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!!

Christmas Cottage Journal 2011

Happy Belated Rudolph Day!!

I know... I missed posting on the 25th!!

Well, it was one of those weekend's where what I intended to do, didn't happen!

My oven caught fire ( small flame, no worry) but that lead to buying a new range, refrigerator and TV!!

Don't Ask...

Anyway, I got a bit behind.......

There is always next month on the 25th!!

In this post, I want to share with you last year's Christmas Cottage Journal magazine ...

I bought this in Sam's Club last year and loved it .....

I will let the pictures do the talking.....

























Then there is a section of recipes after all the Decorating Themes and Ideas.

Reminds me a bit of the layout of the Spirit Of Christmas Books........

I hope you enjoyed it!

The Last of The Spirit of Christmas Book Series!!


Hello!!

Did you think I fell off the face of the earth over here at A Debbie-Dabble Christmas???

Blogging News......

For the time being, I have decided to cut back on my posts to once a week for both my blogs, this one and my regular blog, Debbie-Dabble.

By the beginning of September, a busy time of year will be starting for me with Fall and Halloween decorating, wreaths that I have orders for and making crafts for my upcoming Craft Fairs that I do November.

Joe and I are also on vacation for the first 2 weeks of October and we may be doing some one day trips along with a lot of seasonal things we have to do around the house.

So I will be posting on Debbie-Dabble once a week on Thursday mornings. I plan on including everything that went on for the entire week from crafting to decorating to shopping and my garden update.

And I will be posting on A Debbie-Dabble Christmas on Monday mornings ..........

I feel that this will also give me more time to visit with all of you!!

First I would love to share with you a Thrift Store Find...

A Pink and Yellow Christmas Birdhouse!!

Love the frosted snow on it!! It will be perfect in my Guest Room....

It was only $3.99!!
