Welcome to THE SCOOP #101

What a great week... first the Scoop is sharing the best ideas on the web... then check out CREATING A COZY HOME TOUR...25 bloggers sharing ways to create a cozy home this winter...

and this week at StoneGable I'm sharing all things winter and cozy too! So there are lots of creative and inspiring posts to see!

Let's get going with THE SCOOP #101...


Where is it 4 degrees one day and rainy and 70 degrees 4 days later?
In Eastern North Carolina.
The land of "if you don't like the weather, wait until tomorrow."

Hi Everyone!
This is Barb with The Everyday Home and I am
happy to be your Co-Host this week.


I sure hope everyone is experimenting a Winter thaw now.
Unfortunately, I'm afraid that the worst may still be ahead of us.
So, I thought you would love to get some ideas for
cozying up your home for Winter.
25 Fabulous Bloggers will be sharing their
"Cozy and Warm" ideas all this week.

Head on over to Confessions of a Plate Addict to see
the full schedule and Monday's projects.

I can't wait to share my "Cozy Home" project with you this Friday.
I've just completed some major "No-Cost" furniture changes in my
home in an effort to create a warmer and welcoming setting.
Until then... I would like to introduce you to one of my very dear
friends - Amy at Atta Girl Says. If you don't follow Amy's
blog, you have NO idea what you are missing.
She's a DIY/Craft/Recipe Diva...and I just adore her.
So...take it away Amy!

Amy of Atta Girl Says

Hi, I'm Amy from the blog Atta Girl Says, where I share ideas to make
your home brighter and your heart lighter. I'm very excited to be
hosting The Scoop this week!
This is Scoop #101, and in college a 101 level class is usually an
introductory one. So, what better excuse to introduce myself and
my blog to you.

Atta Girl Says
Crafty, sassy and irreverent, and just a little bit frazzled, I'm a
"recovering" journalist, a "tarnished" Southern belle living in
North Carolina and mother to the sweetest little boy ever.

Creativity keeps me up at night ‚ and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I started my blog nearly two years ago to nurture my creativity and
to encourage other women to do the same. I'm a cook, crafter,
furniture painter, decorator and consummate dabbler in all things domestic.
Here are a few of my recent projects:

Moroccan Preserved Lemon Recipe

Lego Table with Storage: Tips for Organizing and Storing Legos

How to Style a Vintage Bar Cart

Fire Crackers Easy Party Food Recipe

I loved looking through all the links from last week's Scoop.
The tough part was picking projects to feature. There's so much
wonderful inspiration in this party every week.

Like these hanging globe terrariums from Town-N-Country Living,
Succulents are easy to grow, and I think we could all use a little
green as we deal with these polar vortex temperatures!

As a furniture painter, I fell in love this this Swedish Gustavian paint treatment
I Meeshu U created using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. It is simply
gorgeous, and what a transformation.

I didn't make any specific New Year's resolutions this year,
but getting and staying organized is always a goal of mine. I love,
love, love how Bohemian Junktion has organized her craft supplies.
What a find that rotating bin was.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and these
Valentine's gift boxes from Cowboy's Daughter Designs are a
sweet way to say I love you.

My 1929 Charmer has created quite the winter wonderland with
this lovely vignette on her buffet.
