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!!

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER FOR RUDOLPH DAY!!

Well, HAPPY RUDOLPH DAY!!

A day late...

Sorry, I have just been so busy...

But better late than never...

For this month's Rudolph Day, I decided to feature 2 of the many Christmas books that I have.

The first one I bought about 10 years ago when the Michael's , which is located right next to my development, opened about 10 years ago. This book has been one of my favorite's since the day I bought it....

I am sure you will agree with me that this is a fantastic book after you see these pics..

A charming entry statement....

Why not decorate your gate.....

There is just something so elegant about gold and white....

Look at all these angels....

I love this collection of small wreaths on this window....

Old World Santa's....one of my favorite things.....

A Beautiful centerpiece....

A Great way to display a Village....


Beautiful garland on the stair railing....


Love the wreath tied to the back of the chairs....

Della Robia Decor.....

Trees made from clay pots...

Beautiful......


Now this is my style.....

A Victorian Tree....

Angel Wreath...

Love the lace....


Heavenly angels......

And who doesn't love red transferware for Christmas.....

A mini Victorian tree....

So sweet....

I hoped you enjoyed browsing through this book...

and now for one more Christmas book....

This book I bought 2 years ago at The Christmas Tree Shop for 99cents on Clearance!!

What a buy it was as it is filled with so much eye candy!!

Don't you just love this????

All mini ornaments on this tree...

Great way to decorate a shelf....

And look at this tiered stand...

A silver tinsel tree...


An angel tree....

All white and pink and frilly....


Love these sweet snowmen made out of spindles...

And isn't this one cute?


I love villages...


How original that this is set up on a drum????


I adore the Santa sign on the top of the hutch....

A collection of vintage Santa's.....

Look at all those bottle brush trees?

I am in total love with this pic!


I am sure that maybe you can find these books on Ebay or Amazon. I do highly recommend them if you love to decorate for Christmas.

I will feature more of my Christmas books next month on Rudolph Day and I promise not to be late......

I have also entered my Kitchen post from Christmas 2011 in The Talent Scouting Contest over at Whisperwood Cottage for Cottages and Bugalows Magazine. It should show in a day or two after approval. Please click HERE to see all the entries...

  2. Good Morning Debbie Sweetie...
    Oh my gosh what beauty you are sharing today. I love the Michael's book. It just jumped right off the pages with its beautiful shares. (Now the Country gal that I am, that little clay pot tree spoke to my heart.) Let me tell you, it will be popping up in my house this coming Christmas. I will be searching the Estate sales and garage sales for clay pots. I love it.

    So many beautiful ideas. I love seeing the Victorian shares, as they are definitely you dear friend. Your home is like walking through a beautiful book.

    Hope you have a gorgeous day sweet friend. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

  8. Debbie -- The Christmas books are delightful. So many ideas ... so little time ... but it is fun to plan how we can incorporate a bit of those ideas into our own homes.

    Visiting from the Bunny Hop, Debra

  11. I'm surprised Joe lets you out of the house with a Michael's so close to you. I'd probably be there shopping every day. How lucky you are that you can just drop in so easily.

    I love getting Christmas ideas from books, so thanks for sharing some of your favorites at my party!
