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



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 Collector's Alley- Santa Collection!

Today I am joining Denise Marie over at Christ is the Heart of Christmas
for Christmas Collector's Alley!

I would like to share with you my collection of Old World and Character Santa's.

These are the ones that I have on display in my Living Room.
When Sam's Club first came to our area about 10 years ago, they had beautiful Christmas decorations at really great prices!
Now is not the case ,unfortunately.

This is a Sam's Club Santa that was only $12.00!

I love the ones I bought from Sam's Club because they have so many other things attached to them....

Here is another one....

This is one I bought at Target on clearance for 75% off- $5.00
He called out to me because he is going down the chimney!

Another one from Sam's Club...
Look at the doll he is holding....

And another one from Target...

These are in my Dining Room....

A small Santa on a shelf...

A paper mache one that I bought 2 years ago at Salvation Army for $4.00!!

This one is a handmade one that I bought at a local Craft Fair about 10 years ago. It sold for triple what I paid but the woman was elderly and was getting out of the business and selling off all of her Santa's. I paid a mere $40.00!!
Look at the roses embossed on the velvet fabric. He is fully dressed underneath too!

This is a Santa Sitter who is sitting on a shelf....

A yard sale find for $2.00....

This one is in my Craft room and was a gift from a friend....

In my Guest Room....

This is another one from Sam's Club that I have showcased in my Den.....

Another one from Target...

A Small Santa on a Shelf...

My Kitchen Santa....
I bought him at J. C. Penney's several years ago...

And a smaller Kitchen Santa from Cracker Barrel' s gift shop...

Well, that is my collection of Santa's.
