Mod Mix Monday 29

H a p p y     H o l i d a y s
Thank you so much for all your kind emails and comments in support of me at this sad time in my life.
I have read all and appreciate each and everyone of them.
I will be writing back to you as I can.
Shelly's Memorial is Tuesday afternoon.

I'm so sorry that Mod Mix Monday is coming out on Tuesday, I am doing the best I can.
I was at Target till 2:15 am Sunday night and just didn't have it in me to post.

I love that image above. I'd be doing good to have even something like that up.
I have not a single decoration up in my house. 

I feel so lame.

But there was so much great holiday stuff in last week's Mod Mix Monday.
I enjoyed looking at all your pretty homes and decor.

Here are my favorites...
Kristie Barnett has decked out her whole cottage to the hilt at The Decorologist.
You must take this tour.
Patty at A Few Pennies dressed her lady bust in Christmas finery for a few pennies. 
I love how classic yet modern this looks.
This is only one of the Twelve Doors of Christmas that Marie of Marie's Maison decorated 
for the holidays. You must see the rest!
Common Grounds' Debra has lots of lovely creamy white in her Christmas decor.
This entry is just the beginning. 
You know how I love white kitchens and there were two linked up in last week's party.
First, this one from Thistlewood Farm
So many things I like here...I wouldn't know where to start.
Another pretty white kitchen... Shannon of Fox Hollow Cottage showed off her white kitchen dressed for the holidays. Pretty...pretty...pretty.
I have mad crazy love for Theresa's new office at Momma T's Place.
I love turquoise and red together. Don't you?
Steve of An Urban Cottage did not link up last week.
But I just had to share his wonderful sparsely limbed Christmas tree.
Then a person could do a lot of fabulous Holiday party hosting with this 
vintage radio turned bar by Sherry of Pondered, Primed, Perfect.
And finally - little Rosie shows off the great tulip chair that her Mom and my friend
Cindi of OldBlackCatBoo
recently acquired. Cindi had a scare with Rosie last summer but she is doing super great now. 

That was a lot, wasn't it? But there were so many good things linked up last week.
I could have shown more. 

Link up below...

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 address 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.

I think you are doing amazing considering your crazy work schedule and your loss. I am in awe of you girl. Sending you a virtual hug and love.

Cindi Myers said...

Thank you for featuring my Tulip chair!(and my Rosie.) Seeing that photo on your blog makes me want to start working on it right away but I must wait until after the Holidays. I LOVE all your other picks, especially the white kitchens and THE perfect Christmas tree.
I've been thinking of you non-stop and worrying about you. My heart goes out to you. I send you positive and healing thoughts. You can get through this. You have all of us out here in blog land behind you, caring for you.
Love ya! XOXO - Cindi

It is good to see Mod Mix whenever you can get to it! I am thinking of you all the time, and know this has been an awful year. You are amazing Nita! You have three angels in heaven helping you now.
I can't wait to see the white kitchens on your features, they look so pretty. I did see the Decorologists home, so pretty too.

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

I'll be thinking about you this afternoon and throughout the holiday season. Peace and blessings to you Nita.

Love that ladder!! I have one used as a Christmas tree this year! Linking for first time - my fully blinged out Christmas house tour and my feather trees. Thanks.

Kristie at The Decorologist.com said...


Thank you for featuring my house tour in your "favorites" this week! I just linked up a Christmas tree that I created last week from stacks of books - hope you like :)

On another note, I am so very sorry to hear about your loss. May the peace of God comfort you in your sorrow this season.


Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

So sorry for your loss. You seem to have tremendous spirit and strength, which will get you through this rough time. I love all your choices this week. Thanks for hosting.

Theresa said...

Hi Nita,
You have been so kind to me, featuring my office and other projects this year. Thank you so much!
You are not lame for not getting decorations up this year, if I lived closer I would come and help you!
I have been thinking about you all week and am so sorry to hear about Shelly. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I pray that despite all of the sadness of the year, Christmas and the New Year brings you hope and peace,

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

You are doing so great Nita, you are really such a brave and strong woman. I hope you take a little time in the next few days to take care of yourself. Wish I lived close enough to bring you a hot meal :( Thinking of you alot this week, xoxo

Thank you so much for featuring my kitchen! That kitchen has seen many a party (not much cooking, but plenty of parties) LOL! I love your blog and thanks for hosting the party!



Shannon Fox said...

Nita you are not lame. That you can even function is a testament to your strength! You are a strong, resilient woman. It’s only décor. Short of making you feel better and maybe cheering you up, it’s not important. There is always another holiday around the corner anyway ;) Please know that there are so many people thinking of you. Sending you strength and love =) Shannon

I feel so privileged to be included among your features with our radio cabinet mini bar. Thank you so much for deeming us worthy of sharing. Love your party and happy to be back sharing again. Have a very Merry Christmas, my friend.

Thank you, Nita, for taking the time to do this. I know that sometimes grief can just leave you feeling like you are in limbo..and I know that you are trying to move through that. Don't worry about not decorating this year- there is next year waiting for you in all the boxes you have stored away. xo Diana
