Style Scouting: Vol. 161

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.

heart shaped leaf

When I found this heart shaped leaf, I knew I had to share it as I know many of you are celebrating the arrival of fall along with me. Celebrating not only because the season starts the cozy season that we all love so much, but it means goodbye hot weather!!!

I began the season by making a big pot of the most delicious blended vegetable soup for dinner last night. I will share the recipe with you later in the week. It is so good, that even vegetable haters will love it!

So sad that the fall splendor of this area in Vermont is going to be closed to leaf peepers this year.

  1. Regarding the Vermont property that is closed to the public… it’s such a shame that we live in an era where getting best photo to share is more important than being in the moment..

      Hi Margaret – It is very sad. My sister is up there this week and saw the signs. She texted me yesterday and said exactly what you said.

  2. Kate @Centsational Style says:

    Oh thank you for the link to my little village, so appreciated! I always look forward to your weekend posts. Hope you are well my friend! xo

  3. The beautiful leaf would be a wonderful watercolor printable.

    1. I always enjoy the things you share! Tonight I saved the pizza slider and baklava recipes and ordered the PJ top and joggers you shared!
      Thanks for always sharing such a fun variety of things! Weather here in NC is going to be cooler this week, with highs in the middle 70s. :)

        Hi Wendy – Thank you for taking the time to tell me you enjoy my posts. :-) The PJ and jogger bottoms are so comfy. I am loving the cooler temps and getting cozy.

  4. Looking forward to the soup recipe!!!
    It’s cooler here now….high 90’s to low 100’s in AZ but in the mornings it’s low 70’s👏
    Feels great :). Thanks for all the links this week 🌺

  5. Werecently grilled figs indoors on my foreman type grill when I found myself with a carton but no family appreciated them fresh. Drizzle with honey and goat style cheese (we make vegan cheese with cashews). They were well appreciated.
    All your ideas are so beautiful and delicious especially this addition. Maybe I am excited for FALL.

      Thanks Laura – When the weather really turns, that is when I will get really excited for fall. :-) – No one in my family likes fresh figs either. I liked them since I was a kid. Nowadays I cut them up and blend them in the blender until smooth to make a fig paste. I freeze it into cubes and then use the cubes as a sweetener when making plant based treats for myself.

      1. Fabulous idea. Also I need to try to make fig/chia jam for Chartuterie boards. Yes plant based snacks!!

  6. Loved reading about the colonial home. I’ve been super interested lately in reading about Primitive American decor. It started last year on Pinterest when “primitive Xmas” caught my eye & I loved it. I’m Canadian, though my grandfather was American, and when my ancestry results came in recently, family is based on early settlers in Pennsylvania! I guess that’s I was naturally attracted to this very rustic style.

    1. I love that primitive American is beginning to come back too, Holly. Canadian, American, we’re both “North Americans” and have many shared pioneer roots!

  7. Bring on the Cluttercore❤️
