Please Join Me for The Scoop #168

Hi's time for another edition of The Scoop and a chance to have a peek at all of the wonderful ideas that you share with us each week! Here in the South, it's been rain, rain, rain! I am finding myself dreaming of summer and sunny days! Sooo.... 

...I decided to bring a little sunshine to me since it doesn't seem to want to come on its own! I created these Restoration Hardware Inspired Seashell and Starfish Stands to remind me that sunny days are not far away! And, best of all, they only cost $1.00 each! You can see them plus 20 more Restoration Hardware inspired ideas by clicking here.

Now...I can't wait to see what you have to share!

Welcome back to The Scoop!
The weekly party featuring the scoop on the best from around the web!

We are 
Yvonne from StoneGable
and Suzy from Worthing Court

Our host this week is...

Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict

Hi everyone and thanks so much for joining us each week! After all, it wouldn't be a party without our guests! We've had a break after a week of rain for some beautiful spring weather so I am getting my patio in order for summer. It's time to add flowers!

On the blog, I was excited to be invited to curate a board of RESTORATION HARDWARE INSPIRED DECOR DIYS for Hometalk! Be sure to head over and check them out. I have included a couple of super easy and inexpensive ideas of my own!

And if you know me, you know that, as a retired French teacher, I always have a little bit of France on my mind and in my home. So I am sharing FIVE WAYS TO ADD FRENCH LAVENDER TO YOUR HOME...that wonderful scent that takes me to Provence every time! You will also find some great tips from our Country French design group as well!

And now for the fun part...I get to share some of your wonderful ideas that caught my eye last week!

Poppy at With a Dash of Color shared her pretty Spring Tea Tray Vignette. Bird nests and flowers just say spring to me!

Beth at Mary Beth's Place showed us her beautiful French Chair Makeover...created especially for her mom!

You know I loved this tablescape...Butterflies in Blue & White...from Judith at Botanic Bleu! Pretty place cards and fresh flowers add the perfect touch!

Hey...Cinco de Mayo is not far away so be sure to file away this recipe for Cinco de Mayo Mini Taco Dips from Mary at Home is Where the Boat Is! Yummy!

And you've gotta love the bright spring colors in Julie's Spring Wreath that Will Make You Smile! Head on over to Love My Simple Home to check it out!

And now...I can't wait to see what you have to share, so let's get this party started!

  6. Debbie,
    What a wonderful surprise to be in this week's features. Thank you so much for the honor to be included with the other fabulous features. Texas could always use your extra rain, too. We are getting quite a bit of rain for us, but after several drought years, we need it to build up our underground water supplies.
