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!!

Yes, It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas at our Home!!

A Few Sneak Peaks.....

The outside is decorated and no, I don't have it lit at night yet. I took some pics when I turned on the lights to see how everything looked.

It is our Christmas tradition that the outside of the house will be all lit up on Thanksgiving Day night, ushering in the Holiday season!

The kitchen is finished except for the tree which I will be decorating today....

I have been itching to do the Kitchen since we painted it red in the summer.....

To me, this sign says it all.....

The Dining Room is also finished...

Including the tree....

The village with a new tree added....

Lots of pink Santa's....

Well, what do you think????

I am doing a Craft Fair this weekend and here are 2 more wreaths that I made.....

Next week, I will start my HOME TOUR!

I will start with the outside of the house first and then do a post on each room. I will link the post together so at the end, you will be able to go through my home, room by room , starting with the first post featuring the outside.

I hope you will come back for the tour!!
