Mod Mix Monday #135

Vintage sofa in an unexpected fabric makes for an interesting open to the kitchen 
living room look. 
I love how casual, open and quirky that kitchen is above.
I always admire this look but then I always go more traditional in my own home.
But oh...if I were just starting out in an apartment...this is probably how I'd decorate.

Which reminds me...I really need to find photos from my old apartments and share 
how I used to decorate before being in my house. 

I'll do that one day soon.

Here are my favorites from Mod Mix Monday last week!
 Natalie of Sette Design shared her done over art studio.
I have to say I am so jealous! What a pretty space be creative in!
 Michele of Sew Sweet Vintage made all these cute personalized snowman mugs!
Aren't they fun?
 Minnesota Junker made these calendar poles. I didn't know there was such a thing as a calendar pole.
Now I think I need a calendar pole!
 Angela of Number Fifty Three got a new rug from Rugs USA and rearranged the room around it.
I had to show her little photo bomber - Figgy!
I flipped for these candlesticks made from old glass vases made up by
How many of you have lots of these lying around the house?
Ok, I don't....but I bet my Mom has 30 of these if she has one. 
I can just imagine these done up in pastel colors...cause you know I love me some pastels!

On to this week's Mod Mix Monday...
I promise I'm going to kick myself into gear and get some things done myself. 
I took a little breaky break but it's time to get things done.

Let's see what you've gotten done lately....
Link up below!

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