Mod Mix Monday #172

 via
Are you ready for Halloween? 
I'm not. 
It just has not happened for me this year. I've had to accept that.
It's just not going to be this year. 
I can't get my outside decorations out of the garage cause I can't get the garage door open
and I didn't get anything done in the house.
I'll just move on and go straight to Christmas. 
You won't hate me for that, will you?
I just didn't have it in me.
But I wish I had a display going on like that one above.
It's glorious! Can a Halloween display be glorious?
I think so.

So here are my faves from the last time I did a Mod Mix Monday which has been two weeks ago.
Sorry about that. 
Vicky of If It Were Mine always shows houses that need some help.
She takes them room by room and shares photos of how the rooms could look if they were her's.
This photo is how she would redo the kitchen of the old house in her post.
I love this vintage kitchen!
Pam of Everyday Living puts together some amazing tablescapes.
Like this one under the arbor at her home.
 
Pam did this one too for her son's wedding!
Wonderful, isn't it?
 This one I really love.
Kyla of House of Hipsters took some store bought candles with not so pretty labels
and designed and printed some of her own with her own name on it.
Aren't they much more upscale? 
I need to do this...cause I often buy cheapish candles with ugly labels.
 Marium of Decorative Vintage scored that great vintage painting above.
But check out her awesome card catalog too. All of this looks so perfect together.
Priscilla took us on a tour of her home all decked out for Halloween. 
I'm a big fan of her chalkboard.
 Spooky little glittered raven cookies by Simply Suzanne's.
Darling!

Even thought I'm not celebrating Halloween this year...I'd love to see what you are doing.
Link it up!

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...

Open House Sunday

I hate to say it but I'm not sure where I found this house.
I saved it in a folder but now the link to it has gone bad.
I thought this New York City brownstone made for a nice house to show as we near Halloween.
It's all greys and whites and black.
That collection of mirrors on a white brick wall is very nice mixed with the globe pendants.

I love that this house is just a mix of neutrals. It's very sharp. 
I could never limit myself this much. But I love how this place looks.
Well, I love all of this but the deer head. I know they are in style but I will never embrace them.
Oh...I'd embrace this kitchen though....I'd dance with it all night.
Cozy child's bed
Simple and yet striking bathroom.
I think those portraits above the bed are too spooky.
Nothing spooky about this closet though.
The clothing is even all neutrals! She must have hidden her colorful clothing for this photo shoot.
