Style Scouting: Vol. 196

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 am writing this post on Saturday morning while sitting outside on my lakeside deck on one of my favorite rockers. It is my favorite time of day. The weather could not be nicer – not too hot with no humidity. It is the type of morning I wish every summer morning could be like.

Soon enough the heat and humidity will begin in earnest which will keep me inside most days. When this happens I do tend to get more projects done around the house – this summer those projects are finishing up changes to my fireplace area in my living room and adding wallpaper in one of the guest rooms. I will share a sneak peek of each this week with you.

But for now after getting this post up, I may sit awhile longer to simply enjoy weekend relaxing. :-)

Now onto the links I found this week.
