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!!

Christmas Creations....

 Today, I am linking up a post from last season to Countdown to Christmas Linky Party over at
The Journey Back!!
My friend, Sherry, loves all things Christmas and is hosting a weekly Countdown to Christmas Party!!

She was kind enough to feature my post, Review of The Christmas Cottage Journal 2012!

Thanks so much,Sherry!!

Please stop by and visit and/or link up new or past Christmas posts to this great Holiday party!!


I just wanted to show you a few things that I made for the Craft Fair for our Church that I was a Co-Chair of and a Vendor at......

But first, I want to thank Kathe , over at Kathe with an  E, 
for featuring my post,Christmas in the Stores : Big Lot's , as a Bonus Feature from last week's
You're Gonna Love It Tuesday Party!!
 And I also want to Thank Sandi, over at Rose Chintz Cottage, for featuring my post,
Christmas in the Stores: Wegman's, as the second highest Viewed post from last week's Home Party.
Thanks so much , Sandi and Kathe!

Please take some time to visit and link up to these great parties!!!

And now, a  few Wreaths that I made......

These I saw on Hometalk using items bought at the Dollar Tree!

Here is the LINK  to the post from Angela at Twelve Oaks Manor!!

I made several and sold a few!!
 Two of them stayed home with me.....

And ended up on top pf our TV Entertainment Center in the Living Room!!
  And this is the same concept using a plate charger. I did not glue the candle ring down , leaving the option to change it for different seasons and Holidays!
I sold several of these too!

Here are several other Christmas Crafts that I have made over the years......

Some Ornaments......
  A Tussie Mussie......
Or two......
And a  Few Plaques.....
 As you can see, some I have in my own home.

I will be sharing more in my Annual Christmas Home Tour.........

In a few days, I will be posting Part 2, The Living Room so I hope you will come back to visit!!

I did get disappointing news recently...

Our local A.C.Moore Store is closing.....

Boo Hoo!

I really liked A.C. Moore. The nearest one will now be about a half hour drive for me.

The entire store is now 40% off and each week , the Percentage off will go up. So I will be stocking up on the things that I like to buy there.

I hope you will join me for my Christmas Home Tour !
