Mod Mix Monday #89

I really love this room.
It's just fun. Old fashion furniture and white walls.
Look at the top of the coffee table....a wood pallet with a pretty serious base.
Love the painted floor too.
And I can't resist a vintage globe...I've got one but I want more.
Stacks of books and suitcases.
That electrical gadget on the wall is neat too.
I don't think this is actually a real living room because I see tags on things...so it must be a shop.
But it makes a great living room.

So many good things in last week's Mod Mix Monday, I hardly know where to start.

First, I can't seem to get over Valentine's Day.
I'm still enjoying my display so I thought I'd share a couple I loved.

Family Home and Life created this cute Valentine bouquet.
She painted the vase and then added paper cut outs of hearts.
It's charming.
I can never resist one of Debra's displays from Common Ground.
She always does the best ones and this is no exception.
Shabby Love took a beat up little table and turned it into a delightful desk corner. 
All of this is so nice together.
La Maison Jolie made a bud vase out of a plank of wood and test tubes.
It's perfect in her dining room.
Erin of Erin's Art and Gardens painted her stone fireplace with great success.
It looks so good in her home now. The perfect cottage fireplace.
Picked and Painted painted this dresser in pink ombré. 
Oh...how I want to paint a dresser like 
this for myself. I just don't have the dresser....yet.
This is just the prettiest thing.

Yep...good things...weren't they?

Share your Mod Mixes for this week below.

Hi Nita. I have to say that the painted fireplace stole my heart, especially with those giant pinecones at the hearth.
