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!!

  1. Debbie - I would be HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY to join in on your CHRISTMAS in JULY! I am so far behind - it is scaring me! BUT this will help me to get on my toes and get my fanny in gear! LOL! So, let me know how you want to work this - I will try and post at least once a week - working full time with a 3 hour commute is rather CRAZY and leaves me very little time at home with my family - so I have to do the best quality time with them first -but I will certainly do my very best and support you - after all, Christmas IS my FAVORITE too!!!

    Thanks for the invite - and wish us all some magic Christmas luck!


  2. Make your own christmas cards with latest design within 5 steps. Lots of other new designs which is easy. Making a greeting card at home can be fun and interesting so why you not try with that?


  3. Love these Spirit of Christmas books. I own a number of them, but not this one. From the looks of it, this is one that I should try to find!
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh my, I can't even think about Christmas yet, but this is all so gorgeous. I love to look. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  5. Oh I can't even think about Christmas. But I know if I'm going to do anything craftwise I better get started. Thanks for the reminder and for linking up to the All Stars Block Party.

  6. Love Christmas books! Thank you for sharing this at the Make it Pretty Monday at The Dedicated House. Wishing you a grand evening. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  7. THanks for the inspiration!
    Thanks for linking!
    Stacey :o)

  8. Love browsing at your Christmas books. Thanks for sharing this post on Simple & Sweet Fridays.


  9. I knew you were a Christmas Elf in disguise! This sounds like fun - I'll let you know if I can come up with something - perhaps thinking of Christmas will cool things down here! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

  10. I watched two Christmas movies today! Ha Ha! We are getting Nick ready to head off to college in Kansas! I am going to get into my Princess House stash so I can sell off lots of it! If the weather hadn't been so darn HOT here I could have started sooner. I use to love doing Christmas in July sales! Always a joy to visit you here. Hugs Anne

  11. Debbie Good morning, my name is Silvia and I am Brazilian, I knew your blog and loved.
    The Christmas is a dream for me. I am 50 years old but I will be a child. My mother not celebrating Christmas in a beautiful way. I grew up watching many movies like: the miracle of 34th street, the Waltons Family's Christmas, and Partridge Family, and others.
    And always dreamed that when I grew up would make a beautiful home. In Brazil it is summer time, but still put my embellishments. I've been in New York a few years ago and bought at Macy `s summer many decorations, Santa doing surfing, parachuting, skiing on water.
    I invite you to see my Blog. Your new follower
    hugs and good week
