Mod Mix Monday #178

Whew! Are you partied out yet? Seems over the past month it's just one party after another.
We've still got one more to go....New Year's Eve.
I'm going to a co-workers house to celebrate. 
I LOVE my new co-workers! 
I always love the people I work with but I have lots in common with this new group.
It's been a long time since I got to work with a bunch of other creative types and 
I like it!
I once worked with five other graphic designers a long time ago and oh....we had fun together.
So it's nice to be around people that get it that it's important for things to be pretty.

I wrote last about my Christmas Eve. It was a busy but enjoyable day.
By the way...my face did eventually peel from the jalapeno peppers on my hands.
As one reader pointed out...it's cheaper than a professional peel!
true, so true

Christmas Day was full of food and family.
We all met at my friend Shannon's house. 
We had a day of snacks and Christmas Dinner around 6.
We took it slow...watched Christmas movies, visited and I might have had margaritas.
But Mom did not know.

I don't know about you...but I'm ready to get back on track with house projects 
and ignore holidays for awhile.

There were many good things in last weeks Mod Mix...here we go!
 I am way jealous over this one. Diana or Adirondack Girl at Heart found these pale blue ice skates 
at a garage sale for $1. The blue shovel for 50 cents! She put them together with a vintage sled
she'd also thrifted awhile ago for just the best Holiday Vignette. I love it so!
Nancy of Nancy's Daily Dish sets a might amazing table for any time of year...but this is an especially pretty Christmas table. I really love the way she decked out her chandelier.  
Vickie of Ranger 911 added this super cute sign to her kitchen for Christmas/ 
I adore this little village Vickie (Ranger 911) set up inside a terrarium.
Darrielle of DD's Cottage shared her house all done up for Christmas.
So much good Christmas to see at her house. I love her buffet all decked out.
 And of course Darrielle has another wonderful makeover that I'm including this week.
If you think the outside looks good....you must....see....
 the inside!
Isn't that special! 
 Do you have special Christmas dishes? I think they are a must.
That said...somehow I DON'T have special Christmas dishes. 
I do not know how this has happened. 
I better get on that.
I've never seen that pattern before shown above.
I love the way the table is a mix of things and isn't it festive!
Pam of Everyday Living created this gorgeous table.
 There were so many lovely images from Mary Alice's Christmas Tour over at 
Chateau Chic...I had a hard time deciding which image to show.
This is another....Chateau Chic
What better way to end than with that furry little bunny from Christine at Little Brags.
Love the decor too! 

Please join in this week's Mod Mix Monday!

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

So glad you're enjoying your work associates -- it makes the day go faster, doesn't it? I'm "hearing" a spring in your voice that's been absent for awhile, which pleases me. Here's to a happy and successful and creative 2015!

I LOVE this post SO MUCH!
Of course you have some great picks, as always but what I love is how your words have a different tone. You sound HAPPY!
One of my Christmas wishes apparently has come true!
You deserve it my friend.
You've had more than your share of "not so happy".

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

Thanks so much for the features, Nita! And thanks for taking the time to host Mod Mix Monday throughout the year. I'm so happy you've got a fun creative work crew. I worked with a group like that for almost 20 years before a restructure by the company. I still miss the camaraderie and fun outings we had together. It looks like your year is going to start on a good note. Happy New Year!
