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!

Today, I am sharing our Blue Winter Wonderland in the Powder Room with you.......

Won't you come in?
Last year, we painted the Powder Room gray so this is the second year that it has looked this way.....

Normally, it looks very Victorian with a Paris touch with shades of Pink, White and Black!!
But For Christmas and Winter, It takes on a totally different look decorated in Blue, White and Silver with Snow Buddies!!!
We will start over in the corner to the left when you walk into the room......
I had to turn off the light bar because the glare was too much......
I love to hang shelves to increase my decorating space since I live in a small townhouse.....
And the Powder Room is no exception!!
Snow Buddies on  this shelf with silver trees and candlesticks.....
My new medicine cabinet allows me to decorate the top of it......
With greenery, silver balls and Snow Buddies!!
With lights on....
A "Winter Welcome" slate......
I love to hang ornaments from unexpected places.....
Love the reflection in the mirror....
The darker blue towels were bought at our Church Flea Market this year......
On my small sink vanity.....
Moving around this small room which is also where the washer and dryer are behind closet doors....
On the wall next to the sink......
I replaced the Victorian Ladies with Hats that were in these frames with Christmas Cards from last year and hung them on the wall.......
   A shelf unit.....
 Top shelf....
 The white glass tree came from J.C.Penney's last year.....
Bottom Shelf......
This shelf is for Joe, paying homage to the Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins AHL Hockey Team for which we have Season Tickets for....
The Snow Buddy says "Penguin Hockey"!!
I like the pop of color the darker blue towels provide.....
The blue rugs that I used in here for the Winter bit the dust last year so I bought gray ones at Penney's this year and I will be able to use them year round......

     Tree #9!! 
     For years, I was not able to light this Tree up because it is not close to a receptacle but with Battery operated LED lights, I can now light this Tree......
There is a set of blue mini lights and a set of Cool White lights on the Tree.....
Yes, the Tree is wired right on to the estagere!!
A bow made out of 2 different type of ribbons for the top.....
Decorated with Snow Buddies, silver balls  and icicles.....
White snow village from Target.....

Also battery operated.....
I replaced the black wire stand that I had here with this round stand.......
Again, Battery operated.....

The silver putz church is an ornament that I bought at Big Lots last year and touched it up with Snow Tex this year....
This tissue box is always a conversation piece.....
Santa ornaments....
Over to the other wall........
Told you I like shelves....
And that I hang ornaments from everywhere!!
There is a sconce on each side of the shelf.....
Other side.....
The top shelf on another shelf unit......
The picture is an old Home and Garden Party picture.....
Next shelf..... 
  Bottom Shelf....
The tea lights are light blue LED ones....
The creamer hold Q Tips and the sugar bowl holds cotton balls...............
This swag hangs above the washer and dryer closet....
 And a wreath that I made on the door....
This room will stay like this for the Winter.
I will pull all the Christmas related things out of it and replace them with some Valentine decorations.....

 Is this the LAST part of the Tour you are asking???????

Heck NO!!!

I still have the upstairs to share with you.......
                                              Tree # 10
                                                          Tree #11
        Tree # 12                                                     
                                                        Tree #13
13 Trees?????

There is still Nelson Crest, my Victorian Doll House.......

Truth be told, I did not get to finish the Upstairs.

I did not get to do the 4 foot Tree in the Master Bedroom which is decorated with vintage glass ornaments but I did take some of those and added another Tree to the Living Room.
And I did not get the Craft Room Tree changed over from a Summer tree to a Christmas Tree...
It is still decorated for Summer but hopefully, there will be next year.......

Downstairs, I did not have time to decorate the Den for Christmas but instead it is decorated for Winter but I will wait to show you that after Christmas.
 I do hope you will come back to visit when Our Christmas Home tour continues......
