Style Scouting: Vol. 120 – In My Own Style

Style Scouting: Vol. 120 – In My Own Style

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.

How is your Thanksgiving holiday weekend going so far? I hope you have been enjoying it with family and friends.

Ed and I had a quiet, but enjoyable few days getting to hang out with our younger daughter, Mandy. We watched movies, had casual dinners at home, ate out one night, went to a Christmas concert and took a holiday river walk.

It was warm here in SC so kayaking was also on the agenda. Not for me though, I am one month post hip replacement and moving around well, but getting into a kayak may take a little more time. 🙂

Today it is back to work for me. I am going to begin to get the house ready for a Christmas Home Tour on Thursday this week. I also will be sharing something my daughter made while she was staying with us the last four days. I loved what she made and think you will too – so stay tuned.

DIY

A nice gift to make where you can use an old frame and leftover fabric you may have from a previous project.

Look what you can do with a wire coat hanger that dry cleaner clothes are hung on.

I am a big fan of using jingle bells in my Christmas decor and love this idea.

Fun & Interesting

What two things made red and green popular Christmas colors?

Answer: Holly and Coca-Cola. While the tradition of red and green holly dates back to Roman winter solstice celebrations, the Coca-Cola company also played a role. The soda makers popularized the plump and jolly red-suit-wearing Santa in an ad in 1931 that made using red and green at Christmas become a color scheme.

Something to Think About
