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 at Kohl's

I was in Kohl's the other day and I checked out their Christmas department.....
Take a look at these sweet ornaments....



Now don't they look like they were Blogger inspired?????

This cutie came home with me!!
Here are more pics of Kohl's Christmas department.....






I will start to decorate the upstairs in our home soon for Christmas.

I usually like to have the upstairs finished by October 31st and then I will just need to concentrate on taking Fall and Halloween decorations down and decorating for Christmas downstairs.....

I have a new white tree that I bought on Clearance last year and can not wait to put it up and decorate it. It will be going in the guest room.

Right now I have my Harvest Tree all decorated in my Living Room.....

 And my Halloween Tree in my Dining Room....

Please visit my regular blog, Debbie-Dabble, to see more of my Autumn and Halloween decorations.

Review of Christmas Cottage Journal....

August 3,2014 Update:
Christmas Countdown Linky Party
I am linking up this post from 2 years ago.......

Thanks for the party, Sherry!!!

ORIGINAL POST:

 I received  my issue of The Christmas Cottage Journal through the mail yesterday and squealed with delight!!
I subscribe to this magazine for Half the Price of what you would pay for the 4 issues in a year at News Stand prices . I think it is well worth it.......

It is filled with so much eye candy...

I chose some of my favorites from the magazine to share with you and will simply let the pictures do the talking.......

ENJOY!!!!

Trans-Siberian Orchestra!!!!

WHOA!!

I just snagged my tickets for this season's Trans Siberian Orchestra's New LIVE Show!!


This is an all NEW show for this year......

Many of you know that we see TSO every year and this is one of our Christmas traditions.

We will be at the 3:00 pm show on Sunday November 25th in row H ( a little lower than mid way up) in section 103 which is right off the stage!!
This is the weekend after Thanksgiving so I will really be in the Christmas Spirit!!

If you have never seen TSO in concert, you are missing a fantastic Rock Opera  with Lazers, spectacular  Lighting effects and Pyro that is better than any rock concert touring to this date offers!

I highly recommnend TSO's Winter Tour to people of all ages!!

Please turn off my music to view the trailer for Tour 2012-2013!



Hugs,
Deb

Pay Dirt at Sally's!

Yes,  I hit pay dirt at Sally's!!!
 
 I went to Salvation Army today and was walking down the store long aisle of Housewares and Decor and this caught my eye!
Could I be seeing things but is that a Christmas plate mixed in with all the dishes?????

I took a closer look........

"Winter Wonderland"
And what a beauty she was!

This is what is on the back of this Christmas Collector's Plate........

Royal Windsor Christmas Carol Collection
  
 As I glance down the aisle, I see more Christmas Collector's plates......

Be still my heart!!

Not only one but 4 of them!!!!

And the price on each is......

99 cents!!!!

WHOA!!!

 
This is unusual because our Salvation Army is pretty pricey at times so to find these for only 99 cents is a huge score in my book!!!

"Together at Christmas"
 
  1989 Avon Plate
  
"The Magic that Santa Brings"
 
 1987 Avon plate
 
 "Home for the Holidays"
1987 Avon plate

  So don't you think I hit pay dirt at Sally's with these Christmas plates?????

I am thinking up to these great parties:

It's Starting to Look like Christmas at Michael's!!

I went to Michael's the other day and even though they are loaded with Fall and Halloween decorations, they did have some Christmas things set along the side wall....

Take a sneak peak.....




Now if that doesn 't get you in the mood for Jolly Old St. Nick......

Have a great week....

Hugs,
Debbie
