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!!

A Shop, New Treasures and a Secret!! October Rudolph Day!!

 Welcome to October's Rudolph Day post......
The 25th of every month is considered by many to be Rudolph Day !!

I usually try to post something Christmas related to celebrate Rudolph Day on my Christmas blog......

There are 3 parts to this post....

A Shop, New Treasures and a Secret!!

Let's start with "A Shop"........

Recently, we visited one of my favorite shops. Country Folk........
It is a 3 story barn that has been turned into an amazing Home Decor Store.........

I did a post over on my regular blog, Debbie-Dabble Blog, showcasing how Country Folk was decorated for Fall and Halloween......
If you missed that post, please click HERE.....

Even though Country Folk is now closed for 2 weeks as the staff decorates for Christmas, they have a Christmas display of Pennsylvania made Byers Choice Carolers up year round..........
I will let the pictures do the talking.....
As I said, Country Folk is closed for 2 weeks but their amazing display house was already closed when we were there and the decorating had already begun......
We will be going back in a few weeks and I will be doing several posts featuring the amazing Christmas displays that they are noted for.......

Part 2 of this post deals with "New Treasures".....
I want to share some of my new Christmas treasures!!
  I had a Gift Card for Cracker Barrel and instead of using it for a meal, I went shopping!!!!
I bought this lovely Putz house for $20........
And these 2 ornaments.....
With the gift card, I only paid $5.35 for these....

A neighbor gave me this cute Victorian dress ornament.......
My Pink Christmas Treasures........
I bought this cute tin for $1.99 in Gabes.........
I loved the graphic on it.......

And I bought these at Big Lot's using a coupon that I received from using my Rewards Card........
I am not sure if I will using the deer ornaments for Christmas or wait until I do my Winter Tree in the Den after Christmas......

I love this......
And it lights up.......
Big Lot's has a great collection of Christmas items this year......
And I also want to thank Linda for sending me these wonderful Christmas books.........
Thanks so much!!

Linda, I lost your email address so please email me!!!

The 3rd part of this post is my Secret.........
These photos are NOT from last year!!!
During the month of October, I secretly decorated the upstairs for Christmas!!
I did the same thing last year and it really gave me a head start on my Christmas decorating!!!
 
In about 2 weeks, I will start posting my annual Christmas Home Tour here on my Christmas Blog!!
Yes, I am one of those people who are crazy about Christmas and start celebrating the Christmas season before Thanksgiving.
I like to have the whole house and I do mean the whole house decorated before Thanksgiving so I can sit back and enjoy the Holiday season!!
So I hope you will come by and visit  again!!

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

If you do not have a blog, PLEASE  give me some way to reply to your comment, maybe by including your email in your comment.  If I can not find a way to reach you, I will reply on the post where you commented so please check back......

Hugs,
Debbie
