sleigh. So, I have to share with you this fantastic work of art by Denise on a Whim. Check out her stenciled, chippy Christmas sign. Spot on Denise!

 Thanks to everyone who linked up to the Scoop #92. I enjoyed checking out all your posts. Hope to see you here again sometime soon or come visit me at My Soulful Home, join me on Facebook or get on "board' with me at Pinterest.

Many thanks to the Scoop'ers for having me!
