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

IT's the 25th!! HAPPY RUDOLPH DAY!!!!!

It's Rudolph Day!

This means it is the 25th of the month of June.

Christmas is 6 months away!!

And Christmas in July is right around the corner!

I have decided in celebration of Christmas in July, I will be sharing with you some of my Christmas Inspiration!

I have many Christmas books including the entire series called The Spirit of Christmas by Leisure Arts.

This series ran from 1987 to 2003 with a new book published every year.

I bought mine on Ebay and I absolutely love them.

Each book is divided into 3 sections:

The Sights of Christmas- Decorations

The Sharing of Christmas- Gifts

and

The Tastes of Christmas- Recipes

These books feature everything you can make by yourself from Decorations to Gifts to Recipes for Cookies, Brunches, Parties and Dinners!!

Today I am going to share with you The Spirit of Christmas , Book One



The first thing I would like to mention is the graphics are amazing!

Please click on the pics to ENLARGE to read......


" The Sights of Christmas give the season it,s sparkle, and home is where the holiday spirit shines the brightest. Festive trimmings all through the house set a cheerful mood when family and friends gather to share the joys of the season."


Next you will see several decorating themes and great transformations. The book contains directions for everything!


A Beary Merry Christmas






Christmas on the Prairie



A Natural Celebration




Romance and Rose







Among the Pines and Vines


Reflections of the Holidays







Even though this book is from 1987, I think many of these ideas can still be applied and even changed up a bit to fit today's styles!

Sharing Christmas


" Giving is one of the greatest joys of Christmas, and you want your gifts to be as special as the people who receive them. Gifts that are lovingly crafted by hand show people how much you care, and they are sure to be appreciated and admired."

These are just some examples from the book...











Remember all directions are included!



The Tastes of Christmas

" The tantalizing tastes of Christmas bring us an abundance of pleasures. Good food and holiday cheer are always at the heart of the celebration when friends and relatives gather. "

There are tons of cookie recipes along with many others.......




As I mentioned before, if you are interested in these books, The Spirit of Christmas, you can find them on Ebay( here is a link ) or Amazon.

They are delightful with wonderful pictures and instructions!!

I do hope you enjoyed what I have shown you of Book One.

I will be posting excerpts from Book Two in a few days and I will be linking these series of post together with a link to the next book at the end of the previous post so you can start here with Book one and go right through to Book 17!!

If you have any questions on the books, please email me!

HAPPY RUDOLPH DAY!!
