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!!

It's the 25th of the month....Happy Rudolph Day!

Since last year, I have been aware that some bloggers do a post relating to Christmas on the 25th of every month and call it Rudolph Day. I have loved this idea since I first came across it and I have vowed to do the same , only to forget about it .....

But I made a note to remind myself and attached it to my computer armoire so I would remember.

You remember that I made this Christmas Planner in the beginning of the year so I could be more organized with everything that has to do with Christmas.

Well, I have done some work in it but unfortunately, no where near what I wanted to accomplish.

If you follow my other blog, Debbie-Dabble ( and I do wish that you would) , I have mentioned some health problems that decided to rear their ugly head about the 3rd week in Jan.
Since then, I have been trying to keep up with everything that I wanted to do but it has been a bit of a struggle as I have not felt well.

After a trip to the ER with abdominal pain. I have been given a diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome . That was after several Dr. visits and tests. Those tests discovered other things that have lead to more tests that are still going on. There are Thyroid issues that were discovered and I will be seeing an Endocrinologist when all the testing is completed.

Hopefully, once this is all settled, I will get myself back on track.

Now back to Rudolph Day. I was wondering what I was going to do a post about when I received a package in the mail.
I was so surprised to see that it was from Lynn whose Blog is Life on the Wienee Ranch.
Lynn and I became acquainted over Christmas . Lynn has had back surgery and has been dealing with a lot of pain issues so please say a prayer that she will feel better soon.

Inside the package were 2 beautiful ornaments!!

So pretty!!
And this amazing book!!

Lynn said that she had picked it up at a yard sale and it reminded her of me!!

I have taken some pictures of the inside because I wanted to show you the beautiful illustrations!!

And a pop up present!!

Yes, this is just my style and I LOVE this sweet book and the ornaments!!
Thanks so much, Lynn!!

Now many of you know, I keep up some of my trees and decorate them for other Holidays.

I had 5 Valentine's Day Trees and 2 Winter Trees. Please click HERE to read.

I left my 4 ft. Tree up in the Den and I decorated it for St. Patrick's Day. Many of these ornaments were bought at After Christmas sales since some stores carry Irish themed ornaments. I also added vintage postcards as ornaments.....

And now I have 2 Easter trees....

My Living Room Easter Tree.....

And my Dining Room Pink Easter tree with my Bunny Village underneath!

Trees and Villages are not just for Christmas as you can find them for almost every Holiday now.
If you would like to see my Living Room Easter decorations, please click HERE and my Dining Room decorations, please click HERE

You can also make ornaments of your own for other Holidays.
Here are some Valentine's Day ornaments that I made...

My Living Room tree will stay up after Easter and I will decorate it as Patriotic tree for the Summer.
The tree in my Craft Room stays up year round . Soon I will be decorating it as a Summer Tea Cup and Rose tree.

Well, that is it until next month on April 25th for another Rudolph Day!!

  5. I'm surprised with all the holiday decorating you do every month that you have the energy to plan for Christmas year round. I have told you many times Debbie....you gotta bottle some of your energy up and sell it. You are a very creative woman to think of ways to bring the festive spirit to each holiday and to find ways to share it with others.
