Welcome back to THE SCOOP! Last week was a banner week as we hosted 357 entries from very talented bloggers all over the web! AMAZING!!! That means lots and lots of inspiration and ideas for YOU!!! And, WOW… it was so much fun visiting many of them. Before we begin this week’s party I want to share a post I did to help you get ready for your July 4th celebrations…

These POTTERY BARN INSPIRED PATRIOTIC STARS were easy to make and boy, do they make a big red,white and blue statement! Click HERE to see how to make them!


I also shared 10 TIPS FOR ARRANGING FLOWERS. The feature image is part of that post. This post is loaded with great, doable, tried and true ways to arrange and keep our cut garden flowers lasting longer! Click HERE to see this post.
Now let’s party!

 We’re happy that you’ve come to party with us this week – to inspire and to be inspired!

 Perhaps you’ve haven’t been by to visit me since the last time that it was my turn to host.  I’ve been busy, but after a refreshing weekend at Our Beach Condo, I’m ready to get back home and finish up my laundry room.  Stay tuned for that reveal next week!

 I’ve revealed two spaces since it was my turn to host.  Our Southern Screen Porch

We are right in the midst of wedding season and Debbi from Surroundings shared an easy idea for Creating DIY Elegant Elegant Wedding Invitations.  A great idea to dress up ordinary wedding invitations, especially if you’re on a budget.
