Mod Mix Monday 25

Silver Christmas Wreath
This elegant sideboard and Christmas wreath amaze me.
What! A wreath created out of old silver plated trays?
And that sideboard was created out of an old bed head and foot board.
Again.... utter Genius....

I wonder if I could collect that many silver trays by next week?

Mod Mix Monday was awesome again last week...
René of Miss Gracie's House put together this wonderful girl's room
Such a lucky girl to have a room that looks like this. 
Love the color scheme...all the white plus bright pastels.
Bonnie of A Wee Meenit added warmth to her holiday creating a throw pillow out of 
a $3 cable knit sweater bought at a thrift shop and then made candle holder cozies with the sleeves.
B of B in Real Life decided with her Mother's urging that she had the perfect spot 
for a hutch but how to obtain a hutch without spending a fortune. 
She combined items she already had to make this very pretty display area in her home.
This one is a flash of brilliance. I first saw the post was about a vintage camera collection from
Carrie at Lovely Etc. but clicked and found it was so much more. I love the vintage black
and white cameras all lined up on the sideboard. 

Now on to this week....

You know the routine...link up below your Mod Mix's for this week.
Anything old redone to be new. Old mixed with new.
Anything new redone to look old.
Mix it up.

If you enjoy this party...I'd hope that you'd become a follower.
Please give me a link back in your post and be sure to link up to the exact 
post not your whole blog.
Please no food links or baby stuff or clothes. This needs to be decor and furniture related.
I'm going to start deleting links off subject.

Oh my lord I love that wreath and server! They really are genius! Nice features from last week, too. We have been so busy with horses and shopping that I have not been able to blog much lately. Such is the nature of the holidays!

Thanks for hosting MMM!!!

I can see that wreath of silver trays above my fireplace on a permanent basis. I bought my old house in a probate sale and discovered years later that there were things still hiding in the attic including lots of old mismatched serving pieces including silver trays. I love old silver, and what a great to display those old trays!
