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!!

My Christmas Card to all of you from our Home to Yours!..........

"I have a list of folks I know, all written in a book
 And every year at Christmas Time, I go and take a look!
 And that is when I realize that these names are a part,
  Not of the book they're written in, but of my very own heart.
 And while you may not be aware of any special link,
 Just meeting you shaped my life, more often than you think.
 For once you've met somebody,the years cannot erase
 The memory of a pleasant word or a smiling , friendly face.

So never think my Christmas cards are just a mere routine
 of names upon a Christmas List forgotten in between.

For when I send a Christmas Card that is addressed to you,
 It's because you're on that list of folks that I am indebted to.

And every year when Christmas comes, I realize anew,
  One of the biggest gifts life can give, is meeting folks like you!
 And may the Spirit of Christmas that forever and ever endures
Leave its richest blessings in the heart of you and yours!"


Wishing all of you a Joyous, Healthy and Wonderful Merry Christmas!!


Many Hugs,
