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 Den, Christmas Home Tour, 2018

     Welcome to my Christmas Blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas!!
I only have this post and one more post left on my Christmas Home Tour for this year....

Today, I will be sharing my Den, decorated for Christmas!!!

But first, I want to Thank Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn , for featuring my post, Victorian Style Christmas Tree and Village,  from last week's Over the Moon Linky Party!!!
Thanks so much, Bev!!

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

The color theme of our Den is ivory, burgundy and blue and I carried that over into my Christmas decorations......

We will start directly to the left when you enter the Den for the Kitchen......
The mirrored door leads into a small storage room......

On the side of the door.....
When I bought this vintage looking mailbox at Michael's in October, I had planned on using it outside on the front porch but on second thought, I decided to use it in this room instead......
A wreath that I made hangs on this door.......
And a calender hangs on the door of the Pantry Closet....
This is the left side of the room......
This is my corner where I watch TV when Joe is watching his hockey games in the Living Rom......
Above the TV.......
Carolers on the shelves......
A swag that I made hangs above the picture.....
"Twas the night before Christmas....Not even a mouse was stirring"......
On each side of the TV are 2 Thomas Kinkade Christmas houses......
In the corner where the electrical box and old phone box is.......
A vintage style phone.......
On the end table in the corner.......
A Santa and a snowman that I bought at Burlington.......
Above my chair.......
The shelf.......
Victorian style Christmas plates........
And a vintage style Christmas book box......
On the shelf below the picture.......
More vintage style Christmas items.....
A pillow and a dapper looking snow man sits on the top of the chair......
The back door......
Angels hang on the curtain rod.....
A wreath that I made hangs on the door......
A Thomas Kinkade 4 Season clock with a Winter plate in it.....
A Santa and a Santa head.....
The right side of the room......
The 4 foot Christmas Tree in the Den......
I decorated it in ivory and burgundy......
It is topped off with a bow made from burgundy velvet  and music sheet ribbon......
Streamers of both ribbon hang down around the Tree......
Most of the ornaments on this Tree are Victorian style......
In colors of burgundy and ivory.......
There are also Thomas Kinkade ornaments on this Tree.......
And tea pot and tea cup ornaments.....
And a few candle like ornaments to give the Tree that Victorian look......
Burgundy velvet and burgundy gold glittered roses are tucked into this Tree.....
Ivory beaded garland with roses embossed on each bead is the garland that I used on this Tree....
There is a small village underneath the Tree with vintage Putz houses and a plastic Nativity scene just like the one I had as a child underneath the Tree that I decorated in our Sitting Room at the age of 9 years old!!
 I used an ivory tree skirt underneath the Tree this year,,,,,
On the side of the Tree on a burgundy velvet ottoman.......
Is an Old World Santa dressed in a burgundy velvet outfit bought at Sam's Club many years ago......
And a reindeer bought in Big Lot's last year,,,,,
Angels hang on the curtain rods of the 2 windows in the Den....
On the shelves between the windows is where I display a set of Charles Dicken's Christmas Carol figures that I bought probably 25 years ago in Boscov's!!
Over in this corner is my main computer in a computer armoire.......
On top of the computer armoire......
You can see snowmen on the shelf in the corner......
This year I decided to display a collection of angels here with a wood church that I bought about 10 years ago in Burlington.........
 A Thomas Kinkade house and a Thomas Kinkade candle ....
I also have my very 1st Praying Santa displayed here....My MIL made it for me in ceramics about 35 years ago!!
I have a collection of Praying Santa items displayed in the Living Room......
The blue angel is a Thomas Kinkade angel......
On a small table next to the computer armoire is my LED branch tree that I decorated a bit differently this year......
I hung a few Victorian style ornaments on the tree.......
 A small wreath that I made hangs on the wall behind the Tree......
 And the Tree is sitting in a deep red almost burgundy colored wagon that I bought in the Summer.....
On the shelf underneath......
In this corner of the room is where my Victorian Doll House, Nelson Crest is displayed!!
  If you would like to read the post I did about Nelson Crest and how I decorated it for Christmas this year, please click HERE

There is another chair next to the dollhouse........
A picture of Roy Nelson, the wonderful man who built my doll house sits on a shelf above the chair......
A few Winter pillows......
Next to the chair is my China Cabinet.......
And this is where I will leave off in this post and where I will pick up in my next post when I share how I decorated the China Cabinet for Christmas........
 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!!
