Is it a Cowdeer or a Cowalope?

I like my home to be pretty but comfortable.

And the same goes for when I decorate for Christmas.

I want to decorate to fit the style of my home, but more importantly to work for my family.

And we all like a little bit of unexpected humor.

So when I was working on our coffee table, and I came across our ceramic cow…..

I couldn’t help but hot glue some antlers on her head.

There may or may not be a antler-less deer in our house somewhere.

About Finding Home

My name is Laura and I have been running a small interior decorating business since 2004. I have always had a love for decorating but I never fully realized it until about 10 years ago. I live in New York with my husband and two daughters. They support me and encourage me at every turn. I have always loved the “hunt” for the next treasure, especially when you have to get down and dirty to discover it. I feel like it is time to start taking my business in a new direction. I am not sure exactly what that will be, but this blog is about that journey. About finding a sense of home, a place where we belong and can most be ourselves. Thank you for being part of my journey.

From Our Partners:


  1. LOL!! I love it!

  2. Diane says:

    You are just way toooooo silly! :) Cute little cow-whatever.

  3. Ha! I love your Christmas Cow! In fact, I love the way you ‘styled’ your entire coffee table. My coffee table is something I struggle with, mainly because I have too many little hands trying to play with whatever I put on it =)

  4. Ha! That is hilarious, but perfect! I am so jealous of all of you who already have everything decorated. I need to get it in gear. Maybe I can find some antler-less friend in my stash and give them a little reindeer accessory as well.

  5. I love it! Very, very cute.

  6. must love junk says:

    Ha! He’s so fun! Your decorations look fab (from what I can see!)

  7. Love this! Nothing I love more than some unexpected “whimsy”.

  8. Humor is important. I love that long wood box with the deer/cow and the greenery. I am thinking I can organize some of my clutter with a long box too.

  9. that is so funny…adorable
    and i love the whole tablescape..cozy!
    and you have snow there?:)

  10. MaryAnn Lunniss says:

    You have the McLaughlin sense of humor. I had a chuckle and your grandfather would have enjoyed as well.
    Guess Who

  11. I love it….it is something that my hubby and son would have done!…They always did something to take the “edge” off the sometimes craziness of getting the holiday decorating done…well, at least “my craziness”….You made me laugh and laugh, Laura…thanks for that!!!…
