The Scoop Link Party-Decor and so much more!

Welcome back To the weekly linky party that features the scoop on the best posts from around the web!

The Scoop

More exposure + less time = win win!  

    We are 
Anita from Cedar Hill Ranch,
Linsey from Farmhouse Porch,
Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict
and introducing
Anne of White Lace Cottage.

Hello once again!! And welcome to another Scoop Link Party! And if you are new to my blog The Farmhouse Porch... welcome to YOU too! Today we will actually visit a porch. But not just any porch. It is a porch I hold very near and dear to my heart . My parents' porch!! Many happy memories have happened here. I thought you might like to see it. 

My mom took an old boring chandelier and added all kinds of cool stuff to it. Every time I go to visit she has some artsy new project to show me and we constantly bounce creative ideas off of each other. The acorn does not fall far from the tree. 

If you turn around on the porch and peek inside you can catch a glimpse of the living room.

Only 91 degrees...this is downright chilly for a Fort Worth summer day!

Another view down the length of the porch. My daughters were rocked in that porch swing many many hours during the baby years...

And if you turn to the right there is a seating area made out of custom wood benches that can all be moved together to form an outdoor bed. It was all sorts of crazy when I took this picture. Kids in swimsuits, dogs wanting to play frisbee, and mom scooting around me while I tried to snap pics as she cleaned up after us! Sure, we could have spruced it up and set the table and "staged" it (for about 3 seconds until the herd of ankle biters came tearing through), but I wanted you to see it as we live. Mop handle and all. :D

I hope you enjoyed this very short little porch tour!
Now let's get this Scoop Party started baby!

Here are just a sampling of the features that sparkled at last week's party! 

I pinned the heck outta this one. If you have a borderline obsession (like me) for adorable guest cottages you need to visit this one, by Fairhope Supply Co.

Lovin' this shabby beachy cabinet-scape by Walnut and Vine!

 Oh man, I've always wanted an old enamel bread bin! This blue one is pretty is lovely. Shared by Sweet Pernilla of Swedish Corner Down Under

I have to admit that I am GREEN with ENVY for this old truck. Keep the rolls, I'll roll in this! Linda of White Weathered lucky thing you! :D

I liked how paint and a few easy changes transformed this kitchen area into a clean updated space by At The Farmhouse

Thank you Cynthia Weber for the Triangle design concept explanation!!! I found this very interesting, and as others commented, found myself looking at my home vignettes for triangles. Fun!

What wonderful memories you have and are still making on your mom's porch! We found out our home used to have a front porch too. It's on the north side which would be perfect shade on hot summer days. Someday we want to add one back onto this old farmhouse.

Thanks for the party. Love the features!

Hi girls, it's Jessica Riddle again!! Lol!! I just wanted to let you know that I copied your "Tuesdays the Scoop" party blog button, and when I pasted it on my blog, it was NOT the same picture as the the one I was coping!! It was the "Tuesdays Cowgirl" button!! However, I tried it one more time, making sure To get the "Tuesdays Scoop" button, but got the cowgirl one again!! So, the cowgirl button is the one I have and left on my post that's linked to you!! If you could email me when you guys get it fixed and let me know, because I would really like your new pretty button, I would really appreciate it!! Thanks girls, and my email is!! -- Jess
