Laura Langworthy loves to spend Christmas with her children!
And what mother wouldn't in this beautiful home in Connecticut?
Have you seen this past issue of Traditional Home? My all time favorite magazine! It features this beautiful home of Kimberly and Marc Blair and Kimberly's wonderfully, talented mother! Just look at this Christmas inspired home!
"Over the hills and through the woods, to "Nonnies" house we go! If only my kids could sing this song…we might all be a glow!" Oh, wait..that's not how the song goes, now is it?
However, if my mom was a well known designer like Laura Langworthy then I would probably be BEGGING her to not only spend Christmas with us but to also spend those normal, every day..'DAYS' with us! There is nothing more fun than helping your children decorate and dream about their own homes!
We had such a great time with Holly and Brad and their precious home in New Orleans…you can see it HERE!
It brings back wonderful memories of how exciting it used to be when I was young and trying to create a home for my family!
You can see Laura's website HERE! Take a look see..I promise you won't be disappointed!
The rooms that Traditional Home featured in this article of Laura's creations are spectacular…I know in my heart that Kimberly and Marc are thrilled with the results!
Just look at the details in the sunroom, and on the pillows…and just in the planter itself with the beautiful Holly in this arrangement!
And in the beautiful wrapping of Christmas gifts...
This vignette may be my most favorite in the whole house! I am so drawn to it…the Bobbin chair which appears to be an antique…I wish I knew..the fabric on it…the tiny Christmas tree on the beautiful antique table!! I love it all! It's a PERFECT vignette in my opinion! It has that American Antique feel to it and that is my all time first love…bet you didn't know that!
and then there's this…the perfect addition of mercury and greenery…just the right amount of detail at Christmas time! I love it!! It truly is these perfect little gems that make up the whole picture!
Have you ever? This engraved sterling silver matchbox engraved "Christmas 1888" and used by Laura as a locket is phenomenal! I wish I would think of putting out these sort of family heirlooms that make up our lives! We have so many things like this that just sit in drawers that we don't take seriously…in fact, in our family I feel like we take them for granted! This article in Traditional Home has inspired me greatly!
Not to just get my act together at Christmas Time…but to remember exactly where I came from!
This mother may love beauty at Christmas…and love "Putting On The Ritz" when it comes to Holiday Entertaining….but this mother also knows exactly when to put her foot down!
"What If" I just did it?
I hope you are enjoying every minute of this upcoming Holiday Season! What a joy it truly is! Let's all vow to not get side tracked by too many unrealistic expectations and also vow to remember exactly why we celebrate this wonderful holiday called Christmas!
The real "What If" would be just that…."What If We Really Enjoyed Christmas?"
I enjoy each and every one of your blogs so very much and they give me something to look forward to each time I get on here to see what you've been up to! Thank you for all that you share!
