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.

  1. Always enjoy your posts, thank you. Regarding Martha’s kitchen – she has a staff of many to keep all of that copper looking tip-top; no thanks, I seem to have other things to do with my time. My copper is limited to a couple of Moscow Mule mugs!

  2. Paula@SweetPea says:

    Thank you so much for including my pillow post this week!

    1. Hi Paula – I loved that you painted your pillow – so smart and perfect for an outdoor pillow that gets abuse from the elements. So happy to share it with my readers. :-)

  3. Brenda Pruitt says:

    About the throw pillows, I used to just buy the throw pillows. But like you say, then you have to store them all. So now I buy the pillow covers and in an apartment, so much easier to store them!

  4. Carol Heartfelt Whimsies says:

    Love your Sunday shares, Diane! Paula at Sweet Pea (pillow painting) was my sister’s college roommate! Small world!

    1. Hi Carol – That is such a coincidence. When I first starting blogging, one reader figured out that my husband and hers where childhood friends, even though neither of them lived in the same area anymore. Small world for sure. :-)

  5. Thankyou Diane for making these posts so interesting, I always look forward to reading and browsing.xx

  6. Hope you had a relaxing vacation. I read the book that you recommended this week. I think it was called “The Last Thing He Said To Me” but can’t be sure since i’ve already returned it to the library. It was a good book. Thanks for the recommendation. Enjoyed this blog post with all the beautiful homes.

    1. Hi Nancy – So glad you enjoyed the book. I have to get my reading list updated as I read the last few I had on our vacation. As always – thanks for reading my blog.

  7. My daughter lives in Kaysville Utah so I shared the IG post about the ‘little things add up’ in case she know anyone in the post. How cool!!
