Style Scouting: Vol. 160

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.

Yay! Hallelujah! Finally…. it has been in the low 80’s, clear with no humidity the past two days.

I can honestly say that when I was out walking early Friday morning, I wished I had a jacket on. Ed rolled his eyes at me when I told him that since he never feels the need to put on a cozy jacket or sweater when the weather starts to get cooler.

What I really enjoy about the cooler temps though is that we were able to open up the house after it being closed up with the AC on all summer. Feeling the breeze from the lake coming through the doors and windows – bliss! Being able to do this is why I love fall so much!!! Oh and of course, pumpkins.

How about you? Do you love being able to open up your house to let the fresh air in?

Something to Think About

These are so sweet. As someone whose family has been impacted by pediatric cancer, seeing this put a big smile on my face. If I were one of the players, I would want the original framed in my house.

      Hi Linda – Thanks for thinking of her – my granddaughter. She is almost finished her 2 year treatment. She gets to ring the bell at the hospital where she has been being treated in November. We will be celebrating. :-)

  2. Yes, those sweet kids are budding artists, they did a great job depicting all the Giant’s players. As a long time SF Giant fan, Buster Posey and his family have a wonderful foundation…BP28… They have raised so much for Pediatric Cancer. Also, I’m your granddaughter is doing well.

      Hi again Linda – I will check out the BP29 Foundation. Thanks for telling me about it.

  3. The 90s house shopping … the only thing they missed were carpeted bathrooms and kitchens. Hysterical!

    And Inspired by Charm was all in on fall. Loved it.
