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!!

Pay Dirt at Sally's!

Yes,  I hit pay dirt at Sally's!!!
 I went to Salvation Army today and was walking down the store long aisle of Housewares and Decor and this caught my eye!
Could I be seeing things but is that a Christmas plate mixed in with all the dishes?????

I took a closer look........

"Winter Wonderland"
And what a beauty she was!

This is what is on the back of this Christmas Collector's Plate........

Royal Windsor Christmas Carol Collection
 As I glance down the aisle, I see more Christmas Collector's plates......

Be still my heart!!

Not only one but 4 of them!!!!

And the price on each is......

99 cents!!!!


This is unusual because our Salvation Army is pretty pricey at times so to find these for only 99 cents is a huge score in my book!!!

"Together at Christmas"
  1989 Avon Plate
"The Magic that Santa Brings"
 1987 Avon plate
 "Home for the Holidays"
1987 Avon plate

  So don't you think I hit pay dirt at Sally's with these Christmas plates?????
