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!!

  11. You're a girl with my heart-I used to put up sooo many trees-I think I had 27 counting all the sizes before I started working retail(don't ever do that!)in the Christmas department. Now 14 years later-I don't want to put up any Christmas decorations-it's sad -I know-maybe one day I'll be like the rest of the people out there-unless I warped for good by it all-the snowman in that bathtub is great-love all your pink goodies!

  12. Decorating that many trees is quite an undertaking! Love that ruffled tree skirt.
