Style Scouting: Vol. 48

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 hope this post finds you happy and enjoying the summer so far. Upcoming on the blog this week I will be sharing something I did in my foyer and showing you something new that was delivered last week for the deck.

Ed and I have been enjoying it every night.

It is also my birthday this week. I will be turning 62.

I may take the day off to do some bookstore browsing. It is one of my favorite pastimes that I don’t get to do much of it any more. It will be a treat to be able to spend a few hours and come home inspired with new ideas for all aspects of my life.

  1. Diane, it looks like your old classmate designed that house for you! It’s the perfect blend of white and wood with fun pops of color. Are you sure it’s not yours?

  2. Happiest of birthdays, Diane! I hope you enjoy your special day. You deserve it. Thanks for always providing us with so much inspiration. Browsing a bookstore sounds divine :)

    Easy to read and understand!! Thanks

  4. Have a fun birthday Diane!
    Your previous post on the kitchen counter really inspired me. Some changes are being made, much needed, and some in the works. My husband is motivated about this also. We downsized and moved here 1 1/2 years ago and we never really got everything organized the way we wanted. Your post helped us look at things with a fresh eye and an open mind.

  5. Happiest of Birthdays to you! Enjoy this birthday week!

      Thanks Gail. XO

  6. Happy Birthday, Diane. Aren’t you proud of yourself knowing you are living your best life at the young age of 63. I’m also working on decluttering my closet after losing 19 pounds so far. Can you tell me what a flax egg is? Hope you have a wonderful birthday!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Nancy – Thanks for the birthday wishes. A Flax egg is one way to replace an egg in backing and cooking. To make one – Mix 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds with 3 Tbsp. water – whisk and let thicken for about 5 minutes. This will replace one egg.

  7. Have a blessed happy birthday.

  8. Have a wonderful birthday 🥳
    Glad you’re going to do something you love!!!

    Yeah for 1959 how did we get here so fast! You LOOK GREAT!

      Thanks Marian – That is nice to hear at any time, but especially after the age of 50. 1959 was a very good year! :-)
