Mod Mix Monday #81

Snowy Showy Shelves

I don't know what the original source of this photo is... if anyone knows...let me know.
I have loved this image forever.
I usually don't like rough natural wood that much...but when it's right...it's right.
And everything about this room is right.
Of course I love the huge aqua blue hutch with snow trim and shelves full of white china.
Normally, I'd like a painted table but this one is so perfect and in just the perfect color of wood.
Love the lighter colored wood chairs too.
Anyone know where this image comes from?
I'd love to know.

Lots of good Christmas decor in last week's Mod Mix Monday.
Here we go with my favorites....
Restoration Redoux shared her little putz village. She has some great ones...doesn't she?
I'm so jealous.
Denise of Bella Dreams added some Merry Christmas to her collection of 
brown transferware and ironstone. 
I'm alway amazed when brown works at Christmas.
It's the addition of lots of white and a little sparkle and vintage baubles.

Melissa of Daisy Mae Belle rocked the brown Christmas look too.
Hmmmm...perhaps I need to ditch all my pastels and bring in the brown.
I am loving this so much....and that is what I loved about this week's inspiration photo too.
Laura of Cottage and Broome did some super cute, super easy and super fast decorating.
I'm not really into canning jars in decor but look how cute this is!
She put an ornament in one jar and an old Christmas card in another on a silver tray 
and added some greens and candy canes and it's darling!
Custom Comforts is peppermint crazy...she made very very cute Christmas accessories using 
peppermints and a few things from the Dollar Store. 
Cute and Tasty
Betsy of Betsy Speert's Blog really scored with some beautiful antique 
pieces she found at an auction. She repaired this piece and painted it gray.

I just love seeing everyone's Christmas stuff, don't you?
Right now...I must get back in my living room to finish up my own decorating.

That whole room is just beautiful. Has a welcoming feel to it. Like you, I much prefer painted furniture but every now and then, a piece or two of natural furniture color is just what the room needs for the grounding effect.

I hope it's ok to add food to your link party. If not, please let me know....and thanks for being such a loyal host each week.

Thank you so much Nita. I love my brown and just have to make it work with every season so I don't have to move it! That aqua dining room piece is GORGEOUS.
