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!

HOME TOUR 2010 Part Five: Den and Trees # 9, 10 and 11

Welcome to our HOME TOUR Part Five!

If you missed Parts 1,2,3 and 4, Please click on the pics on my Side Bar to link to these posts!!

This is my Den.......


It originally was the outdoor patio of the house....



My Dad enclosed it, heated it , took out the Kitchen door and window and made it another room for us....


It became the Toy Room for the boys......
Now it is where one of my computers is located and where we spend drinking our coffee in the morning while catching up on the local news on the TV......



Since it was a patio, it is only 8 ft. by 20 ft.

Weird dimensions but you have to work with what you have!



Now I will take you around the room...


As you can see it has a Blue and Burgundy theme...
Every room of my home is a different color....


As you come out of the kitchen, going to the right........


My sister bought this for me the first Christmas without our Mom .....



This door is to a small storage room.....
Okay you know by now that I made the wreath and floral swags in this room too!

The Calendar is from Avon many years ago. My sons used it to count down the days til Christmas and I still do....


Have you noticed how much I like shelves.....


I have some Thomas Kinkade things and some that look like his, in this room....


Burgundy in this room!


One of my Santa's and one of my Dolls....



A Thomas Kinkade Music Box....


End tables were bought by Joe at a Church Flea Market for $6.00!!
Tiffany Lamp is from the Dining Room where that tree is now....






I love my " Believe " sign!! Do you Believe????



Some of my Victorian Tassel dolls......


My Back Door.....



Thomas Kinkade Four Season Plate Clock.......



And tree # 9!!!



I originally had the 7 ft. slim that is now in the Dining Room out here but when I had my doll house built, I had to change thins around.....

Thomas Kinkade house underneath the tree and a light up Dickens like town under the table.......

Those Santa boxes underneath the table house my Christmas Movie collection...


Vintage topper and pheasant feathers which were a popular Victorian decoration....


This tree has cream and burgundy colored ornaments along with Thomas Kinkade ornaments....



The beaded garland has a rose pattern embossed on it and I have burgundy roses stuffed into the tree...







For Tea Tuesday, see the Thomas Kinkade Tea Pots and Tea Cups......







Remember my Church Flea market find.....
All filled with Teddy Bears...



Where my computer is concealed and I do most of my posting....



These Christmas Carol figures came from a local department store many years ago....



Angels on the curtains....


This another set from Sam's Club....


Another Wreath I made....



This hides the computer cords!



My Victorian Doll house, Nelson Crest, is also decorated!!!




I will do a separate post showing you Nelson Crest....

This is tree # 10 that I made for Nelson Crest....



And here it is in the Parlor....



Den side of what was the kitchen window....


Tree # 11

I bought these ornaments at Micheal's several years ago and they remind me of my childhood and Christmas in the 60's so I thought they deserved a separate tree...


Some close ups......





The little girl on the sled is me as a kid...
We lived on a hill and I was always sleigh riding...
Just recently I realized that they must have NEVER taken care of that road since we used to sleigh ride so much!! LOL!!


My Thomas Kinkade Calendar with a different plate for each month.....



The inside of my hutch....


The little house were from Ollie's this year for $2.99 each!!




Underneath the Hutch....



Victorian doll and a Thomas Kinkade house inside the cloche....


My " Antique " toys...

This car is fiberoptic and was a gift from my sister!



On the door...


Another Santa....


And this is the first snow of the season for us....

  3. Hello Debbie,
    that is so sad that you have to celebrate Christmas without your Mom but I think she will watch you from heaven. And she will probably like all the nice decorations and the lovely tribute to her.
    Greetings, Johanna

  5. Debbie, your den is as beautiful as the rest of your lovely home. I enlarge all the pics so I can look at all the pretty things. I say this in every tour comment but I am looking forward to the kitchen tour. I honestly do love looking at your beautiful home. You inspire me. We have frigid temps here and 4-5 inches of snow on the ground. Brr!! I don't mind winter but I do not like it when it gets this cold. It is hard on everything and everyone. I'll be back for the kitchen tour!
