Hi friends! Welcome to 


This is me....

As you can see I am recuperating from double knee cap surgery. The good news in NO MORE CRACKLING KNEES... the sorta bad news is that it's taking a village to run my life right now!

Thanks for all your well-wishes, prayers, love, cards, flowers, help, meals and support!

I'm on the mend!


Welcome back to The Scoop
The weekly linky party featuring the scoop on the best posts from around the web!

And now we are excited because we are bringing you another blog tour and this time we are giving you "the Scoop" on creating a handmade Christmas! A group of 25 talented bloggers will inspire you with lots of wonderful Christmas ideas so that you can create your own handmade holiday!

 I am so excited to be guest hosting The Scoop #94 with this amazing group of inspiring ladies!  I've been a long time follower of this party even before the name change!
I just had the pleasure of participating in the very first The Scoop on Creating Fall Vignettes.  I will also be in the upcoming The Scoop on a Handmade Christmas. Exciting!!!
Let's get to all the fun! There is just so much eye candy here this week that I am blown away! It was quite the challenge to pick just a few from The Scoop #93! You are a creative group!

 It's not too late to plan a fabulous Thanksgiving tablescape! From the amazing view to the beautiful linens, I am just smitten with what Mary from Home is Where the Boat Is has created. Note to self....be on the look out for a neutral, plaid throw!

Easy DIY Large Reclaimed Wood Sign at thehappyhousie

I am loving signs right now.  Making your own is such an affordable way to decorate your home. Krista from The Happy Housie has a great, easy to follow tutorial. The entire TV vignette area is fab!

Cindy from DIY Beautify has inspired me in a big way!  Her Piano Room Reveal on a budget is full of ideas and inspiration. Aren't those slip-covered chairs beautiful? I am now ready to try my hand at sewing slip covers! Thanks, Cindy!

I love to cook and this looks so yummy! I am all about one-dish meals during the school year. I know my family will love this pasta dish from Nici from Posed Perfection.


 I have been wanting to make these for a while from our old sweaters. Diane from An Extraordinary Day has a wonderful tutorial. The one pictured here is just beautiful! Use your own old sweaters or go check out your local thrift store!
Hosting The Scoop was such fun! Thanks for all of your wonderful ideas and for linking up! I'd love for you to visit me at Our Southern Home. I'll be sharing lots of holiday inspiration on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. Come join me as we celebrate the upcoming holiday season. I wish you all a beautiful Thanksgiving!

Thanks so much for joining us, Christy!
