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 is coming and it will be here before we know it!!

I want to show you some of my recent finds!!

First , I bought these at the Dollar Tree!!

The candy ornaments will ,of course, be used in my kitchen , which I am really itching to decorate because we painted it RED this past May!!

And the white trees can be used in so many vignettes......

I stopped in at one of my favorite Thrift Stores , Volunteers of America, the other day and bought these.

This garland is the same one that I use on my Craft Room tree. In the right hand corner, you can see the price of $1.31.

I usually use beaded garland on my trees but this one looks like snow and ice when the tree is lit with white lights.

And I could not pass up this cute little vintage style wreath for $1.61. I am thinking of using it somewhere in the Kitchen.......

And I have been using my 40 % off coupons at Micheal's to buy these ornaments. They only had 2 in this style last year but they have more this year.
I think I have about 2-3 more different ones to buy. I plan on using these on my Guest Room tree.

A while ago, I showed you my Storage Shed. We store a lot of our decorations down there. We did reorganize it and this is how it now looks.

Believe me this is organized.

All of my "made" craft items are to the left when you walk in and next to them are more craft supplies in tubs.
The entire back of the shed is all Christmas... outdoor decorations, the trees are in the left hand corner and crafts to make.
The right hand side is craft florals, garden things and Fall decorations.

We were down there the other day and I pulled out the trees for the upstairs.

I will tell you a little secret......

I have started to decorate the upstairs for Christmas.......

While the whole downstairs is decorated for Fall and Halloween, the upstairs is being decorated for Chrismtas!!

One tree down!!

All I will tell you is that it is pink and white with a touch of green.......

Okay, stop gasping!!

You have to realize that with decorating every room and 14 trees and working full time, I HAVE to start early.

I am showing all of my Halloween and Fall decorations on my regular blog,
