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!!

I am STILL decorating!

Hello, dear friends!

Yes, I am STILL decorating! I feel like I have been decorating forever! Actually, I have been....since mid October. But I have been working around working full time, participating in 2 Craft Fairs and a surgical procedure!
Every year I say I must plan better but.........
Maybe next year.

I must apologize for not getting out to visit everyone in Blogland and I promise that once I am FINALLY done decorating, I will visit all of you!

I am finishing the Kitchen today and then moving on to the Powder Room, which will be the last room!

Many of you have been asking to see what I have been up to and I will start the Tour of Our Home next Friday Evening. I will be doing several posts a week rather than the one weekly post that I have been doing for some time now. Thanks so much for your interest!

Here is another sneak peek of some of my trees.......

My Living Room Tree....

My Dining Room Tree....

A wire ornament Tree in my Den....

My Den Tree....

And this darn thing above my Kitchen window out to the Den, took me FOREVER yesterday to do.....

Have I ever mentioned that I pretty much take out everything normal, and replace it with Christmas things in the entire downstairs?????

Yes, I am crazy! Crazy for Christmas!!

So please come back and visit soon as I start to unveil the fruits of all my labors!

One more thing, I have been invited by my friend, Lisa Lewis, Victoriana Lady,
who is employed by the Stegmaier Mansion as Tour Guide among other functions, to help decorate the mansion for Christmas!!!!
I have always wanted to help decorate the White House but this is just as good and I am so looking forward to Monday morning when we start to decorate the Stegmaier Mansion which has been featured in Victorian Homes magazine twice this year. To see the actual articles, please click on the link to the Stegmaier above. The articles are on the mansion's web site.

Thanks for stopping by today and every day that you take the time to do so!!

  15. You are so amazing ... and wherever do you get the energy to keep going? You're like that battery bunny in the television commercials. I certainly know why you were asked to help decorate S. Mansion ... you're super talented at pulling it all together for the holidays!

  16. Do you do a house tour? A freind of ours gives a tour and the cover charge is canned goods that she donates to a food pantry.

    Love the sneak peak!
