Welcome to this week’s Style Scouting, where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me.

We’ve lost an hour today which makes for a shorter day, but come dinnertime, I will smile when I am able to see the sun setting over the lake as I chop and prepare dinner. Bye-bye living in the dark.

It has been a little quiet on the blog this week.


After Ed and I went to visit to celebrate our younger daughter’s birthday and hang out with her sister, son-in-law and granddaughter, we both got sick.

I came home with the cold and now Ed has it. No fun, but not Coronavirus, just an awful head cold that won’t quit.


We were all about color coordinating all weekend long… from pink to teal.

What Has Inspired This Week…

You have! You are my inspiration for what I post on the blog. Thank you so much for all your comments and feedback about the video tour of my home that I posted last week. Seems it was a hit. Now that I know you liked it, I will be doing more going forward.

Many of you commented that you enjoyed hearing my voice. Last summer when Bona refinished the flooring in my kitchen and living room, they made a video. When I published the post, the video wasn’t ready. I updated the post a few weeks later. If you haven’t seen it, there is a short interview with me. You can see it midway through this post: Bona Flooring Interview With Me

Having one of these elevates even the simplest item. I use it on top of a cake plate on my kitchen counter.

Now that spring will be here shortly I am searching for a few cute casual short-sleeve tops to wear. I like wearing pink and blue shirts. The colors go well with my hair. This reminds me of a shirt I loved and wore all the time back in the 80’s.

Now that I am feeling better, I hope to show you what we have been doing up in the guest rooms by the end of the week. The project was easier than I thought and both rooms look so much better.
