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 :-)

Ed and I will watch the last two episodes of Longmire on Netflix tonight and I am already sad that we have watched the whole series and it had to end. :-( Are you watching anything good lately on Netflix or Prime. I could use some recommendations.

  1. Completely forgot to mention Netflix, Virgin River! and Emily in Paris was a fun romp, Good Girls (which is on NBC but the seasons air on Netflix after), Call the Midwife, and last but totally not least: Outlander, a Starz series based upon the wonderful books by Diana Gabaldon, but Netflix airs each season after it premiers on Starz. She is a consultant on the series, it’s well done given the time constraints and telling an epic story on the small screen. It isn’t necessary to read the books, this is stand alone series, but oh glory! The books are magnificent, Diana Gabaldon writes prose that reads like poetry. Her books take years of research and are the only ones I’ve read multiple times and still come across a line that I didn’t remember the first 5 times I read one of the books.

    1. Hi Crystal – Thank you for the Netflix recommendations. :-) I have watched Outlander and really enjoyed it. Virgin River is really good. I can’t wait for Season 3. I will check out the others this week and put them on my list.

  2. There are so many good TV series on now, it’s hard to suggest just one. I loved Longmire. Justified was another and even better I thought. Hell On Wheels (Netflix) is really good. Also Netflix, The Last Kingdom, Ozark, Grace and Frankie, and on Amazon, Bosch (based upon the book series by Connelly), Goliath, and we really enjoyed Jack Ryan. The most talked about TV series however, with over 7 million viewers is Yellowstone on Paramount, starring Kevin Costner. It’s deliciously wicked but fair warning, lots of bad language. Hope you enjoy some of these and report back on which are your favorites.

    1. Thanks again Crystal for the all the Netflix recommendations. Will add these to my list also. Since you mentioned you thought Justified was better than Longmire, I think I will start with that.

  3. I just finished the first Season of Last Tango in Halifax and it was so very good! It’s a drama but with such interesting characters. I was hooked from the first episode.

  4. Netflix recommendation: Call the Midwife. It is MUCH better and with a much higher degree of content than the title might imply. Certainly not a “woman’s only” show to enjoy.
    Also, The Dig.

    1. Hi Linda – Thanks for the show recommendations. I have seen both of these and really enjoyed them. Another reader mentioned if I like Call The Midwife, to check out Bramwell on Prime. Some of the actors are in both series.
