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!!

Country Folks Christmas Wonderland!! Part 1

Do you have a favorite shop or store that you like to go to every year to get your Christmas Inspiration????

Well, Country Folks in Nescopeck, Pa. is where I LOVE to go to get me in the mood for Christmas Decorating! Click HERE to visit their Web Site!

Today I went with my dear friend Ann Marie and it was like we walked into Christmas Heaven!
We spent 2 hours there and what a fantastic time we had. I took 129 pictures!!! Can you believe it??
That is why this is going to be Part 1 of your tour of Country Folks!

Country Folks is a 3 story Barn that has been converted into a magnificent home Decor Store. It is located on a Family Farm.

The old Farm house has been converted into a Display House that is completely furnished and decorated for every Holiday and Season!

Our tour today will be of the first floor.
When we walked in the door we were greeted by this lovely Nativity Scene.

And isn't this adorable???

Country Folk sells furniture, curtains, lamps and rugs so the entire store is set up and decorated in vignettes.

What a great idea placing the snowmen in those large jars!!

This was the first tree that greeted us!

And the second one!

Don't you just love this idea??? The "candy" is a garland!!

Another wonderful cupboard display!

I love those trees on the left side. I think one or two would look great in my kitchen!

They carry Byer's Choice Carolers and accessories and boost one of the largest selections in our area.

And Boyd's Bears....

I adore this sweet vignette!!

Love the Boyd's Bear tree!!

The sign "Believe " is another one of my favorites!

More Byer's Choice!

These Ginger Bread Houses are to Die for!!

A wide range of Polish Pottery is also available...

And the table is all set...

This is in the Vera Bradley Room. A Beautiful Stone Fireplace!

A North Woods Themed tree....

This is a table cloth that was draped over the railing going up the stairs to the second floor.

For Part 2, which features photos of the Second Floor with more great decorating ideas and lots of Glitz and Glam, Please Click HERE

  18. Hi Debbie :) What an incredible place! My goodness, there is soooo much for the eye to take in, that it's going to take a few minutes on each photo to see it all :)

    With all the xmas stockings that I have been making it's really getting me in the mood to decorate for Christmas; but, I don't do that until the day after Thanksgiving. I have so much fun putting my 2 trees up and getting out all the pretty decorations...I have a pink tabletop tree that goes in our Living Room, and a regular size tree that I put in the Dining Room.

    Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and upcoming weekend!

    Warmest hugs, Brenda
