Style Scouting: Vol. 169

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.


This week is Thanksgiving and I am ready. Now I have been trying to focus on getting the house ready and decorated for the Christmas season with my grandchildren in mind. I want to make the house as magical for them as I did for my daughters and as it always was for me growing up.

I want them to feel the magic in the air, but I do have space limitations as I need to keep surfaces clear as we will have two more adults with stuff – devices, etc. living with us for the month. This doesn’t include all the paraphernalia that comes along with a 4-1/2 year old and a 7 month old. :-)

Today I am going to add some holiday decor to the living room that I will post this week.

  • You know I love candles aglow around the house. This pair is perfect for my decorating style!
  • We use these for our outdoor gas grill. I had no idea you could use one to keep the bottom of your oven clean from spills.
  • We have one of these in our hallway. They are so much better than a night light for guests staying overnight or when walking to the bathroom at night.
