    The textures, layers, pillows, throws, greenery …. and I could almost small those beautiful gingerbread cookies in your kitchen. All so beautiful and heartwarming. I would love this magazine in print so I could ruffle through the pages endlessly drooling. Merry Christmas ????

    Nora, what a treat! Loved seeing your home decorated for the Season! Everything looks fresh and yet traditional at the same time! All the beautiful greenery mixed with the variety of plaids was so refreshing. I am a lifelong magazine addict and never thought that I would be able to enjoy magazines online, but your NMCH editions have proved me wrong. I look at yours again and again and continue to see something that inspires me and just makes me smile at the beautiful details that you bring to each page. Thank you for sharing your home and creative gifts with us!
    Merry Christmas and Happy 2017

    Nora- From issue #1, I have loved every NMCH magazine. This issue is equally wonderful. Your 2016 holiday home is festive, magical and inviting. As always, you have produced fresh and creative ways to “work with what you’ve got”. I am absolutely grinch-green with envy over the RL hutch-what a find!!! It is perfect in your reswizzled dining room! Enjoy your newfound treasure!
    Wishing you and the Murphy Family a merry and bright Christmas!!

    Lovely, lovely.
    You capture the feel and spirit of Christmas. So enjoy the natural look with out all the glitz!
    Tell me where I can find the long basket you use to hold the boxwoods? So enjoy boxwood outside, this allows us to bring it inside for winter pleasure. Thanks.
    Happy holidays,
