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.
I have seen the first signs of summer’s end as the kids went back to school this week. On my morning walk it made me smile to see little kids standing on their front porches with a placard stating what grade they are entering.
So cute with their new clothes and colorful backpacks. Soon fall will be knocking on the door and I am ready to greet it with open arms. How about you?
I love summer, but I love the feel of starting fresh that September brings us. After taking the summer in the slow lane, I am eager to get back at it, but before I do, I needed to clear the clutter around my house – mostly in closets. I have taken two trips to the local thrift store as well as two trips to the town dump.
I also started on clearing out the one side of my studioffice. We are giving it a new function that I mentioned a while back. So stay tuned for more about what we are doing.
Now onto the inspiring links I found this week.

I know dark colors are trending in decor, but not sure I am on board with this paint color being a color for next year. What do your think?
If you have celebrated your birthday already this year, try this: Add your age and the year you were born together. It should equal 2023. It works every year as long as you have celebrated your birthday. Crazy, right? Makes you think more about the mystery of numbers.
Something to Think About
