Style Scouting: Vol. 77

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.

Posts You May Have Missed This Week:

I had planned to get a decorating post up this past week, but I focused my time on something I have been wanting to do for my blog for a very long time.

With all the recent backend updates on the blogging framework I use, I was finally able to do it myself with little technical knowledge.

I couldn’t be happier to finally have a SHOP page on only one page here on the blog. Previously readers had to click back and forth between many blog pages to find different items categorized by the rooms in my house to find items they were interested in.

New Shop page on blog

Now everything is all on one page that you can simply scroll through. :-)

If you are a blogger and interested in how I finally got this done – let me know – the block editor makes it so easy.


What a cheery and colorful home.

This is a great looking piece of furniture. I like the look so much, that I even DIY’ed an existing chest of drawers to resemble it.


Enjoying this website and her show on the Magnolia channel.

This bathroom before and after.


A great idea for all your devices that need charging.

Home Improvement

Even if you are not thinking about changing the exterior of your home, this blog all about exterior design is very inspiring.

Have you heard of these? I think gardeners will like them and also wonder if they stop bees from drilling holes in deck wood around your home.


These look yummy.

Baby it’s cold outside. This soup will warm you right up.

Just like fashion and decor… food follows trends and this recipe is becoming very popular once again.

Breakfast never looked so good.

Fashion & Beauty

Warm & cozy and looks great paired with leggings.

Fun & Interesting

A Valentine for your computer.

Some very interesting historical photos in this post. I like the one that shows the photographer who took the iconic photo of construction workers eating lunch on the beams when the Empire State building in NYC was being built. And Iranian women in the early 1970’s – I had no idea.

Engineering feats like this truly amaze me.

Did you hear the White House has a new kitty named Willow. Named after Jill Biden’s hometown of Willow Grove, PA. Which just happens to be my hometown also. :-)

Something to Think About

Not so great new on the cooking front.

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” – Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

  1. Enjoyed the post of beautiful houses and especially the 50 photos. I realize that everyone that reads your post is not vegan therefore, you posts various recipes. However, as someone trying hard to eat as vegan as possible, I find myself unsure on some recipes if I should be eating them or not. Unthought, i can’t imagine ever eating a sausage, I do realize there are vegan sausages available. Is it possible that you could somehow mark the recipes as to whether they truly are vegan. I hope I have explained myself so you understand what I am trying to say.

      Hi Nancy – I will get the recipes that are Vegan marked, but in the meantime – all the recipes under the category – WFPB are all Vegan. A few may use Chocolate Chips, but they are marked to use the dairy-free chips. All the recipes under the Recipes category – are all not vegan. So when looking for recipes on my site – stay under the WFPB category.

  2. Enjoyed your links Diane. My son in law is an iron worker and takes some pretty scary pictures.
    Love Jean Stoffer. You may want to check out Heidi Cailler’s work as well.

      Hi Suzanne – Thanks – I will check out Heidi Callier.

  3. Hi Diane,

    Quick question, do you know how to make a “story board”, you know, where you can design a room with different things? I want to try to design my master bedroom and have come across a couple apps, but nothing like what I’m looking for. Just thought I’d ask.

    Thank you, enjoy your Sunday

      Hi Debbie – I use Photoshop Elements to make collages and storyboards of images. Have you looked into Canva? I think you can create just about anything on the site and it is pretty easy to learn.

    Hi Diane, I don’t think the bee brick would help with the carpenter bees attacking wood around your deck. The brick is to help our pollinators survive and thrive with a place to call home! The fat, round boring bees probably wouldn’t fit in there and I wouldn’t want to encourage them to hang around, anyway! Take care of yourself and stay warm and well…

      Hi Linda – Thanks for taking the time to explain more about the bee bricks. I guess a gardener may want them, but not most of us. :-)
