I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart

I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!

~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol


Christmas is my favorite Holiday and my favorite time of year!

I go all out decorating our small townhouse for all Holidays but especially Christmas!

Every room in our home has a different Christmas Theme and Color Scheme!!

I prove that you do not have to live in a large home to have several Trees!

This blog is dedicated to All Things Christmas!!

Christmas in the Master Bedroom, Christmas Home Tour 2015

 Welcome to Our Annual Christmas Home Tour!!

First , I want to Thank Christine, over at Must Love Home, for featuring my post, A Magnificent Wreath, from last week's Friday Favorites Party!!
Thank so much , Christine!!

I am thrilled to say that this year, I was able to decorate the entire house like I wanted to from top to bottom!!

How many Trees total for this year???????

Well, I am actually still decorating so the final count is not in yet but there are 7 decorated Trees upstairs!!

This year, I am doing things differently than I have in the past. I usually start Our Tour with the Outside of our townhouse but since I am beginning the Tour early this year, I am starting with the upstairs first and will end with the Outside of our house.

I finished decorating the upstairs before Halloween!!

I am kicking off our Annual Christmas Home Tour in the Master Bedroom, which I have not decorated for Christmas since 2012!

This is how it looked then when I used this 4 1/2 foot Tree over in the corner of the Bedroom......
 I had called this the Tree of my Childhood because of the vintage Shiny Brite ornaments, silver tinsel and the village underneath the Tree created with some of my parent's Plasticville pieces and Putz houses.

This year, I got rid of the large table, which was a white resin patio table covered with a tablecloth.

I wanted to create a little reading area for myself in this corner since I am now Part Time and hope to be able to spend some time Reading.

This is how this corner of our Bedroom looks now......
 Here is my Reading Corner.....
 If you missed my post on how I transformed this table that was on the side of one of the dumpsters in our townhouse development, please click HERE
 You can see that I no longer had any room for that larger Tree.
 It found a home with my son Jim and his girlfriend, Danielle!!

 I had moved this table, which was once on the side of my bed ,over here next to the TV entertainment center.
  I decided to use one of a set of 2 Trees that I bought at Big Lot's 2 years ago on Thanksgiving Day that only cost $19.99 !!!

This is one of 2 Trees in our Bedroom..........
 I have my Tree and Joe has his Tree........

 I decided that I would decorate my Tree with Victorian style ornaments........
I used a bow made from pink and gold shimmery ribbon as a topper, along with peacock feathers.......
I also added streamers of the same ribbon......
The ornaments on this Tree are Purses.......
Things a Victorian Lady would have in her bedroom like a Vanity, a pretty Chair and Dress Forms!!
Also Gloves......
And Hats....
Shoes and Umbrellas........
 And some mini ornaments.....
Victorian Ladies......
 Who like pretty Dresses!!
 And around the Tree on the table........
A Pretty Doll Head.....
Gloves and Pearls......
 After Christmas, I think I will spray paint the urn white......
 A Vintage Wedding Picture.......
A Hat Box........
 A Tea Cup and A Tea Bag..........
 So this is Tree # 1 ..........
 And of course, lit up at night!!
Now over to Joe's Pittsburgh corner.......
Joe is an avid Pittsburgh Steelers and Penguins fan.........
 We also are Season Ticket Holders for the AHL Wilkes Barre-Scranton Penguins who play at the Arena which is 5 minutes from our home!!

This is the one place in the house that is Joe's!!
I actually put this corner together for Joe........

I painted shelves bought at yard sales and flea markets to display Hockey Pucks and Bobble Heads......
I painted frames black and framed Sports Memorabilia.......
 I even made him his own Team Chair a few years ago!!

Penguins on the back.......
 Steelers on the front!!
 It's only fitting that he too would have his own Tree!!
This is Joe's Tree and it is Tree #2!!!

I have this small Tree on top of the roll top desk, decorated with Pittsburgh Penguin and Steeler ornaments.....
I made a bow out of red burlap ribbon for the top.......
Hung a thin red beaded garland that I cut into strands on the Tree......
There are 2 strands of battery operated mini Led Warm White lights on the Tree.......
Penguin Stockings........
And a Penguin Santa.......
More ornaments......
Even a Hockey playing Snowman.........
And that is how our bedroom looks , decorated for Christmas!!

With my Tree.........
And Joe's Tree......
 Trees # 1 and 2!!

Now what did I do with all those vintage Shiny Brite ornaments???????

I used them in other rooms like in the Guest Room..........
And the putz houses too!

Soon I will  be sharing the Guest Room on our Christmas Home Tour but the upstairs Bathroom will be the next room on the Tour......

 So I hope you will come by and visit  again!!

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!
