Style Scouting: Vol. 182

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.

Hello March! Spring is only 17 days away. :-). I enjoy the coziness of the house during Winter, but am ready to be able to open windows and let the fresh air in.

This time of year – the end of February into March always brings travel to my life (sounds like a horoscope) :-) and this year is no different. I am on my way home from Virginia after spending a few days with my daughter, Mandy, Matt (her boyfriend) and her cute dog, Lolly.

We shopped, watched movies, walked and ate at quite a few delicious restaurants in Charlottesville, VA. Next it is off to Florida and then out to Los Angeles to celebrate my granddaughter turning 5!

But even with all the travel, I am still working on a few colorful projects that I will be posting soon. One is small, the other big.

Now onto the links I found this week.
