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

Home Tour 2010 Part Three: Living Room and Tree # 6 and 7

Today I would like to show you my Living Room.


This room is decorated with traditional Christmas colors...red, green and gold






As you enter through the Front Door, you are directly in our Living Room.



The cane is in corner is symbolic of one of my favorite Christmas movies, Miracle on 34th Street , where Santa leaves his cane in the corner at the house at the end of the movie....


A shelf on the one side of the Hutch...


A large nutcracker...


The hutch was Joe's grandmother's. When she passed away, the family was going to throw it out. I refinished it exactly where it is standing....


Gold churches from Pier One on top of the hutch...



Mostly everything inside the hutch are sets from Sam's Club.....


I went with a white and gold theme for the inside of the hutch....




The shelf on the other side of the hutch...


My Old World Santa's.....




The caroler's are from Lowe's several years ago...

Some of my Bearington Bear's......


See the tree with lights and red and green ornaments in the Santa planter..... Tree # 6





Garland going up the stairs



I have red, green and white lights on the garland along with the candle lights...


The Santa head is from Marshall's....



This is the beginning of the wall into the Dining Room....


Looking into the Dining Room....


Santa that I have hanging....





Victorian Doll, Santa and Bearington Bear....



My Praying Santa's.....



My " Fake " window....



I made the wreath....


That is a Thomas kinkaide throw on the chair....






Tree # 7 is decorated with red, green and gold.....


Mostly Victorian style ornaments......



White lights and 40 candle lights....



Gold sprigs tucked into the tree.....




I made the red velvet ribbon bows.....



The village I collected since 1981 when my oldest son was born.......


My Dad made the platform for our first Christmas 32 years ago.....



I tried to add a piece or two every year.....


But I am running out of room....


I also made the floral swags.....


Some putz houses.......




This house was bought in Big Lot's last year after Christmas.....


These houses were bought also after Christmas at a local Christmas shop....



I won this nativity set at our Church in a raffle several years ago....








The caroler's on the shelves are from the Christmas Tree Shop......


This is a Sam's Club set....




More Bearington Bears.....


I liked the pillows wrapped as presents that I saw at Country Folks Home Decor store so I did my own version by tying this gold fabric around these Target pillows....



A little table by the door when you walk in....



A Victorian Angel.....


A Victorian Doll.........


And back to the front door again....


And that is my Living Room....

  4. Everything is lovely, I especially love the gold churches. I am going to have to go find myself a cane! I love that simple little decor item. I did a giveaway from Macy's for Christmas this year and featured Miracle on 34th Street. Thanks for giving me that idea. If you come and visit me, tell me how many hours it takes to put together your Christmas Fantasy house! It is just mind boggling! Loved touring with you. You really enjoy Christmas and go all out. How fun.

  6. Everything is Beautiful! So many lovely things to see. The wreath is so pretty. I really like your curtains also in the living room, nice color.
    How long did this take to put out all of your ornaments? I feel like a slacker.

  8. Oh Debbie!

    It's so beautiful! Your home looks so lovely and welcoming-I could just curl up with a cup of tea and take in all the Christmas splendor:). Of course, I would have a hard time sitting down because I would want to study all of your wonderful vignettes! I especially love the cane by the door-what a great touch!

    Blessings,

  11. Hi Debbie,
    My, you do go to a lot of work! Where do you get the energy? I used to decorate every room in the house but I've had to cut back because I just don't have the energy any more. This year will be even less because I sprained my wrist a week ago. I love your carollers and angels. The churches are lovely and the hutch filled with white is gorgeous! Great job!

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  17. WOW!! I can't imagine all of your hard work that went into putting this all together, but it's just gorgeous! I think you have almost every inch decorated. It must have taken many years to collect all of your decorations. You did a wonderful job, it looks just beautiful! Happy New Year!
