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!!

I decided to take you on a little tour this year of our home all lit up in the Evening.......
First , we will see how our townhouse house looks at night all decked out and lit up........
I do want to show you pictures of the outside that I took last night during the snow storm that hit the east coast.
 This was after I shoveled the sidewalks for the 3rd time......
 Joe worked in it, delivering mail , all day.....
 And I had the pleasure of driving to work in it at night.......
 Because, Hospitals do not have snow days and do not shut down during a storm......
 I am not afraid to drive in snow because I have driven through all kinds of weather for 35 years BUT......
 I am just tired of having to drive in it and long for the days when I can admire it from my windows and not have to worry about having to go out in it to get to work.......
 Enough of that.....

Won't you please come in.........
 When you walk in the front door and look straight ahead, this is what you see.....
 The garland on the stair railing.....

The Living Room

Joe's Grandmother's Hutch......
The corner by the stairs.....
Looking down the Hall Way toward the Kitchen....
You can see the Dining Room Tree lit through the curtains on the window divider.....
The other corner by the Dining Room....
My Praying Santas....
Looking over at the Tree.....
The wreath lit on my fake window......
The Tree and Village

On top of the Entertainment Center......

The Powder Room

I have a set of blue and white battery operated lights on this Tree.....

The Blue does not photograph well no matter what I tried so I apologize.......
Little LED lights on the shelf....
I turned off the blue and it is really no better........
But you get the picture.......
And that concludes our Evening Tour and it also concludes our 2013 Christmas Tour of our Home!

 I hope you enjoyed our Christmas Home Tour of our little townhouse this year......
