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!!

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!!

We had a wonderful time with our family and they ate me out of house and home!!

That is fine though!!

I worked last night on Christmas Day night. Not too bad, only 9 patients and very quiet.

Joe was off today so I sent him to Sam's Club for this.......

I would not be out of work in the morning for the 7 am opening.....

Yes, deco mesh which I thought would be half price!

WRONG!!! Regular price was $6.92 so I thought it would be $3.00 and change. Joe fought off about 40 people he said to get in the doors and he was so proud of himself being first one up to the registers and then he finds out all Christmas is NOT 50 % off and my deco mesh was one of the items not reduced!!

He tells the clerk she better beware because it is going to get ugly when all those other shoppers come to get checked out!!

Never got my Deco Mesh but I will check tomorrow on my way home from work....

We went to Target and I was very disappointed so that was a bust!

I drove home and went to bed while Joe ventured out again.

When I got up in the afternoon, I found that he had bought me one of my favorite Calendars at the Calendar Kiosk in our Mall for 50% off.

Love the Cynthia Hart Calendars.....

Then I had been talking about wanting a white tree.

And I was pleasantly surprised to find out he had gone to WalMart and braved the crowds there and bought me a 6 1/2 foot pre lit white tree for $19.00!!


Now you are thinking where in heaven's name am I going to put this tree. Well, I will figure that out next Holiday season but I think it will be replacing a tree I already have.

So that is it as far as my bargains or lack there of.

I did get another camera and it is charging so hope to have some new pictures posted tomorrow. I have to send the "old " new camera back into the company.

Hopefully, I will be back with another post in a day or two when I figure out the new camera......



  1. So glad that you got your white tree. I love mine I got last year though did wait till a week or two after Christmas. That is why mine was so much cheaper. They had way too many left too so they really knocked down the price.

    Too bad you could not get the mesh clearenced. I think I got mine 2 years ago after Christmas and did not know what to do with it last year. Was glad I saw wreaths done with it this year as that gave me the idea for it on the tree. I plan on going to HL later in the week and hope they still have some things. May have to go tomorrow. Need ornaments for next year's center tree. They most likely will go fast. I know they are alrady 66% off there. (I promised no more trees but that may change if I find a black one.

    Have a great New Years.


  2. We know what should be half-off after Christmas, right? My daughter had the same issues with a new Kitchen-Aid mixer and had to have it replaced. Something must be wrong with quality control.

    Enjoy the rest of the holiday season. For me this is the second day of Christmas and it continues until Epiphany. Just don't understand why it all has to be over at midnight, December 25.♥♫

  3. Can't wait to see what you do with your white tree next year! I'm keeping up our decor at least until the new year! I'm not ready to let it go.

  4. Hi Debbie, Glad to hear you enjoyed a special Christmas with you sweet family. Love your new white tree. The sales are not as good as they advertise. I was disappointed at Micheals.
    Wishing you a grand new year and many blessings.
    Big hugs from Texas, Celestina Marie

  5. Hi lovely lady.
    Will Christmas is over but the love for all the bargains go on for a week or two. I also are looking forward to seeing your white tree all dress up with Ornaments next year. I would like to thank you for your sweet comments on my home and my Christmas tree.
    I hope you and your family have a wonderful New Year from my home to your's
    XXOO Diane
