Style Scouting: Vol. 108

Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Style Scouting. My Sunday post where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me that I found online.

It’s the Labor Day weekend. Are you doing anything special?

Ed and I are just hanging out. It has been hot, but the evenings have been very nice with a balmy breeze and a bright moon shining on the lake. I have been enjoying that the most since I am such a water and moon loving person.

If I had a sleeping porch, I would be sleeping outside every night.

Do you remember when Labor Day was all about “the cookout”? I have such fond memories of these.

The smell of charcoal in the air, family and friends all around and an abundance of delicious pot-luck style served food. Ed and I have used a gas grill since we met… I do miss that charcoal grilling smell. Maybe I will smell some wafting by from a neighboring home when outside today or tomorrow.

Whatever your weekend holds, I hope it is wonderful.

This pretty home decorated for fall. I don’t have any amber glass, but after seeing how this blogger displays hers, I think I need to find some. So far this is keeping me happy and these in the amber glass fall decor category.

Now THIS is one very cool casa. Make sure to notice the pool.

The yellow and white checkerboard floor throughout this home looks perfect.

Such a pretty fall table setting.

I love the island in this kitchen remodel. I added it to my kitchen dreams file.

This cottage checks all my boxes.


This works well. Save money and make your own dish soap with no chemicals.

A great idea if you have a stand-a-lone refrigerator in your kitchen.

Give a faux pumpkin a new look with a kitchen staple.


When you need a cake for a chocolate and peanut butter lover.

Another delicious way to use the zukes from your garden.

For the next time you make potatoes. A nice presentation for when you entertain.

I want to wear this very affordable fall jacket to a football game. Or maybe this one. I can’t decide. Both come in all sizes.

    I am so excited about the white shelving with pegs on the bead board wall on the Elenor Rose site! I have been wanting this type of shelving for years above my buffet cabinet in the breakfast room, but did not have the inspiration design for it…. till now. otherwise, winging it could like an amateurish attempt. I am refinishing a low cabinet for the spot, and the bead board is high, So This one is perfect! THANK YOU

      Hi Doris – I am so happy to hear that you found the perfect inspiration on Elenor Rose’s site that you have been looking for your breakfast roomshelving. She has such a nice style. Thanks for reading.

  2. Hi Diane! Thank you so much for sharing my neutral fall decor blog post!!! I enjoyed reading your weekly round up and can’t wait to check out the rest of your website!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Thanks Heidi – If you ever have any questions about anything you find or read, don’t hesitate to ask.

  3. I look forward to these every Sunday & I always learn something new & interesting & dream a little. I adore the checkerboard floor! That would be really pretty in a porch too. Some of those homes look more like resorts worth in the millions, but fun to look just the same.

  4. What a lovely collection you’ve pulled together this week! I too love amber bottles and added a few of the Target bottles to my fall decor. I have a favorite thrifted amber vase, always on the look out for amber accessories. Too bad that candle wasn’t in stock, or it would have been in my shopping cart too! Love that cabin in Minnesota. I could live there if the winters were just a tad warmer.

      Hi Deanna – When I gather the links that are for a product during the week, they are still in stock, but popular stuff can sell out in hours. :-(. I have missed out on lots, but sometimes if I go to the store like Target or Walmart – I find the item. So there is still hope if you really like the candle and have a Target near you.

      I saw Dr. Gross this week. He was great and I think I will be going ahead with him. Thanks for telling me about him and what he does. I never would have know. Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend. XO

  5. Thank you for your Style Scouting posts! I can only imagine how much time you put into them so someone like me can sit in pajamas on a Sunday morning and indulge. Enjoy your week and don’t work too hard for all of us (although we appreciate it).

      Thank you Nancy – So happy to read that you enjoy a little Sunday morning indulge. I know I also like reading posts like this to find new inspiration. When creating posts, Style Scouting is very easy since I don’t have to shop for supplies, make something, photograph and then edit each, then write the tutorial and post. :-). Blogging is the best career I ever had, so no complaints, but it can be a lot of work at times. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

  6. Thanks for sharing these fun finds this week. Can’t wait to try the reeses cake and potatoes in muffin tin…genius. Have a wonderful labor day!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Hope – Happy to hear that you enjoyed this week’s links. :-) Enjoy the rest of the labor day weekend whatever you have in store.

    What defines a sleeping porch to you?
    Enjoy all your post!

      Hi Nan – At my grandmothers house there was one. A screened in porch on the side of the house with simple beds set up to use in the summer months. There was no view, but it was cool and I always slept so well in the fresh air. I would love a screened in porch with a big swing bed on ropes. :-)
