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 in the Stores: Country Folk, 2013 Christmas Tour, Part 2

 Welcome to Part 2 of my Tour of Country Folk Store.

July 29, 2014:

Christmas Countdown Linky Party

I am linking up this post from last season about our visit to Country Folk Gifts. I am looking forward to seeing how it will be decorated for this Christmas Season!!

Thanks for the party, Sherry!!!

Please take some time to visit this lovely Lady's party!!

2013 Christmas home Tour: A Christmas Candy Kitchen, from last week's Simple and Sweet Fridays!
Thanks so much , Jody and Stan!!

Please visit and link up to this wonderful party!!

Back to the Country Folk Tour.......

If you missed Part 1, please click HERE

And now we will continue and I will try to let the pictures do most of the talking........
I do love the Deer but I am a staunch advocate of NOT HUNTING these beautiful animals or any animal for that fact so I have to say that I prefer them this way and NOT mounted!!!
I LOVE this Blue Room.....

This gives me ideas for my Den for next year since I did not get to decorate it this year...
Now we will go up to the 3rd Floor.....
Left over from Thanksgiving.....
Cute idea!
Does this floor look familiar?????
And now on to the Display House!!!

This is my very favorite part of the Tour!!
On the Porch......
Outside the House.....
As you enter, you walk into a little enclosed porch area......
 Then you step into the Kitchen.....
  The Dining Area......

 Blue again........
 The Living Room.......

 At the top of the stairs......
 The first Bedroom.......
 The second Bedroom.......
 Once again, loving the Blue.....
 Looking out the windows.....
And now for the room that I went crazy over........

The Bathroom and adjoining Sitting Area!!!
 Notice that the tree is a Wall Tree......
  Now get ready......

 Here is the Bathtub!!!!!
 Totally love this!!!!!!
 Looking in to the Sitting Area.......
 To the Left side.....
 The right side.......
 Have you closed your mouth yet??????

Wouldn't you just love to curl up with a book, a cup of tea and a good book in here.......

Stunning, huh?????

I am loving the gray in both rooms... Remember that I painted my Powder Room gray this Summer......

The Master Bedroom.......
 Looking into the Sitting Area.....
 Back out in the Bedroom.....
 And now back downstairs and out on the other enclosed porch where you exit the Display House.......
And that concludes my Tour of the amazing Country Folk Store!!!

What did you think????

I am a Lover of Color so I was in my Glory during my visit!  All the reds, greens and blues made my heart sing!!

As I said in Part 1, this may not be my style but I can APPRECIATE the time, planning and the creativity that went into this amazing Christmas display.

Plus, I came away with many ideas for decorating next year using my own items and in my own style.

And I realize that I must visit Country Folks more often Especially at Christmas and I need to go early in November before many things are picked out.

Their 50% off sale starts on Saturday, 12/21 and I am dying to return to shop.  I hope I can!!

They close for the week between Christmas and New Year's because they are a family owned business.....

Once again........

HERE is a link to Country Folk  Facebook site where there are pictures of the Store taken before a lot of things were bought and also some great Halloween decorations. And Please check out the Photo Albums for pictures of last year's Christmas displays!!

HERE is the link to the new web site for Country Folk......

  1. WOW Debbie, this post was incredible and I loved the tour of the fabulous displays. So many great ideas. I just have to go back and look again. Thank you for sharing.
    Wishing you a wonderful week up to Christmas and I love your header here too.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie

  2. Yes, gorgeous beautiful home and decorations. It's like being in a holidays wonderland. Who wouldn't want to visit or live in a home like that? Prim holiday blessings to you Debbie :)

  3. I loved the display house....the bathroom was amazing! Lots of inspiration...using pink instead of blue or red... of course..lol! Hugs, Penny

  4. My mom would have loved that display they put in the bathtub. Goodness what a treasure trove that place is!

  5. WOW Debbie!!! What an amazing place!
    Thanks for taking us there- just incredible.
    I love the style- it is natural country with lots of colour too.
    I totally agree with you about deer... I can't stand even fake or stylised animal heads on display. They look so much better whole and in natural poses.
    Ah that was just the thing to make my heart sing before getting to bed now.
    Have a lovely week leading up to Christmas, find time to relax and also to bargain hunt!
    hugs :)

  6. What an unbelievable place so beautifully decorated and filled with Christmas cheer. So glass you shared this series of great photos with all of us. genie

  7. Amazing - yep amazing. I love that big Noel sign and the bathtub village the best, but it's all so wonderful and magical!!

    Merry Christmas!

  8. I echo the WOWs! What a delight and wonder this is---back for more later, when I can take in all of it.

    Merry Christmas!
