I normally post my weekend Style Scouting posts on Sunday, but I have a project post that I am very excited to share with you on Monday.
I like to space my posts out with at least a day in between. So this is an early edition of my weekend’s Style Scouting post. A round-up of the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me this past week.
Before I get to the links, I wanted to thank all of you for the nice comments you left me about my updated blog photo in my blog’s sidebar. I was hesitant to to add a new photo of myself since I am not thrilled with having Vitiligo, but I have come to terms with it and am working with a dermatologist to lighten, lessen and stop it from spreading.

I never have seen this house before. Have you?
Not sure if I am a fan of this design trend. How about you?
Decorating in your own style should always be the goal…. even if it means removing something that many would find beautiful just as it is.
Have a staircase in your home? This is great post on many ways to hang art on the staircase wall.
I love the smell of lemons – so fresh and clean. I made a batch of this earlier today. Only 3 ingredients that worked better than a store bought household product, plus no chemicals!
How to make your bed so it looks like it is from a Pottery Barn catalog. Hint… size up!
How much fun would it be to win this!
Things to keep in mind as you are cleaning and organizing this month. The benefits of minimal living.

I never knew such a product existed. Doesn’t look very safe, but it’s a very popular item.
One of those really good tips you never knew about when reheating things like rice in the microwave.
Fun new vocabulary I learned this week:
Boomeritis: I have it in my right hip! Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Nicholas DiNubile coined the term “boomeritis” to describe the wear, tear, vulnerabilities, and injuries that baby boomers are experiencing as a result of lifelong commitments to staying active on their aging frames. In many cases, repeated stress on the knee can lead to osteoarthritis. Motion is lotion.
Manslipping: I have witnessed this many times when out and about and it is always older men doing it. Never women. Interesting phenomenon. :-)
