Style Scouting: Vol. 96

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.

Summer is in full swing around my house, from the weather to hosting family and friends we haven’t seen in awhile.

The last two years with the pandemic altering vacations and travel for many, our house was so quiet. Now with the ease up of restrictions, the Henkler Hacienda has been a hopping hotel. :-)

Soon after someone leaves, another one arrives. It is so nice to finally see and catch up with the family and friends.

Enjoying the visits with everyone however takes away from creating new blog posts.

I am excited though to do a makeover on something I found on Friday at my local thrift store. I was not sure if I was going to go, but the shop is only open on Friday afternoons, so I decided to go as you just never know what you will find.

I am so glad I went, because even before getting out of my car I spotted something I have been looking for outside the shop.

As the saying goes…. the thrill of the hunt. :-)

Stay tuned for what I found.

    Regarding the home improvement shows, I found I was watching them obsessively, and then I found my sense of discontent growing – my home just didn’t live up to the image. When I did get estimates for a minor remodel I was SHOCKED that they were so high compared to what I was seeing on the shows until I realized that the shows were unrealistic in budget, timeline, expectations. I still watch these programs from time to time, one can find ideas to use or adapt. I choose to find peace and pleasure and remember the many blessings in my life.
