Style Scouting: Vol. 52

Thanks for visiting my blog this week and coming to read my weekly Style Scouting post.

How did your week go?

After a lot of travel in the early summer, life has settled down and I like it. Uneventful feels good, at least for awhile.

Ed and I are heading to Kiawah in a few weeks. Once we get back from that trip, I know the blog world will be all about fall.

For now though…. it is all about inspiration and ideas…

Posts You May Have Missed This Week:

You can check out more of the kitchen, along with the designer’s portfolio.

Such a pretty backyard tour!

This home tour.

You know about using mix-matched china on a table, have you tried this?


Look what you can make with tin cans or even popsicle sticks.


As I was reading this post from Heather Bullard earlier this week I was nodding my head in agreement.


I always eat watermelon cold, but this has me wanting to try it hot.

I didn’t know you could do this with a bumper crop of tomatoes.

For all the bacon lovers out there.

  1. Really enjoyed today’s Style Scouting post. This weeks post included 3 of my (4 if I count you) favorite bloggers, Kate, Kelly and Heather. I’ve enjoyed Virgin River since the books–It’s hard for me not to pick apart the TV series, but it is refreshing to see a series that appeals to me. Thanks Diane for something to entertain me on this smoky Sunday.

      Thanks Mary – My blogging buddies – Kate and Kelly. Heather will always be my favorite as her blog was the first one I read 13 years ago. She inspired me to start my own. I watched Season 3 of Virgin River and was a little disappointed. I missed seeing Annette O’toole and it felt like every scene was rushed, there was no flow. I haven’t read the books, but I would like to. We have had the smoke and smell coming over the lake all week. It feel so bad for all those having to deal with the worst parts of the fires. I hope you are doing OK.
