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!!

Victorian Homes Holiday Edition 1994, Happy Rudolph Day!!!

Happy Rudolph Day!!

It is July 25th and that means 5 more months to Christmas!!!

This year, I will be part time and I have bowed out of all volunteer commitments that I had in the past so I will be free to decorate to my heart's content!!

I am so looking forward to it!!

I plan to start posting here more often as we get closer to this year's Christmas Season........

Today, I will be featuring one of the many magazines that I collect........
It is an oldie for sure...The Holiday Edition of Victorian Homes from 1994!!!

There are a lot of beautiful photos in it so I will let the pictures do the talking!!


I love an Old Fashioned Christmas and being a Victorian at Heart, I love this style of Christmas Decorating!!

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do!

I keep several Trees up year round and decorate them for every Holiday and Season.......
Right now I have 2 Patriotic Trees in my Living Room........

  1. Oh sweet Debbie, thanks for sharing this gorgeous issue, indeed!
    I am going to pin it to save it for the coming C'mas décor inspiration... and you my friend, don't need to get inspired by any magazine, you do a fabulous job all year round!

  2. How fun to browse thru the pages of this magazine. It's all sooo pretty.
    While I don't do Victorian, I do love an old fashioned Country Christmas.

    I am wondering...you have so many parties listed that you are linking with, do you go to each and every one, link, leave a comment...??? That must take a looong time. :)

  3. I have the old Victoria magazine Christmas books too, lovely photos and fun projects. Found you on Saturday Sparks, following now on Bloglovin as I love Christmas projects too.

  4. Victorian decor is ageless....it's still gorgeous today~ Christmas and fall decor is already in the stores, it makes me realize how fast this year is going! hugs...

  5. Hi Debbie,
    You got my attention with that Victorian Homes magazine! I have that exact same one, and lots of other good oldies too! I am so disappointed in the newer copies, and have been for a few years now. Not what they used to be that's for sure! Several of the pages you showed are of the Vaile Mansion, here in Missouri, near Kansas City! I have even done a post on it for their annual Strawberry Festival in June. I just went this past June for the second time. Been to the mansion 5 or 6 times all together though. :)
    Thanks for sharing such beautiful Victorian images with us.
    Happy Sunday and take care,

  6. Gorgeous magazine, so much inspiration!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  7. Your comment on My post greeted Me at 6 am this Morning.I was so happy to see it was You because I was excited to jump on over to all the fun and pretties I knew I would see. The bedroom took My breath away.Your home is so pretty this Summer in red white and blue.Yes,I have started thinking about Christmas,it happens every Year in July-OX Denise

  8. Eek, I love Christmas, and always love reading your Christmas posts too :)

    Thanks for linking up :)

  9. The years fly by don't they? How charming are these pictures? Happy Rudolph day!


  10. I buy that magazine from time to time. when I was younger I wanted a victorian home SO bad.

    I know 2 people now with Victorian homes and they are disappointed in that magazine today, however Richard Cottrell from Old Old Historic Home blog has been in twice maybe 3 times

    I love the Christmas pictures

  11. I love taking a peek into these older mags... Victorian never goes out of style!

  12. Victorian Christmas décor is so gorgeous! Love it! So glad you shared with us at Merry Monday.

  13. What a great post, your putting me in the mood for Christimas, after all thats when things start appearing in the stores.
    Thank you for sharing on Friday Features this week!
    Hope you have a beautiful week!

  14. Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner?? Where has the time gone? :)

    Your magazine is simply beautiful and full of lovely decorating ideas. Thank you so much for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs and blessings!

  15. Debbie, I think it's fun now and then to browse through an old magazine. Christmas décor never goes out of style and often trends will be popular again. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  16. So pretty! Wish I could live in an old Victorian!
