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 in July , Part 2

This is Part 2 of my post through out the entire month of July for Christmas in July!!

I have ordered several of these tins from Ebay before but I just had to have a vintage looking Christmas one!!

And a post card to boot!! ( my hubby is a mail man)

Last week Joe and I started sorting and pricing the donations that came in for our church's Fall Flea market.

I am lucky to have first pick but I do run up quite a tab....

These are a few items that came home with me....

Look at these great vintage ornaments....

Shiny Brites.....

And this is a church made by Lemax.

I have the village pieces and this is too large for the village but I am sure I will find a spot for this beauty........

Check it out lit up.....

A Christmas Kitchen towel.....

A tin with a Victorian skating scene .....

An Avon Plate...
I have 3 of these and this is one that I do not have....

And 12 of these darling box ornaments....

See what I mean by a box....

I can't wait to see where I will end up using these in decorating my home for Christmas...

I am linking up to these great parties:

  1. You found some lovely things, Debbie :) :) Oh, how lu cky you are to get first pick of all the stuff :) :) I'd have to be careful not to buy everything ;) :)

    The box ornaments are really sweet. How b ig are they? Would it be possible to hang them from the tree if they were filled with goodies?

    Have a great week. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  2. You found some great treasures, especially the large church that is illuminated, and that first tin box. Christmas is on its way!

  3. Debbie what gorgeous treasures! I'm so envious of you folks that live in the States. You seem to get the most gorgeous Christmas things ever over there! (We don't seem to here in Australia or maybe I just don't know where to shop)I just love your blogs especially this Christmas one. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and treasures with us all. :)

  4. I just love those vintage ornaments! It is so hard to find them over here...yours look like new!

    Happy Christmas in July!

    Best wishes,

  5. Love all you found. The ornaments sure bring back memories of our tree when I was a kid many eons ago. And the church is wonderful.
    I was into our local Good will yesterday and they had seveal small villiage pieces. I refrained from adding to my set but at $1.00 each I may have to go back and just hope I can have a larger place to put the village up.

    Would love to have it under the tree but with the kitty and one dog am sure it would not be in one piece long.

    Oh those boxes are adorable. Love them.


  6. Debbie, you've got some great pickin's so far - I love the ornaments and the church!

  7. Those Shiny Brites are gorgeous! And in the original box too. You are so lucky!

  8. Great Christmas finds Debbie! I just bought a couple of Shiny Brite bulbs at a barn sale. but, they are not even close to as nice as the ones you got!

  9. Debbie,
    Thanks for joining my party again this year, I am so in the holiday mood right now... What fun finds, the Shiny Brites are fantastic!

    Best wishes,
