Mod Mix Monday #148

I'm all about spring decorating at the moment. 
That room above just screams spring!
Open the windows...hear the birds sing and enjoy the fresh spring air.
So...I'm all about spring but have not done much about it,
I've been too busy with the new job but 
I have two days off in the middle of the week and hope to get some projects knocked out.
One of which includes painting the dining room.
I know...that's a big one...but do-able.

I might be too busy with work but my readers are busy getting things done.
Let's take a look at my favorites from last week's Mod Mix Monday.
 I'm a sucker for this type of buffet. I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again, I can't get enough of them.
Orphans With Make Up painted this one in Paris Grey which really accentuates her beauty.
 Shabby Love gathered some newly acquired vintage items and displayed them on her mantel.
They have a great sculptural quality. Love that it's all black, gray and shades of white and cream.
 I adore this dresser! Love the color and the way it's painted.
It's another lovely creation at Trois Petites Filles.
A delightful kitchen makeover from The Sideways House caught my eye. 
It's mostly paint and ingenuity that makes this kitchen charming.
The chalkboard wall adds some drama. Touches of stainless make the room feel fresh.
I think they did a fantastic job!
 Sette Design painted a tired little chair and now it's all modern and cool!

Now let's have a little Easter...
I'm afraid I'm not going to put up any Easter decor this year.
I'm just too busy with starting the new job.
And this week I could either decorate for Easter or paint the dining room.
I'm going to go with painting the dining room.

But look at what other's have been up to in the Easter department.
 Simply Suzannes cooked up these sparkly Easter sugar cookies.
She has some other great ideas too...you'll want to check out her other ideas.
Super sweet this bunny silhouette is from Restoration Redoux.
And who doesn't love deviled eggs for Easter.
Old Things New tells you how to make these colorful ones.
I actually have Easter off from work so perhaps I can make a batch of these.

Share your Mod Mix's in this week's party below.

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

Hi Nita! Thanks for hosting your party for us even though you are busy with your new job. Hope it is going well. I thought about you when I got out my little lambs that I bought at Pier One last year.
