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!!

  6. What a wonderful magazine simply filled with inspiration. So many ideas, eh? I tried to leave a comment on your other blog but alas, the computer kept freezing on me. Anyway, I do love your dollhouse! It may not be summer outside but your dollhouse is looking wonderful! Soon Spring will be here and all that nasty ice and snow will disappear until next winter. Or we hope! Thanks for sharing, Debbie. Hope you are well these days.


  7. Drool! Drool! Thanks for taking the time to share with us. Makes me think of curling up with a friend and mooning over Tiger Beat mags when I wasa teenie-booper!

  8. Ooooohhhh! I wish I had that issue--don't know how I missed it. Just LOVE the Victorian period!

  9. Debbie,I am so sorry to be late commenting on this beautiful post. I love it and if you do not mind, I am going to be pinning a lot of the pictures to my Christmas board on Pinterest.
