Please Join Me for The Scoop #101

We have a lot going on this week at The Scoop! 
We are featuring our third blog tour with lots of inspiration for creating a warm and cozy home...something that will certainly come in handy with the temperatures we have had lately! I am excited to be on the schedule for Monday, so head on over to my blog here to see the DIY Sharpie mugs that I am sharing! There is a great giveaway with two $100 gift certificates from as well!
Last week, we were excited to celebrate our 100th party with another wonderful giveaway! And...we have a winner! It's Juli H. Congratulations, Julie! If you would like, you may see it on the Rafflecopter at the bottom of last week's post here. 
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 
Barb from The Everyday Home
Yvonne from StoneGable
and Suzy from Worthing Court

Where is it 4 degrees one day and rainy and 70 degrees 4 days later?
In Eastern North Carolina. 
The land of "if you don't like the weather, wait until tomorrow."
Hi Everyone!
This is Barb with The Everyday Home and I am 
happy to be your Co-Host this week.
I sure hope everyone is experimenting a Winter thaw now.
Unfortunately, I'm afraid that the worst may still be ahead of us.
So, I thought you would love to get some ideas for
cozying up your home for Winter.
25 Fabulous Bloggers will be sharing their
"Cozy and Warm" ideas all this week. 
Head on over to Confessions of a Plate Addict to see
the full schedule and Monday's projects.
I can't wait to share my "Cozy Home" project with you this Friday.  
I've just completed some major "No-Cost" furniture changes in my
home in an effort to create a warmer and welcoming setting.
Until then... I would like to introduce you to one of my very dear
friends - Amy at Atta Girl Says.  If you don't follow Amy's
blog, you have NO idea what you are missing.
She's a DIY/Craft/Recipe Diva...and I just adore her.
So...take it away Amy!
Amy of Atta Girl Says
Hi, I'm Amy from the blog Atta Girl Says, where I share ideas to make
your home brighter and your heart lighter. I'm very excited to be
hosting The Scoop this week!
This is Scoop #101, and in college a 101 level class is usually an
introductory one. So, what better excuse to introduce myself and
my blog to you.
Atta Girl Says
Crafty, sassy and irreverent, and just a little bit frazzled, I'm a
"recovering" journalist, a "tarnished" Southern belle living in
North Carolina and mother to the sweetest little boy ever.
Creativity keeps me up at night and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I started my blog nearly two years ago to nurture my creativity and
to encourage other women to do the same. I'm a cook, crafter,
furniture painter, decorator and consummate dabbler in all things domestic.
Here are a few of my recent projects:
Moroccan Preserved Lemon Recipe
Lego Table with Storage: Tips for Organizing and Storing Legos
How to Style a Vintage Bar Cart
Fire Crackers Easy Party Food Recipe
I loved looking through all the links from last week's Scoop.
The tough part was picking projects to feature. There's so much
wonderful inspiration in this party every week...
like these hanging globe terrariums from Town-N-Country Living.
Succulents are easy to grow and I think we could all use a little
green as we deal with these polar vortex temperatures!

As a furniture painter, I fell in love this this Swedish Gustavian paint treatment
I Meeshu U created using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. It is simply
gorgeous and what a transformation!

I didn't make any specific New Year's resolutions this year,
but getting and staying organized is always a goal of mine. I love,
love, love how Bohemian Junktion has organized her craft supplies.
What a find that rotating bin was!Scoop Features

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and these
Valentine's gift boxes from Cowboy's Daughter Designs are a
sweet way to say I love you.

My 1929 Charmer has created quite the winter wonderland with
this lovely vignette on her buffet.

Thanks so much for this chance to guest host at The Scoop.
I was honored to choose features from a party that delivers
