Modern Cottage Christmas
I love the way this room is decorated for Christmas. The tree covered in beaded snowflakes.
The simple decorations in neutrals and pastels really compliment the white paneled wall.
The mix of green and pastels looks so fresh.
This week's favorites of Mod Mix Monday is mostly filled with Christmas.
That is what we are all working on...isn't it?
Vickie of Ranger 911 put together this cute Christmas vignette and it all started with
that little transistor radio.
Tricia of Little Cottage on the Pond showed off all her Christmas decor.
I was especially smitten with the above image but it's all pretty.
I just loved the simplicity of the above decoration.Curtains in My Trees.
Revived by Delia painted a little bedside table in a great shade of milk paint.
Upcycled Treasures made these great little wood slice ornaments
and shows how you can too!
Custom Comforts created a knock off of a Pottery Barn pillow design with great success!
She used bits and pieces she had around the house too.
Paper Daisy Designs made this wonderful chalkboard banner to display in her tree!
Here we are the last week before Christmas.
I'm no where near ready.
I've been at work every day.
The girls at work have been coming to me and complaining about how rude and mean and irritable
the shoppers are.
I have noticed that customers are not as pleasant at Christmas as they are the rest of the year.
I always say to the other girls..."Amateurs!"
"The amateurs are out!"
But that is not entirely true.
It occurred to me tonight what is really going on.
When people are shopping for themselves they are all happy.
They are high on the thrill of finding something for themselves that they want.
At Christmas the difference is...they are not happy about buying for others.
I just figured this out.
They come in the store and just want to get the chore over.
They don't want to buy for others...they'd rather buy for themselves but they have this "List"
they have to buy for.
I really think that is what is going on...
because I've noticed the people that are in buying for themselves
are all happy
but the ones that have come in looking for gifts are abrupt, grumpy and in a hurry.
What does this say about our society?
It does not say anything good.
I don't think it used to be this way.
I think everyone has gotten so used to getting what they want all the time that we've become
a very selfish society that becomes irritated
and can't handle putting others first for even just a few weeks a year.
That is just my observation any way.
Now on to what we are all here for link up below.
Remember anything old made over to be new...anything new changed up to look old.
New and old together...
