A great big vintage junk bar cart to get the party started for the New Year.
It is that time....time to start a new year....or almost anyway.
the reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
Yes, I've been gone for so long some of you worried something was seriously wrong.
I just had too much going on with trying to get ready for Christmas and working and
I got a serious cold and flu too.
I'm still sniffling but much better.
It was all I could do to put one foot in front of the other for a few days there.
Posting seemed impossible.
I could go on and on about how my holiday was.
It was weird.
I tried to make it the best but it just turned out strange.
I was going to tell you all about it...but it might be better left unsaid.
I did get to spend it with my Mom although it was rushed, I was sick and it was weird.
Mom didn't care. She is a trooper.
We'll try again next year.
I could talk quite a bit about my observance of how people were acting this Christmas.
I'm afraid I'd sound quite a bit like Charlie Brown talking about the over commercialization of it and all.
I will say....sales at the store were slow...and people were in a bad mood but as
soon as the holiday was over...sales were brisk and people were in a very good mood.
What does this say?
Before Christmas I'd decided that everyone was in a bad mood because they were having
to spend money on others and not themselves.
I'm afraid what I've noticed after has confirmed my hypothesis.
People were unhappy and mean before Christmas because they were buying for others and
People were happy after Christmas because they were spending money on themselves.
I hate to say it but I'm glad its all over.
I'm very tired.
I even thought about quitting blogging.
But you know what?
The only place that things are really perfect in my life is here on this darn blog.
So....let's get this party started!!!!
Here are my favorites from the last time I held Mod Mix Monday!
Laurel of The North End Loft finished her kitchen remodel.
It's so lovely. Open and airy and they kept all the vintage details.
Over at Home Coming they finished their master bedroom.
It's so fresh and modern!
Look what Karen of Somewhat Quirky Design came up with for Christmas.
A Christmas tree made of stacked light globes!
Karen by the way is an old sorority sister of mine. We reconnected this past summer
after not seeing each other since college. She wrote me one day and said...
"I think I was a Delta Zeta with you."
Yep, we were sleazy DZ's together. small world
Karen of Elderberry Street shared her Christmas Home Tour.
I fell in love with this little corner. It's everything Christmas should be.
Ok, I am in love with this image. It invokes the perfect Christmas by the Sea and it comes
via Mary of Boogie Board Cottage. It's so divine.
Mary also made this wonderful lampshade for one of her lamps this Christmas.
I feel better already...back in the groove.
Time to start thinking about projects to do in the next year.
Let's look at what your up to now.

Remember anything old made over to be new...anything new changed up to look old.
New and old together...
