Style Scouting: Vol. 31

Before I get to this week’s links to all things I found inspiring online this week, I wanted to say thank you to everyone for the nice comments and emails you left me. XO They lifted my spirits quite a bit.

I am feeling much better and looking forward to feeling like myself again.

After explaining what I have been going through the past few weeks via my newsletter to my blog subscribers, I realized that readers who don’t get the newsletter had no idea what all the well-wishes in the comment section of my last post titled: Do I Have a Secret About Decorating were all about. :-)

Since that post was about a decorating subject, I didn’t want to include personal stuff, so I wrote about what was going on in my life in my newsletter.

For readers that don’t subscribe who read the comments in the post wondered if they missed a post, you didn’t. In a nutshell – I have been dealing with a hip problem and going to PT. I cut the tip of my left index finger off while cutting kale and got Shingles for a second time even having had the shot.

Dealing with one of these can be stressful, but 3 at the same time has left me a little out of sorts.

Thank you for your thoughts and kind words sent my way. XO :-)

  3. So good to hear you’re feeling better. Netflix choices are very personalized but here are some I’ve enjoyed (some are old series): Bridgerton, Reign, Grace & Frankie, Sweet Magnolias, Heartland, Sweet Magnolias, Virgin River, The Crown, The Kominsky Method, Emily in Paris, Firefly Lane, Anne with an ‘E”, The Big Flower Fight, Schitt’s Creek, Outlander (of course) and a bunch of cooking shows. As you can guess many of these are aimed at female viewers.

  4. Love all the ideas …. and, I need something new to watch too. If you have seen Outlander, you’re in for a treat.

    1. Hi Linda – When choosing what to watch on Netflix or Prime it is like getting lost down a rabbit hole until you find something you like. Recommendations are the best way to save time. :-) I have watched Outlander – so good. Recently, I was watching an older TV show and there was the actor who plays Jamie – as a young teen. I recognized him right away. I don’t remember what the show was, just see the actor much younger made me smile.
