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

WELCOME TO MY CHRISTMAS BLOG!!

WELCOME TO MY CHRISTMAS BLOG!!

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!!

Country Folks Tour Part 3 And Christmas Tree # 4

First I want to send out a Big THANK YOU to a thoughtful fellow Blogger who emailed me and then asked if she could send something to me!

And here is what I received in the mail the other day from a wonderful and artistic Blogger, Cindy Adkins!!


One of her Christmas Journals and Christmas magnets!!! Cindy has a great blog, Whimsical Musings and you can visit her by clicking HERE

Thanks again, Cindy!! You are too kind!!

I have been off from work this week and I have been busy.
But first, I would like to share a bit of news with all of you. I had my Cystoscope done this week.
It is my yearly Cancer check up where they look to see if the tumor that I had in my right ureter ( the tube from the kidney to the bladder) has grown back.

Good News!! I remain Cancer Free!!
Once again, I have been given the gift of Time!

I went to see Trans Siberian Orchestra on Sunday evening and it was 3 hours of fantastic music, lights, lazors and pyro!! We were right off the stage to the right and had a great view!!
If you have ever been to one of their concerts, in the first half, they tell a story which is the same story featured on their PBS Special. It is about an angel sent down from heaven to find the good in man on Christmas Eve. I still get tears in my eyes every time !!! If you have the opportunity to go to their Winter Concert, GO!!! You will not be disappointed!

And this is how I have been spending my week off.......

Getting ready for my last Craft Fair that I will be doing that will be held Saturday and Sunday!
How my space looked at my last Craft Fair two weeks ago....


Making things to stock my space at a local Antique and Craft Co Op!


And decorating for Christmas!!

I have my Living Room completely finished...
Here is a sneak peek at my Living Room tree after I got done with the lights....

I use candle lights along with regular white lights to give this tree a Victorian look.

And I have finished the Dining Room and it's 7 foot slim tree!
Here is a sneak peak at my Dining Room Tree with only the lights on.....


I add white and pink rose lights to this tree. I bought the first set of pink lights at a Garage Sale for $1.00 and about 2 years later , found the white rose lights at another yard sale for 50 cents. Both sets were brand new in original packaging!



Today I would like to show you Christmas Tree # 4 which is my Guest Room tree!



I like to call this my Nostalgic Tree! Many of the ornaments that have special meaning to me are on this tree!



I have chosen a bright Pink Ribbon to make the Bow on top of the tree out of and matching snowflakes since they match the darker pink in the drapes and in the bedspread on the bed in this room.

Some of the ornaments were mine as a child.....


Were from my both son's First Christmas....



Bought for me by Friends and Family.....



Some are from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer which is one of my favorites. Did I ever tell you that I remember the very first time it was on TV????


The icicles were bought by hubby, Joe at a church Flea Market for 25 cents for 4 packs!!




Disney ones are from our trip to Disney World in Florida when the boys were young!


The crocheted snowflakes were bought for me by my MIL at her church Flea Market for $3.00 for the whole bag!!!!


This is a 6 foot potted tree that I bought at Target for 75% off..... $10.00!!



And now for Part 3 of the TOUR of COUNTRY FOLKS Home Decor Store.

These are more pics of the second Floor!




This is a white tree with brown ornaments!! Stunning!!




Do you see the "Let it Snow"???




When we turned the corner, all I could say was "WOW"!!!!!



A hunters and Fisherman's Christmas.......





Gold And White....







A copper and gold tree....



Love the Vintage looking ornaments on this tree!




I love the bedding on this bed!

  5. Hi Debbie,
    This is pure gorgeousness!!! WOW! Thank you so much for posting the journal and magnets--that was so sweet of you!
    And I am ecstatic about your test results--it is wonderful news--and just in time for Thanksgiving--amazing!
    I wish I could get my picture to show you, but when I was little, my dad made a sled out front just like your dad made--they are precious, aren't they? It made me so nostalgic when I saw yours...We are blessed to not only have beautiful childhoods, but also to bring the joy of Christmas to others.

    You will do fantastic at the craft fairs...Your spaces look amazing!!
    Like candy with sugar on top!
