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!!

Let the Christmas decorating begin!!

I have told you before that I have the entire upstairs decorated for Christmas already and have 6 trees in some manner, shape and size up there.

I am off now for a week and will be starting the outside and the downstairs.

I have been making new bows to change up greenery swags in my Living Room a bit.....

And new ones for some things in the Kitchen.....

Been checking out the Dollar Store and look at these place
mats I found!!
Perfect for my Kitchen.....

And here I am in one of my Christmas sweaters getting ready to leave the house to go to the Trans Siberian Orchestra Concert on Friday!!!

If you are going to see TSO in concert this season, You will not be disappointed!! Their Winter Tour for 2011-2012 kicked off yesterday in Wilkes Barre and we were treated with a special guest appearance of Paul O'Neil, TSO's founder, composer, producer and lyricist!!

He performed on stage for several songs with the band and introduced a song that has never been performed LIVE before. He was also at the controls of the lighting and sound and lazers and then walked through the Arena signing autographs and then threw some of his famous leather jackets into the audience!!

I have gone to see TSO about 8-9 years now and it is one of our Christmas traditions so I am now ready to start decorating and playing Christmas songs and watching Christmas movies.

If you would like to see TSO in concert, please scroll down on my side bar to watch a video.....

I have another Craft Fair next weekend so I have been making some new wreaths.....

One with red velvet roses....

White Poinsettias with green accents....

And a red and gold one.....

Still need to make a pink one and a blue one to round out my wreath selection....

I am also glad I am off because of this.....

A Full Moon!!

Things do get a little crazy in a hospital during a Full Moon!!

Can't you just imagine Santa and his sled and reindeer flying by??????

I have a lot to do this week including my scope for my cancer check up. I will be hitting my 5 year mark so if all is well after this scope, I will be done with my yearly check ups!!
