Ocean Dreams

Shell-i-cious!
This time of year...I always start dreaming of a beach vacation.
If I came into a huge bunch of money....I'd do all the things 
I want to do to my little cottage and I'd buy a cottage by the ocean somewhere.
I wouldn't live there all the time...but I'd want it to go to any time I wished.
This cottage would do nicely!

A few shells on a silver tray is always good.

Love the painted paneled walls and that pink coral print in this room.
 via
A maiden hair fern is always so pretty....never thought to mix one with shells.

dreaming of the ocean

I feel like I'm totally missing this summer.
I don't like that feeling...that it's half gone and I haven't really done
anything summer like. 

But if I keep on track and work hard...perhaps by next year I can afford a week at the beach.
That would be nice... nice indeed.

Mod Mix Monday #159

I love how light and fresh that dining room is above 
Filling your fireplace with stacked wood is all the rage.
I just saw an article about Patrick Dempsey showing his Malibu home 
and he had a whole wall stacked with wood like that.
It was very cool.

My question is - doesn't that attract bugs?
I sure think it would. 

But I love all about that room above and the wood really balances the sweetness of all else.

I got last week's Mod Mix Monday up late so we had only a small number of entries.
But they were good! 
Here are my faves....
Cecilia of My Thrift Store Addiction shared her secret garden. 
 Mary of Orphans with Make Up shared this beauty.
Yep...she works wonders with paint.
Nicki of tshirt & jeans shared her wrapping skills.
Babies Breath makes the perfect topper for a gift. 
Who would have thought?
 
Darrielle of DD's Cottage is always coming up with a surprising creation.
This week's creation is just her style.
 Jan of Just Jan shared all the lovely hydrangeas drying around her home.

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...

Mod Mix Monday #158

Here we are with the Wednesday edition of Mod Mix Monday!
That is because it's taken me till Wednesday to post this.
That room above is so much fun....lots of flowers and color and I love the 
strand of shades as a chandelier.
Very inspiring as are many of last week's Mod Mix Monday participants.
Here are my faves....
 This was just about the saddest little dresser in the world till Jamie of 
So Much Better with Age made it over. 
 I just love the look of this cake from Suzanne at Simply Suzannes.
But I bet it tastes even better than it looks!
 Kim at Made in a Day made these super nice glass and rope lanterns.
Aren't they perfect for beach decor?
 Marijana of Macca shared her recently acquired feather collection.
Very pretty photos.
 Victoria of Dragonflies and Thistles shared her garden and patio.
Here's the patio updated with a new rug from Target. I think I better make a Target run myself.
Brittany aka The Rococo Roamer shared her favorite statement chair.
My friend, Vickie of Ranger 911 had a bang up 4th of July post in which she shared 
her Independence Day decor which included these new shades she made for the dining room.
She made long panels for the other windows. I am in love with that fabric! 
Way to go Vickie! I adore it all! 

I had a quiet 4th of July myself.
I went to a friend's house for a bar-b-que in the evening.
I didn't stay very long cause I had to be up early for work.

I hope all of you had a great one.
