Style Scouting: Vol. 69

This Post May Contain Affiliate Links. Please Read my Disclosure Policy.

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.

Thanksgiving is a few days away. Are you hosting it at your house this year? After last year, it will feel nice to have a traditional Thanksgiving day celebration with family and/or friends.

Ed and I will be heading to Virginia to our daughter Mandy’s house that she recently bought. It is her first house. It will also be her first time hosting our family Thanksgiving.

I am looking forward to it, but will miss not seeing my older daughter, Kelly, son-in-law and granddaughter Zoe who live in California. Thank goodness for Google Duo and Facetime so we can at least be together on a video call.

Then over the rest of the holiday weekend, we are going to help Mandy get a few home improvement and decorating projects checked off her “to-do” list.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving! I enjoyed the link to the barndo. We built ours about 3 years ago. It’s not as grand as those posted but we love it. Most comfy home I’ve ever owned. High ceilings low maintenance and everyone loves it.

    1. Hi Paula – I am on my way to Cville as I type this. Ed is driving and I am using the down time to get caught up on replying to blog comments.I always enjoy visiting and getting to explore Cville and go to the Farmer’s Market to stock up on fresh produce and sourdough bread that I can’t get in SC.
      A few weeks ago, we walked the Rivanna Trail (spelling?) and had coffee at a new place that was along the trail. It was very nice. I can’t remember the name of it though. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your mom.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving, Diane!

    I hope you will share some of the projects that you will do with Mandy’s new house! I’m sure they will be great!!!

    1. Thanks Jennifer – I do plan to share some of the projects that Ed and I help Mandy do to add her style to her house. She is excited and has already painted a few rooms. Since your email says Ottawa – I am assuming your are Canadian – hence I hope you already had a Happy Thanksgiving.:-)
