Christmas Home Tour 2012


Dear Friends,

As I write this, my grandsons are assembling Lego kits a few feet away,

and my favorite cookbooks are sitting on the dining table so I can make one of my 6:00 am grocery shopping trips to HEB tomorrow morning.

I have tamales to pick up at Delia’s at noon tomorrow

and a cookie baking session with my grandsons after that.

I know my father will stop by often to sit and watch the action.

These are the things that feed my soul in this quirky home

I love so much.

Welcome and Merry Christmas!

Everything is gorgeous, Laura. LOVE those monograms! I ordered them for my girls and sister for Christmas. Have a blessed Christmas week, xoxo!

Just had to write and say I not only enjoyed your Christmas house tour but I also looked at your Christmas 2011 and loved it. And I was charmed to read your defense of Martha (not Stewart) last December! I've always empathized with Martha. Lovely blog.

Your home looks so festive! Each one of your Christmas trees is so pretty but my favorite is the beauty in your den.:) Thanks for the tour! Merry Christmas, Miss Laura!

Laura I love everything about your home from the welcoming front door to the beautiful living and dining areas. So gorgeous.

Merry Christmas.

The only thing better than seeing your beautiful home dressed for Christmas would be seeing me dressed for coffee in your sitting area. Make it so #1 in 2013!
Merry Christmas sweet friend. Give those babies a hug from me...and give your daddy a kiss and squeeze while you're at it. Tell him it's from just one of his many, many secret admirers.

Beautiful! I loved visiting with you and I can smell something yummy cooking:) Love it that your Dad stops by, enjoy that for me too! Have a blessed day dear Laura, HUGS!

Does not sound quirky - Sounds like getting a home ready for the Holidays. Your decor is very pretty and festive. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Have a great weekend.

I found your blog several years ago..and then lost it. Not exactly sure how. I remember how you came to call your blog "White Spray Paint"..had to do with your mother and college I think..anyway..I just happened on your blog again..and it is as beautiful as ever.
What a gorgeous home you have!
