Hi there! I'm Julie and I blog at Lilacs & Longhorns.
I'm so happy to be here guest-hosting at the Scoop today!
I'm a farmhouse and cottage-loving, Northern girl living in Texas with my native-Texan husband and children. I blog about my love for all things home including decorating, DIY, cooking and gardening.
I hope you'll stop on by my blog to see how I incorporate my loves with the tastes and styles of everyone in my family!
When the hosts of The Scoop asked me to be a guest co-host, I was thrilled! But, honestly, it's a tough job narrowing down all of the great projects to just a few. I'm sure I don't have to tell you that there is a lot of talent in blog-land. You all are amazing! But, narrow it down I must, so here are my faves this week:I love the breakfast room changes at Back Porch Musings.
I've been considering painting the chairs in my kitchen different colors for awhile and her fun chairs and gorgeous farm table have just about tipped me over the scales in favor of painting. I love this room! Click on over to her blog to see her gorgeous hutch filled with plates. This chalky-painted French script desk from Knick of Time Interiors is not only gorgeous, but a cute black cat is posing perfectly for the picture, too -- love the desk and the kitty!
You'll have to click on the link to see what this piece was before it became a desk. Oh, and if you like chalky-type paint, you'll want to read about what type of paint she used to transform this piece. Sticking with the black cat theme...I love these cute little DIY black cats and pumpkin by Our Clover House.
Check out the full tutorial at Clover House. It looks so easy I think I might give it a try -- I love DIY projects that are easy and inexpensive! From simple and small to big and impressive -- check out this DIY built-in bookcase at Home is Where My Heart is:
This project looks so amazing -- can you believe it's DIY? They can come to my house and build me a wall unit any time. I have the perfect place in mind! Finally, I love a good pumpkin recipe, so this easy pumpkin muffin recipe from Craft Dictator caught my eye. It calls for TWO ingredients -- how easy is that?!
Thank you ladies, for inviting me to co-host your party! I've had a blast being here!Now, I believe it's time to do some linking up..
