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!

We last left off here in the corner of the Living Room, looking down toward the Hall way to the Kitchen.....
 And so far I have shown you 2 Trees........

Today we pick up on the other side of the Living Room.....
This wall divides the Livng Room and the Dining Room......
I re- decorated this bird cage for Christmas and hung some Christmas plaques.....
This is the antique table that is next to the chair where I usually sit watching TV....
I have had these Carolers for many years.....
A cute Bearington Bear....
Pillows on the chair.....
Looking into the Dining Room....
The round table over in this corner....
I had different shelves on this wall but I recently bought these cherub ones  ( one for each side) for $9.99 a piece in Gabes....

Sort of a Collection of Santa's on this tables.....
This Santa was bought on Clearance in Wegman's last year....
That is a gold tray that I stood up behind the crystal candle stick......
My Praying Santa's....
This nutcracker stands on the floor by the table....
My "fake" window.......
See the Cherub shelves on each side of the mirror....I mean fake window.....
I always hang a wreath for every season on this mirror....
I added a gold topper and some of the candle ornaments that I used on the large Tree in the Living Room.....
I made the plaque in the middle.....
Looking toward the tree.....
To see more of the Tree and Village, please click HERE
I made the swags long time ago and just keep changing the bows from time to time....
On the side of the TV entertainment center is this vintage 3 shelf table.....
The top shelf.....
Those 2 cute snowmen were bought in Gabes for only $4.00 each!!
The second shelf....
And the bottom shelf....
What do I have in that big box????

That is where all my Christmas DVD's are stored......
The TV Entertainment Center.......
I treat the top of it like a mantle.....
The Carolers are a set that was bought in Sam's Club many years ago.....

Those 2 Trees are Trees # 3 and # 4.........
New this year are the gold pots that I placed the trees in.  They were bought at an Estate Sale in the Summer.
And the Mercury Glass Trees are part of a set of 4 that I bought at Sam's Club this year....
Also there are Warm White LED Battery operated lights on the trees and in the "snow" so there are no lights that needed to be plugged in with this display making things a lot easier for me!!
The Mercury Glass Trees  also have remote control operated Battery LED lights in them!!!
On the floor at the base of the TV Entertainment Center....
More of my Bearington Bear Collection.....
Looking toward the Front Door....
Another Swag that I made....
And another round table....
This is also a Sam's Club set bought many years ago....
This Dapper looking Snowman sits on another box of Christmas DVD's.....
And that concludes the tour of our Old Fashioned Christmas Living Room.......
