Mod Mix Monday #177

I adore the paint finish on the walls in this obviously old house.
The simplicity of the tree is refreshing. 
Speaking of a simple tree....mine is very simple. 
Right now it only has lights on it and that may be as far as it gets this year.
Or I might decorate it on Christmas Eve...since that might be the first chance I have to finish.
 Mary of Orphans with Makeup painted a buffet I admire very much.
But I love the way she styled this shot too. A perfect mix of natural and vintage.
Victoria at Trois Petites Filles painted a fabulous dresser and made it even more fabulous!
 Nicki of Tshirt and Jeans shared her Holiday decorations and I'm in love with 
this strand of shiny brite ornaments drooped across a map.
Su at Butterfly and Bungalow created the loveliest of Christmas decor in her home this year.
I'd like to sit for hours in that room above. It's so calm and dear.  
I'm in love with Mallori's dining room of Vintage Finds.
Love the brick wall with the rustic bits of white furniture and can we talk about those lamps?
I'm really loving those lamps. I've been wanting to do different lamps on my buffet and perhaps
I need something like these. 
 Jamie at So Much Better with Age gave us a tour of her home all 
done up for Christmas. There were many vignettes I loved but this 
tree built out of urns was a fave. 
Her living room is such a serenely decorated room too with everything in neutrals and white.
Darrielle of DD's Cottage and Design did another magical transformation.
You must see the before...it was hideous! 
I think that photo of the little boxwood wreath against the painted blue rustic surface 
is just about perfect. 

 Jody of Southern Seazons created the perfect spot to enjoy this joyful season on her front porch. 
I was so inspired by this...I went hunting or my own plaid blanket for my porch.
 Pamela of Pennsylvania French shared her fireplace.
It is very french, isn't it?
Just look at Cathy's super cute mantel over at Vintage Paint and More!
 Ok, now we all know where the Sugar Plum Fairy lives at Christmas. 
She lives at Penny's Vintage Home. This is just a whirlwind of sweet Christmas confection.
Cecilia of My Thrift store Addiction has a wonderful tour of her home all 
decked for Christmas. Of course I love this silver serving dish loaded with vintage ornaments.

Open House Sunday

Today's Open House is the Tulsa, Oklahoma Cabin vacation home of the late Charles Faudree.
 
Charles and one of his beloved Spaniels.
This cabin was added on to several times...roof lines raised and walls pushed out. 
 A charming spot overlooking the water.
 I'm in love with the rustic white wash of it all.
 The kitchen is a bit cluttered with useless stuff for my taste but it is pretty.


 Notice the sweet primitive portrait above the fireplace and the village below.
 This is truly cabin living at it's finest.
 A lovely spot for a Christmas Eve toddy.
 I love the way he used blues throughout this home. 

Charles was a true talent in the design world, wasn't he?

Read all about his cabin here.

Mod Mix Monday #176

 via
Is this not the cutest Christmas tree Ever?
10 little white shelves dressed up for the holidays.
Just the Cutest!
Many pretty Christmas things going on in Blogland and a lot of it was linked up here
last week.
(oh...and my tree is on its way...I'm tracking it and it may be here in a couple of days)
yippee!!!
 I am over the Christmas Moon about this. A big old ironstone urn filled with 
green vintage bottle brush trees! Isn't it fantastic?
This created by Diana aka Adirondack Girl @ Heart
Kim at Made In a Day whipped up these delightful yarn trees and wreath.
It's precious. 
 Darrielle of DD's Cottage is doing an aqua, green and white Christmas this year.
I'm loving her mantel. Loving how the mantel is so casually draped with greenery and baubles.
It's so casually elegant.
Mariaelena of Cottage Living from Beach to Burbs ripped out a wall and 
created a beautiful pass through complete with detailed molding. 
Amy of Maison Decor has started her Christmas decorating. 
The dining room is all set.
 Victoria of Trois Petites Filles decked the halls in her little girls' room.
The room is just simple and elegant and her girls are the very prettiest things themselves.
