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!!

Mercury Glass Trees!!!!!!

Mercury Glass Trees for Christmas ....
I know I am supposed to be on a Blog Posting Break but truth be told, I fell walking up my outside steps and landed on of all things...

My Right Knee which is the one that I need to have replaced!!!

So I am home from work, with it elevated and iced and debating about whether I go to the Dr.'s or not......

We will see in a day or two....


I will be posting here now for the duration of the Holiday Season!!!

I just had to share this with all of you!!!!

Now you may have seen them in the Pottery Barn Catalog.........
         Source: Pottery Barn                                                        

Here are the prices at Pottery Barn with free shipping......

 Mini:  6" high  - $14.50
Small: 9" high  -     $29.50
Medium:  17.5"high -    $49.50
Large:  22" high      - $ 69

They also state this:

" Hole on the underside for placement of the lights."

So I am assuming that you have to provide your own lights???????


 Look at this!!!

At Sam's Club!!!!!!!!!

For .....

Yes, that is $39.98 for the set of 4!!!!!!!!
I sent Joe right over for them as soon as I saw them in the Sam's Club Flyer since I am having a hard time walking right now......
  And they have LED lights and are remote control!!!!!
 Okay, maybe some of the trees are not as tall as the Pottery Barn trees.....
  But I still felt this was the Best Buy for my money!!

You are talking $10 a Tree that lights up!!!

Here they are......
 Just flip the switch to "On"at the bottom of each tree and use the slim Remote control and ......

 Love them!!!!
 And yes, you can separate them and still use the Remote Control for lighting each individual Tree!!!

Now I have to decide where I will be displaying them!!

  1. Very pretty Debbie ! Hope your knee gets better !

  2. Debbie, I hope you are feeling better soon. Thanks for sharing the great find at Sam's. I did see the mercury trees at Big Lots this past weekend. However, they were not lit.

  3. Those are really pretty, Debbie. What a bummer about your knee...wonder if that is where the term "bum knee" came from?;>)

    Take good care of yourself. I am sure that is pretty miserable.

    Thanks for the tip on the trees at Sam's! xo Diana

  4. I am so sorry to hear about your knee...I found that I fell more before I got mine replaced too! Your mercury lights are so pretty and I love how they light up! That cold front you are expecting has been in our area for a couple of days now, it's 2 degrees this morning. We moved the tomato and pepper plants into the greenhouse and set up the heat. Hugs, Penny

  5. Praying for your knee recovery. Love the mercury light up trees! Yes, that was a great buy!!! Take some time for yourself while you are recooping! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. I'm happy to see you posting again, Debbie, but so sorry to hear about your fall -- take care of yourself! I love the trees, and I can't wait to see the rest of your decorations. :)

  7. Sorry to hear about your fall Debbie, don't wait too long to see the doctor like I did two years ago when I fell. It's been a nightmare ever since because I did more damage than I thought. I'm like you, I LOVE Christmas and so reading your Christmas blog is going to be such a treat!
    Take care of yourself,
    Marie@The Interior Frugalista

  8. Your poor knee, Debbie! Take good care of yourself and don't be afraid to see the doctor. Love your latest find!

  9. Bad luck about your knee, Debbie; very sorry to hear! Hope you're doing better soon. Love the mercury glass trees.

  10. I hope you feel better. The mercury glass trees are just gorgeous.

  11. Yikes! (about your knee) and EEK! (about the candles!) What a great eye for a bargain! Hope you are feeling better soon!

  12. SO sorry to hear you fell on that knee! gosh i feel the pain from the other side of the world! I hope it gets better to cope with really soon. On the plus side you have time to blog and i can't wait to see the Christmas Debbie Magic!
    We have pottery barn but we dont have a sams but i see the ridiculous pricing comparisons are the same as an equivalent here. Wise choice.
    Rest up now and thank you for sharing with us for Sunday Brunch - missed you last week :)

  13. Good morning Debbie, Im so sorry that you have fallen, I do hope that it will feel better soon. Before you have to have surgery, have you ever heard of Voltaren Gel, it is a prescription and it has done amazing at reliving the pain for my husbands knees and my torn rotarcuff. Feel better soon!!!

    Thanks for stopping by Friday Feature Linky Party

    Hugs, Karren

  14. Very pretty Christmas Trees!!! I love your whole Christmas Blog!!! Thanks for sharing Debbie!!
    Be well soon, Karren

  15. Hi! I saw your "magical" Christmas trees linked on Oh My Heartsie and Clairejustine. I hope that knee gets better soon and the replacement goes well. My weekend linky:

  17. I'm not sure what happened, but Blogger posted my comment twice, so I just deleted one. Now it looks suspect, "Comment has been deleted by author." Blah! It was the same comment twice, nothing else. :)

  18. Oh those trees are so pretty! I'm a sucker for LED light up anything, awesome that they have a remote too. Hope your knee feels better soon.

  19. WELL...I hope you will pardon me while I FALL IN LOVE.
    wow...those are so pretty. I will go to Sams tomorrow and see if we have them in our store. Thanks so so much.
    Now, take good care and I hope your bum knee gets better really fast.
    hugs, bj

  20. Wonderful post filled with so many pretty things. Anyone not in the Christmas spirit will be after reading your blog.

  21. Beautiful! I'll look for those at Costco next time I'm there. I love mercury glass.

  22. Whoo Debbie these are beautiful, loving your blog design :) I love Christmas, my favourite time of the year :):)
    Thanks so much for sharing over at the weekend blog hop:)

  23. Ugh! Hope your knee has not sustained further damage. This is NOT how you are supposed to be getting some rest Debbie. Best wishes as you recover from your fall.
    PS- Love the trees!
    PSS Thanks for the visit!!!

  24. Love love love your Mercury glass trees......they look so pretty lit up. Might have to see if I can find something similar here in Australia.
    HPS Michelle.
    PS thank you for stopping by my blog and your lovely words.

  25. They do look fab and love the remote control too! #theweekendbloghop

  26. I love the trees Debbie - always great when we can find a bargain and you did. I'm sorry to hear about your knee - rest and get better. Thank you for sharing at Share It One More Time. Cathy

  27. Sorry about your knee -- hope it heals quickly! Looking forward to your Christmas posts -- I love the mercury trees! (and always love to hear about a bargain and a deal!)

  28. Looks like a great buy for your money, I love it when you find bargains like these! Popping in from Creative Mondays.

  29. Gorgeous! I just adore these!

  30. Hi Debbie... love your little mercury trees and all the better that they are remote. Seems to be a good bargain too. So sorry about your fall, hope there is nothing broken and you will heal quickly. Take care.

  31. These are so pretty! Thanks for sharing, I'm headed to SAM's this week and will be looking for them. Hope your need feels better soon.

  32. Wow, what a bargain Debbie! These are gorgeous. And they even light up. I have a few that I have picked up over the years at T.J. Maxx. Don't think you can light them up. Maybe you can put a light under them. Never really thought to look. lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    p.s. hope your knee is feeling better! Falling on it is not good!!

  33. First off-I'm so sorry to hear about your knee injury! I hope you feel better and it heals up quickly! I was just hopping over to thank you for sharing those lovely trees on The Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop-and I'm so glad I did! Your blog is amazing, Debbie, and the fact that you've devoted it to my favorite season of all-well,how can I NOT follow you!!! Have a blessed rest of your week!

  34. These are gorgeous and such a great price too! Please take care of your knee and I do hope you're feeling better soon. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

  35. Yikes!! Sorry to hear about your knee, hope you heal up fast. :) I love those mercury trees, I will have to keep my eye out for them, I love how they light up, and mercury glass is one of my favorite things to decorate with this time of year! :)

  36. Well, I'm sorry to hear about your knee. Did you see the doc are are you waiting for the swelling to go down? It does sound very painful.

    I love the mercury Christmas trees and I have to admit, your photograph is much better than the one on the Sam's Club box. Yours look really classy. I love the idea that they're remote control!

  37. I'm so sorry you hurt your knee, Debbie. Ouch!

    Thank you so much for telling us about the trees. I think I may have to invest in a set of those if they're still available! :)

  38. Hi Debbie,
    Welcome back to blog world. I am so sorry to hear about your knee. I have knee problems too. Your mercury trees are gorgeous. I will be featuring them at the next Southern Special. Thanks so much for sharing them with us.
