Mod Mix Monday #99

Sweet Tweet Wallpaper
Oh...my wallpaper with sweet little parakeets all over it and roses and butterflies too!
Isn't that the prettiest? But it's fun too.
Love just about everything in that photo above.
It's so relaxed but pretty and special.

I went crazy picking favorites from last week's Mod Mix Monday.
I really did try not to pick too many but there were so many I loved.
I have a lot to show here today...and I'm not even showing all the ones I was nuts for.

Let's get started...shall we?
First, Christine at Little Brags took something as simple as a clearance lantern 
and made it much better with just a little paint.
But the lantern is not the only reason I'm showing this vignette. 
She linked up her big basket bedside table a few weeks ago and I loved it then too...
with the old gate behind it. 
It's just a nice way to do the whole bedside thing in a totally different way.
Martha Leone Design is always showing up here.
This is a really great mid century tallboy dresser painted in a wonderful shade of yellow.
But I have to say her child's painting on top is the perfect accessory.
Jean Selep loaded her hutch down with gorgeous vintage floral china.
Love the layers and layers of china..mixed with bunnies for spring.
Of course the wall color and the chandi are very nice too.
Beth at Make Me Pretty Again took an old 1960's television cabinet, painted 
and stained it in a great way. 
I used to think old tv cabinets were the worst of the worst...but this makes me want one. 
Doesn't it you?
Who doesn't love a wondrous kitchen make over? And this one is wondrous!
Erin of It's A Wannabe Decorator's Life painted her wood stained cabinets 
and put in new tile and countertops and this is what she has now. 
Oh...new appliances added to the effect also.
It's so fabulous...oh...I want.
Andrea of Cottage and Broome filled her kitchen window with these bright rustic pots of succulents.
Margaret of River Run Antiques and Crafts painted this vintage dresser 
with Miss Mustard Seed paint and let it do what it likes to do. 
I love how it chipped in a way that showed off the fancy details.
Ok, lastly...I could not resist these two!
Tea in Texas has a lovely post about blue bonnets and a pretty table setting
and taking photos of her dogs. But I just had to share these two. One still a baby. 

I almost adopted a collie once...
I still think about her and wish I had.

Share your Mod Mixes for this week below.
Remember anything old made over to be new...anything new changed up to look old.
New and old together...
