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, over 20 in all shapes and sizes!!

The majority of my Christmas decorations are placed in the same spot every year and I know that this is not what most Decorator's care for but it is like seeing old friends again when I decorate each year for Christmas.......

I do try to add a few new things and change up things a bit but for the most part, these decorations are part of my Christmas traditions and I will not change them until I can no longer decorate like I do......

This blog is dedicated to All Things Christmas!!

Updated Winter Decorations!


Finally, some snow here in Northeast Pa.!

We had a very light and fluffy snowfall this morning of about 2-3 inches.

When I got home from work this morning I took these pictures of the front of our home.....

They look so much better with a bit of snowy white.....

I think the penguins like the snow....


It is only about 24 degrees here so the snow is not melting any time soon......


I think this Flower Bed looks so much better with a bit of white fluffy snow.....


Love the way the snow looks on the garland with the white lights....


I guess this Penguin finally got what he wanted....


Some scenes from our back yard this morning....



The back yard at night.....


I am one of those rare souls who actually loves winter and snow. I don't ski but I did love to sleigh ride as a kid.
But I am tired of having to drive to work no matter what the roads are like when it snows as hospitals do not give snow days...

I long for the days when I can stay at home and enjoy a fresh fallen snowfall and don't have to drive anywhere in it.....

Wreath Additions!

I bought these tubes of Shatter Proof Ornaments at Target for 75% off for 25 cents each after being inspired by so many bloggers using the Shatter Proof ornaments for their outside decorations.

When I took down my Christmas wreaths that were on my windows, I decided to add some of these ornaments to them for next year.

Before......

And after......


Front Door Wreath Before.....




After I added red glitter ornaments....



There will be just a bit more Glitz for next year!!

More after Christmas Shopping!

I went to Burlington Coat Factory the other day and all of their Christmas items were 75% off.
These 2 white and gold glitter Santas caught my eye and for the price of $6.74 for both with tax, who could resist!



I thought they would look nice on top of the Hutch in the Living Room with each of my gold glitter churches that I bought at 75% off at Pier One a few years ago.



Then I found more of these cute pastel glittered snowmen in a local department store for 75% off......


I added them to my Fake mantle in my guest room since that room is painted yellow.....


They were a little over $2.00 each!


And look at these beauties!!

PINK LED lights!!

Half price in Big lots!!

Hmmmmm..... maybe for a PINK Valentine's Day tree............
