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.
Today Ed and I are heading home from a week spent on the South Carolina coast to get our ocean fix for the summer, as well as to celebrate Ed’s 67th birthday.
The weather was hot, but on the beach there was always a breeze and the water was delightful, both in temp and clarity. It was so clear – almost like the Caribbean. We spend many hours simply bopping up and down on the gentle swells that rarely broke into waves.
Getting away on relaxing vacations always renews me, but at the same time allows me to see what I miss about my day-to-day life. As the Frank Sinatra song lyrics go… “It is always so nice to go traveling, but oh so nice to come home.”

Is that really worth it?
If you read the news lately you are sure to know that this weekend was the opening for two big movies at the box office – Barbie (cute, pop-culture) and Oppenheimer (scientific and a bit scary). Someone very clever made a movie trailer that includes them both called Barbenheimer.
And speaking of Barbie. What Barbie looked liked the decade you were born. I had the original and then the “Twist and Turn Barbie“. If you enjoy all things Barbie, Go to Google, type in Barbie the movie, and hit enter. As of 7/21/23, you should see pink starbursts, and your screen will turn pink.

Something to Think About
The new happy – Not small at all.
This is IMPORTANT: If you love reading blogs, please consider supporting a campaign that matters to both content creators and readers. I’ve spent the last 14 of years creating and sharing DIY, decor and creative ideas with you that I hope you’ve come to trust and value.
Creators/bloggers like me who share their projects on the internet are becoming increasingly concerned that non-human content AI – artificial intelligence is going to flood the internet, crowding out the quality work so many of us do with so much love and care.
If you enjoy reading blogs, bloggers could use your support – it will make a huge difference. Since the birth of AI no one has been able to show how much followers and readers care about quality content—that they don’t want cheap, soulless content to flood the internet and that they want to have confidence that the content they’re enjoying is created by a human they know and trust.
If you love the content you find on your favorite blogs, please consider lending your support to an open letter urging big tech and AI companies to consider the needs of creators as we shape the future of the
internet. You can visit ProtectContentCreators.com to learn more and sign your name to keep the web human. Thank you for reading. XO
