Style Scouting: Vol. 142

This Post May Contain Affiliate Links. Please Read my Disclosure Policy.

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.

Happy Sunday!

I got a lot done this past week as I was home alone.  Ed is out in Los Angeles where I am heading this week. Grandbaby #2 is going to be born soon. :-)

Upcoming on the blog, I will be sharing a new DIY decor project that I made. I also completed another project, but I may not post it as I don’t think there will be another homeowner on the planet that will have a need to do this.

But maybe I will post about it just to show you what you can create when your have a need and a vision that is totally customized for your specific situation – so stay tuned.

And… To all of you who are mothers, grandmothers, or aunties that nurture and care for the children in your life. Happy Mother’s Day. You can read how the origins of the celebrated day began, here.
