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!

Christmas in July!!
Many stores and online shops are having Christmas in July Sales. I have even found a fellow blogger that decorates for Christmas in July!! Now that is a woman after my own heart!!

So since it is July and I LOVE Christmas I thought it would be the perfect time to launch my Christmas Blog!

I have found several fellow bloggers that have separate Christmas Blogs and I just loved that idea so I decided to create a separate blog devoted to all things Christmas!

Today I am linking up to Show and Tell Friday! Please visit Cindy and all who are taking part in this great party!

I want to start off my showing you some Christmas goodies that I picked up at a flea market.

Don't you just love this sweet tea pot?
And who can't use more bead garland and a nativity ornament??

Here's a cute pot holder glove for my Kitchen.
And this book looks to be filled with heart warming stories.

The 2 pieces of Christmas fabric have been made into tablecloths which I am now sure if I will use that way and how about these 8 table napkins???

This red handled flatware I bought in a local supermarket on Clearance for 62 cents a piece. I purchased enough for 10 place settings. They will be perfect for Christmas, Patriotic and Valentine's Day tablescapes. Plus, they match my Kitchen which has lots of red in it!

They are silver not gold as the forks look in this photo! Won't they look great with those table napkins???

Until November when I actually start to decorate my home for the holidays, I will post any treasures that I happen to find that relate to Christmas!!

If you have a Christmas Blog, please let me know so I can Follow you!

Thanks for stopping by today and every day that you take the time to visit me!

Hugs and Happy Christmas in July!!

  16. Debbie, I just discovered your Christmas blog and really enjoyed reading various posts. Now I want to start a third blog just for my enthusiasm for Christmas in general. My second blog is Carola Nativity Gallery which is my nativity blog. I collect for Christmas all year long and have loved the Christmas season from childhood. I just followed your new blog.
