Welcome back to THE SCOOP! We are so glad you are with us this week. I’m starting to celebrate spring a little early here at StoneGable because we are experiencing some very mild weather recently! Weather in the high 60’s makes me want to break out the spring decor and dig in the dirt!  In other news, today on our podcast Decorating Tips and Tricks we are talking about choosing the perfect paint colors for your home. It’s taken me decades to figure out the right way to choose paint colors. Hear about our favorite colors and how you can find the best colors for your home too!

Welcome to The Scoop!


We are:
Yvonne from StoneGable
and Suzy from Worthing Court
Your host this week is Suzy from Worthing Court.
Hello, everyone!  With temps in the 70’s this past week (and forecasted for the same this week), here in NC, spring is definitely in the air!  I just hope that it lasts and that we don’t get a freeze that kills all of the tender new buds on the trees.  This warm, sunny weather had me pulling down all of my winter decorations and talking about spring all week long on Worthing Court.  Is it unseasonably warm where you are?
Before we move on, don’t forget to leave a comment on ANY blog post this month to automatically be entered to win my February Reader Appreciation giveaway for a $100 Magnolia Market gift card.  Every comment counts as one entry, so more comments = more chances to win!
