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!

New since last Christmas Season.......

I have a Button for this, my Christmas blog!!!!!!
 Made for me by the wonderful Robin , over at Fluster Buster!!

Feel free to Grab It from my Side Bar!!!

Now I would like to share some of my recent Christmas finds with you!!

Some I already posted over my my regular blog, Debbie Dabble........

These pretties were 3/$1.00 at a Town Wide Yard Sale I went to in June!!
 I grabbed them as fast as I could!!

I bought these at a Church Flea Market.......
 Loved the soaps and the price of them too!!
And at the same Flea Market, this green depression glass bowl for 25 cents!!!
 It will match several others that I use at Christmas time.

This can be used for Christmas and left out for the entire Winter.......
Brand New and only $4.99 at Salvation Army!!!!
 This Christmas swag was $5.99 at Salvation Army!!
 This past weekend, Joe and I went to an Estate Sale in our townhouse development and also to a Florist Shop and Warehouse Liquidation Sale!!!

What fun I had!!!!

Here are some Christmas things that I bought......

At the Estate sale, I bought this set of Angels were $1.00
 They were used as ornaments but they have hooks on the back to hang them on the wall and are plaster like and say made in Italy on the back of them!!!!!

Not sure how I will use them yet......

At the Florist Shop and Warehouse,I bought these there in the Gift Shop section.....
 They will be perfect in my Kitchen!!
 Check out the price for each one!!!
 Yes, only $3.00 each!!!!!!  From $12.50!!!

At 1:00 pm, everything was dropped to half price so we went back!!!!!

These were $1.00!!

 They will go somewhere in my Powder Room.......

These were originally $4.00 each but went down to $2.00 each!!
 I may do Christmas arrangements in them to sell at the Craft Fairs i do or i may just keep them.....
 More ornaments that went down to $1.00 each!!
 See the original price!!
 OOOPS!! I had the blue one turned around......
 You may remember that I did this Christmas Tablescape last year using these Old Curiosity Shop dishes......
   I only had a few pieces until.......

I went to Salvation Army and found these.....
 There were more and I should have bought them but I didn't and I can now kick myself but I am glad with what I did buy!!
 They look very Charles Dicken's Scrooge like to me and that is why I like to use them at Christmas!!

Each piece was only $1.00 each!!!

I added a new Header picture for this blog too....
I love this photo of the front of our house with snow.....

It is hard to believe that it now looks like this......
 What a difference!!!!

Do you see those urns......

Our Church was throwing them out because they were falling apart......
Well, they looked perfect to me and came home with me!!

I am so looking forward to decorating them for Christmas .......

I have pathway trees that i may stick in them and then decorate the trees with red shatter proof balls.......

What do you think????
