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!!

This is what I would have liked to have seen during the Christmas season!!

Doesn't my Outside Winter Decorations look prettier with a frosting of snow??

Wait!! Outside Winter Decorations????

If you missed my post on my Outside Winter Decorations on Debbie- Dabble, Please click HERE

Below are a few pics without snow.....

I kept up the garland but took away all Christmas related items....

Added a Winter wreath to the front door.....

Snow flakes added the the garland....

And of course, all lit up at night....

The wreaths on the windows were replaced with lighted snowflakes....

The other day we had a dusting of snow....

You can see the flakes falling in the pictures......

A frosting on the black skates......

This Penguin says it all......

A Welcome Snow Man Slate.....

The winter arrangement of greenery in the basket.....

Love how the garland looks with a frosting of snow.....

Looking down toward the Flower Bed....

Told you this flower bed looks better with snow....

Mother Nature's Beauty...

It only stuck to the grass and not the roads ....

And in the back yard....

I think this snowman is looking for more snow....

Now I know that we will most likely get more snow than shown in these pictures during the Winter of 2012 here in Penna.

I truly do love Winter.

As a kid, growing up in the snowy decades of the 60's and 70's, I remember there being snow on the ground all Winter. I built snow forts and snow men in the back yard.

And We would sleigh ride on the road in front of my parent's home all the time. In thinking about this, I now realized that they must have not plowed and salted that road very good that we were able to always sleigh ride on it......


And my favorite thing was taking my dog, Ginger , out for a walk at night when it was snowing through out the development of new homes in which I lived growing up.

I still love Winter.

BUT after 34 years of driving through snow, sleet and freezing rain because hospitals do not have snow days, I look forward to the days that I can admire the snow from the window of my home and not have to drive any where in it!!

  8. Everything just sparkles in the snow! Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!

  9. I agree Snow makes everything look mosre festive! Being a Californian and not growing up with snow I didn't know what I was missing until we lived in Kodiak Alaska for 3 yrs. Back in CA now and never thought I'd miss shoveling snow! But there is nothing like fresh fallen snow...so pristine and beautiful.

    I just don't understand why we can't get even just a little..believe me it gets cold enough here!! LOL
