Hello SWEET friends!!
This month is flying by for me, and I’m sure you are probably saying the same thing. I admit I used to be that person you hated who had her Christmas shopping done by Dec 1. But this year, I’ve barely started. We’re hosting my daughter’s English class for a Christmas party this week, so I still have to get that in gear. I am so glad I gave up on perfection long ago.
I hope you didn’t miss my post on
Simple and natural is my motto this year. Nothing to store all year, and not much to buy.
I know I’ve said this before, but I also want to tell you just how much I appreciate you visiting my blog. There are so many fabulous blogs out there, and the fact that you took time to visit mine… well it’s make me so happy. Now onto this week’s scoop.
Welcome back to The Scoop
best posts from around the web!

I love the calm of that morning and the bustle of family coming home in the afternoon and going to a candlelit service in the evening, and giving all the kids (who are way too grown up, but oh well) their night-before-Christmas-pajamas under the lit tree and staying up late to watch It’s A Wonderful Life with my hubby, Bobby! Yes, Christmas Eve has been my favorite day of the year for decades!
Make sure you stop by StoneGable this week for all the fun Christmas posts!
I’m so thrilled to introduce our guest host this week… the talented Kristen from
SOPHIA’S DECORKristen has a beautiful blog, filled with gorgeous images and lots and lots of creative and brilliant ideas.
SOPHIA’S DECOR is loaded with ways to live and create beautifully without spending a fortune… it only looks like she did! I have been following SOPHIA’S DECOR since it started and I always leave so inspired! I hope you will too!
Now let’s meet Kristen…
I’m a farm girl from Washington State and now a mother to three girls. I started re-habbing/painting furniture and selling my creations and vintage goods at local shows about seven years ago, but began blogging about two years ago after relocating to North Carolina. I blog about decorating on a budget as well as sharing furniture painting tips to jewelry-making. I’d love to have you stop by and say “hello”!It’s getting closer to Christmas and if you are still looking for decorating or baking ideas, there is so much inspiration and talent out there.
Next up, these adorable Gingerbread Cookie Trees from Maria at Shopgirl make me want to get baking! What a creative way to use a set of stacking star cookie cutters!
It’s been fun being part of “The Scoop” this week! It’s been an honor to select features from such talent!
