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 was wondering what I would post about today on Rudolph Day....

I went to Michaels this morning , looking to see if anything was left from Christmas and specificly looking to see if they had did this yet or if I had missed it......
 Yep, you are seeing that right......

Grab Bags for $2.00!!!!

When seasonal decor does not sell at 90% off, they make up grab bags for $2.00 each to get rid of it.

I found this out last year after Valentine's Day when I bought several bags.......

I bought 6 bags for $2.00 each, spending $12.00 on the bags.

Now I knew that there was a lot of Kid's things in the bags but I figured that I would take my chances and give the Kids stuff to a Co Worker of mine who has 4 grandchildren.

 Her daughter has 3 of her own, adopted one that she fostered and currently is fostering another little girl and may be adopting her and her baby sister.  It takes a special type of person to do things like that. Plus she works for the local School District in the library. She has a Master's Degree in Library Science.

Bag # 1
 Definitely worth the $2.00.  I knew these were in that bag!!! LOL!

Bag # 2
 The Santa Kits will go to my Co Worker ......
 The cards and the clothes pins for Crafts were again, worth the $2.00!

Bag # 3
 I will be keeping these things......
 What the heck is a head massager???????
 I will be trying it on Joe!! LOL!

And this is a Bottle Cozy, perfect for my water bottle!

Bag # 4
 Pay dirt for $2.00!!!!!
 Florals I will use and the sticker books will go to the Kids......

Lots of things for crafting which I will keep some and the rest will go to the Kids.....
 Like those birdhouses which I will be keeping......
 The foam stockings and gingerbread man makes a great template for a pattern.....

Bag  # 5
 Now what the heck are the chances of me buying a Grab Bag containing a stocking with a D on it ??????

Get it...D for Debbie!!!

 Lots of goodies in that one too!!

And Bag # 6
More florals and a few craft kits for the Kids......
  All in all, I think I got my monies worth and I am sure that my Co Worker will be thrilled with the goodies that I will be bring her tonight for her grandchildren!!

I have been re-decorating the house for Winter and Valentine's Day.

I am still not finished but I have used some of the things that I bought after Christmas this year ....

  1. Looks like you did hit it right and yes you did get your moneys worth I would say. Wish we had Michaels closer but closest for us is 35 miles either north or south.

    Try to get5 to Jackson every couple of months to go to Sams Club and always have to stop at Michael's.

    Come to think of it I will be right almost beside Jacksons' Monday when I go in for the second lesson on my sewing/embroidery machine. Just may have to leave early Monday.


  2. How many lovely Christmas finds! I like everything

  3. I saw those bags at Michael's but didn't buy any....shame on me! You got some great stuff Debbie! Hugs, Penny

  4. If it wasn't so cold I would go to Michael's today :) ..love seeing all your goodies !

  5. That was a real haul you found! It's nice you can use the colors for other holidays, like Valentine's Day and St Patrick's Day.
