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 in the Master Bedroom, Christmas Home Tour, 2016

Christmas decorations in the Master Bedroom is pretty much a tale of 2 Trees..........

This is Tree #3.......
 I have 20 + decorated Trees of all sizes in our townhouse this year.....

 This one I call my Victorian Lady Tree.......
 This is the second year that I have used this tree in an urn but this year, I painted the urn, which was originally black, gold....
 The gold fits in so much better with my decor....

This is "my" Tree because it is decorated in the Victorian Style that I love.......
This Tree is decorated with Victorian Style ornaments like purses......
Hats.........
Shoes.....
Dress forms......
Ladies in Hats......
Even a vanity........
A pretty pink and gold shimmering bow tops the Tree........
With streamers flowing down........


Gloves......
Everything that a Victorian Lady would need.......

And it is topped off with Victorian like peacock feathers like feathers on a beautiful Victorian hat!!

 This table will be painted in the Spring along with the entire bedroom set which was my Mother's.......

Around the bottom of the Tree....
 A Bride and Groom in a gold frame...part of my instant ancesters ( meaning no relation to me but bought at a yard sale)
A burgundy velvet evening bag with an embellished hanky......

Gloves with a pretty brooch......
A lovely tea cup with a beg of tea in a lace bag......
A pretty Victorian Doll Head ornaments and another dainty hanky......
 Completing "My" Tree in our bedroom........
 Giving Joe equal time here........

Over on the opposite side of the room, is Joe's Pittsburgh corner......
 Joe is an avid Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh Penguins fan......
We also have Season tickets to the Pittsburgh Penguins AHL team, The Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins, who play at the arena located about 5 minutes from our house.......

Every year, I decorate a Pittsburgh Tree for Joe.......
 I used a different Tree this year.... a small feather type of Tree........

Tree #4
Let's start over in the left hand corner.......
I have been lucky enough to find Team ornaments in our local stores......

A stocking and a hockey player hang from the shelf above the desk........

Joe's Penguin Hockey lamp.........
On the desk........

A framed photo of Joe with Tux, the Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins mascot who Joe booked to make an appearance at our Church Festival one year..........
Penguin Team mini Nutcrackers, a Pittsburgh Steeler's Santa and a snowman hockey player.........

Joe 's Tree sits on a Pittsburgh Steeler's place mat made by a friend of ours.......
It is decorated with ornaments from both teams.......


It is topped with a tiny red bow.......
Here is a close up look of the ornaments......
The Tree is lighted with a set of battery operated LED fairy lights...........

At the base of the Tree..........

 A Christmas hockey puck and a Penguin candle holder......
Over on the right hand side.......
Ornaments also hang from the shelf above on this side too......
This hand crafted Pittsburgh Penguins Tree was bought at a local Crafter's Co Op and I since I will be leaving this on display year round, I am not counting it as a Christmas Tree......
Around the base of this Tree.......

More Penguin's Hockey ornaments and mini Nutcrackers.......
You can see that I also placed a few gold ball ornaments on top of the desk.......

Even a Penguin's Santa cap is hanging from Joe's special team chair that I made for him!!

Since I am still working and work night shift where I have to sleep during the day, these are the only Christmas decorations in our bedroom for now........

   I may add more when I retire in a few years but time will tell......

Up next on the tour of our home decorated for Christmas , will be the decorations in the Upstairs Bathroom and Hallway which I did add more decorations to this year.......
 So I hope you will come back and visit  again ..........

CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE THE TOUR.....

  2. Debbie, you must be a bundle of energy because of all the decorating you do. I'm not going to get a lot done this year due to health issues but I always enjoy coming by to see yours. My hubby is a Detroit fan and he has a few ornaments but no where near the collection your Joe has. It's so nice that you and Joe have so many similar interests. I'm sure he's enjoying his retirement too. Have a wonderful week, my friend.

    Hugs,
    Sandi

  6. I just love all of your trees. I am from Pittsburgh so I also love Joe's tree. My grandson is a Pittsburgh hockey fan. I would go nuts with all of those things. That tree is great.
    Hugs,

  7. I was thinking of putting a tree up in our bedroom this year but knew my husband would not like that. I've been looking for a small tree to put in our dining room instead.
