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 My Craft Room, Part 1, Christmas Home Tour, 2017


Welcome to my Christmas Blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas!!

Today, I will be sharing part of my Craft Room decorated for Christmas......

But first, I want to Thank Bev, over at Electic Red Barn, for featuring my post, Victorian Romance in the Dining Room  which was posted over on my regular Blog, Debbie-Dabble Blog, from last week's Thursday Favorite Things Party!!
Thanks so much, Bev!!

Please stop by and link up to this lovely party!!

This is the 3rd post in my annual Christmas Home Tour of our townhouse decorated for Christmas....

I will be adding all my posts on my Christmas Home Tour to my Side Bar........

You can check there if you missed any......

Today, I am continuing to share the upstairs........

In this post, I will be showing you half of my Craft Room decorated for Christmas, including Tree #3!!

I have hung wreaths that I made on all the doors upstairs to match the Christmas decorations in each room......
This is the one hanging on the Craft Room door......
Pink, white and green are the colors of my Christmas decorations in the Craft Room.....
I have come across more pink poinsettias that I plan on adding to this wreath....
I also added a pink Santa head to the center of the wreath.....

Hanging on the closet door is a memento of my children's childhood,,,,,,
This is an Avon Christmas Calendar that I bought when my 2 sons were very young.......
They used to take turns advancing the mouse, counting down to Christmas......

I added a bow and some green snowflakes to decorate it up a bit.....
I now advance the mouse!!!

This is Tree # 3!!!!
I have had this Tree for several years now......
It is a 6 foot slim tree that I bought at a yard sale!!!
I decorated it a bit differently this year.......

You may remember that I found these pink and white poinsettia bushes in Dollar Tree.......
They reminded me of the striped ribbon that I used for the bow at the top of this Tree.......
So I tucked them into the Tree to add a bit of fullness and color.........

I remembered that I had some pink and white striped ribbon......
So I added the ribbon which is just regular sewing ribbon to the Tree as streamers........
The Tree is topped off with that bow made out of pink and white striped ribbon and white feathers.....
The Tree is decorated with primarily pink, white and green ornaments.......
There is white beaded garland on the Tree.....
I will let the pictures do the talking.......
The tree skirt is a simple one that I made......
A cute bear and a Victorian style doll sit on a bench underneath the Tree......
Hanging on the wall next to the Tree is a cute Victorian style tray and a large ornament that I made......
On the floor to the right, is an Ice Skate Planter that I bought several years ago at The Christmas Tree Shop filled with some greenery and more of those pink and white poinsettias.....
This year, this Tree has a lot more pink on it than other years.....
This picture was taken in the early morning with the Sun shining through the window and the lights on......
I am also going to show you Joe's grandmother's antique sewing machine next to the Tree....
I do decorate a small area of the sewing machine next to the Tree for Christmas.....
Above the sewing machine......
I added some Christmas floral rings to the sconces.....
Next to the Tree.....
I have a little Christmas display.....

I was lucky enough to find this frame at a church flea market many years ago......
" Friendly and full of love, December's child is a gift from above"

Both of my sons were born in December!!!  You can see that they did not like Santa.... All of their photos with Santa showed them screaming like crazy! I finally gave up on having Santa photos taken!!

A pink mercury tree, an angel and a white Santa.....
A few pink and green bottle brush trees.....
Another photo with the lamp on....

The rest of the top of the sewing machine......
You can see that I added candlelight with 3 pink wax bulbs......

On the floor underneath the sewing machine.....
An antique washboard that a painted and embellished.....
I hope you enjoyed seeing my Craft Room Tree and some of my Christmas decorations in this room......
Continuing along my Christmas Home Tour, I will be sharing more of the Craft Room and will be sharing this Tree......
And this Tree!!!!
