Welcome back to THE SCOOP! We are SO HAPPY YOU ARE HERE. WELCOME, WELCOME and don’t mind my ‘shouty caps’.

We are
Yvonne from StoneGable
and Suzy from Worthing Court
 
Your host this week is
wedding
 
 
Anita here, and it’s my anniversary this month. I’ve been married 33 years. Here I am with my dad on the big day. I didn’t show a photo of my husband, because for some reason he doesn’t want his photo on my blog! (Can you imagine?) My dad’s birthday is this month which also another good reason to have his photo here. Oh that ’25 inch waist’ I miss you!
 
Okay let’s get this party started.

  1. Thank you for the chance to link up each week, Yvonne. I’m sure you’ve heard this from others but I get many visitors at Poofing the Pillows from this link up party. 🙂

  2. Yvonne, you are the best. Thank you for all you do to share with us on your blog. I look forward to it every day!

  3. Enjoyed going through the Scoops, clicked on about five of them, read the articles…plus clicked on some other links in the articles – lol. My husband and I are doing a kitchen refresh this week so I was looking for info about backsplashes. We’re considering beadboard, but last night I was talking with my mom on the phone and she told me I will regret that choice. I noticed you have a beadboard backsplash in your kitchen, Yvonne…is it difficult to maintain, especially near the sink and stove?

    P.S. Hope I’m not posting twice…had some troubles but I’d copied it just in case and I got a message that I was posting too quickly. LOL – what???

  5. Thank you for all the ideas. We are using lanterns for our daughter’s wedding and then I can use them in my house. Great inspiration.

  6. Thank you Stonegable for all your decorating ideas. I have used some like decorating my dining room table. Kenny and I want to put in shelving and a fireplace just like the one you have (Living Room). It’s something new everyday that I see when I view your site.

  7. Thank you for party time ! I am toasting Anita’s wedding picture with her Dad ! ( drinking coffee !) Love all the ideas this week…thank you Yvonne …your blog is a special gift to all of us ….Smiles…Anne

  8. Going back to last weeks post, I just have to say Thank You, again. I have been taking room by room and organizing. My mother was only 43 when she passed away, as I was cleaning I channeled your words and hers. She always told me, if I put things away when I was finished with them it might take me five minutes. When you go back later it will have added up and take longer. My adult daughter’s still have their on line orders shipped home. I have the worst habit of putting mail and pkg. on one end of my dining room table. It is my catch all.

  9. WOW! Thanks for including so many blogs. You were a beautiful bride. What a great photo. We always have a pic of our Mother and the bride, but never the Dad with his little girl!

  10. I have only just found your blog and can’t wait to see all you have assembled. I am so busy with several small jobs in the next two days, but then I will make that cup of tea and look at each and every page. Thank you for helping keep a gentile way of life alive.

  11. I love all the ideas, but my favorite is always table settings & vinyettes. I hope you’re having a wonderful day!

  12. So many pretty boogs to look at. My first take away is from Worthing Court – remember to add seasonal fabric to tray. Warms it right up

  13. Happy 33rd wedding anniversary to you and your sweet (but bashful) hubby Yvonne! We will also celebrate 33 years of marriage this month! We were married Aug. 6th, 1983….possibly the hottest day on the planet. Thanks for sharing so many wonderful things on your blog!

  14. Hi Yvonne! Everything you publish just inspires me like crazy! If I’m ever needing a little “pick me up” I go directly to your blog or your Pinterest page and drink in all the wonderful ideas you post and I become so much more positive and ready to take on the day! A million thank yous for doing what you do. You’re a treasure!
    Best wishes, Karen

  15. I just found this blog, and I’m in love with this style! I’ve been wanting to start a collection of tableware. You’ve inspired me!

  16. Creative piece . I learned a lot from the facts . Does someone know where my company would be able to get access to a sample Canada Form P version to type on ?
