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

The Spirit of Christmas Books 16 -17, Christmas in July 2016

    Welcome to the final post in my Christmas in July Series showcasing the Spirit of Christmas Books by Leisure Art!!

This series ran from 1987 to 2003 with a new book published every year.

 I bought mine on Ebay.

 I did share these books on this blog back in 2012 but I have decided to share them again because I LOVE them and I think that even though they are older, you can find inspiration in them!!

I do apologize for the photos because they are from 2012 and were taken with a different camera than I have now but I did not feel like taking the photos over again!!

Each book is divided into 3 sections:

The Sights of Christmas- Decorations

The Sharing of Christmas- Gifts

The Tastes of Christmas- Recipes

These books feature everything you can make by yourself from Decorations to Gifts to Recipes for Cookies, Brunches, Parties and Dinners!!

  I am going to be sharing the decorating ideas from these books and in this post, you will be amazed at all the Christmas Eye Candy!!!!

The Spirit of Christmas  Book 16   2002
