Easy diy’s, decorating tips and two room makeovers are on the spring line up!

I have a couple home decor posts I’d like to share with you!

 Hi everyone and welcome back to The Scoop! Thanks so much for joining our party and for sharing your wonderfully creative ideas each week. I hope you are staying warm and cozy! I know that some of you have had a lot of snow and we even had a little bit here in the South. For me, this is the time of year when it’s nice to have something warm to drink and sit by the fire!
So I have shared my SEVEN SECRETS FOR A COZY HOME! I start right at the front door and share some inexpensive ways to add that warm feeling…from easy DIYs to low-calorie comfort food! Yes…you read that right! Be sure to head over and check it out!

And can you believe it? Valentine’s Day is only two weeks away! I love to give my Valentine décor a little rustic farmhouse touch and I have some simple ideas that you might like. It’s so easy and inexpensive to do, too! Just check out my SIX WAYS TO GET FARMHOUSE VALENTINE STYLE.

And if you are a fan of Downton Abbey like me, you are going to want to head over to my blog because Heritage Lace is sponsoring a DOWNTON ABBEY GIVEAWAY with a prize package worth over $300! Be sure to enter HERE.

It’s always so hard to choose, but here are a few things that caught my eye this week!

Deb at Seeking Lavender Lane shared her FAMILY ROOM REVEAL for the New Year New Room Challenge and you will not believe the difference! Gorgeous!

Diana at Adirondack Girl @ Heart showed us how she made her VINTAGE VALENTINE’S SWEATER WREATH…so cute! I’ll be looking a a red wool sweater now!


Mary at Home Is Where the Boat Is always creates beautiful holiday treats and these are no exception! Her VALENTINE BROWNIE TRUFFLES are not only pretty, but look yummy, too!


If you are a big fan of Fixer Upper like me, you understand the rising popularity of shiplap! Kimm at Reinvented revealed how she and her hubby added FAUX SHIPLAP TO THEIR FIREPLACE WALL on a budget!! I’m saving this one!

And finally, Amy at Atta Girl Says shared how she made these wonderful HOMEMADE HEART-SHAPED BATH BOMBS…a perfect gift idea for Valentine’s Day!
