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!!

Trees All Year Long 2011!!

As part of the Christmas in July Celebrations in Blogland, I thought I would once again show you that you don't have to take down your trees or tree after the Christmas Holidays are over.

I did a similar post on this at the end of last Holiday season but I thought I would share with you my Trees of 2011 since I did change things up a bit.

I left my 7 ft. Living Room Tree up after Christmas and turned it into one of my Valentine's Day Trees!!

I decorated this Valentine's Day tree with a red and gold color scheme.....

I also kept the 7 ft. slim Dining Room Tree up and turned it into my Pink Valentine's Day Tree...

Pink and white was the theme for this tree.....

I set up a small white feather tree adorned with silver, pink and gold hearts.....

It was also in the Dining Room.....

Just added some red hearts to my Powder Room tree after taking all the Christmas oriented Snow Buddy ornaments off this tree. I left on only the Snow men ones for Winter.......

The Den Tree also became a Valentine's Day Tree......

Burgundy, blue and ivory was the color theme of this tree......

And then for Easter, the Dining Room tree was packed away, the round table that is normally in this corner was put back and a Pink Tree was placed on the table and decorated for Easter!!

This tree casts such a wonderful glow at night.......

The Living Room Tree was also taken down to our storage shed and this 5 foot potted tree was brought home from the shed and set up.

It also became an Easter tree....

This was decorated with bright Easter colors......

The tree in my Craft Room was kept up and I decided to decorate this with tea cups, roses , birds and butterflies for the summer.....

I even used real tea cups......

The 5 foot potted tree will now stay in the Living Room until the 7 ft. Christmas tree comes back from the storage Shed and is decorated for Christmas.

This tree is now a Patriotic Tree and I will keep it decorated like this until September 11.

And then I will decorate it as a Fall Tree.....

I already bought some new ornaments at the end of last holiday season that are copper colored leaves and green acorns......

So at the end of this coming holiday season and there is clearance on ornaments, take a good look, think outside the box and imagine what you could use to decorate trees for all seasons and holidays through out the year and keep that wonderful glow from a lit tree in your rooms all year long!!!

  1. Did my comment get sent? I wrote that I admire your valentines' trees with all of the hearts and also the tree with tea cups is cute.

  2. Hi Debbie,

    I love seeing all your trees and your rooms also. Each tree is so pretty and I love enlarging and looking at the ornaments. My favorite is the teacup tree. Absolutely stunning!!

  3. I love your Christmas trees for all seasons. They are beautiful! We keep a tree up all year long in our living room. We call it the Angel tree because it is mostly angels.

  4. Oh Debbie! Your house is just too lovely! My favorite tree is your Easter tree! Heavenly! (well bc of the pink you know). So funny because I am eye balling my tree ornaments, thinking about how nice it would be to have at least one tree up. Giggles! Merry Christmas in July!

  5. I am sure you know I just love the trees. Had seen all but the fall tree. I love that one. Still have mone in red, white, and blue also.

    I also look for the after holidays sales for things I can use the following years on my trees. Maybe someday I will have enough to actually leave my large tree up. Of course George my from on a big one up all year. Latest I managed large one was Easter one year.;

    Hope that you nhave awonderful week. Hot here yet.


  6. The pink tree in your dining room took my breath away! I'm feeling a strong need for a pink tree now because of you! *winks* All your trees are wonderful! I can certainly see why you leave them up...I'd never want to take them down either. Vanna

  7. Thanks for bringing all of your seasonal trees to Seasonal Sundays.
