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!!

I originally posted this last season but now I am linking it up to

Cowgirl Up! Creative Linky Party - Christmas in July 2012

Back to the original post......

I have taken you all through our home decorated for Christmas with the 7 parts of our HOME TOUR.

If you missed any part of the Home Tour, please click on the links to each room on my Side bar or at the top of my blog under Recent Posts..

Now I will show you all 17 Trees together!

Yep, I added 2 more...

I'm calling them accessory trees.

Now remember, I live in a small townhouse!

If it has decorations on it and/or lights up, I count it as a Tree so here we go.....

Living Room- 3 Trees

We will start in the Living Room with my 7 foot tree, Tree # 1.

Decorated mostly in red, green and gold with a Victorian theme....

On the side of the platform is the first one of what I am calling accessory trees. It adds a little bit more light to the Village.

Tree # 2

And the second accessory tree, I added to the vignette on my Victorian chair.

Tree # 3

Dining Room - 2 trees

In the Dining Room , is a 7 foot slim tree, which is Tree # 4

It is decorated in white and pink with mostly Victorian style ornaments

On the buffet , along with one of my villages, it an Alpine tree, which is Tree # 5

I have topped it with a pink bow and added angel ornaments to this tree.

Kitchen Tree

Now we go into the Kitchen for Tree # 6, my Candy and Ginger Bread Tree!

This tree is decorated with candy and gingerbread ornaments

It is a 3 foot tree that sits in a milk can....

Den - 4 trees

Tree # 7 is a 4 foot tree decorated in shades of Burgundy and Ivory.

I also have several Thomas Kinkaide ornaments displayed on this tree.

Tree # 8 is a wire tree that holds several Charles Dickens like ornaments and vintage children ornaments.

Tree # 9 is another Alpine Tree.

I have added a vintage glass topper and several snow men ornaments to this tree.

Tree # 10 is the tree I made for the parlor of Nelson Crest, my Victorian Doll house.

I added roses and ribbon to a bottle brush tree.

Powder Room Tree

The 3 foot tree in my Powder Room is Tree # 11.

Since Snow Buddies is the theme for this room, that is what this tree is decorated with.

Along with silver balls, snowflakes and icicles....

Upstairs - 6 Trees

In the upstairs bathroom on top of the shelf unit over the toilet is a white feather tree.

Tree # 12

This tree is done in purple to match the bathroom.

Master Bedroom - 2 Trees

In the Master Bedroom, is a 4 foot tree that I call " The Tree of my Childhood" because of all the vintage ornaments that I have used to decorate this tree.

Tree # 13

These vintage glass ornaments were bought at Estate and Yard Sales and Flea Markets.

There are also a few Putz House ornaments on this tree.

In Joe's Pittsburgh Corner, is a little Pittsburgh tree.

Tree# 14

I have added Penguins, Pittsburgh Penguin Hockey and Steeler Football ornaments to this tree.

Craft/ Sewing Room - 2 Trees

On top of on of the shelf units in my Craft Room is Tree # 15, a small white tree decorated with angels and Victorian mini ornaments.

This is Tree # 16, my 6 foot slim tree.

I call it my Shabby tree since I have decorated it in pink, white and sage green.

And for my last and final tree for 2011, is my Guest Room tree which is Tree # 17.

This is a 6 foot potted tree that is decorated in bright pink and white.

I have added crocheted snowflakes and clear icicles to this tree.

Well there you have it, 17 Trees!!

Have I ever told you that I LOVE ornaments and that is why I have so many trees?????

What can I tell ya, it is a sickness!

    Thankfully our tree sickness is benign!

  14. Happy Pink Saturday, Debbie. My, oh my, what a busy girl you must be with work and trimming your home. I cannot believe you have 17 trees!
    I like the gingerbread and candy tree and your shabby tree best, I think although it is hard to choose a favourite.
    I wish my friends could see yours because they always thought I was crazy for Christmas. I guess I've met my match!

    My hubby just came and looked at Joe's collection. I suppose he's a big Sid the Kid fan, is he? Sidney Crosby hails from our part of the country; Easten Canada.
    My hubby figures you are worse than me for the decorating. Yup, I guess you've got me beat! LOL

    Thanks for sharing and have a delightful weekend.

    Christmas blessings,
