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! Thanks so much for joining us at The Scoop! We are excited to have you as our guests and always look forward to seeing what you have to share with us each week!


 July and watermelon just go hand in hand here at CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT, so I created my NO-SEW WATERMELON WREATH to reflect just that!  It’s a fun and festive front-door greeting for your guests and was super easy to make since all you have to do is JUST TIE IT! You will find the full tutorial HERE.

And I am also excited to share another one of my easy projects…French ticking TEA TOWELS FROM A PILLOW CASE! I love tea towels and also like to use them as over-sized napkins This little short cut makes it so easy to create them! And…you will find the FREE GRAPHIC included as well. Now I am on the hunt for some pretty vintage pillowcases, too. The possibilities are endless!

There are always so many wonderful ideas that it’s hard to choose, but here are just a few that caught my eye last week!

I am definitely going to try these PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES from Jo-Anna at A Pretty Life. Ice cream and my favorite cookie…win, win!

Shirley at Housepitality Designs has me looking at my cake plates a little differently with her SUMMER TABLESCAPE OF LEMONS AND DAISIES. Who knew you could turn them upside down?

I love these ROMANTIC INDUSTRIAL FRAMES from Cat at Pocket Full of Posies using old belts as hangers! Clever!

You are not going to believe how Jamie at Anderson + Grant made her own RUSTIC DOUGH BOWL! Be sure to check it out!


Karen at Karen’s Up on the Hill gave a favorite piece a MILK PAINT MAKEOVER and I love the result…such a fun color!

Now…I can’t wait to see what you have to share, so let’s get on with the party!
